This workshop is for beginners. You will learn to read and transcribe 16th and 17th century documents written in the Secretary Hand characteristic of the period. You will work with facsimiles of key documents for family and local historians such as wills. You will practise techniques to help you tackle any unfamiliar style of handwriting. You will learn how Secretary Hand came into being and why it was superseded. If he has time David will help you read your own difficult documents.
