Comment: This site provides an excellent tool for teaching students about the work of historians. Especially interesting is the inclusion of the actual diary pages that students get to decipher. The historical toolkit also is useful in providing a step-by-step overview of historical interpretation.

Technical Remarks:

Navigating the site is a bit of a challenge. Attempts to view the film clips also presented some techical difficulties.
