Capital Trials at the Old Bailey Courthouse

The Old Bailey project combines references to published accounts with court records and editorial categories (types of crimes, respites and outcomes, and groupings of each of those types) to investigate the relationship between judicial autonomy and statutory requirements in the application of the law over centuries. Search queries return both a text-based result report (with full details on each trial) and a graphical representation of the results (to emphasize patterns in the set of trials returned.) The site has been available to the public since early 2017.
