Devon Deciphered


As many people will know, the Friends of Devon’s Archives have recently published a book called Devon Deciphered, by John Booker, a retired archivist and palaeography lecturer who has volunteered at the Devon Heritage Centre since 2011 and regularly teaches palaeography here.

Devon Deciphered approaches the art of reading old handwriting from a specifically Devonian perspective, using documents created and held in the county.

Between 14:00 and 16:00 on Monday 4th December at the Devon Heritage Centre, John Booker will be talking about the process of writing the book, with reference to many of the documents, which will be on display.

Please note the change of date of this event to 4th December 2017
