The Discovery service is launched by the National Archives UK

The UK National Archives has launched a new search facility to provide easier access to our records. The Discovery service has been released in 'beta', or test form, and we are keen to get your feedback on how it can be improved. The new service enables you to filter search results by subject, date and series origin, as well as introducing map-based searching. Millions of individual document descriptions have been tagged using a list of more than 100 subject categories ranging from crime to shipping, nationality to tithes. The new system helps you to easily navigate your way through our collection and pinpoint the document you are looking for among the millions held at The National Archives
