About EM 1060

This project and ebook is dedicated to the memory of Dr Mary Swan, who was, and remains, an inspiration.

EM1060to1220 provides the first full and accurate record of manuscripts written principally in English from c. 1060 to 1220, especially those manuscripts containing literary materials. It is intended as a properly formed and valuable scholarly contribution for all researchers interested in this critical period of English vernacular textual production.
