The Summer School, which took place from 5th – 17th August, saw over 30 participants from all around the world congregate in Cambridge to expand their knowledge in reading early-modern archival materials in their original format. As in previous years participants were joined by master calligrapher Yukiko Ayres who focussed on 女筆 (nyohitsu) “The woman’s brush”.
