We are registering a charitable incorporated organisation under the name of Chronoscopic Education, to be the legal, funding and technology home for MarineLives, our sister project Maphackathon, and our new community, Signs of Literacy.

The aims of Chronoscopic Education are threefold:

(1) To further the teaching of palaeographic, digital research and project management skills, at universities and schools.

(2) To apply insights from small teams in management consultancy and R&D project management, together with tools from data science, to the subject matter of history.

(3) To build a virtual manuscript-based archive and associated research community, which will foster a culture of collaborative scholarship.
