Stokes, English Vernacular Script, ca 990–ca 1035, Vol. 2 (PhD Thesis, University of Cambridge, 2006)
These scribbles were written with a thin pen and long ascenders with prominent wedges. The descender of r is straight, the tops of u have wedges, and the bottoms of n have horizontal feet. Flat-topped a was used, the left side of which is quite curved. Horned e is found, the tongue straight, long, and rising slightly. The h of the first scribble was written with almost no pen-lift, and the shoulder of the n in that scribble is very thin, long, and angular, as if the scribe were distracted mid-stroke.
