Cameron S. Laird joins the Dictionary of Old English as SSHRC Postdoctoral Fellow after completing his Ph.D. in Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto in 2021, where he wrote on Old English and Latin riddles. He is currently writing several articles on related topics, including Aldhelm’s knowledge of Greek riddles and the origin of the Bern Riddles. His research project at the DOE will be to analyze the compilation of riddles in the Exeter Book using the evidence of Old English philology, prosody, and paleography to show that the Exeter Book Riddles—the sole surviving collection of riddles in Old English—are in fact a composite of formerly distinct collections of riddles, some of which were composed with a knowledge of other riddles in the collection. The Exeter Book thus represents the last remnant of a living, internally dynamic tradition of Old English poetry, a tradition that has now been almost entirely lost. Besides the fellowship at the DOE, Laird continues his work as Editorial Assistant on the Épinal-Erfurt Glossary Project, which is reconstructing the lost archetype of some of the earliest Anglo-Saxon glossaries.
