Henry III Fine Rolls on TWITTER

Monday, June 13th, 2011

On Tuesday 8 June 2011 the Project Team had one of their regular meetings. This was held in the 8th floor seminar room of KCL’s School of Humanities with its magnificent views over the Thames.  At the meeting Sophie Ambler (who has just been appointed to a one year fellowship at the Institute of Historical Research) set the Project up on TWITTER – Henry3FineRolls –  so please follow the tweets.

In the afternoon a workshop was held with our sister Gascon Roll Project, likewise funded by the AHRC.  The way the technical work on Fine Rolls (the earlier project) and been built on by Gascon Rolls was discussed.  One lesson agreed  was the value of funding  pilot studies  to estimate how long work would take.  The meeting closed with  swapped examples of the royal sense of humour. A fine of the Month on Henry III’s sense of humour as revealed by the Fine Rolls is forthcoming
