The Internet History Sourcebooks Project is a collection of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented cleanly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. The main sourcebooks cover ancient, medieval, and modern history. Subsidiary sourcebooks cover African, East Asian, Global, Indian, Islamic, Jewish, Lesbian and Gay, Science, and Women's history.

A very useful site; it's amazing it hasn't been posted before. (My own gripe is that its coverage of prerevolutionary Russian history is almost nonexistent, but no one site can do everything.)

What a neat site. Medieval NYC caught my eye and is a special treat; wonderful idea, nicely executed.

One of the Internet History Sourcebooks is mentioned in this FPP on Greek temple architecture from 2003 (!), but it well deserves an FPP of its own. Thanks for sharing!

I love this site, my only complaint being that there is some pretty serious link-rot in places. It's a great resource to direct students to when discussing primary sources.

This is great, and bizarrely my mom showed it to me just yesterday.
