This edition

This edition has been created by modernizing the text provide online by the Holinshed Project, compared where with the online graphic images at the University of Pennsylvania. I have retained many, but not all, of the marginal references, since they provide a useful way of navigating highlights and timelines. I have provided light annotation for the convenience of readers less familiar with the language of Holinshed's time, and have changed names to their modern equivalence where that was obvious. This is not, however, a fully scholarly edition; Holinshed deserves one, but that will no doubt have to wait until the Holinshed project reaches maturity.
