"The Use of Complex Networks in History: a case study"

"The Use of Complex Networks in History: a case study"

In the last few years historians have become aware of the possibility of using Network Theory as a tool to better understand major historical events, which may span several decades or even centuries and involve hundreds of actors. In this seminar I will talk about my experience working with historians on the events that gave rise to what is known today as England. I will present our analysis of Bede's "Ecclesiastical History of the English People". The Venerable Bede (ca. 672 - 735 A.D.) was an English monk and one of the main scholars of his times. He wrote extensively on the history of England, starting with the Roman conquest by Julius Caesar up to his lifetime. He is considered the father of English history and is also known for his book and teachings on the mathematics of calendar calculations (computus).
