What does ASChart do?
ASChart can be used to view indexes of different types of information found in Anglo-Saxon charters or to link to other websites concerned with particular aspects of Anglo-Saxon history. You can view and access this data in two different ways:
- by viewing a full interactive text of any one of the charters (accessible through the CHARTERS index) which contain links to diplomatic indexes or other websites;
- by viewing the diplomatic indexes which link to full texts.
What diplomatic indexes are provided?
Users will find indexes on the following types of charter diplomatic:
- Dating clauses (organised by type)
- Disposative words
- Places of Promulgation
When viewing an index of – for example – invocations, clicking on an invocation will reveal all similar examples found in charters before A.D. 900. Clicking on a particular case from this list will take you to a full text of the charter.
What other projects are linked and how?
When viewing the full text of a charter, you can:
- click on a NAME within it and be taken to the PASE entry for that individual;
- click on a BOUNDARY CLAUSE to be linked to the relevant section of the Langscape charter bounds project;
- use the links available at the top of the full text charter pages to see information on the charter within the Revised Electronic Sawyer or within PASE .
At the time of web publication, the electronic format of the Durham Liber Vitae was still to be decided. ASChart will link to the project as soon as it is possible.
