Beowulf is a story passed down over ages and ages of Anglo-Saxon culture. It tells of the epic hero as he travels to Heorot and defeats the evil Grendel and the beast’s mother. J. R. R.

When Beowulf travels to Heorot, Hrothgar tells him of the great trouble he and his people had faced over many years. Grendel was a menacing and powerful monster that took control of the mead hall when night fell.
