Notebook 5. Northern England and Scotland
The BSR has initiated this Digital Humanities Research Project in collaboration with Prof. Rosemary Sweet and Dr. Richard Ansell, both from the University of Leicester, selecting William Gell’s sketchbook of landscapes and monuments in northern England and Scotland as a pilot project.
The drawings have been individually catalogued and a digital version of the sketchbook can be browsed.
A link has been created where relevant, thanks to the research by Alexander Deans, University of Glasgow, to Canmore, National Record of the Historic Environment, for archaeological sites, buildings and monuments across Scotland.
