At the Court of King George II: Exploring the Royal Archives, History Department, Professor Arthur Burns

Information
 

The Arts and Humanities Faculty has created a series of ‘Opportunity Modules’  owned at faculty level and open to students from all departments aimed to create interdisciplinary spaces for innovative teaching. In one, ‘At the Court of King George’, students are taken into the heart of a major current research project, the Georgian Papers Programme, which is digitising and making available to the public the Royal Archives at Windsor from the reign of George I to George III.

The students work with the project team to create their own digital edition of a manuscript of their choice, while also benefiting from the different disciplinary perspectives of their fellow students. This year’s students produced outstanding editions of everything from the boy George III’s mathematical exercises to discussions of art theory, the music of Handel and the geography of Russia, and the results are already feeding back into the interpretations of the documents being offered to the public.

For more information about the module see here.
