WEBINAR

Reading old documents: Introduction to Medieval and Tudor palaeography

In this series of three monthly webinars, you will learn the basic skills required to read handwriting from the past, and discover some tips and tricks to help you get to grips with original documents.

Over the course of the series, you will have the opportunity to discover some of the unique historical documents in our collection, including a widow’s will from the 15th century, legal records from the Star Chamber (one of the most powerful courts in Tudor England) and an inventory of Thomas Cromwell’s house.

All documents will be in English, no knowledge of Latin is required.

This is the second instalment of a three-part series.

The first and third parts of this series can be found here:
