17th Century Blog

Well, almost! As an English teacher, I found this too great not to blog on! Would-be actor and web designer Phil Gyford has taken on the task of re-creating Samuel Pepys' famous diary online as a blog, adding a new entry each day. He provides an intro, a summary and each entry has hyperlinks to relevant online material. (e.g. a picture of Pepys' wife in Flickr).

Really, this is beyond marvelous and a great primary source for English and History teachers alike.
