Met with SD today so that I could get more familiar with the project. SD went over how he'd like the data displayed, and we talked about the current state of the project in general. He is pleased with the progress and is excited to see what lies ahead. He'll double-check the list of crimes, respites and outcomes before I send him the XML file for proofing. After we hammer down the conversion and validation process for the current data set (1800s), then the rest of the data (i.e. the rest of the 19th century) will fall into place relatively quickly.
So, the project is progressing well and both SD and myself are happy with the results thus far.

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.
