English Historical Documents online – free trial

EHD iconUniversity of Cambridge users can now access Routledge’s English Historical Documents (EHD) online for a trial period. Launched in November 2013, this online resource contains over 5,500 indexed and fully searchable key primary documents on British History from 12 volumes, spanning over 1400 years. The collection includes the out of print American Colonial Documents to 1776, edited by Merrill Jensen, and Dorothy Whitelock’s Volume 1, 500 – 1042, critical for those studying Anglo-Saxon literature and history.

Content can be explored by subject, date, people and places. Users can create their own personalised login where they may highlight and annotate documents, bookmark entries, save and manage searches. Documents can be opened as PDFs and printed, downloaded, shared, and cited.
