Teachable Features

Teachable Features is an illustrated series exploring manuscripts with interesting or unusual features as a pedagogical resource. We plan to to develop it into a digital facility which can be accessed without geographical restrictions. Teachable Features will be an irregular series, and depends on you! If, in the course of your research, you encounter a manuscript which could be used in the demonstration of particular palaeographical or codicological features, please get in touch .
