Can be viewed with markup to purchase, and embedded with the same ad across the video.

History of the United Kingdom: Primary Documents - EuroDocs - 0 views

  •  
    This site forms part of the larger EuroDocs site, created by Richard Hacken at Brigham Young University. The History of the United Kingdom: Primary Documents site provides links to over one hundred documents relating to the history of the United Kingdom from the eighth century to the present day. The documents have been chosen on the grounds that they relate to key historical events. The documents linked to on the site include, for example, Ruthwell Cross runic inscriptions, Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, The Statutes of William the Conqueror, the Magna Carta, The Elizabethan Homilies 1623, Proclamation of Rebellion 1775 and documents from WWI and WWII. The documents are available as transcriptions or facsimiles of the originals.

The Celtic Literature Collective - 0 views

  •  
    This is an attempt to collect as many possible early and medieval texts produced in the "Celtic" countries, or on Celtic themes (hence the inclusion of Continental Arthurian works). Some works are actually links off-site; others are provided here at the CLC.

    I should note that most of the translations are old--often seventy-five years and older. The older the translation, the worse it seems to be, especially the Welsh. However, given the copyright laws, I cannot give anything more recent (or more accurate) without running into trouble. Even if a book is out of print, that doesn't mean its copyright has run out. There are a few exceptions, namely James Clancy's translation of "Y Gododdin", used with the (after-the-fact) permission of his son. The other is Dell Skeel's translation of the Didot Perceval text, from the 1960s; again, I'd like to thank both Mr. Skeel and Thomas Clancy for allowing me to provide these translations to the public.
