project: Embedding GeoCrossWalk

The Embedding GeoCrossWalk project sought to provide a deeper understanding of how references to place in structured texts can be researched and automatically extracted. The project aims were threefold. Firstly it sought to deploy the Geoparser tool, developed previously by the Language Technology Group of Edinburgh University's School of Informatics, to georeference the Stormont Papers, using Natural language Processing (NLP).

project: British printed images to 1700, a digital library

‘BRITISH PRINTED IMAGES TO 1700’ (bpi1700) is a project funded by the AHRC under their Resource Enhancement scheme.

project: Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW )

Prosopography of the Byzantine World (PBW) aims to record all surviving information about every individual mentioned in Byzantine textual sources, together with as many as possible of the individuals recorded in seal sources, in the period 1025-1261. The current online database is the first major result of PBW, a project covering the period AD 1025-1180, and represents a continuation of prosopographical work originally inspired by A.H.M. Jones in 1950, and sponsored since then by the British Academy. [read more]

Though closely connected, each volume can be used independently of the other. The Collected Works brings together for the first time in a single volume all the works currently attributed to Middleton. [read more]

project: Primary Sources on Copyright (1450-1900) (Electronic Database of Historical Materials on Copyright from Five Key Jurisdictions)

Information norms (and in particular the laws of intellectual property) are constitutive of modern societies. An understanding of the sources of these norms is critical to understanding the scope and direction of current laws. The resource relates to key historical documents in the field of copyright, from the invention of the printing press (ca1450) to the blue print of an international author rights regime devised with the Berne Convention of 1886.

project: Archaeotools: Data mining, facetted classification and E-archaeology

This two year project built upon previous ADS work to develop tools (the Common Information Environment - Archaeobrowser project) using advanced data mining and knowledge capture technologies to allow archaeologists to discover, share and analyse datasets and legacy publications that had hitherto been very difficult to integrate into digital frameworks. The project had three interrelated objectives, each represented by a distinct workpackage. [read more]
