InScribe: Palaeography Learning Materials

InScribe: Palaeography Learning Materials is a new online resource to support the teaching of Palaeography and Manuscript Studies at a postgraduate level for a variety of disciplines. This collaborative enterprise between the Institute of English Studies, the Institute of Historical Research, the Warburg Institute and in association with the Department of Digital Humanities (King’s College, London), will initially cover the English Medieval period, but it is envisaged to include a wider range of periods (from late Antiquity to the 21st century) and geographical areas. Our aim is to provide effective distance training in the various areas attached to Manuscript Studies; to complement (not replace) traditional teaching methodologies; to make a wide range of digital tools and resources available to those members of the public with an interest in the field; and to provide carefully selected bibliographies for each subsection within the module.
