Following a successful trial, we now have permanent access to The Cecil Papers database.

The Cecil Papers form an archive of 16th and 17th century manuscripts, privately held by the Gascoyne-Cecil family at Hatfield House in Hertfordshire.

It contains nearly 30,000 documents gathered by William Cecil, Lord Burghley (1520-1598) and his son Robert Cecil, the 1st Earl of Salisbury (1563-1612), both Secretary of State to Elizabeth I.

Please see this earlier post for more information.
