Medieval London Murder Map

Just found this on The Guardian online ...

... an interactive map showing murders as recorded in the (several) surviving Coroner's Rolls for the early 13th century.

Don't go overboard and assume medieval London was murder capital of the world, though -- but the Coroners often gave fairly detailed accounts which may get your creative juices flowing!

      Have you tried going to the upper level site ...

      https://www.vrc.crim.cam.ac.uk

      ... and drilling down from there?

      Or tried another Browser ... it works for me in Opera, IE and Chrome on a machine running Windows 8.1

      Too bad the website won't show the map - "403 Forbidden - Request forbidden by administrative rules"
