ASNaC Memes for Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Teens

Tweets by cambtweetasnac

Welcome to the Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic society website. This is the student-run society for those studying, or interested in studying, Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at Cambridge University, and any others interested!

If you are thinking of applying to do ASNaC at Cambridge, the best place to look would be the department's information about the course. Alternatively, there's our Alternative Prospectus over at the website of CUSU, the University's Student Union – it was written by the Society's old Access Officer. If you want to know more about the Society than is written below, check the Frequently Asked Questions. The Access Officer also runs the Society's Twitter account, do give it a follow!

Anyway, the ASNC Society runs various social events of varying levels of seriousness throughout the academic year, from the weekly events of ASNC Lunch on Mondays and ASNC Pub on Fridays, through occasional film nights, formals, and so on, to the cycle of annual events: The Hallowe'en/St Rumwold's Day Pub Crawl, the Christmas Party, the Yule Play, a weekend trip in January, the annual Black Tie Dinner, the Society guest lecture, and the Society Picnic at the end of the year. There is also the ASNC Quire, the Department's not-very-serious choir that sings at least vaguely ASNC-related music. If you're a current Cambridge student and are interested in joining the Society, please do contact us!

Also, if you're interested in ASNaC, but don't know where to start, check out our alternative introductory reading list, as well as the Department's more official reading list. They have lots of useful books, and plenty of not-at-all-less-useful fun things too!

ASNaC is always looking for more funnies to cram into its twice-yearly publication Gesta Asnacorum! If, by some great coincidence, anything witty comes to you, feel free to send it to the incumbent Gesta editors! They will do their best to include it in this term's issue of Gesta, and your name will forever be enshrined in glorious written form, ensuring that you go down in history, just like Charlemagne. Previous issues of this illustrious magazine can be perused on our Gesta page. In a similar manner, the Yule Play Officers are always hungry for new sketches for the yearly (as you can probably guess) Christmas-time ASNaC play. It doesn't have to be a strict narrative, it can just be a funny sketch to do with something in ASNaC. All submissions welcome!!! Send them to the Yule Play Editors. Many previous Yule Plays can be watched at the Society's Youtube channel.

We have a Stash store which sells assorted Society merchandise. If you have any funky designs you want included on ASNaC shirts, mugs, posters or other such memorabilia to be available to purchase, please email the Netwalda who will organise their availability from an online store post haste!
