Signs of Literacy | |  

A community project for collaborative research into historical literacy         

Who in the late C16th, C17th and early C18th could read and write?  

How did they become literate?  

How did literacy vary between occupation and location?  

By age cohort?  

By country?  

Were there adult learners?  

How did oral facility with multiple languages map (or not) to the literacy of    reading and writing?
