Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England ( PASE ) is an online database maintained by the Department of History and Center for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) at King's College London and the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic at the University of Cambridge is operated. The project is being supervised by Janet L. Nelson and Simon Keynes . It was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Board from 2000 to 2004 and by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) from 2005 to 2008 .

The aim of the database is to present structured biographical and genealogical data of all named persons in the early medieval history of England. A first phase, which went online in 2005, covered the period from 597 to 1042. In a second step, published in December 2009, the database was expanded to include English landowners named in the Domesday Book and sources from the 11th and 12th centuries were recorded. In August 2010, an additional new interface created improved query options. Work is underway on further expansion. Access to the database is free and possible without registration.
