HALOGEN - History Archaeology Linguistics Onomastics and GENetics

The Halogen project is part funded by JISC in the Research Data Management theme to implement a cross disciplinary research database to support the Roots of the British collaboration at the University of Leicester.

The cross-disciplinary Roots of the British (Wellcome Trust) collaboration between scholars in humanities and genetics seeks to interrogate the evidence for the migration and/or continuity of human populations in the British Isles in the distant past. The HALOGEN project supports the data management needs of the researchers involved and is thus helping establish organisational best practice in terms of data management planning and the support of diverse cross-disciplinary research data.


The University of Leicester issued a press release describing the project at launch. The researchers involved have now won a major Leverhulme Trust Programme award for Diasporas to carry out further research utilising the Halogen interdisciplinary database.
