Free Times Archive goes online

By Staff

19th June 2008


Archive issues of The Times dating back to 1785 are now available for free on the paper’s website.

Times Online now allows access to scans of almost every issue of the daily paper published between 1785 and 1985, including original adverts. There is currently no subscription fee.

The project has been overseen by Anne Spackman, editor in chief of Times Online.

Editions of The Times dating from 1985 to the current day, and sister title The Sunday Times, will be added at a later date.
