It’s great to be working on the #digitisation of 16th-century English manuscripts. Today Add MS 48002 is on the imaging stand.

We'll soon be updating its catalogue record with a link to all the digitised images online: #WatchThisSpace #TwitterTakeover

And can I also just give a huge shoutout to the #PolonskyPre1200 Project (@GallicaBnF /@BLMedieval ) and @IRHT_CNRS , because I couldn't have done all of the research and seen all of the manuscripts in person that I needed to in order to complete this research.
