Date VIII¹ (701 - 750)
Origin and Provenance

Written in England, apparently in a Northumbrian centre, and possibly at Lindisfarne to judge by contents. At the end of the eighth century the manuscript was at Fulda where the Lindisfarne Annals were copied and a continuation of the paschal tables made (for this and later history, see CLA 9.1234).

Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat compressed English uncial of the unmistakable Northumbrian type: the strokes of many letters (A, B, F, K, M) are not joined; the cross-stroke of N is low and almost horizontal. The notes referring to Northumbria are by the first hand. Entries of an historical character, saec. XI–XII, fill the lower and lateral margins.
