Created by EdTechTeacher Inc, this portal contains a vast collection of history websites. A little cumbersome to search (but well-worth the effort!), it contains lists and lists of sites pertaining to European History, Renaissance, Middle Ages, Medieval, Ancient Greece, Rome, and so very much more.
Below, are two sections we separated from the portal for your ease in searching specific areas:
