Making Sense of Documentary Photography provides a place for students and teachers to grapple with the documentary images that often illustrate textbooks but are almost never considered as historical evidence in their own right. Written by James Curtis, this guide offers a brief history of documentary photography, examples of what questions to ask when examining a documentary photograph, and an annotated bibliography and list of online resources for documentary photography.

Hitler as a Spider: 10 Propaganda Maps That Personify 20th Century Conflicts. A new exhibition showcases historic maps that summarized international conflict by depicting different world powers as people and animals.
War Map, an exhibit at London’s Map House, explores the satirical ways propagandists and mapmakers have sought to explain international conflicts in the 20th century, from making Hitler into a spider to showing Winston Churchill and Franklin Delano Roosevelt playing tug-of-war with Africa. The maps (which we spotted from The Economist’s 1843 magazine) will be on display in London until November 18, and an accompanying coffee table book is available now.

Interpreting a visual source, like a photograph, is very different to interpreting words on a page, which is the case with written sources.
Therefore, you need to develop a different set of skills. Photographs are very useful types of primary sources.

Use of Propaganda in WWI Postcards – Europeana Blog. Millions of postcards circulated during the First World War and influenced public opinion.
It is not surprising that something as ordinary as a postcard was used by governments on all sides to either defend their own actions, to discredit the enemy and to rouse the masses to support their nation. Within just three days of the declaration of war on 1 August 1914, publishers had war-themed postcards on sale. Their powerful images had an unprecedented impact on the masses: The postcard became a weapon of propaganda. During WWI, propaganda became, for the first time, the responsibility of government agencies like the Ministry of Information in Great Britain. Postcards were cheap to produce, cheap to buy and cheap to send. World War I propaganda postcards can be divided into two categories: 1. Home. Houses of Parliament. Digital Public Library of America.

Guide to the classics: Homer’s Iliad - History of the Ancient World. By Chris Mackie Homer’s Iliad is usually thought of as the first work of European literature, and many would say, the greatest.

These Photos of Pompeii Show Slice of Ancient Roman Life that Was Buried Under 20 Feet of Ash - History Daily. Sep 172016 On August 24, 79 AD, Mount Vesuvius, a 4,000-foot volcano near the Bay of Naples in Italy, erupted, burrying the city of Pompeii under an almost 20-foot blanket of volcanic ash and killing 2,000 people. It was one of the world’s most famous and deadly volcanic eruptions. The ancient Roman city was left untouched until explorers rediscovered it in 1748, finding that Pompeii was virtually intact underneath the dust and dirt.
As a resort for Rome’s rich, elegant villas lined wide, paved streets. Some of these villas have been restored and are open to visitors, like the Casa del Fauno and Casa del Menandro. Pompeii was a bustling city with cafés, snack bars (the Thermopolium), and restaurants (Caupona Pherusa tavern), and even a 20,000-seat amphitheater.
Approximately 2.5 million tourists visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site every year. Pompeii had a complex water system and port, and two bath houses. The volcanic eruption lasted 18 hours.

The Educated Teacher. Last year my co-teacher and I were a little crunched for time when teaching the interwar years in Europe. We wanted to get across the economic and social problems that Europeans faced and how it influenced the choices they made, so I designed these learning stations to allow students to use primary and secondary sources to discover these facts for themselves.
We set up the classroom with the documents (printed from the PowerPoint, attached below) for each station taped to the walls around the room in clusters. Students worked with a partner to complete the questions on their worksheet (included below). Creative Warm-Up: the Industrial Revolution. After a few days of studying the Industrial Revolution, I gave students a warm-up activity to get them using primary sources creatively and putting themselves into that time period. In this activity, students were given a sheet containing two primary sources. There were several different sheets, and students could trade with their neighbors if they didn’t like the one they received. EyeWitness to History - history through the eyes of those who lived it.
