The first site this month is called Past Civilizations. This site is fairly attractive and it is well organized. Past Civilizations doesnt offer a huge variety of information; however it offers many pictures and the section that I am quite fond of, the article section. There are many, many articles listed with such titles as Tombs from the Dawn of History, Egyptian Wigs and Hairpieces, and Chariot Making. This site is tastefully done and incorporates pictures with good and interesting information. The only thing I wish were different would be that I wish the site used the full screen instead of just the band in the middle. Despite that this is a good site and is worth a visit.
Ancient Egyptian Virtual Temple is the next site to be discussed this month. This is a well put together site. There is a very wide variety of information as well as pictures offered on this site. The pictures and images on this site are very good, and there is one that impressed me quite a bit. Under the heading Culture and Daily Life, there is another topic listed titled An Ancient Noblemans Villa. On this page there is a wonderful illustration of a noblemans villa with the roof gone so you can see in. Other topics range from Egyptian Medicine to Music and Dance and to Literature and Wisdom Texts. This site is organized well with a menu on the left side and the information presented is easy to read. The only problem I have is that some of the pages are not working. There are however very many still up and running and they are worth a look.
Ancient Egyptian Pottery is the last site this month. This is an attractive site about, of course, Egyptian pottery. It provides information such as history, types of Egyptian pottery and artwork of Egyptian pottery. There are a few nice illustrations along with the text on this site. This site is organized and very easy to read; both in the sense that it has a nice background color and large, easy to read print, and in the sense that the information is worded well and is easy to understand. There is a menu on the left hand side and also at the bottom of each page which makes it very easy to get around the site.
