We were delighted to welcome to Transcribe Bentham this week Anna-Maria Sichani, who is studying for the MA in Digital Humanities here at UCL. Anna-Maria is here for the next few weeks on a placement and will be helping to run the project during that time.

Thank you, as ever, to all those who have given their time and effort to Transcribe Bentham during the last week. It remains, as ever, greatly appreciated.
