The Historical Gazetteer of England's Place-Names

The Historical Gazetteer of England's Place-Names’ is a key piece of digital infrastructure for use in the humanities, arts, and social sciences. Its aim is to associate disparate content through place - everything happens somewhere, after all - and therefore to facilitate accurate searches across resources. Gazetteers of contemporary place-names have been available for some time, but the Historical Gazetteer’s historical place-name forms add chronological depth to the mix.

Authorial London

The Authorial London project is compiling and mapping references to London places found in the works and biographies of writers who have lived there.  You can explore and analyze these curated passages from literary, geographical, and biographical perspectives, on dimensions of genre, form, period, social standing, and neighborhood. The site's underlying software platform, "Authorial {X}," will be made available soon, permitting creation of similar sites for other locales.
