  1. There is also a Latin palaeography summer class at Durham University in the UK.

    According to the Durham website (http://www.dur.ac.uk/cmrs/palaeography/), the summer course is “an intensive training in Palaeography, together with revision of Latin language skills. The two-week course will be devoted to the history of scripts from Antiquity to the Renaissance. The aim of the course is to help students develop their skills in reading and transcribing medieval manuscripts and other documents.”
