Centre for Digital Excellence Captures Chaucer on Camera!

 new-image.jpgThe Codex (Centre for Digital Excellence) project at the University of Manchester recently visited National Trust Petworth House in Sussex to digitise a medieval Chaucer manuscript.

The project aims to establish partnerships with museums, libraries and archive repositories throughout the region, and beyond, to develop and test collaborative models for digitisation.

This was the projects first visit to a collection to photograph and digitise a collection, and also gave the team at Petworth House a chance to ask the team questions and watch them work.

The event was captured by the BBC and includes an interesting piece of film with the curator at Petworth House.
