All the occurrences of Old English bearu 'grove' are taken into examination with the aim to individuate the collocations and the connotations of the word (which occurs both in poetry, prose and the glosses). Special attention is devoted to the occurrences in the Exeter Book riddles and the compound bearunaes, which is a hapax.
