Tuesday 19 P for PALAEOGRAPHY.

Palaeography is the study of old handwriting with the aim of reading old documents. This book ‘Palaeography for Family and Local Historians.’ by Hilary Marshall, is a wonderful help. With so many different ways of writing a single letter, Hilary takes you through each letter and shows you the various ways it has been written. There are examples of various documents and their transcriptions, so you can learn to recognise different words and letter patterns.
