Note on the Sources
The materials for the revised Fasti are drawn from diverse sources, the nature of which is discussed in the Introduction to the first volume of the present series. (fn. 1) Citations of sources are made as full as possible to facilitate reference, and a list of abbreviated references to printed materials will be found below. (fn. 2) Some explanatory comments on three important classes of documents are appropriate here.
Among the sources of the present Fasti, monastic annals are of great value. Annals from many monastic houses are available in printed editions, notably in Annales Monastici (fn. 3) and in Ungedruckte Anglo-Normannische Geschichtsquellen. (fn. 4) Some other annals are cited from manuscripts, of which three are abbreviated as follows:
Charters form another important class of documents. Numerous original charters and cartularies have been consulted, and they are normally cited in full. The series of charters, cartularies and registers in the archives of the Deans and Chapters of Canterbury, Durham, Ely and Norwich have been of particular value to the present work. They are cited by place of deposit and class of record, e.g. Canterbury, Cart[ae] Ant[iquae], Durham, Loc[elli], Ely, ch[arter], Norwich, Reg[istrum] etc.
