Trades and crafts in 14th century Lancs

Medieval Latin

The Ranulf  Higden Society transcribes and translates medieval Latin documents associated with Lancashire, Cheshire, Staffordshire and Derbyshire.  

Some people for their own purposes need to read and understand medieval records written in Latin or Anglo-Norman but do not have the benefit of the kind of support normally provided by postgraduate courses in universities.  The Society was formed to provide a means by which they might receive continuing instruction in various relevant fields and encourage and support one another.  

New members welcome
