Prisons Project Posted

Posted the student project on "The Prison System of Early Modern London." This project was written by Tara Drouillard and posted to the closed University of Windsor site in 2001. I edited it lightly and re-encoded it for the mapoflondon.uvic.ca site. It is visible at http://mapoflondon.uvic.ca/render_page.php?id=PRIS1. Bibliographic reference to Baker is not clear; will have CvdM check it out.

This project allows literary and scholarly works (primary and secondary) to be associated with locations in London, providing the reader with a richer understanding of the works.
