Over 200 researchers have worked on the project, and the dictionary is based entirely on original and systematic research of a massive array of British Latin material, including poetry, sermons, chronicles, scientific texts, legal documents, state records, accounts and letters. The dictionary covers the vocabulary of the Latin language used in Britain and by Britons between AD 540 and 1600. It spans 15 volumes, the first of which came out in 1975. The project’s history will be narrated in a display in the Bodleian Library, Oxford until 16 February 2014.
