New online resource for reading medieval handwriting

31 August 2018

On 30 August Dr Margaret Connolly from The School of English and Mrs Rachel Hart attended the Archives and Records Association's annual conference in Glasgow to exhibit their online resource for reading medieval and early modern handwriting (ReadMe!).

Dr Margaret Connolly and Mrs Rachel Hart gave a paper entitled 'The Marchmont Regiam Maiestatem comes full circle: a book and its owners 1548 to 2018' to the Edinburgh Bibliographical Society on 27 September 2018. They also presented their research on this topic to the St Andrews Institute of Medieval Studies on 24 September in a paper entitled 'Book production and circulation in late medieval Scotland: Robert Ewyn and the St Andrews manuscript of Regiam Maiestatem', and on that occasion were able to have the 16th century manuscript on display as well.
