Searchable Old Bailey archives

From the Inbox:


“I came accross this little nugget – the Old Bailey, London’s most famous and prestigious court has put its archive from 1674 to 1874 online. It’s facinating to see the punishments metered out for ‘crimes’ – two conesting adult men were sentanced to death for the act of sodomy, people were ‘transported’ (sent to the colonies) for years for stealling a pair of breeches. I hope you find this site as interesting as I did.” ~ Liz

Thanks Liz! This is a great find.
