Abstract

This is a database of all known people of Scotland between 1093 and 1314 mentioned in over 8600 contemporary documents. The database contains all information that can be assembled about every individual involved in actions in Scotland or relating to Scotland in documents written between the death of Malcolm III on 13 November 1093 and Robert I’s parliament at Cambuskenneth on 6 November 1314.

The database is not simply a list of everyone who is ever mentioned. It is designed to reflect the interactions and relationships between people as this is represented in the documents.

The database draws on over 8600 documents from this period that are directed by one or more individuals to others (either by name or in general terms). This allows the database to be structured according to the formal aspects of these documents, giving it the potential to be used not only a source of information, but also as a means of investigating the ways in which social relationships were mediated by the documents themselves. This additional dimension is not, however, given in the case of documents which pertain to English administration in Scotland (dated after 10 June 1291 when Edward I was recognised as overlord of Scotland).
