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...

    This site isn't very user-friendly (it looks like a page from MS-DOS) but has primary texts relating to ancient Greece, Rome, Persia and Assyria.

Exploring Ancient World Cultures - 3 views

    I usually don't add secondary sources (I've found books are much more comprehensive - secondary websites seem usually quite simplistic in their treatments) but thought this might be useful for people working with younger classes doing preliminary research or activities on ancient civilisations.

Ancient History Web Sites - 1 views

  •  
    An excellent list of sites related to Ancient History, focussing mainly on the Classical West and the Near East. I wonder why the Chinese and Indians and others still don't count as 'Ancient History' to most people? A great collection, though.

    This seems to have some high-quality images of artefacts. Not sure if there are documentary sources, though.

      Another of the excellent sourcebooks run by those Jesuits at Fordham Uni. This is the best online primary source research for the ancient world I've found.

    Flickr: "History & Antiquities (Post 5 - Award 3)" - 0 views

    •  
      This is a flickr group devoted to images of ancient sites, artefacts and churches. They are making an effort to make sure that people correctly tag and date the images so might be useful for you. There are squillions of flickr sites for history images - I won't save them all to the group. If you're looking for images though for your classes, perhaps take a look...

    MacroHistory : World History - 0 views

    •  
      I usually avoid adding online secondary sources (most of them are so cursory and unreliable, in my experience) but this one has some substantial information on obscure topics that students often struggle to get information on, such as Bronze Age Mesopotamia. They'll definitely need to be careful with some of the details though and corroborate any information they use.
