    Many here will share my joy at discovering, thanks to a colleague here, The
    Proceedings of the Old Bailey London 1674-1834,
    http://www.oldbaileyonline.org/, "A fully searchable online edition of the
    largest body of texts detailing the lives of non-elite people ever
    published, containing accounts of over 100,000 criminal trials held at
    London's central criminal court." Truly a treasure-trove of misery.
