SUNDAY NIGHT VARIETY
Sacred Space - a very nice daily prayer site run by the Irish Jesuits..
If you found the story of the Batavia interesting, you will also enjoy this site from Perth which focuses on the VOC explorations (that's the Dutch East India Company, I'm not even going to try to spell it in Dutch!) There's also many fine links at the bottom of the page.. and with a little diligence, you can find a picture of the skeletons unearthed from the Batavia massacres..
Outstanding in every way is the Australian National Maritime Museum site.
Joze and Zlata Volaric are two Slovenian artists, sculpting in iron. This site is an outstanding flash presentation of their work. Even if you aren't greatly interested in sculpture, you should visit just for the outstanding website design..
The Black Holocaust - a passionate summary of a long and tragic story..
Islamic Fundamentalism and the Iranian Sex Slave Trade - sobering article by a professor at the University of Rhode Island..you go, girl!
Race and History - Historical Views - great collection of scholarly articles..
And finally, a GREAT GAME!
Nevermind the Japanese writing, and the couple of minutes it takes to load. This is top shelf - I killed an hour, getting to level three. And will go back after I post. Reunite a little girl with her lost head. You'll see. (Brent, you have to try this one!) Challenges your mind, not your reflexes!
