Old Bailey trials go online
Trial papers from the Old Bailey have been digitised and made available on a new website by researchers from the Open University, and the Universities of Hertfordshire and Sheffield. The site hosts the records of Old Bailey Session Papers from 1674 to 1913, consisting of some 200,000 different cases. At the time of writing, the URL at www.oldbaileyonline.org was slow to access and terribly unstable, but it is well worth a look!
