I just discovered a post dated yesterday at the Society of Professional Journalists’ blog, entitled “History/Fact-Checking“. This consisted of a listing of online history-related resources, including this entry:
Old Bailey Online: History Site
From the famous British courthouse, this online database covers more than 22,000 trials dating between 1714 and 1759. Read the actual transcripts from historic proceedings, view the original documents, etc.
Only about, ooh, 5 years out of date there then. If I were a nice person I’d email them and quietly point it out, wouldn’t I? But I’m not, so I’m just going to point and laugh on my blog.
