Learning History of the World

Thanks to Richard Byrne for writing about this amazing resource
The BBC and the British Museum have partnered to create an excellent interactive timeline called A History of the World. A History of the World presents images of artifacts from various eras in world history. The objects are displayed in rings arranged to match each era. Click on any object in the ring to see a larger image and to read about the significance of each artifact. You can browse the collection by clicking through the rings of images or you can browse by location, by historical theme, or by dates.
