Full descriptionThis dataset accompanies the paper 'Reintegrating Historical Records through Digital Data Linking: Convicts Prosecuted for Collective Action in Van Diemen’s Land' from the Journal of Australian Colonial History (2020).
The tables include 4,698 individual arraignments before the Port Arthur magistrate's bench between 1830-68. These have been sorted according to the type of charge, to identify the extent of collective action amongst the convicts. Two sheets within the workbook separate the arraignments according to type.
It is based upon a dataset created during the ARC-funded project Landscapes of Production and Punishment: The Tasman Peninsula 1830-77 (DP170103642). This was compiled through the work of volunteers, the data coordinators (Melissa Gibbs, Kelsey Priestman and Chris Gallagher) and database manager (Trudy Cowley).
