4 Very Interesting Sites For Learning History
Personally, I never had much use for history in school. But now that information is easily available on the web, I find myself searching for historical information. Could it be that the web made history cool again with simple text and multimedia? I guess so; and you might feel the same as these four interesting websites take you back in time.
If you follow the TV channel, you’ll love History.com. It’s not just about schedules, but also videos that give insight into the shows. The site has a great selection of history topics with supporting videos and audios. When you need a break from learning, check out the Games section for historical trivia. One of my favorite sections is “This Day in History” as it quickly introduces something new and connects our present with the past.
Filmstory.org is a gem nestled among IMdB and Rotten Tomatoes. It’s a film site that combines entertainment with history. The epic film by James Cameron about the Titanic tragedy allowed half the world to understand it. Filmstory is an interactive resource that explores the connection between film and history.
You can explore history and films by era, region, subject, and film type. Films often touch on various themes, making them useful for studying history.
British Pathé is one of the oldest media companies in the world, resulting in a large archival wealth of newsreels captured from 1902. The newsreels, now digitized and available on the site, cover every major event of the past century. Their collection consists of 3500 hours of filmed history, comprising over 90,000 individual items. Professional usage requires a license fee, but the site offers free “preview” facilities for learning about 20th-century history.

Time Search History is a search engine for history that utilizes timelines. With over 10,000 indexed events, it allows users to search for historical events by keyword, location, and time period.
