There are things on the internet...

... that you would not expect. Well, me, at least.

Newest case in point? Old Bailey Proceedings.

Old Bailey is the central criminal court in Britain, and has been active since the 16th century. The court proceedings from 1674 onward are published, and they are also digitised and put online as a fully searchable repository.

You can go to the project website here, where you can learn more about what is digitised and how to use the search functions. And then, of course, browse through the records... Use for non-commercial purposes is free of charge, by the way, too.

This is one of the reasons why I love the internet. So much.
