"The European ethnohistory database is a unique resource which describes the movements and locations of 891 ethnic units (each a 'gens' or an archaeological assemblage) from 2200 BC to 1970 AD. The data were abstracted from a total of 191 secondary or tertiary ethnohistorical/archeological literature sources, as well as 91 historical maps. A total of 6161 records was originally captured from these materials, but only 3460 remain as accepted records after numerous checks to correct records, avoid duplications, and improve logical consistency between records."
