The Georgian Ghosts Project
The Georgian Ghosts Project is a digital showcase produced by a group of undergraduate students at the University of Warwick (Jessica Barton, Serena Gupta, Luke Holloway, Eddie Kaye, Dan Smith and Martyna Wrona). It explores a fascinating 1780s manuscript, most likely by the Methodist Hester Ann Rogers, that recounts a ghost story from Cork, Ireland. Resources include an illustrated storyboard, a podcast, a poster on early modern ghost stories and blog posts on gender, religion, print culture and Irish architecture.

Punishers and Protectors
Punishers and Protectors: Angels in Seventeenth-Century England is a digital showcase bringing together the work of several undergraduate History students at the University of Warwick (Georgia Cirillo, Tamyla Jawahir, Jenna Meakin, Hana Noor-Khan and Anna Sharp). It features accessible analyses of a selection of seventeenth-century documents, each of which offers a different perspective on the character of early modern angels. The showcase reveals that angels of the past were often frightening figures; they safeguarded Christians but also wreaked vengeance against sinners.
