How did old English sounded like

MIT associate professor Arthur Bahr reads a short excerpt of Beowulf in Old English and Sir Gawayne and the Green Knight in Middle English. The complete course can be seen here and it is fascinating that they were able to come up with the sounds that were generated by ancient English.

You will understand some words, but not much. English has evoled quite dramatically over the eons. I guess all the languages have done so.
