The Peterloo Witness Project
The Peterloo Witness project has collected and transcribed virtually all the eye-witness evidence for Peterloo – some 350 eye-witness accounts in all, together with information about over a thousand people who were there: victims, participants, witnesses, troops, reporters. Peterloo is the best-documented crowd event of the nineteenth century. The aim is to make all this material available online in time to support the bicentenary commemorations in 2019. The work has been done by research assistants and volunteers, supported in various ways by the British Academy, the National Archives, the Manchester Histories Festival, and the universities of Hertfordshire and Central Lancashire.
