William Shakespeare's will (PDF)
is just one of over a million historical wills
that are now available to the public over the Internet thanks to Britain's National Archives. Among the 100 famous wills
available (for small fees) are Captain James Cook, Sir Francis Bacon, William Wordsworth, and Napoleon Bonaparte. An interesting little development in scholarship for the people.
