From 16th-century origins as a trading venture to the East Indies, through to its rise as the world’s most powerful company and de facto ruler of India, to its demise amid allegations of greed and corruption, the East India Company was an extraordinary force in global history for three centuries.

This digital resource allows students and researchers to access a vast and remarkable collection of primary source documents from the India Office Records held by the British Library, the single most important archive for the study of the East India Company.

This incredible story is told through the manuscript records of the period, with over 1.2 million pages of content digitised. This ambitious project transforms the accessibility of these archival documents, with enhanced viewing and browsing tools allowing for easy navigation.

 

從1600年公司獲得特許到1947年印度獨立,《英國東印度公司檔案》訴說關於與東方貿易、政治及大英帝國興衰的故事。它記錄了全球化世界的挑戰,並闡明許多對比的觀點:從有權有勢政治人物的紀錄、到當地百姓的生活和依存帝國生活和工作的貿易商們。

透過120萬頁數位化的手稿紀錄訴說這令人難以置信的故事。這個野心勃勃的計畫透過強化的檢視和瀏覽工具,使這些歷史文獻更容易取得和探索。

《英國東印度公司檔案》分為三個部分:

第一部分:貿易、統治和帝國,1600-1947

第二和第三部分:南亞、東南亞、中國、日本和中東工廠紀錄 (1595-1870)
