LanguageWare and the 1641 Depositions


Between 2007 and 2010, the ‘1641 Depositions’, 20,000 pages of witness testimony collected by government-appointed commissioners on the rebellion by the Catholic Irish in 17th century Ireland, were transcribed and digitized by researchers from Trinity College Dublin and the University of Aberdeen. This unique corpus provides unparalleled insights into a range of historical, social, religious and linguistic concerns.
