Tutor: David Wright | Canterbury campus | £100 An introduction to the palaeography of English documents, looking chiefly at 16th- and 17th-century material, including wills, manorial records, parish registers and private letters. Our reading and interpretation will be facilitated by close inspection of letter forms, abbreviations and, crucially, keeping an eye on the scribe’s mind as he wrote and the types of mistakes that frequently occurred. Further study will be offered in the spring term; looking at earlier documents, touching on some basic Latin, and probing further into the fascinating world of textual criticism.
