ASChart: Anglo-Saxon Charters

Research output: Non-textual formData set/Database


ASChart was a pilot project funded by the British Academy in 2005. The on-line publication is based around XML mark-up of charters written in Anglo-Saxon England before A.D. 900, though it is hoped that eventually the scope of the project can be extended to the full corpus. ASChart will ultimately allow users quick and easy access to a wealth of web-based infomation about Anglo-Saxon charters and history. The project aims to enhance a series of extant and developing projects concerned, wholly or partly, with Anglo-Saxon charters, including: the AHRC-funded Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England (PASE), based jointly at King's College London (KCL) and Cambridge; the AHRC-funded Anglo-Saxon charter-boundaries project (Langscape), based at KCL and Oxford; the AHRC-funded Revised Electronic Sawyer, based at Cambridge. The Centre for Computing in the Humanities (CCH) at KCL is involved in all of these projects. ASChart's director was Prof. Janet L. Nelson and its named researcher Alex Burghart (both History, KCL). Technical research and development for the online publication was carried out by Arianna Ciula, Juan Garces, Paul Spence, and Zaneta Au at CCH.
