Charters of Christ Church Canterbury, Hardback (September 2013)
This edition collects all the surviving records and title-deeds from the archbishopric and cathedral church of Canterbury from its foundation in 597 to 1066. They are a vital source for English political, ecclesiastical and socio-economic history and for the development of the landscape and the English language in that same period.
Charters of Glastonbury Abbey, Hardback (September 2012)

Charters of Peterborough Abbey, Hardback (May 2009)
