3. Sites that are like History Magazines


  • History Extra The official website of BBC History Magazine. Much is free access and well worth a visit for its quizzes, magazine items and brief reviews as well
  • Discovery History Again, lavish productions often TV linked (but does have a good "news" section), vanishing when a series ends.
  • Eyewitness to history History through the eyes of those who lived it, presented by Ibis Communications, Inc. a digital publisher of educational programming. Stylish and good for a browse - even if not comprehensive, key areas covered
  • BBC history Online Enormous. Explore the local BBC subwebs for further depth. It also has links to the BBC schools History pages.
  • HistoryNet US site with a focus on modern wars.
  • History Channel (US) and History Channel (UK) Sites have articles on themes linked to current TV programmes. Well presented but also shortlived, vanishing when the series ends....
Digital history
Interesting site with a focus on how best to use digital technology and (mainly US) history.

History Today A subscription site but each month a few articles and most magazine regulars are provided free of charge. The archive of older (many reeeaccess) articles is also very useful.access) articles is also very useful.

PBS History Well produced "articles", usually linked to recent US TV history series. However, there are many more sites than appear in the general index. Some exploration is needed.....
