Encyclopedias


They have existed for around 2,000 years; the oldest still in existence, Naturalis Historia, was written in ca. 77 CE by Pliny the Elder.

The modern Encyclopedia evolved out of dictionaries around the 17th century. Historically, some Encyclopedias were contained in one volume, but some, such as the Encyclopaedia Britannica, became huge multi-volume works.

Some modern Encyclopedias are electronic and are often freely available, for example Wikipedia and Citizendium.

    I use Wiki a lot. It's a brilliant, invaluable for historical stuff, and probably one of the most accurate sites.
