Unsolved Codes from throughout the ages..
Duck Dementia - a bizarre, serious looking site from Germany that features great works of art transformed into duck stuff..
Some Nice Flash:
Beatles "Come Together"
Youth of Britain "Chill Out" - featuring the Veitch kitten. On a motorcycle..
Click Walk through Norwegian Cities! (excellent idea and execution)
African Americans in US Military History
Archaeology of the American Arctic
A Silent World - cemetery site, claims to be the world's best. ( Nope, Beth's is better!) Still, particularly enjoyed browsing the epitaphs..
The Culture of Beauty

Sunsets might be a 'dime a dozen' , but these galleries include some of the finest I've seen..
Classic Anatomy Illustrated Texts, Online
Design Your Own Cereal Box! Nice PBS kids site, shows them how advertisers manipulate them..
