Primary Source Collections and Guides: England

The most extensive single collection of primary resources from Medieval England is Rerum Britannicarum Medii Aevi Scriptores, also know as the 'rolls' series, which consists primarily of chronicles, letters, treaties and charters. It is supplemented by modern series of critical editions such as the Oxford Medieval Texts series. However, many English primary sources are available through periodical publications of public and private scholarly organizations such as the Camden Society, Royal Historical Society and Pipe Roll Society. These publications are indexed in the Mullins Text and Calendars guides. Supplementing these sources are a number of published compilations available at Penn and special collections that are available on microform through the Center for Research Libraries.
