The Overland Trade Project was the idea of Professor Michael Hicks of the University of Winchester under whose direction it was set up. Dr. Winifred Harwood devised the database, undertook all transcription and data entry and planned this website

This website was developed jointly by the University of Winchester and the GeoData Institute, University of Southampton.

The project which will present data from the Southampton brokage books for the period 1430-1540 in a fully searchable and interactive database linked to a mapping system, would not have been possible without the support of the following organisationsand people; their support is gratefully acknowledged.
