Correlation to Beowulf

More out of curiosity, how many people have heard, or even thought about, the possibility that The 13th Warrior was based on the old English epic Beowulf? It may not have been based directly, but the book Eaters of the Dead was essentially a rewrite of the poem that was turned into a movie called The 13th Warrior. Now, if you read Beowulf (it's public domain, you can find a copy for free anywhere) and then watch The 13th Warrior and still say you can't see the correlation, then good luck to you. Discuss how knowing that has changed your outlook on the movie.
