EngLaId - English Landscapes & Identities

Analysing change in the English landscape

The EngLaId (‘English Landscape and Identities’) project analyses change and continuity in the English landscape from the middle Bronze Age (c. 1500 BC) to the Domesday survey (c. 1086 AD).

Funded by the European Research Council (ERC) at the University Oxford, and working in close partnership with English Heritage, the British Museum, the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS) and the Archaeological Data Service (ADS), the project combines a mass of existing artefactual and mapping data from – amongst others – English Heritage’s National
 Mapping Programme, the PAS, the ADS and county HERs (Historic Environment Records).

Oxford e-Research Centre is involved in work to combine data from many disparate sources and to expose the data to the Semantic Web.
