7. Education: History of York, England
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

York has held a special place in English history, and during the medieval period it was actually the capital of the country for a time. This interactive and well-thought out website explores the history of York, and it was created by the York Museums Trust, with support from the City of York Council.

Visitors to the site's homepage will note that they can use the "Pick of the Day" to learn about the culture and history of the area, and it includes profiles of everything from the ponderous Skeldergate Bridge to the finely crafted silver strap ends fashioned by Anglo Saxons in the area.

The "Timeline" area features an interactive map of York which allows users to move seamlessly between the Viking domination of the area to the current day. Each historical period includes embedded artifacts and a brief narrative history. Persons visiting York will want to take a close look at the "Trails" area as well. Here they can download different trails (such as "Exploring York's Railway Heritage"), and use the guide to take a walk around the area. Visit this site.
