Dr Gavin Robinson

Last updated: 9 September 2019. Several hundred petitions that I transcribed for The Power of Petitioning project have now been published at British History Online.

I am an independent historian and professional palaeographer. I do freelance manuscript transcription and data cleaning (I used to run Different Hand Ltd but am now working as a sole trader under my own name). You can now find more details of my manuscript transcription and data processing services and general business information. If you have any enquiries about this work, you can contact me below. You can get a free quote to help with project planning and funding bids.

I am also available for employment and casual work where contracting out isn't possible (for example, if you need right of control) but I can't mix employment and self-employment for the same institution.

My own research is on horses and cavalry in the English Civil War. I am also interested in crowdsourcing and Linked Open Data.
