The auncial-new bundle provides packages and fonts for a script based on the Artificial Uncial manuscript book-hand used between the 6th & 10th century AD. The script consists of minuscules and digits, with some appropriate period punctuation marks. Both normal and bold versions are provided, and the font is distributed in Adobe Type 1 format. This is an experimental new version of auncial, which is one of a series of bookhand fonts. The font follows the B1 encoding developed for bookhands. Access to this is essential. The encoding mainly follows the regular T1 encoding.
