An edition of the court roll for 1320 is now live. Edited by Dr Matthew F. Stevens, it gives a complete edition and index of London's only surviving such roll for the medieval period, for July-Sept 1320. It was produced as part of the Centre for Metropolitan History ESRC-funded 'London women and the economy before and after the black death' project (2009-10).
We would like to ask your help, as a user of British History Online, to find ways in which we can improve the website and our prototype collaborative editing platform, ReScript. If you could spare a few moments to take two online tests, we would be very grateful. They are part of a programme of tests designed to tell us if the changes we've made to the sites will be an improvement.
Not only will your participation help us to improve our own sites, but the results will also contribute to the development of a national policy for digital resource usability in Higher Education by the Joint Information Systems Committee (JISC), so your input will be extremely valuable both to us and more widely.
The first set of enhancements designed to improve usability on British History Online specifically produced as part of the JISC 01/11B funding are now live.
