Google News Archive Search

Google has launched a news archive search facility.

It features 200 years of archival data from the New York Times and the UK's Guardian, but includes most of the sources available from 'live' Google News.

It's a really useful service that lets you view articles on timelines to get a real sense for the flow and context of world news, giving current news articles an instant sense of history.

This will be a boon for schools, researchers, and anyone interested in knowing the how and why of things, provided in the context of their time.
