Welcome to the Whittington’s Gift Blog!


We hope to use this space to give a sneak preview of some of the exciting discoveries we make during the next three years, and to keep our readers in the loop as to the progress of the project.  We will be sharing our thoughts on little-known texts we encounter, the manuscripts we examine, and events we attend and host along the way.  We also hope to provide some guidance for PhD students and newcomers to palaeographical work, sharing our tips for beginning your research project and how to approach your first trip to an archive.

Our regular blog posts will appear from January 2021 – beginning with an overview of the theoretical framework of the project – but in the meantime, please join us on Twitter @WhitsGift.
