In addition to the hierarchical chapter structure i.e. Music/Musical societies/Musical instruments , numerous hyperlinks bring to light interdisciplinary connections such as Maps/Architecture/Social life.
Animations created for our website, such as the interactive 'language of the fan' or the animation projecting the literary circuit of Moll Flanders on to a map of London, are meant to reconstruct the social or technical practices of the time; they include exercises to be done by the visitor such as the 'surveyor's problem' which sets a mathematical question on the uses of a geometrical instrument - the theodolite.
The documents included have been obtained from numerous institutions, such as the National Gallery, the National Trust, the Royal Collection, Goodwood House, the National Galleries of Scotland, the Fashion Museum in Bath, the Department of Architecture of the University of Bath.
The website is in open access. It was authored by our research centre at the Sorbonne, http://www.csti.paris-sorbonne.fr , and went live in late 2014 to mark the Georgian tercentenary.
