Editorial Guidelines

The editorial guidelines were drawn up during the first months of the project by Dr Paul Booth with the assistance of Dr Simon Harris, and have gone through a series of recensions during the course of the project as the growing experience of the editors revealed shortcomings, oversights and novel problems that required adjustments to be made to the original guidelines.

The following pages and appendices set out the principles upon which the Gascon Rolls have been edited, and to which the editors have endeavored to adhere over the growing corpus of material upon which they have worked. They owe a considerable debt to the work of numerous editors that have gone before, and to whose work frequent reference is made within the guidelines.
