Old Bailey texts now online..

I’m grateful to Nick for a heads up on the publication online of Old Bailey proceedings between 1674 to 1834. In particular he highlights this case against William Burnet for offences against the king : religious offences. Penalty: Death; drawn and quartered. As it helpfully notes in the Glossary:

Men found guilty of treason were sentenced to be drawn to the place of execution on a hurdle, hanged, cut down while still alive, and then disembowelled, castrated, beheaded and quartered.
