An experiment in teaching with historical texts still in the early stages of development, Virtual Norfolk (Norfolk County, UK) offers five content modules that include seminars, topics, and illustrative documents. For example, the Social History of Early Modern England module includes the Everyday Lives seminar, which has among its topics Crime and the Law, where one can read the digitized version of "prosecution of Benet Goodwyn for whoring" from Norwich City Records, City Quarter Sessions, Book of Examinations and Depositions, 1561-67. Some introductory sections and commentaries have yet to be written by project staff, scholars from the University of East Anglia, and the glossary "will appear here shortly." Although parts of the site are still under construction, all historical texts are searchable by keyword; so, it is quite easy for users to broaden a search after looking over a few documents and discovering terms of interest.
