Gruber-Tokić, Elisabeth; Hiebel, Gerald; Peralta Fridburg, Milena; Danthine, Brigit

The dataset is split in two separated files in CSV format (UTF 8):

1) Historical place gazetteer: It contains historical tyrolean names of places (core region: districts Kufstein, Schwaz; Austria) within the mining documents Hs. 37 and Hs. 1587 and their modern equivalents enriched with unique Identifiers. Furthermore, Places were localised and georeferenced as far as current scientific data and knowledge permit. A final column shows corresponding IDs between Hs. 37 and Hs. 1587.

2) Historical mine register: The file contains historical  Tyrolean names of mines and pits (core region: district Kufsten, Schwaz) within the mining documents Hs. 37 and Hs. 1587 as well as a modern standardisation of the names. The mines also received unique Identifiers.

The registers were generated by the research team of the project “Text Mining Medieval Mining Texts” (2019-2022). Two historical mining sources were processed: “Verleihbuch der Rattenberger Bergrichter” ( Hs. 37, 1460-1463) and “Schwazer Berglehenbuch” (Hs. 1587, approx. 1515) stored by the Tyrolean Regional Archive, Innsbruck (Austria). The central research objective of T.M.M.M.T. is the extraction and representation of the legal relationships between people, claims and mines over space and time. Furthermore it deals with the semantically opening and visualisation of the montanistic network of two tyrolean mining regions.
