John Coffin Memorial Lecture in Palaeography
Although focussing on content rather later than Exon Domesday, the John Coffin Memorial Lecture in Palaeography may well be of interest. It is always a very worthwhile lecture, and this year promises to be no exception. Full details are available on the Institute of English Studies website, including information on how to register, and a copy of the essential details is below. I wil certainly be attending, and I hope to see you there.

'Let me slip into something less comfortable': Gothic Textualis by Accident and by Design
This lecture concerns the supposed 'decadence' of late gothic textualis, especially the more formal grades, whether it entailed effort or conscious design, and instances when individuals misunderstood it or slipped.
Attendance free. Part of the Medieval Manuscripts Seminar Series.
