Teaching A Level History using British History Online

256px-Cardinal_Wolsey_Christ_Church

This post was kindly written for us by Alex Porter – Head of History, Parmiter’s School The paradox of teaching A Level history is that you know very well your students’ education would be better served by studying topics in greater depth but unfortunately this has the potential to hamper their achievements in examination. Nowhere is this more apparent than in textbooks. An A Level textbook can be a comfort but the range of sources […]

The ePADD Team on Processing and Accessing Email Archives

richard-fikes-email-archive-example-1024x912

As archives increasingly process born-digital collections one thing is clear; processing digital collections often involves working with tons of email. There is already some great work exploring how to deal with email, but given that it is such a significant problem area it is great to see work focused on developing tools to make sense of this material. Of particular concern is how email is simultaneously so ubiquitous and so messy.  I’ve heard cases of […]

(So this is my go at GIF-ing round #2. I put it up on the Open Access Antiquarianism page too, but thought I’d double post it here. More soon. x) Scientific diagnostics can tell us a lot about the world around us. But they’re far more powerful and appealing when they’re visualized appropriately. For every exciting x-ray, infrared, or ultraviolet image that tells art historians and architects about what lies beneath the image or wall […]

Autumn Inspired Art

8

The second month of Autumn, it’s starting to get cold and wet. Trees loose their green colour and eventually let go of their leaves. Autumn is a season people love or loathe. Many painters have been inspired by this season, a season that starts filled with a wide range of warm colours and gradually introduces us to the cold and grey winter. We searched Europeana for some beautiful artworks inspired by Autumn, and highlighted them […]

Flight 20141019 – The Via Nova Traiana in Central Jordan

Rujm%2Bel-Faridiyyeh%2BAPAAME_20141019_DLK-180

The great Roman highway ran from Syria down the length of the Emperor Trajan’s new province of Arabia to Aila (Aqaba) on the Red Sea. Nineteenth century western travellers and explorers ‘east of Jordan’ regularly reported following it for mile after mile and noting many of the hundreds of milestones still to be seen.
