I have just spoken to a very helpful gentleman at the British Library who explained the procedure for accessing the original document – it doesn’t look as though that is a possibility as it is such a rare and delicate part of the Cotton Collection – but they do have copies on CD (hopefully better quality than the one below) that I would be able to access after registering as a user. I’m up for that and have to email the manuscript section with details to make life easier…. While at the BL I may also do a bit more digging on the route, Segeric and more recent adventures that have followed the route. This is fun!
What do you think?
