Eleventh-Century Anglo-Saxon Manuscript Facsimiles Online

The following table gives all publicly accessible images of manuscripts I have found where the manuscripts are included in Helmut Gneuss, Handlist of Anglo-Saxon Manuscripts... (Tempe, Ariz.: Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, 2001). Dates given are reproduced directly from this book. This list is intended to be complete at least for s. xi, although I'm sure it's not, and I'm sure many of these links will break at various times in the future. Please send me additions/corrections at pas53[at]cam[dot]ac[dot]uk. However, please DON'T mail me about the 'Ductus' links. I know they don't work; they refer to Bernard Muir's palaeography CD, and are there purely for my own convenience. Sorry. If it's any consolation, there is now a demo of the CD online.

'Gneuss No.' refers to H. Gneuss, op. cit. 'Ker No.' refers to N. R. Ker, Catalogue of Manuscripts Containing Anglo-Saxon (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1957).
