A Visual Sourcebook of Chinese Civilization
"The goal of this 'visual sourcebook' is to add to the material teachers can use to help their students understand Chinese history, culture, and society." Features a timeline with links to information and images, and essays on topics such as ancient tombs, Buddhism, clothing, and gardens. Includes maps, discussion questions, and bibliographies. From the University of Washington.
It is generally easiest to navigate this site from Contents or the Timeline, but there may be times when it is useful to consult a list of the main pages, which is given here. This list does not include the hundreds of pages that give source citations, nor the pages that extend the text by giving answers, thoughts, further comments, or enlarged details. It also does not list the separate pages of the Teachers' Guide or the Timeline and Maps.
