Vnto thasembled wrytters of wryts, al due comendaciune from Arianrhod o Gymru, Argywlddes, Compagnon of the Pannash.
Y be as bee euident a Welchwomman wt sum curieuse ressemblaunce to a Scots pyrate long agoo in the Royaulme of thEst.
Scripsi this past score yeres or more, though duryng some ten yeres Y was dormaunte.
To the assembled scribes of Drachenwald, greetings and all due commendation from Lady Arianrhod from Wales, companion of the Panache.
I am, as is fairly patently evident a Welshwoman (with a curious resemblance to a Scots pirate of the East in years past).
I have scribed for the past twenty years or so, though I gafiated for about a decade.
Mundanely, I have a PhD in Early Modern English, good access to the BL, and specialise in words and wordings. My profile pic is of the best instance I've done of Egerton 1146, which I want a full facsimile of. One day I'll go to the BL and ask much they charge for a scan of various pages. And then faint. I've attached a couple of other Egerton 1146 projects.
OK, I am also a Luddite. How do I get this to intersperse the pix with my text? It won't let me drag them. The cursor was where I wanted them when I uploaded them.
