The auncial and allauncl packages provide Metafont fonts based on the Artificial Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 6th and 10th century AD. The font consists of minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided. Note that the font is available separately in Adobe Type 1 format, as the artificial uncial ‘new’ package. This is one of a set of manuscript fonts. Access to the docmfp package is desirable but not essential.
