Richard Rowlands was a 16th-century Anglo-Saxon historian who is probably most recognized by his work “A Restitution of Decayed Intelligence in Antiquities”. First written in 1605, this book focused on the Protestant monarchy in England, its influence, and the reign of King James. However, even though this book discusses the 16th-century England, it was clearly written to praise the early Saxons which is evident by the glossary of Anglo-Saxon words (which is more than half the book).

 

While this work contains descriptions on the origins of ancient people groups such as the Saxons, Normans, and Britons, it is much better known for containing the first English version of the story of the Pied Piper of Hamelin – the German legend of a town rat catcher luring 130 children out of town, never to be seen again! (p.92-93)

 

Other notable topics include origins of naming days of the week and other words, description of ancient pagan idols, existence of Druids and Werewolves, and conquests of William the Conqueror.
