Stokes, English Vernacular Script, ca 990–ca 1035, Vol. 2 (PhD Thesis, University of Cambridge, 2006)

These lines are now almost entirely illegible. The scribe seems to have used a thin pen with no shading, and to have written a fairly large hand with long ascenders and descenders. Ascenders seem to have had wedges, descenders were straight, and minims show approach-strokes. A rounded but essentially teardrop-shaped a is visible, as is bilinear d and perhaps round c and e. A tall-e ligature is found before n. The top of g seems to have been flat, the mid-section angular, and the tail hooked up at the tip. Low s is visible. The back of ð may have been long and angled at about 60°–70°. Straight-limbed dotted y was used, the tail hooked right and the right branch perhaps hooked left. The top of 7 is long.
