An academic research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and combining the Universities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and King's College London.

POMS has investigated how a recognisably modern Scottish identity was formed during the period 1093-1286. Drawing on over 6000 contemporary charters, we constructed a unique database which will provide biographical information about all known people in Scotland between 1093 and 1286.

A companion website and faceted search interface allows to search and browse the data in multiple ways.
