I am an idiot.
Instead of catching up on my homework (losing your laptop for four days while in grad school is not recommended), I decided to peruse the digital archives of Nottingham University. Who knows? Maybe I can use it for my final project, where I talk about access to archives? I really like my program, I just don’t like reading whole chapters in dry textbooks about conducting research. I like doing research, not talking about it. I’m rambling.
Nottingham University digital archives are rad, you guys. So today’s offering is a glimpse into the manuscripts and “chap books” from Robin Hood ballads! The collection was on display in 2008, and now available for you guys to look through!
You can find them right here.
The images have descriptions next to them to help you muddle through the collection. I haven’t looked at it with too great of depth yet, but I will do. That’s a promise.
Additionally, do not reproduce these images without the express permission of the Nottingham University archives. They are copyrighted images.
Off to do homework.
