The database for the Bailey project has been created on csmgenr2. We're now ready to start creating tables. Over the past couple of months, I have been working with Simon Devereau on the kinds of queries the db needs to support and anomolous fields and records and with Clifton on the table design.
A number of earlier posts on this project can be found by going to the depts blog and searching for the word "Bailey". Here are the titles of those postings from most recent to earliest:
Simon Devereaux has approximately 10,000 records of people convicted in potentially capital cases between 1710 and 1840 in London heard at the Old Bailey court. This project will create a web-based database which will allow interested researchers and members of the public to compose queries on that data (e.g. women charged with robbery 1710-1720). It must be able to support a range of queries and produce output allowing researchers to identify trends in judicial practice over that time.
