The supporting documentation includes information on the objectives of the data collection effort, the provenance of the historical source material from which the data are derived, the structure of the dataset, and the outputs that have been generated. These documents have been drafted by the data providers and edited by Michaela Barnard, John Nicholls and David Starkey.
