Happy at Bath


A really interesting resource for those researching Bath in the time of Jane Austen has gone online.

A database of newspaper articles from the Bath Chronicle from 1770 through 1800 is available online. The archive is still in the process of completion, but in the meantime “You can search the Georgian Newspaper Project database on many subjects, including art, fashion, crime, punishment, pets and politics, to find out about life in Georgian Bath.” Sounds good to us!

(Oh, if only one could go to Bath! A little spa-bathing would set us up forever. But then the spa is not open yet anyway.)

Thanks to Alert Janeite Marmee for sending us the link!
