Narrative of the Murder of Thomas Becket, Concerning the Betrothal of a Woman, Description of the City of London (1170-83), The Law of the Northumbrian Priests, The Life of King Alfred, Chronicle of Nantes, Encomium Emmae Reginae, Arrangements for the Coronation of Edward VI, A List of London Properties Belonging to Christ Church, Canterbury (c. 1100), The Hundred Ordinance, King Ethelred’s Treaty with the Viking Army—These and thousands of other documents (some of which are excerpts) can be found in this database. English Historical Documents (EHD) provides access to more than 5,500 primary documents relating to British (not simply English) history (500 to 1914). The documents were selected on the basis of being the “most important” ones relating to British history, so not every historical document the user seeks will be on the site. A companion or supplement including the last 100 years would add to this product’s appeal and value. Universities with graduate programs in history will find this a helpful resource for student and faculty research needs.
