Six Degrees of Francis Bacon
Six Degrees of Francis Bacon (SDFB) is a collaborative reconstruction of the social network of early modern Britain (1500-1700). SDFB shows who likely knew whom in the age of Elizabeth, Bacon, Shakespeare, and Hobbes.

First, the SDFB team mined the history of scholarship to estimate and visualize over 180,000+ relationships. On this site, scholars, students, and citizen humanists are expanding, curating, and revising early modern British history.
