People of Medieval Scotland project 1093 - 1371

The Project

People of Medieval Scotland (PoMS) project is a database of all known people of Scotland between 1093 and 1314 mentioned in over 8600 contemporary legal documents. It has also recently been extended to 1371 to include all those lands, peoples and relationships mentioned in royal charters between 1314 and 1371. The People of Medieval Scotland website is an outcome of three projects: The Paradox of Medieval Scotland (2007-2010); The Breaking of Britain (2010-2013); and The Community of the Realm in Scotland (2017-2020), all funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), and the Transformation of Gaelic Scotland in the Twelfth and Thirteenth Centuries (2013-2016), funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
