New Online Resource for UMN - India, Raj and Empire

We recently acquired the online archive called India, Raj and Empire.  It is a collection of original manuscripts from the National Library of Scotland, comprising diaries, letters, maps, sketches and official and private papers relating to the British experience in India, principally from the 18th and 19th Centuries. 

A range of subjects is covered.  Highlights include:
  • Papers of Henry Dundas including extensive correspondence with Marquis Wellesley and Lord Cornwallis, governor-generals of India
  • Accounts of daily life in Agra, Bombay, Lahore, Madras and other areas
  • A diary of a trip down the Ganges in 1826
  • An account of life in the Madras army, 1768-1777
  • Records of the Mahratta wars, the Sikh wars, the war against Tipu Sultan, the Burmese war and other conflicts
  • Papers of an official of the East India Company
  • Records of Arbuthnot & Co, traders in Madras
  • The diary of a hunting expedition
  • An account of a duel, court martials and of the murder of a servant
  • Papers of Andrew Hunter, coffee planter, 1860-1870
  • Illustrated accounts of tea-planting in India, 1780-1855
  • Reminiscences of an indigo farmer
  • Discussions of Indian Nationalism in the 1930s
This is suitable for both archival research and class projects on colonial India.
