1492 Exhibit Library of Congress - 16 views

  •  
    1492. Columbus. The date and the name provoke many questions related to the linking of very different parts of the world, the Western Hemisphere and the Mediterranean. What was life like in those areas before 1492? What spurred European expansion? How did European, African and American peoples react to each other? What were some of the immediate results of these contacts?1492: AN ONGOING VOYAGE addresses such questions by examining the rich mixture of societies coexisting in five areas of this hemisphere before European arrival. It then surveys the polyglot Mediterranean world at a dynamic turning point in its development.
    The exhibition examines the first sustained contacts between American people and European explorers, conquerors and settlers from 1492 to 1600. During this period, in the wake of Columbus's voyages, Africans also arrived in the hemisphere, usually as slaves. All of these encounters, some brutal and traumatic, others more gradual, irreversibly changed the way in which peoples in the Americas led their lives.
    The dramatic events following 1492 set the stage for numerous cultural interactions in the Americas which are still in progress - a complex and ongoing voyage.

    Pictorial Study Guides for American History

    These fellows presented their online study resource - which includes, introductions, lesson plans, timelines, fun facts, summaries and test reviews, and a large image gallery sorted by time period - at a conference I attended in Pasadena last Spring. I think it is better for High School teachers and students. I teach 8th grade and use it mostly for my own edification.

    "The modern world exists in a state of cultural, political, and economic globalisation. During the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries two nations, Portugal and Spain, pioneered the European discovery of sea routes that were the first channels of interaction between all of the world's continents, thus beginning the process of globalisation in which we all live today.

Parliament Rolls of Medieval England | British History Online - 2 views

  •  
    These medieval parliamentary records have just been released. They're part of the 'premium content' section but it's only 30 pounds per year to access so might be worth it.

Maps of War ::: Visual History of War, Religion, and Government - 15 views

  •  
    Animated maps showing the imperial history of the Middle East and the spread of religions. The graphics are beautiful and provide a simple overview of the broad sweep of history. I've found these useful at the start of a unit/semester/term to provide a general introduction. My students think they need a hard rock track in the background as a soundtrack...
