ANCIENT HISTORY AND CULTURES



The Roman Army

Roman Emperors

PBS Site on the Ancient Greeks - well done, as usual..

Sparta Revisited .... most of us have a 'one dimensional' view of Sparta, from high school classes in which a few sentences on Spartan militarism preceded lengthy accolades about Athenian culture and democracy..this site might change that!

Ancient Egyptian Mathematics

The Phoenicians - another great site, by someone who feels the Phoenecians have received a lot of bad press the past few thousand years..

Cyrus the Great - devoted to this Persian Emperor..

Ancient Mesopotamia

Nubian History

And, though this brief survey doesn't really 'go there' , civilization was also happening in China. Take a look at these art treasures..

VARIED

Yiddish Culture and Links

Jewish Song Database

Kosher Food - delivered to your door! This is a New Jersey 'deli' but it features mouth watering pictures of some of my favorite foods growing up (..hey, I was an Irish Catholic kid, but I knew good eating..) . Also a nice page of Yiddish expressions..

Online Film clips with Northern New England themes..

History of Dutch Comics ; and of course also available in Dutch..

A very nice site by Monks ; at least they had the sense to build their monastary in Florida..

'When a true genius appears in the world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.'
Jonathan Swift
