I do not think removing the section about "popular culture" is vandalism. The section does not look encyclopedic. There is no analysis, it looks just like a bunch of google links. /Pieter Kuiper 13:43, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
- The user who removed the section is on a pop-culture-section-removal rampage. He's blindly removed about 100 of them so far. This is not the way such sections are to be handled: as per WP:TRIVIA, these sections are supposed to be kept around for possible improvement or integration with other sections. I've reverted all such edits by this user, as vandalism, because that's what it constitutes. If there are specific reasons why the contents of a section would never be suitable for the article, even if improved and/or integrated into other sections, then specific rationale should be cited, and then the items can be removed. Categorical removal of all pop-culture sections is not acceptable, and will be reverted just as categorically.
- I have looked at the discussions and the articles. I understand why Equazcion did a wholesale revert on a mass deletion, and I have little understanding for Burntsauce's second mass deletion. That being said, the "Popular culture"-list in this article is not worth keeping, in my opinion. /Pieter Kuiper 18:36, 9 October 2007 (UTC)
A small thing; Heorot means Hart, see http://education.yahoo.com/reference/dictionary/entry/hart , not "hall of hart" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 03:24, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
Where is Hronn
Snorri Sturluson states the the Scyldings lived in Geatland, but now is Denmark (year 1200). Are we assuming that Zeeland was a portion of the land of Geats? And it became a portion of Denmark after Beowulfs Time? What is for sure is that 3 counties in southern Sweden most likely was a portion of Geatland, and that is Scania, Halland, and Blekinge, and were under Danish control by 1200. The Beowulf Poem states that Heorot lies on the "Hronnreade" the Hronn Road. Snorri states that Hronn is a Sea, River and a wave. Hronn sounds like a body of water that is having many different aspects to it. The Hronn has to be a fairly large body of water, and it has to have salt water in it at least in some portion of it to be a sea. There has to be a constant current in one direction and fresh water in portion of it for it to be a river. There has to be a constant current so strong that waves are formed on day's when surrounding water is still. For it to be a road it has to be a connection between 2 other bodies of water. Lejre and the Roskilde Fjord doesn't match this description. Another item is that according to the Poem Grendel lived near water falls. This will rule out Zeeland due to the fact that it's completely flat. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 00:04, 2 February 2014 (UTC)KLAS A. PERSSON
