Several datasets can be downloaded below as part of the project outputs.
High Court of Admiralty (HCA) – England’s wage dataset and accompanying document
The HCA wage dataset is the largest dataset of the project, and is accompanied by a descriptive report. The data was compiled as part of the research undertaken by the project 'Sailing into Modernity' in 2012-2014.
The main objective of this project was to deliver a comparative analysis of the social, political, legal, and economic position of seafarers in four European countries (England, France, Italy, and the Netherlands) from the late sixteenth to the early eighteenth century.
