I have acquired digital Hi-Rez images of an unpublished early 1400s bishop's register, consisting of just 12 leaves. My palaeographic skills are quite dire, so I am looking for a few volunteers to each translate a leaf of the register, so I can start work on the English translation (second part of the project), then publish the register.
I can't offer any monetary recompense, but can offer my sincere thanks for any help, and of course, full attribution in the final published register.
Anyone up for this?
