This is just a quick blog to point out to you a feature of the way the manuscript encoding is unfolding over time. You may not have noticed, but one of the ways I chose where to start was based on chronology.
This note marks a temporal break between everything that has been encoded so far, and the rest to come. That is, we have now encoded all of the surviving Piers Plowman manuscripts from the fourteenth century.
I’d like, then, to pause to make a brief summary of this collection of manuscripts before we charge ahead into the fifteenth century, which will be split into similar temporal categories that are mapped out in our bar graphs from yesterday.
