Roland online

Today was the last class meeting of my Chivalry seminar. One member was speaking on the Song of Roland, and she used her laptop computer and NU's wireless network to show us the famous Bodleian ms. of the epic, and to play us an audio clip of someone reciting its first stanza in Old French.

Can I do less? No.

Here's the Bodleian manuscript and the audio clip.
