Re: History Major

To tag onto what zem said, Old English is Anglo-Saxon.
Somehow gets frequently confused by people who think the Chaucer they read
in high school was Old English - but it's not, it's Middle English.

I have to say my liberal arts education taught me how to solve problems in a
structured way, and that skill is relevant to any discipline, any topic.  As
are writing skills!  Of course it has been difficult in times past to
persuade a potential employer of that fact...

Hugs to you all,
