The Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England (PASE) is a major research project based at King's College London in the Department of History and the Centre for Computing in the Humanities, and at the Department of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic, University of Cambridge.[1]

From 2000, PASE has been funded by the British Arts and Humanities Research Council with the intention of recording everything that is known about anyone who lived in Anglo-Saxon England. The PASE online database[2] presents details (which it calls factoids) of the lives of every recorded individual who lived in, or was closely connected with, Anglo-Saxon England from 597 to 1042. It provides specific citations to (and often quotations from) each primary source describing those factoids.

The first phase of the project was launched at the British Academy on the 27 May 2005 and is freely available on the Internet at[2] Its second phase (PASE2) adds information drawn chiefly from the Domesday Book to the database.[3]
