|Archaeology at Catal Huyuk
One of the world's coolest archaeological sites.
The Smithsonian Institution
One of the wonders of the world--great site, too.
Each of the component museums also has its own main page; here is the Museum of Natural History.
And a nifty page, with animation, for the recent Viking exhibit.
The Library of Congress
One of our favorite places.
And their "Today in History" feature:
Our idea of the place for an island vacation.
The Stone Circle Webring
Caveat lector: some of these sites are New Age twaddle.
(The place to find information on evolution and arguments against creationism.)
The Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal
And a story from their site on Multiple Personality Disorder:
A wonderful medieval manuscript
Fabulous archaeology: the 1607 fort at Jamestown, Virginia.
And, as a bonus, the site of John Bedell's first archaeological excavation-- the Bacon's Castle garden.
UNESCO's World Heritage Sites
And, from that site, the pilgrimage routes to Compostella
The Levi Jordan Plantation
A fascinating archaeological site and a model of how to involve the public in investigating the past.
Gunfight at the OK Corral
The gunfight from the point of view of the Clanton family's own historian; part of a large site devoted to the history of Tombstone and the Clantons.
Web site of our friend Katya, fantasy novelist and author of a bensozia essay (in Thoughts) about motherhood.
The La Brea Tar Pits
Housing the world's most amazing collection of Plesitocene mammal fossils and a web site my 8-year-son actually thanked me for showing him.
