I read dead people!

Another juicy link via MetaFilter, this time on famous wills made available by the Public Record Office in the UK. The site is very slow, and you also have to pay to read all of them except for William Shakespeare’s. Who, by the way, had terrible handwriting. I know someone in the Classics department here who has to take a class in reading manuscripts — that’s a skill that would come in handy right about now.
