BRITISH HISTORY ONLINE


BRITISH HISTORY ONLINE is a not-for-profit digital library based at the Institute of Historical Research. It brings together material for British history from the collections of libraries, archives, museums and academics. These primary and secondary sources, which range from medieval to twentieth century, are easily searchable and browsable online.
British History Online is a collection of nearly 1300 volumes of primary and secondary content relating to British and Irish history, and histories of empire and the British world. BHO also provides access to 40,000 images and 10,000 tiles of historic maps of the British Isles.

Because of the UK lockdown, all transcribed content is free until 31 July 2021. This is a contribution to the work of researchers, teachers and students while library and archive access is difficult or impossible.

To use the free content until the end of July 2021, simply use the search facility or browse catalogue or subject guides. No need to set up an account or subscribe at this stage.
