Cíle předmětu
The aim of the course is to familiarize students with the basic terminology in various auxiliary sciences of history and archival science in the English language, which will facilitate the transition to active use of foreign-language literature and online sources. In addition to the basic concepts, there will also be selective probes in rare books and manuscripts, incl. materials and scribal practices (palaeography). The course aims to encourage students to use a consistent terminology system when describing and analysing historical sources.

They will be able to work independently with foreign-language sources as well as search useful links and dictionaries online. The course will also be useful for outgoing students for work placement abroad held in English.
