Learn the Basics of Palaeography

The Institute for Historical Research, which is associated with the University of London, is offering a free online course in Palaeography. (HT: PhiloBiblos)

Medievalists have always found it difficult to interact with primary sources from their period of study due to a lack of training in palaeography (and manuscript studies), that is to say, the reading and understanding of ancient documents. This course provides scholars and the general public interested in medieval books and documents with online training on the diverse areas found within palaeography. Topics covered include general palaeography, the history of medieval scripts, diplomatic, codicology and illumination.

Register for this free course here. The Institute offers a number of other courses, some of them for free.

    MM, i went to the link, but found little information beyond a summary of the course. How long is it, and can one take it at his own pace, or is it in a webinar format, or what? Any further info?
