A joint committee of the British Academy and Royal Historical Society was set up in 1966 to plan the production of what is intended to be the definitive edition of the entire corpus of Anglo-Saxon charters. Six volumes have been published so far, and several more are in an advanced state of preparation. When complete, the series will comprise approximately
30 volumes, providing a secure basis for our knowledge and understanding of English history, society, religion and culture from c. 670 to 1066, or for a period of roughly 400 years. Professor Simon Keynes, Secretary to the Anglo-Saxon Charters Committee, presents an overview of the project.
Professor Richard Rose FBA introduces a series of seminars, established to open up the discussion of reform.
A catalogue and cartographical analysis. The study of the urban cartography of Great Britain forms part of a long-term research programme, based at Exeter University Geography Department, to record and analyse the pre-Ordnance Survey, large-scale (i.e. highly detailed) maps of the nation. The first two parts of the programme concerned maps of rural parishes and townships made for tithe commutation and enclosure purposes [note 1]. Professor Roger Kain FBA, programme director, expands upon the current project which was adopted by the British Academy in 1998 [note 2].
