Re-evaluating the Eleventh Century through Linked Events and Entities

Project description

Creating a novel way to write history

Investigating history often involves piecing together various findings and data into reconstructions of the past. While a variety of data exist, it is often not possible to come up with a single undisputed narrative about historical events due to different perspectives and context. The EU-funded RELEVEN project seeks to address this challenge by developing a novel method of creating and using digital data to record assertions about historical events. It will do this by drawing on emerging multidisciplinary data and using a wide array of available resources to trace the authority of information regarding the Christian world in the eleventh century. The goal is to inform historians while providing unique historical insights and perspectives.
