1641 Depositions Online

Description: 

The 1641 Depositions Online aims to conserve, digitise, transcribe and make the depositions from the 1641 Irish rebellion available online in a fully TEI compliant format. "The testimonies document the loss of goods, military activity, and the alleged crimes committed by the Irish insurgents, including assault, stripping, imprisonment and murder". The project began in 2007 and finished in September 2010. The Irish Manuscripts Commission will publish a hard copy of the 1641 Depositions in 12 volumes.

Digitized Deposition Manuscripts

Eneclann captured the manuscript volumes using a Colour Bookeye © (BE2-SYSCL-N2), with cold-lamps using daylight emulation. Master images were captured at 24-bit (full colour) and 600 DPI (PPI) resolution, and saved as uncompressed TIF files. Surrogate images were output at lower resolution and saved as compressed JPG files.
