Research project: The Soldier in later Medieval England: An exciting AHRC research project - Dormant

Currently Active:

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) awarded a Research Grant worth just under £500,000 to Dr Adrian Bell of the ICMA Centre and Professor Anne Curry of the University of Southampton to challenge assumptions about the emergence of professional soldiery between 1369 and 1453

This project ran from 1/10/2006 - 30/9/2009.  We have now updated all of the soldier data collected during this period and it is online and ready to search.  We really hope that you enjoy using the database and please email us to tell us your findings.  This website and the database is now complete and will be maintained for the longterm.  We may be adding or updating with new findings from time to time.  We have added a new section to describe particular sources and to help you with your research.  This is accessed via the section - Guidance notes.

The project had an innovative methodological approach and has produced an on-line searchable resource for public use of immense value and interest to genealogists as well as social, political and military historians. The whole team continues to work on a jointly authored book, conference papers, and articles.

The project database is now available for searching .
