We are getting a fair bit of media coverage about our witches data project https://witches.is.ed.ac.uk/. You’ll remember that at the start of the summer we advertised for a ‘witchfinder general’ intern.
The project is now complete and the work done by our Wikimedian in Residence, Ewan alongside our Witches GIS Data Intern, Emma is properly impressive. It offers whole new ways of engaging with this historical data collection.

Emma presented her work at the recent ALT conference , to an audience of interested learning technologists. We’ll be speaking about it again on Saturday at a series of lectures on why open source is the future: edin.ac/open-edi-talks (EASE login required) and at genderED annual interdisciplinary showcase 21 October.
