Saxon phrase of the day #7: energy

Perhaps the Anglo-Saxons had it easier than we do now. Even if they didn't have solar panels or snazzy wind turbines, at least there were watermills and more wood-burning stoves than you could shake a stick at (or a log, for that matter).

'Our power is green. It comes from the mill' - Ure cræft is grene. Hit cumað of þæm myle ["oor-uh kraft is gray-nuh. Hit kum-ath off tham moo-le"]
