Magna Carta

I follow Tom Holland – one of my favorite historians – on Twitter. He always has something interesting to say. In the tweet below, he brought my attention to an essay by David Carpenter in The Guardian:

I enjoyed the essay. More useful for this site, Carpenter references The Magna Carta Project run out of the University of East Anglia. What an incredible teaching tool!

Another exciting site where I can send both my online and my honors students. Truth be told, I will also be able to integrate some of its insights into my traditional lectures. I have enough trouble keeping up with the historical literature in my specialization! This is where Twitter really comes in handy.
