Pipe Roll Society Lecture – The National Archives

25 June @ 5:00 pm6:00 pm BST

Join The National Archives for ‘Pipe rolls – publishing the ‘most splendid’ records’. 

In 1711, the pipe rolls were described as the ‘most splendid’ records in the royal archives, next to Domesday Book. Some examples from a single roll, from 1259, show the use of the pipe rolls for political, economic, family and local history. Unfortunately, pipe rolls are not easy to use. The originals are cumbersome and hard to navigate.

Founded in 1883 at the Public Record Office, the Pipe Roll Society publishes the Pipe Rolls and associated records of medieval English government, and of other manuscripts of national importance prior to the year 1350.

This year’s lecture will be delivered by Richard Cassidy. Richard has a PhD in medieval history from King’s College London. His thesis was an edition of the 1259 pipe roll, which is to be published by the Pipe Roll Society. He has published several articles on thirteenth-century finance and administration, and a short book, Approaching Pipe Rolls, which is a guide to reading and understanding pipe rolls.
