Inventory of jewels and other objects belonging to Edward I, in roll format, 1301

Identifier: MS 8


This is 1301 roll from England includes a detailed inventory of the jewels and other precious objects in the possession of King Edward I of England. The locations of the objects are described, as well as the chests and boxes in which they are kept and items which are gifts include the donor's name. The headings for the different sections are written in a two-line script enclosed in a frame. The roll is composed of two membranes stitched together. The parchment is worn and although the headings are still legible, the text is very faint and difficult to read in the first two sections.
