Herodotus Timemap Book 1, Ch. 1 This is the display of the inquiry of Herodotus of Halicarnassus, so that things done by man not be forgotten in time, and that great and marvelous deeds, some displayed by the Hellenes, some by the barbarians, not lose their glory, including among others what was the cause of their waging war on each other.The Persian learned men say that the Phoenicians were the cause of the dispute. These (they say) came to our seas from the sea which is called Red, and having settled in the country which they still occupy, at once began to make long voyages. Among other places to which they carried Egyptian and Assyrian merchandise, they came to Argos,which was at that time preeminent in every way among the people of what is now called Hellas. history and geography of europe: euratlas.net Historical Maps Euratlas Periodis Historical Atlas of Europe History of Europe

tabula peutingeriana Tabula Peutingeriana (section)—top to bottom: Dalmatian coast, Adriatic Sea, southern Italy, Sicily, African Mediterranean coast The Tabula Peutingeriana (Peutinger table, Peutinger Map) is an illustrated itinerarium (in effect, a road map) showing the cursus publicus, the road network in the Roman Empire. The original map (of which this is a unique copy) was last revised in the fourth or early fifth century.[1] It covers Europe, North Africa and parts of Asia (the Middle East, Persia, India). The map is named after Konrad Peutinger, a German 15–16th-century humanist and antiquarian. The tabula is thought to date from the fifth century.[2] It shows the city of Constantinople, founded in 328, yet it still shows Pompeii, not rebuilt after the eruption of Vesuvius in 79. The prominence of Ravenna, seat of the Western Empire from 402, suggested a fifth-century revision to Levi and Levi.

Education Plans Here at Kodable HQ, we enjoy the occasional complexities in life, but we mostly prefer to keep things simple. Sound familiar? After a year of talking with teachers using Kodable in their classrooms, we discovered that we needed to rework our approach to coding education, and fashion a programming curriculum that is equally as beneficial for students, but easier for teachers to manage. Well, we ran back to the lab, performed some tests, and created plans to meet the needs of educators using Kodable! Kodable Education Plans are available in every version of Kodable, and provide teachers with the proper tools to better serve their students and adequately manage programming curriculums in their school. We have created plans to help you use Kodable with your students at your comfort level: Free Kodable Teacher, Kodable Class, and Kodable School.

DMMapp - Digitized Medieval Manuscripts App The DMMapp (Digitized Medieval Manuscripts App) links to more than 400 libraries in the world. Each one of these contains medieval manuscripts that can be browsed for free. The DMMapp is developed by the Sexy Codicology Team; it is part of the Digitized Medieval Manuscripts Maps (DMMmaps) project. Vidcode: A Coding App Created with Girls in Mind by Alexandra Diracles & Melissa Halfon A Coding App Created with Girls in Mind We’ve introduced and tested Vidcode across the country and one thing is clear: girls love it. When girls code effects for their videos with Vidcode, they’re excited to see that they, too, can be computer programmers. It opens up a whole world of possibilities for them in creative technology. About this Collection - Civil War Maps Brings together materials from three premier collections: the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division, the Virginia Historical Society, and the Library of Virginia. Among the reconnaissance, sketch, and theater-of-war maps are the detailed battle maps made by Major Jedediah Hotchkiss for Generals Lee and Jackson, General Sherman's Southern military campaigns, and maps taken from diaries, scrapbooks, and manuscripts all available for the first time in one place. Most of the items presented here are documented in Civil War Maps: An Annotated List of Maps and Atlases in the Library of Congress, compiled by Richard W. Stephenson in 1989. New selections from 2,240 maps and 76 atlases held by the Library will be added monthly.

awmc - ancient world mapping center Keeping abreast of the ever-expanding set of resources relevant to the geography and mapping of the ancient world is a Herculean task and this page does not attempt to do that, rather it aims to provide a basic set of initial references for the community.
