Times opens up 200-year digital archive

The Times has officially opened up its digital archive of 200 years of newspapers.

The archive, which was launched in beta last month, features content from the paper between January 1 1785 and December 31 1985.

A few pages are missing, according to the site’s FAQs, and there are no editions from December 1 1978 to November 12 1979 because of an industrial dispute at the time.

Each edition has been digitally scanned and the archive has a very speedy and accurate search.

Access to the archive will be free for an introductory period, but registration with TimesOnline is required.
