An AHRC-funded project to translate and digitise documents drawn up for Henry III to record money and favours owed to him, has been officially launched. The ‘Fine Rolls’ of Henry III are written in Latin on parchment, with one for every year of his 56 year reign, some containing more than  35,000 words, and measuring up to three metres in length. With the majority of entries now on the website it went live at the end of November.
