This is pretty awesome. Though yeah, "antiquity" starts a bit late as far as traditional Art History texts are concerned. Every course I've ever taken has started with the Venus of Willendorf and the Caves of Lascaux, so it's not exactly arcane to go back a few thousand more years.

Huh. I just found out that I can't read sideways on a computer screen. (Leastways not after 12 hours of mixing.)

This is cool. I want one for music history.

These are two of the best websites I have ever seen.

Thank you.
