Description
This will be a workshop in reading and transcribing Gresley from a facsimile of the original. Since the Gresley MS was handwritten about 500 years ago, this will be covering handwriting (paleography), the use of abbreviations and other elements of scribal practice, and early modern spelling. No reconstruction experience is required, but be prepared to squint and discuss a lot.
