British History Online

Midsummer Bonfire

The UVM Libraries now subscribe to British History Online, a digital library featuring sources documenting the history of the British Isles (England, Scotland, and Wales), from the 11th through the 19th centuries.

Topics include religious, legal, educational, cultural, parliamentary, regional, and urban history. Materials can be browsed by subject, place, time period, or source.

Sample documents such as 16th and 17th century journals from the House of Commons, historical diaries, and early maps of London can be located through browsing or keyword searching.

British History Online was created by the Institute of Historical Research and the History of Parliament Trust.

“Midsummer–The Bonfire” [illustration] appears in The Everyday book, Or a guide to the year: Describing the Popular Amusements, Sports, Ceremonies, Manners, Customs and Events, Incident to the three Hundred and Sixty-Five days, In past and present times, by William Hone, 1826.
