Best of History Websites

27 Aug

I recently stumbled upon an amazing website that is a must-see for any history buff: www.besthistorysites.net. This site is a directory of over 1200 of the best history websites on the internet. Although designed as a resource guide for teachers, any history fan can enjoy it. One of my favorites is the British Library’s Turning The Pages website, which contains scanned copies of Mozart’s music diary, William Blake’s notebook and Leonardo DaVinci’s sketch book.

Best of the History Websites covers topics ranging from prehistory and biblical times up through modern times, such as the Egyptian uprising and the Iraq war, and also covers subjects like art history, maps and oral history. While the site does have a few dead links here and there, the list of links is impressive and it will probably take you months to explore every link. So go check it out, and you’re welcome!
