Resources Page

This page includes downloadable data sets in multiple machine readable formats so that users can conduct their own analyses and the vocabularies of metadata. Eventually it will include a form through which users can submit feedback as well as additional information about existing sites that the collaborators will corroborate in advance of inclusion.

Site Dataset

Currently, the site dataset includes Norman monasteries in Sicily from the period beginning 1060 until 1194. It is available in various formats, including CSV, GeoJSON, JSON-LD, N3, RDF/XML and TTL. For the CSV and GeoJSON formats, there is a data dictionary to describe the columns.

People Dataset

Currently, the people dataset includes the Hautevilles who ruled Sicily and southern Italy as well as a wide variety of individuals who were part of their extended family network. Developed from numerous published scholarly sources, the tree is both chronologically and geographically broad in an effort to situate the Hautevilles within numerous aristocratic families from across the European continent. With that said, the genealogy is meant to be suggestive, not comprehensive. It is available for download in various formats, including GEDCOM, TTL, OWL and JSON.
