Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, and combining The National Archives with King’s College London’s Department of History and Centre for Computing in the Humanities, The Henry III Fine Rolls Project is a unique and pioneering enterprise which democratises the rolls by making them freely available in English translation with a sophisticated electronic search engine, the first medieval source to be treated in this way.
This first three year project will publish the rolls down to 1248 in the following forms:
- An English translation of the rolls in electronic form on the KCL website, with a sophisticated search and analysis facility.
- Four printed volumes, published by Boydell & Brewer, with full indexes.
- Digital facsimile images of the rolls on the KCL website.
