The Unit is dedicated to the study and promotion, and, where necessary, development, of the disciplines and methods of medieval prosopography. The Unit was established at Linacre College, Oxford, with view of creating a comprehensive review of the development of prosopography to date and a range of teaching programmes for graduates. We aim to encourage the development of computer-based projects directly focused upon primary sources. We aim also to publish monographs and collections of essays using prosopography at affordable prices, as well as short articles on current projects.


Please note: If your interest is in tracing your family history, you should apply to the Society of Genealogists or the Foundation for Medieval Genealogy for expert assistance. We do not enter into correspondence about family history questions.
