If you have been on our introductory palaeography course at NRO, led by Archivist, Tom Townsend, you will be pleased to hear that he is now offering an intermediate-level course for those wishing to deepen their palaeographical knowledge and skills.
Students will be tackling harder, more current handwriting styles, including the examination of English texts with additional Latin phrases, a deplorable but all too common occurrence in officiel records of many kinds!
Particular emphasis will be placed on the accuracy of our reading, with a view to follow-up transcription opportunities using Great Hospital records.
Some previous palaeographical experience will be an advantage.
Booking essential. £60 per person for the 10 week course, to be paid on arrival, not in advance.
