          Researching the origin of medieval manuscripts

          Background

          •        Medieval manuscripts - handwritten books produced between the fifth and fifteenth centuries
          •        Origin of many manuscripts unknown until 2009; scientists started using DNA testing

          Animal hides - two types

          Parchment

          Sheep skin: white in colour and 31

          Greasy - writing can’t be erased so often used for 32

          Vellum

          Calf skin: most popular for prestigious work because you can get 33  lettering.

          •        Treated in barrels of lime - where this was not available, skins were  34  (removed hair -> more flexible)
          •        Stretched tight on a frame
          •        Scraped to create same 35
          •        Vellum was 36

          Uses of new data

          Gives information on individual books

          Shows the 39  of the book industry
