The inimitable http://​www.​languagehat.​com/​ pointed us towards UCC’s Corpus of Electronic Texts, of which http://​www.​ucc.​ie/​celt/​published/​F250001-001/​index.​html just weirded me out. An epic poem in Old French, about Ferns and people called Kencelath (or Kinsella, as it gets spelled nowadays), Divelin, Obrien, Prendergast, fiz Gerout. Not a location that today would strike anyone as very suitable for setting epic poems in Old French.
