Internet History Sourcebooks Project Internet History Sourcebooks Project Paul Halsall, Editor The Internet History Sourcebooks Project is a collection of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented cleanly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. As a result there is a process called "link rot" - which means that a "broken link" is a result of someone having taken down a web page. Feedback and Help While I encourage notes, comments and feedback in general, I am unable to reply to all of them. I am unable to help locate details about your family, or give translations of your name or nickname into Chinese (a very common request)!

Hazor • WebBible Encyclopedia • ChristianAnswers.Net The most well-known city of Hazor is near Lake Merom, where it was strategically located on ancient trade routes from the north, east and west.

It is now the largest archaeological site in Israel. “A stronghold of the Canaanites in the mountains north of Lake Merom (Josh. 11:1-5). Why Dig Hazor? “Joshua turned back at that time and took Hazor, and struck its king with the sword; for Hazor was formerly the head of all those kingdoms. The first Israeli excavator of Hazor, Yigel Yadin, and the present excavator, Amnon Ben-Tor, believe the burn level of the Late Bronze II period is evidence of Joshuas destruction. Yadin excavated a very impressive six-chambered gate dating to the 10th century BC and built by King Solomon. In the mid-8th century BC an extraordinary earthquake hit the Middle East.

skull (anatomy) -- Britannica Online Encyclopedia skull, skeletal framework of the head of vertebrates, composed of bones or cartilage, which form a unit that protects the brain and some sense organs. The upper jaw, but not the lower, is part of the skull. The human cranium, the part that contains the brain, is globular and relatively large in comparison with the face.

With a leaning toward the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of materials which truly celebrates the breadth and variety of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it. Some of our most popular posts include visions of the future from late 19th century France, a dictionary of Victorian slang and a film showing the very talented “hand-farting” farmer of Michigan. With each post including links back to the original source we encourage you to explore these wonderful online sources for yourself. Check out our Sources page to see where we find the content.
