THANADOS is a Digital Humanities research project on archaeologically and anthropologically investigated burials. The project started in June 2019. The region under study is present day Austria and the period we are dealing with are the Early Middle Ages (600 until 1100 AD). Is work in progress. New sites are added continuously.
