The Anglo-American Legal Tradition (Robert Palmer, University of Houston Law Center)
A huge project to digitise medieval and early-modern English legal records, and to make the images freely available through the Internet. The records covered are from the period 1272-1650, and include plea rolls (CP 40, KB 27 and E 13), Exchequer memoranda rolls (E 159 and E 368) and other series (C 33, JUST 1 [to 1350], E 124, E 126, REQ 1, DL 5 and CHES 14). Images are already available for the reigns of Edward I, Edward III and Henry VIII-Charles I, and more material is being added at the rate of 400,000 images per year. The site also includes some transcribed examples.
