Abstract

This project examines, in detail, the English parchment industry between 1650 and 1850, locating the main centres of production, reconstructing the process of parchment manufacturing both locally and nationally, as well as assessing whether it is possible to conclude the origins of the materials used in its manufacture. The results of this project should prove vital in providing context to the results of a number of post-medieval hDNA studies on parchment as well as providing historical data on a previously unstudied industry in history.
