This period of British history has one of the largest collections of digital sources available on the web, including not only digitised books, but also newspapers, manuscripts, genealogical records, and even maps and images. These sources, created by both academic and commercial organisations, are accessed by hundreds of thousands of individuals every day, across the world. Until now, there has been no single starting place to search through these sources.
The website will be fully launched in 2011.

A Welsh artist who painted two of Britain's World War I veterans shortly before their deaths has gifted final drawings of the pair to the nation.
Dan Llywelyn Hall, 29, originally from Cardiff, painted Henry Allingham, who was then the world's oldest man just a few days before he passed away.
His portrait of Britain's last Tommy, Harry Patch, 111, was completed by the artist months earlier.
The preparatory drawings made during sittings with the veterans have been gifted to the Royal Collection and the National Museum Wales to preserve them for future generations.
