  • Overall: 47% of the 7,464 manuscripts uploaded to the website have been transcribed thus far.

Boxes 72 and 116 were again the most heavily transcribed, while number of others are heading for completion.

As mentioned in last week’s update, Dr Tim Causer gave presentations on Transcribe Bentham at conferences in London and Paris during the week. The session at Paris was recorded, and when the video is made available, we will let you know; those present were very impressed by the level of effort made by TB volunteers over the last two years.

Thank you, as ever, to all those who have given their time and effort to the project during the past week. It remains hugely appreciated.
