First page of the Chronicon Petroburgense, in the manuscript book Liber Niger from Peterborough Abbey

The Chronicon Petroburgense, or Peterborough Chronicle, is a 13th-century chronicle written in Medieval Latin at Peterborough Abbey, England, covering events from 1122 to 1294.[1] It was probably written by William of Woodford, a sacrist and later abbot of Peterborough (1296–1299).[1] It survives as part of a Peterborough cartulary known as the "Liber Niger", or "Black Book", where it appears on folios 75–80 and 85–136.[2][Fn 1] The chronicle was edited by Thomas Stapleton and published by the Camden Society in 1849, with an appendix containing a transcription of the first 20 folios of the Liber Niger.[5] In his introduction to Stapleton's edition, John Bruce wrote that the Chronicon contained "valuable contributions to legal and constitutional history [that were] universally recognised".[6]

While Martin groups her descriptions of cartularies and registers – "[collections of] incoming and outgoing correspondence and other administrative material [produced] during the incumbency of individual abbots" – separately, she describes the Liber Niger first in her section for cartularies.[3] The Liber Niger is described as a "chartulary" in the relevant Victoria County History volume.[4]
