A real treasure discovered in the web!

This site is a presentation of the diaries of Samuel Pepys, the renowned 17th century diarist who lived in London, England. A new entry written by Pepys is published each day; 1 January 1660 was published on 1 January 2003. The site offers also a discussion forum where "pepysologists" annotate every diary entry, plus lots of background info on 17th century fashion, health, money, government, travels, food etc.

Have funicon_smile.gif

Great site, thanks Magda!
All the more interesting as I am currently reading the fascinating biography by Claire Tomalin "Samuel Pepys, The Unequalled Self" (the 2002 Whitbread prize winner). I was thinking of reading the diary next but was a bit daunted by the size, this site reduces it into nice manageable snippets.
