Tacitus Historical Atlas - 3 views

    A collection of historical maps focusing on medieval and modern European history. They're not the best quality but might be useful.

Dan Carlin - Hardcore History Archive - 9 views

  •  
    This is the latest episode from the Hardcore History program, a podcast updated every month or two focussing on historical topics in often novel ways. Dan Carlin has a Bachelor degree in military history and his focus is on military and social history, which I and my students find interesting. I think sometimes his versions of history can be spurious (the latest one in particular) yet the value of podcasts for student learning are enormous. I make my students download iTunes and get them through that. Happy listening!

Gladiator Motion Picture - 7 views

Does anyone use Gladiator in their classes during a unit on the Roman Empire? If you do, can you share any ideas? I am looking to connect my students' interest in the film with an educationally s...

Subject:History - Wikibooks, collection of open-content textbooks - 9 views

  •  
    Still into the wikis. This collection doesn't show evidence of much development yet, however it could grow into a quality collection in future. Some of the topics are a little obscure. 'A History of Nejd'. Not quite sure on that one.

    Has plenty of links to sites with historical images; very useful when creating resources for classes. I'm into Wikimedia stuff tonight. Sorry if you hate it.

http://www.bsrdigitalcollections.it - 4 views

  •  
    The British School at Rome Archive (BSR) thanks to the Getty Foundation, made freely available digital copies of the John Bryan Ward-Perkins photographic collection. A website of the "BSR digital collections was created to present not only the photographic material (Photographs) but also other types of resources which follow into different categories: Maps, Prints, Documents, Postcards, Drawings, Paintings and Manuscripts".
    But "the majority of the digital images displayed on the website are represented by the photographic prints and negatives from unique historic collections, including calotypes, glass and film negatives, slides and lantern slides."

    Seems to focus more on the history of the British School at Rome rather than Roman history. Should revise the tags at this point but this summer heat here in Queensland is making me lazy...

Watch movies about History on NonFictionVideos.com using your iPhone - 9 views

  •  
    How cool is this? A (hopefully legal...) collection of free documentaries. There are 61 full-length history documentaries at the moment including 'Fog of War', a documentary about the Kennedy administration.

LacusCurtius * Greek and Latin Texts - 4 views

  •  
    An excellent collection of English translations of Greek and Latin texts. You'll also find some great biographical information on the authors that students can use to improve their source evaluations (if you teach in a system which requires that - it's massive here in Queensland).

Harvard College Library - 5 views

  •  
    It's a rather obscure topic but you never know, they might be useful for someone. Most of the manuscripts are partial and are from the Roman period in Egypt.

  •  
    Good for basic research or a lesson activity. Some of the articles looked alright. I'm not sure how the content is generated or if it's very reliable.

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...

British Academy | PORTAL - Classical Antiquity - 8 views

  •  
    A cornucopia of history sites that I got from the excellent NCSS History group. If I was a really diligent group member I would save them each individually. But I'm not.

History Guide NG - 2 views

  •  
    I'm being lazy. I've been going through and saving these sites individually but I'm sick of looking at them. I'll come back later and finish the job.
    There are heaps of sites there on ancient history.

ODL - Digital Initatives at Oxford University - 1 views

  •  
    I'm being lazy by saving such a large number of collections at once, however there's no other way for me to get through all of the sites I have sitting in my browser. I'll probably come back later and save them individually.

VoS: Voice of the Shuttle - 1 views

  •  
    There is a plethora of links here to valuable online source sites as well as a few dead links. Also covers topics outside of history.

Digital Collections at Columbia - 0 views

  •  
    An excellent set of digital source collections run by Columbia Uni. I've been meaning to save all these collections individually but it's such a massive task that I'm just saving the root pages of the collections. If you have a look through these you'll find some gems. And if you save them to the group you will have my undying affection (just please use the same tagging standards - it keeps the information findable).
