The Web as history

Peter Webster is one of the contributors to this new book from UCL Press, showcasing new research and methodological reflection on web archives as a new kind of scholarly resource. Edited by Niels Brügger and Ralph Schroeder, it is published on an Open Access basis, meaning that it is free to download.

Peter’s chapter uses a public controversy in the UK over secular and religious law as an example of the possibilities afforded to historians by the analysis of the link structure of the Web. See more of his publications.
