Inquisitions post mortem (IPMs) at The National Archives have been described as the single most important source for the study of landed society in later medieval England. Following calendaring of the IPMs for 1422-47, the Arts and Humanities Research Council has funded Mapping the Medieval Countryside, the digitising of all the calendars on British History Online and the conversion into a webmounted interface of those for 1399-1447. This collaboration between the AHRC, University of Winchester, and Department for Digital Humanities, King’s College London reaches fruition this year. A previous conference in 2010 banked the discoveries of the calendaring about the operation of the system and its potential for future studies – demographic, economic, political, social etc. Proceedings were published as The Fifteenth-Century Inquisitions post mortem: A Companion, ed. Michael Hicks, Boydell& Brewer (Woodbridge, 2012). The digitising project enhances the IPMs for 1399-1422 and numerous interim findings are to be found in the featured IPMs, blogs and news on the project website This conference critically explores other aspects of the IPMs and their uses. Whilst further projects are also planned, future scholars anywhere will be able to exploit this enhanced digital resource to a much fuller extent than hitherto. The conference runs for 24 hours on Sunday 7th - Monday 8th September 2014. It is located at the University of Winchester’s West Downs site (the Business School) in Romsey Road, Winchester.   Further details see
