About the Project

Georgian Pingbacks (part of the Scissors and Paste Project) is a collaboration between Dr M. H. Beals and British Library Labs and generously funded by the Enterprise Project Group at Loughborough University. It aims to create a database on attribution and copying in early 19th-century British newspapers and make this freely available to all users of these fascinating, if somewhat elusive, historical artifacts.

This site was produced in colloboration with undergraduate students from the Politics, History and International Relations department of Loughborough University. Without their hard work, this project would not have been possible: Will Dickinson, Alice Gilbert, Ollie Luhrs, Alex Mackinder, Pooja Makwana, Matthew McCulloch, Jonny Ord, Rachel Schaanning, Emily Stanyard, Gavin Tennant, Rebecca Thompson, and Hannah Whittam.
