Manuscripts Online: Written Culture 1000 to 1500 was
funded by JISC, in November 2011, with the aim to study the written
culture of medieval Britain between 1000 and 1500 by pulling together
and providing access to written and early printed primary sources in
this period. It is a collaboration between the Universities of
Birmingham, Leicester, Glasgow, Sheffield, Queen's University Belfast
and York. Manuscripts Online will provide access to a wealth of data
which are central to the study of English language, literature and
history during the middle ages, ranging from small, AHRC-funded editions
to large cataloguing projects and including resources which are freely
available to the public, available via subscription as well as those
currently unavailable. On our blog
we have already published a list of resources that we plan to include
in the first launch of Manuscripts Online at the end of January 2013.
- Andrew Prescott (King's College,London)
- William Noel (University of Pennsylvania)
