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). New sites are added continuously and THANADOS will provide an online repository of all hitherto published Early Medieval cemeteries from the area of present day Austria. It is ongoing and will be extended by sites from the Czech Republic and other countries in the future. Also the timespan of the considered sites will be enlarged within further projects.
