Empire Online

Empire Online is a collection of original documents relating to Empire Studies, sourced from libraries and archives around the world.

By its very nature, Empire Studies is a global subject, and from the early days of maritime exploration there were many countries competing for territory, influence and new sources of trade. Emire Online has not focused on the development of the British Empire in isolation. Thus, there are a number of documents included in Empire Online which relate the story of Empire from the American, French, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese and German points of view, and that from indigenous peoples from Africa, India and North America. The focus of the project is on original documents and thus a number of these texts are not in English.
