Charles Babbage

Description: This website is really helpful because it contains passages that Charles Babbage wrote himself during his life. They explain in detail everything you would want to know about his Analytical Engine; how he thought of it, how he tried to build it, etc. It is neat to read actually what he wrote in his own words, getting a better perspective on the process. The website also gives you other helpful links to museums and the Charles Babbage institute.
