Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP)

Peripherical Mountains in the Medieval World
The project focuses on the analysis of the depiction of space in medieval written sources, of the interaction between built and natural environment, of appropriation of space and the emergence of new political, religious and economic structures of power. DPP compares four regions of the medieval world: the Eastern Alps (6th-12th cent.), the Morava-March Region (6th-11th cent.), the historical region of Macedonia (12th-14th cent.) and historical Southern Armenia (Vaspurakan, 5th-11th cent.). Historical and archaeological data will be digitised, combined and geo-referenced with the help of tools deriving from Digital Humanities (data basis – using the OpenAtlas database, geo-visualisation and spatial analysis, quantitative and correspondence analysis).
Data and results will be presented online as open access and linked to other data repositories.
