Poppadum books

Posted on

The Great Parchment Book is not the only “poppadom book”. We have other burnt and heat-affected parchment volumes at London Metropolitan Archives. Crisp as a poppadum looks at examples of burnt manuscripts in the British Library collections. It is hoped that the ground-breaking work on conserving and digitally reconstructing the Great Parchment Book will have an impact on the accessibility of other burnt parchment items.
