John Ward's curator insight, January 12, 2014 12:10 AM

When Siân Echard, Professor of English at the University of British Columbia, sent her undergraduate students to look at images of medieval manuscripts, she thought they would come back to her with typical questions about why the manuscripts looked the way they did. Instead, the students returned with angry about why these thousand-year old pages had been defaced by the institutions that owned them!

What the students were talking about was that routine practice that was used (and in some cases still used) by libraries, archives and other institutions of putting ink stamps on most pages of the manuscript. Professor Echard was curious about the use of these markings and found they had a long history themselves.
