Welcome to Historical Newspapers.

Latest Update: The various regional versions of this service have now been re-organised into a single site - this one - and named "Historical Newspapers". All previous top-level URLs will continue to direct users towards this service and bookmarks should continue to work.

We have also changed the format of "Print View" images, within Palmer's Full Text Online. These are now delivered as PDF files and users may need to download the Adobe Acrobat Reader (if they have not done so previously) in order to view them.

Historical Newspapers is a website for historians that provides valuable reference material for students of nineteenth- and twentieth-century history.

Using newspaper coverage and indexes to some of the best news coverage across two continents and two centuries, Historical Newspapers creates a fascinating window on the past.

You can find the full text of articles illustrating British attitudes towards the United States in the early 1800's and then find references to articles dealing with American reactions to British events in the early twentieth century.

You can trace the development of technology from the power loom to the space shuttle or the end of slavery and the enfranchisement of women. Historical Newspapers will expand continually to provide further primary and secondary historical sources.
