Script Commentary

Script is clumsy though rather regular Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule, written apparently by a scribe insufficiently trained in Anglo-Saxon calligraphy: d and n prevail, occurring rarely and N only at the beginning of sentences; R and r, S and ; is conspicuously gauche; e in ligatures is angular. A correction on fol. 1v in pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule. Sixteenth-century notes of legal content on fol. 1v.
