Medieval Soldier Database On Line

Medieval soldier database goes online

Tuesday July 21, 2009
The Soldier in Later Medieval England, a research project by Professor Anne Curry of the University of Southampton and Dr. Adrian Bell of the University of Reading, has produced an online database of soldiers that fought for England against the French from 1369 to 1453. The database, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, is free to use and will surely prove invaluable for scholars of military history, economic history, and English and French history, as well as genealogists and anyone curious about the Hundred Years War.

Find out more about the project in articles at BBC News, Media Newswire, the Mirror, or the Telegraph. And, of course, be sure to visit the Soldier in later Medieval England website, where you can browse "Soldier Profiles" of interesting individuals from the database as well as search the database yourself. The site is clean and fast, but be prepared to use your Back Button after a search if you want to explore the site further.

Will you search the database? Who will you look for?
