Anyone conducting genealogical research into Anglo-Saxon England now has a new resource launched on May 27, 02005, the Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England (PASE). PASE is a free database of all named and anonymous individuals recorded in all pre-Conquest (before 1066 AD) sources. The sources themselves are not available, but all information about the person, including contextual data from the sources, has been included in structured entries that can be searched a variety of ways, including by gender. The current database contains information dating between the late 6th century and up to 1042. Future work will extend coverage up to and beyond 1066 AD when William the Conqueror changed the course of English history.
