British History 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, we are making all of our transcribed content 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. Read about this new free content.
