In this full-day course, learn to read and transcribe 16th and 17th century documents written in the Secretary Hand characteristic of the period.
David Smith gives you the opportunity to:
- Work with facsimiles of key documents for family and local historians, such as wills;
- Practise techniques to help you tackle any unfamiliar style of handwriting;
- Learn how Secretary Hand came into being and why it was superseded.
If there is time, David offers to help you read your own difficult documents.
Please note: You should have a basic understanding of palaeography or have taken Davdi's beginners course before booking. This is an intensive full-day course and places are limited.
