Locating London’s Past

Locating London’s Past is an interactive website which allows users to search the locations of crimes as recorded at the Old Bailey between 1674 and 1913. MOLA provided spatial data, manipulated digital images and related historic maps to the modern landscape, creating a seamless map. The Locating London’s Past website is widely used by historical researchers and won the 2014 British Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies’ (BSECS) Prize for Digital Resources.
