FLAG Project

Finance, law and the language of governmental practice in late medieval towns: Aberdeen and Augsburg in comparison

‘FLAG’ is an exciting new project to place the Aberdeen Registers Online: 1398-1511 into comparison with Augsburg’s Master Builder’s Ledgers (Die Augsburger Baumeisterbücher) covering 1320-1466.

A new funding award, from the AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) and the German Research Foundation (DFG) will see the University of Aberdeen and Johannes Gutenberg University (JGU) Mainz work together to establish a broader European context for both digital resources, investigating how these different towns put government into practice in the later middle ages.

The project will be led by Dr Jackson Armstrong (Aberdeen) and Professor Dr Jörg Rogge (Mainz). It will run from 2020-2023. More information will follow in the coming months.
