British History Online is run by the Institute of Historical Research – the centre for the study of history in the UK – at the University of London. Our goal is to produce highly accurate digital versions of the core works of British history, as part of the Institute’s national role in historical research.
Highlights of the collection include:
- letters used as evidence against Mary, Queen of Scots, The Casket Letters, from the Calendar of State Papers for Scotland
- an architectural account of the Covent Garden Theatre and the Royal Opera House from the Survey of London
- the Bill of Rights from the Statutes of the Realm
- letters on the marriage of Katherine of Aragon from the Calendar of State Papers for Spain
- Titus Oates’s Narrative concerning the ‘Popish Plot’ from the House of Lords journal
Sources on local history can be found using an interactive, full-screen map.
The premium content consists of the Parliament Rolls of Medieval England (Edward I to Henry VII), all the volumes of the Calendar of State Papers, Domestic 1537-1714, the Calendars of State Papers for Scotland and Ireland, plus the Calendar of Close Rolls.
All 180 volumes are scanned and double re-keyed, with a guarantee of 99.9 per cent accuracy. This means that the search facility will be able to find all the content; none of it is hidden.
