Does anyone want to join me in a translation project for a very old astrological manuscript, written in Old English but barely legible because the handwriting is so tight. Im not sure what wed do with it but it could be published on this site.

Im thinking that a few of us would make lighter work by taking a number of pages and giving it our best shot before transferring notes and making corrections. If anyone has a better idea they can take the lead and act as co-ordinator. If youre interested enough to know the details send me an email

This isnt a large text but it does have historical significance. A knowledge of Old English is very useful and you will need to have had some experience with traditional texts, so its not suitable for beginners.
