Established in 1993, The Probert Encyclopaedia is one of the World Wide Web's
longest running, largest and most celebrated independent encyclopaedias famed
for its originality, reliability and integrity. Because we are independent
we can be different. The Probert Encyclopaedia strives to provide accurate,
reliable information to everyone. In March 2013 The Probert Encyclopaedia
became part of the New Society for the Diffusion of Knowledge
(NSDK), a not-for-profit organisation
providing free information through the World Wide Web.
The Probert Encyclopaedia is a fully searchable encyclopedia and English dictionary,
and you can browse the various subject sections using the navigation menu to the left.
Each article is fully hyperlinked to associated articles, and related articles can
be retrieved with a single mouse click by selecting the 'Research' link at
the end of the topic.

We recently acquired a large number of contemporary manuscripts from
the Boer War which included a number of maps of the battle fields
drawn at the time and photographs.
The maps and many of the photographs have been digitised and can now be found
in the appropriate sections of the Map Archive and Photo Library.
The manuscripts also included information about a large number of British
and Boer leaders, generals and heroes. Sadly, most of these individuals
have been all but forgotten through time, and we are experiencing great
difficulty in sourcing additional biographical information about what
happened to them following the end of the Boer War in 1902. Not withstanding
we are adding information as and when it comes to light.
