The Castleton Project

castleton-signature

The Castleton manuscript is the focus of the 9 November 2016 transcribathon. The event will take place at the Universities of Akron, Essex, Texas (Arlington) and Saskatchewan, Pacific Lutheran University, the Folger Shakespeare Library, the Huntington Library, the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science and elsewhere on planet earth!

Lady Grace Castleton’s recipe book contains directions for making everything from medicine to desserts to wine. At the end of the day, we hope to have completed a full keying of Folger Manuscript V.a.600. For more information about participating in this event, click here.
