Milton Abbey Priory Archive

This roll of parchment contains 20 documents written in a very clear Medieval Latin.

Considering it was written over 600 years ago it is in remarkable condition.

Our history group has bought a digital copy which can be studied in detail.

Only one of the documents has so far been translated – The Boundaries of Milton Abbey Manor 1384. So if there is anyone who would like to have a go, please get in touch. We would be very grateful indeed for help.

The original document is in the Dorset History Centre catalogue D-357 with details of the various documents on the roll.
