United Kingdom's National Archive DocumentsOnline.

The United Kingdom's National Archives has digitized and made available online (for a small fee) one million historical documents including the wills of Shakespeare, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Jane Austen.

Shakespeare's will has been available on the internet for a while but the latest project has made it much easier to access.

"This is a fantastic resource that can bring history so much closer to us," said TV personality Tony Robinson, who presents the archaeology programme Time Team.

"I've no doubt it will turn into a cult website. We can now all be historical researchers in the comfort of our own homes."

DocumentsOnline also contains government papers newly released after 30 years under lock and key.
