Dr David Woodman

Dr David Woodman is Fellow of Robinson College, Cambridge.

His research fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub is in collaboration with the School of Histories and Humanities.

His research is focused on John of Worcester’s Chronicle, a text written at Worcester c. 1140 and which survives in five principal manuscripts, one of which is preserved in TCD as number 502. TCD also houses a related text, known as the Chronicula, number 503 in its collection and which is fascinating as a kind of abbreviated chronicle based on the main text, but which has unique additions.

Although the Chronicle has been edited in two modern volumes, it has never received sustained analysis and Dr Woodman’s research is devoted to writing a monograph on the Chronicle which will complement and complete the existing edited text.
