Illuminated manuscripts. Ce2-Cm1

An illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is illustrated by decorated initials, borders and miniatures.  

Students tried to write in uncial script using ink and feathers.
The children had to create an illuminated manuscript of a medieval poem called "l'Hiver"
by Charles d'Orleans.

They decorated the initial "H" and made a nice border around the text.
