Cambridge Archive Editions Online is the first-ever digital presentation of the exceptionally well-known and respected series of British archival reprints.
Cambridge Archive Editions (CAE) identifies, selects, arranges, and describes a wide range of the most important documents from the British Government records to create a true survey of an historical period, political movement, or a country’s development.
In the Near and Middle East Collection, CAE utilizes Britain’s rich history with Middle Eastern countries via its East India Company trade routes up through the Persian Gulf. The British archives have particularly deep veins of material on boundary formation, tribal relations, state development and political relations.
