Abstract
The Historical Violence Database (HVD) is a collaborative research project to gather data on the history of violent crime, violent death, and collective violence. The database will serve as a repository for historical research (research notes, handwritten worksheets, spreadsheets, scans and photographs of original documents, etc.) and will integrate that research into a single information system based on standard worksheets and spreadsheets. The goal is to create a "calendar of cases" that can be amended and augmented. The HVD will also serve as an archive for historic data compiled by public agencies and for early town and county histories that studied violence.
