Paleography Links


These are some links that John Chandler, our paleography guest expert, thought we might find interesting:

Newly found Syriac manuscript leads to some disputes over its age:

DNA testing to help identify manuscript production:

Also of interest is the National Library of Scotland?s digitization project.
Here are two of their treasures:

The Auchinleck Manuscript, a wide-ranging collection of Middle English texts:

And the Murthly book of hours:
http://www.nls.uk/murthlyhours/index.html

NLS is also digitizing their early printed books, which you can find pretty
easily from their site (www.nls.uk). I?ve looked at a couple of them on the
site, and thought it was an effective way to present the texts.

Is there anyone here interested in knowing about ancient writing? Then the links will help you to get some information about it. These Paleography Mobile Phone Signal Booster Links helped me to know a little about ancient writing systems and it was so interesting to know about it.
