The ‘People of Medieval Scotland’ is a database of the 21,000+ people mentioned in the 8500+ documents from Scotland that survive between 1093 and 1314. It has been designed to cater for beginners as well as experts. Learners can explore and discover this pivotal period of Scotland’s past on their own terms. Experts can conduct research in days and hours that would once have taken them months. The database also offers learners and experts a new experience of engaging with the past, allowing thousands of individuals to take centre stage, and hundreds of places. It is left to the user to decide what is interesting and important.

Special features include:

·         A ‘lab’ space for quick and thought-provoking ways to explore the database

·         Gaelic names are identified in their medieval and modern forms

·         A multi-faceted search facility

·         For experts: special attention to the form of documents

 The database is the outcome of two projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council: the ‘Paradox of Medieval Scotland, 1093-1286: Social Relationships and Identities before the Wars of Independence’ (www.poms.ac.uk) and the ‘Breaking of Britain: Cross-border Society and Scottish Independence 1216-1314’ (www.breakingofbritain.ac.uk), a collaboration between the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Lancaster, and King’s College, London
