Read the course outline

Explore the development of writing in Medieval England from scribbles and graffiti to elaborate manuscripts. Look at the technology of writing – how parchment was made and how manuscripts were bound and decorated. 

On the second day, consider the work of iconic writers of the period including Geoffrey Chaucer, Alfred the Great and Julian of Norwich, as well as anonymous scribes and lesser known annotators. Discuss the value of these texts at the time and their importance today.
