This was posted by someone on the new Midrealm List today... it requires a bit of time to read and listen to (the vocals are in the original language, you can "read" along by clicking on the second tab, but it is also written in modern English).  Simply move your cursor over the objects, and then click when they activate.  This is really cute!!

(BBC History has several interactive history sites, which are loads of fun and youngster-appropriate.)  What is interesting about this one is that you can hear snippets of spoken ancient Anglo Saxon, Dane and Norman English.  Chaucer as it was heard in its own time - It's all so musical!
