For those who love to visit historical lands and nations, the University of Oregon's Historical and Cultural Atlas is a must-see on the Web. Take a journey out to http://mappinghistory.uoregon.edu to explore the ruins of Europe, the temples of Asia, or the natural wonders of Africa. You'll browse through paintings in southern Italy, walk through villages in Spain, and visit a Roman theater in France. For those who prefer to stay closer to home, the Atlas has a timeline of maps that span across the history of North America. And once you're finished visiting churches and military sites, you can relax by shopping along the streets of Pompeii or taking in a sporting event at the Coliseum.
