To search the development version of the digital edition of the Chamber Books, please click here (directs to an external site). Users can also browse by manuscript and folio/page here (directs to an external site).
Both the search functionality and the visualisation of the Chamber Books on screen are still under development and work will be ongoing until the autumn of 2019. There is some advice and tips on searching available on the search page.
All the Payment books, Receipt books and the Queen’s book are now available to search.
Users have the option to search and to view each page/folio either in the original middle English/Latin or in a modernised English version. The modernised version has been created through automated processes by Katherine Rogers at Sheffield Humanities Research Institute, using dictionaries, syntax and orthography rules and drawing on existing spelling regularisation tools, with little editorial amendment. Work is still ongoing on this function.
