Default Pepys Diary

I don't know if anyone here is a fan of Samuel Pepys, who kept a diary in the 1660s. It is fascinating, having started just prior to the end of the Commonwealth (Cromwell) and the return of King Charles II to England. The diary continues through the years of the Great Plague in 1665-6 and the Great Fire of 1666.

A blog is posting the diary on a daily basis, giving events of the same day 443 years ago, with viewers commenting and annotating the passages. It has become one of my daily web visits, and it might interest some of you as well.

The site, with the current day, is at http://www.pepysdiary.com/.

Hope some of you find this of interest.
