A new version of PASE containing a substantial quantity of new data collected during the PASE 2 research project was published online using the existing web interface on 23 December 2009. This material was published using a new web interface on 18 August 2010.
The PASE 2 research project has resulted in the following enhancements to PASE:
The Leverhulme Trust has recently awarded a large research project grant to King’s College, London, to be led by Dr Stephen Baxter, Reader in Medieval History at King’s. The grant, of just over £250,000, will enable King’s to employ Dr Chris Lewis, one of the world’s leading authorities on eleventh-century England, and to appoint a new post-doctoral research fellow, for the duration of a two-year project. The project will be implemented and published online by the Centre for Computing in Humanities (CCH) at King’s.
The project is ‘Profile of a Doomed Elite: The Structure of English Landed Society in 1066’. It will build on the PASE Database and PASE Domesday to survey the whole of English landed society on the eve of the Norman Conquest in 1066, identifying landowners at all levels of society from the king and earls down to the parish gentry and even some prosperous peasants.
