In Little Need of Divine Intervention: Scrolls of the Mongol Invasion of Japan

Multimedia presentation of two scrolls, one formerly believed
to be an accurate copy of the other, depicting the Mongol
Invasion of Japan, a key event in the development in Japanese
self-identity and mythology. These two scrolls, along with
translation and commentary, are placed side by side for the
first time and the discrepancies between them revealed. Scholars
and students will have the opportunity to delve deeply into the
historical importance of each manuscript as well as the
implications of the differences between them. As cultural
artifacts, these scrolls, presented in such detail with new
educational technology give students the opportunity to
explore numerous areas of Japanese history, from warfare and
social structures to mythology and national identity.

I have been looking at your Scrolls for an hour and I am amazed at how easy the site is to use. I will definitely keep this in my collection to use in my classroom. It is a great set-up to compare the scrolls. I like that it is very interactive and student friendly. Thank you for such a great resource!
