Scribal Tools: The Penner & Inkhorn

Visit Website
Description How did itinerant scribes of the Middle Ages and Renaissance carry their pens and ink supply with them? These scribes often carried their pens (i.e., quills), pen knife, and ink bottles by hanging them from their belts. The box that holds the pens and knife is called a penner, and the bottle of ink is the inkhorn. When was it used, how was it used, what was it made of, what did it look like, and what was inside the penner?
