The project will culminate in the creation of an app

Exeter Manuscripts Project

Dr Emma Cayley is currently working on a project in collaboration with a creative economy partner, Antenna International, to create a smart device App. Our App will introduce school age pupils and other audiences to the fascinating world of medieval manuscripts. An initial stage will create a prototype based around Exeter Cathedral’s famous Exeter Book (c970) which contains the world’s largest collection of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) poetry, and features the Exeter Riddles: a collection of ninety-six literary enigmas. A later version will include other South West medieval manuscripts, including the Syon Abbey manuscripts currently held in the University of Exeter’s Special Collections department.
