Justin Muchnick's contribution

On May 30 Justin presented his work at the CESTA poster symposium. Since January he has added 736 new entries, created for the travelers who were revealed to us by NLP of the entire text, and who were previously subsumed within the entries of other travelers. Around 500 of the new additions were women (before this we had only 263 women entries!) and around 60 unnamed persons, mostly children, and a few servants. This effort significantly changes the demographics of the database!
