Context

John Leland or Leyland (13 September, c. 1503 – 18 April 1552) was an English poet and antiquary.

Leland has been described as "the father of English local history and bibliography". His Itinerary provided a unique source of observations and raw materials for many subsequent antiquaries, and introduced the county as the basic unit for studying the local history of England, an idea that has been influential ever since.

Approach

Geotagging

Welsh related gazetteers

We are using a number of digital gazetteers, installed on our Viae Regiae version of Recogito, to geotag place names, objects of interest such as bridges and mills, areas of interest such as forests, and administrative units such as cantrefs and historical counties.


Annotation

Annotations are being made to geotagged places, using our installation of Recogito on the Viae Regiae server.
