MESH (Mapping Edinburgh Social History)


Edinburgh University has received an AHRC grant to fund a 3-year project to create a digital and hard copy Atlas of Edinburgh, covering six periods:

  • the early city
  • medieval c.1300-1550
  • early modern 1550-1680
  • Enlightenment Edinburgh 1680-1820
  • c.1820-1914
  • 1914-2000

The project builds upon the previous Visualising Urban Geographies project and is led by Richard Rodger, Professor of Economic and Social History.
