The following message came in on the Typo list and, with the sender's
permission, I thought I'd forward it to this list, as the site might be of
some additional interest to people here.

>5. The Life of Edward the Confessor--CUL
>Cambridge University library has recently made available online "the only
>copy of a thirteenth-century Anglo-Norman, illuminated Life of St. Edward
>the Confessor." The manuscript, written in the 1230s or 40s and executed in
>the 1250s or 60s, is well-preserved, and its new availability should be a
>boon for medievalists. Cambridge's site allows users to page through all 37
>folios, beginning with the first, or to obtain descriptions of each folio
>and view them selectively. Users can zoom in on all or part of a page or
>view pages side-by-side. The site also includes a brief introduction to the
>manuscript and suggestions for further reading. [TK]
