Website of the Week: Historvius

Historvius – Discover historic sites (Gr. 3-12)

Part search engine, part map, and part reference guide, Historvirus helps you find historically important and sometimes forgotten sites. Search by destination and choose from over 200 possibilities or search by time period and enter a date (4000BC to present day), enter a historic period (70+ to choose from) or enter a historic figure (100+ individuals currently on file). Of course, you can also do a free search by term, site or name.
