Further funding for Pelagios

An international collaboration dedicated to identifying and recording geographical references in historical documents is launched 23 February 2016 at the Fitzwilliam Museum, University of Cambridge.

The Pelagios Commons initiative, led by Lancaster University, The Open University, AIT Austrian Institute of Technology, and the Institute of Catalans Studies, will involve over a hundred partners and significantly enhance access to and use of invaluable online historical resources.

The work is funded by US-based Andrew W. Mellon Foundation with two grants totalling $1,264,000.
