Join our borough archivist to learn how to decipher the historical texts of the Conisbrough Court Rolls. Topics covered include; 1) Abbreviations, spelling, punctuation. 2) Modern handwriting - a look at three or four examples of the handwriting found in the record. 3) Use of Language in the 1650s. The period of the Commonwealth, 1649-1660, saw English in use as the language of official record for the first time. The handwriting and language used in the rolls differ from those found in the rolls from 1733 onward and may present rather more in the way of difficulty. 4) The Latin records- A tantalising view of something from the later 14th century.
