Historical People

The project involves the analysis of historical data that pertains to named individuals. Although most of the data subjects will no longer be living it is possible that some will be, and it is also possible that some personal data uncovered may be sensitive, or potentially sensitive, in character. The project team is aware that publication of personal information is not to be handled lightly; we have consulted with our partners the Society of Antiquaries of London (SAL) and the Royal Archaeological Institute about both GDPR and copyright issues in relation to publication of the data their archives contain. In particular, we have agreed with the SAL and RAI that we will consult with them before publication if any issues of potential sensitivity arise, and that in any cases of doubt there will be a presumption in favour of anonymity.
