Map of Early Modern London

Description: 

Map of Early Modern London (MoEML) is a digital resources "comprised of four distinct, interoperable projects: a digital Map and gazetteer based on the 1560s Agas woodcut map of London; an Encyclopedia of London people, places, topics, and terms; a Library of marked-up texts rich in London toponyms; and a versioned edition of John Stow’s Survey of London". These four project draw information from five MoEML-authored databases: a Personography of early modern Londoners, both historical and literary; an Orgography of organizations (e.g., livery companies and other corporations); a Bibliography of primary and secondary sources; and a Glossary of terms relevant to early modern London. The project works entirely in TEI-XML and is committed to openly sharing their encoding work as a method of enriching London studies and digital humanities practices.
