Free Online Papers, Books & Theses

For papers and books, I suggest searching via keywords that are relevant to you e.g. if you want an article on Crannogs, search (CTRL+F) for ‘crannog’, but I’ve also put them in a thematic list as well (this duplicates many entries that have multiple themes or keywords).
