Learn Introduction to the middle ages The dark ages? So much of what the average person knows, or thinks they know, about the Middle Ages comes from film and tv. When I polled a group of well-educated friends on Facebook, they told me that the word “medieval” called to mind Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Blackadder, The Sword in the Stone, lusty wenches, feasting, courtly love, the plague, jousting and chain mail. Roman de la Rose, M. 948, fol. 12r, 16th century (Morgan Library and Museum, New York) Perhaps someone who had seen (or better yet read) The Name of the Rose or Pillars of the Earth would add cathedrals, manuscripts, monasteries, feudalism, monks and friars. Internet History Sourcebooks 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. In some cases some websites have simply reorganized sub-directories without creating forwarding links.

How the Pope Might Renew the Church Sacramento — I AM a Catholic, born in 1921 of Italian and Irish families and raised in California seminaries. After decades of work as a priest, I was astonished that Pope Paul VI appointed me a bishop in San Francisco. I love my church, and every night I pray that I might die in her warm, loving arms. Yet I worry about my church’s future. Basic doctrines will not change. Internet History Sourcebooks Internet Modern History Sourcebook The Internet Modern History Sourcebook now contains thousands of sources and the previous index pages were so large that they were crashing many browsers. See Introduction for an explanation of the Sourcebook's goals.

untitled So you’re starting to study for your AP European History exam and you come across your first document-based question (DBQ). You freak out. Don’t worry, that reaction is completely natural.

Genocide in the 20th Century: Bosnia-Herzegovina 1992-95 In the Republic of Bosnia-Herzegovina, conflict between the three main ethnic groups, the Serbs, Croats, and Muslims, resulted in genocide committed by the Serbs against the Muslims in Bosnia. Bosnia is one of several small countries that emerged from the break-up of Yugoslavia, a multicultural country created after World War I by the victorious Western Allies. Yugoslavia was composed of ethnic and religious groups that had been historical rivals, even bitter enemies, including the Serbs (Orthodox Christians), Croats (Catholics) and ethnic Albanians (Muslims). During World War II, Yugoslavia was invaded by Nazi Germany and was partitioned. A fierce resistance movement sprang up led by Josip Tito. Following Germany's defeat, Tito reunified Yugoslavia under the slogan "Brotherhood and Unity," merging together Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, along with two self-governing provinces, Kosovo and Vojvodina.

Animated WW2 Map Europe GERMAN EXPANSION 1933 – The Nazi Party came to power in Germany (the Third Reich forms). Hitler began to rebuild the military in direct violation of the Treaty of Versailles (secretly at first, and in public by 1935 – the Western democracies do nothing). March 1936 – Germans occupied the Rhineland with troops – again violating the Treaty of Versailles and again resulting in no reaction from the Western democracies. March 1938 – Austria was annexed by the Third Reich. Sept 1938 – Munich Agreement. Mapping Medieval Swansea Gareth Dean and Keith Lilley In mapping the landscape of medieval Swansea the project has created a detailed map showing the town as it was in around 1300, shortly before the time of Cragh’s hanging. The means by which this map of medieval Swansea was made draws upon a long history of using maps to reveal the histories of places. It is a technique that involves using historic maps, along with written and archaeological sources, as a basis to reconstruct a town’s medieval layout and urban features. Here we describe what this process of map-making involved, partly by way of explanation of how the project’s digital mapping was derived, but also to offer others the scope of repeating these approaches to undertake similar work elsewhere, for other historic towns and cities.
