Introducing the Georgian Papers Programme

Academics from King’s College London and the Royal Library & Archives have designed the Georgian Papers Programme to enrich public historical understanding of Britain, George III, British monarchy and a crucial period in British and world history. With primary US partners the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture and the College of William & Mary, as well as other international participants, the project will highlight the importance of eighteenth-century North American and Atlantic history.

By 2020 the digitized materials documenting the Hanoverian Dynasty, dating from 1714-1837, will offer an online archive and library available to all—academics and the public. The digitization and cataloguing of these documents will allow them to be searched and analysed in creative and flexible ways. The Georgian Paper Programme is of particular value to universities, schools, academics and authors in the UK, the United States, Europe, the Commonwealth and around the world.
