Tudor and Stuart state secrets online (UK)

Tudor and Stuart state secrets online (UK)From UK National Archives: "The largest set of government documents from the Early Modern period is now available online for academic research. The fourth and final part of State Papers Online, 1509-1714 offers students and researchers unprecedented access to documents covering the full range of the Tudor and Stuart governments' domestic and foreign activities. Letters and top secret reports expose the backroom politics of the Tudor and Stuart regimes, alert to the threats of internal rebellion and foreign invasion. The material includes accounts of espionage and treason, detailed ambassadorial intelligence reports, and letters between the monarchs and rulers of Europe as they vied for power and brokered alliances"
