This new website will provide access, using an integrated search facility, to primary sources containing 240,000 pages of manuscripts sources, and 3.2 million names, reflecting the history of eighteenth-century London. It includes the 18th century material from the Old Bailey Online; the manuscript records of quarter sessions, three London parishes, Bridewell, St Thomasís Hospital, and the Carpenterís Company; datasets from the Westminster Pauper Biographies Project; and several datasets formerly deposited with the Arts and Humanities Data Service.
Conceived as an unconference, this event is designed to allow as many participants as possible to contribute in as many ways as possible. Contributions are invited from anyone whose research will benefit from use of the site.
