Abstract
The EAS Census is the research database of the Beyond the Tribal Hidage Project. The project examined the emergence of regional Anglo-Saxon kingdoms across southern England using archaeological data, adopting an explicitly comparative approach to establish reasons for spatial and temporal variation between different population groups. Three kingdoms shared a geographical region, yet each had contrasting characteristics at the point of entry into the historical record. The project database comprises all finds pots (to 2007), all burial records and all associated artefacts for the period AD450-700. The artefacts are identified by type, raw material and weight - this data was used to plot comparative distributions across the study area.
