SGSAH International Summer School 2021


This session explores the Aberdeen Registers Online: 1398-1511 (ARO): from the underlying burgh records which survive from the middle ages, and the context of the languages within them (Latin and Middle Scots), to the creation of the ARO as a digital resource in the language of XML. It presents the digital humanities work which is currently underway in the course of the FLAG project, investigating the ARO alongside a comparable digital resource from medieval Augsburg. It explores an exciting set of creative responses to the themes and language in the ARO, in the form of contemporary song-writing and musical performance.
