Documents in Medieval Military History: Hillsdale College: Not very comprehensive, but a good list of primary source material on a pretty unique topic.

Medieval History of the Middle East: Cornell University: A nice compilation of reference sites and primary source titles on Medieval Islam, a time which was perhaps the height of the Empire's power.

Dresden: Treasures from the Saxon State Library: A beautiful site from the Library of Congress. The city of Dresden was devestated by Allied bombing in 1945. With it came the destruction of so much of what was considered to be the most ornate city in Germany. A sampling of this beauty is delivered through digitized images and accompanying text.

Byzantine Studies Page: Fordham University: The Byzantine Empire is perhaps one of the more understudied in World History. Does it matter that it was the center of Eastern Christian thought for hundreds of years or that it stood as the gatekeeper to European/Asia civilizations for the same period of time? This is a good site, comprised of what few items exist on Byzantium on the Web.

New York University: Medieval Technology Pages: A totally fun site on specific technologies from the period. From the subject guide you'll find ample historical narrative on each item. Images would have been nice, but the timeline does make up for a lot.

Secrets of Lost Empires: Medieval Siege: NOVA: A totally fun site on specific technologies from the period. From the subject guide you'll find ample historical narrative on each item. Images would have been nice, but the timeline does make up for a lot.

Internet Medieval Sourcebook: Fordham University: Halsall's best page. A full-text juggernaut, not to mention maps, images, secondary source material. Albeit academic in nature, still a great place for serfs to surf.

The Labyrinth: Georgetown University: A top-rate reference tool. Select the subject and the material-type you'd through the Labyrinth index, then just sit back and wait for an annotated list of Web resources. The index is a bit confusing so read directions thoroughly.

Medieval & World History Lectures: University of Kansas: A super reference site. User will be taken through a highly organized and chronological list of lectures on the development of the Medieval world.

Virtual Library History Index Medieval Europe: Michigan State University: A nice site covering a wide range of Medieval topics from manor life to literature. Also look here for full-text of Medieval literature, i.e. Beowulf and Chaucer.

Argos: Limited Area Search of the Ancient and Medieval Internet: Evansville University: I'll let them tell you: "Argos is the first peer-reviewed, limited area search engine (LASE) on the World-Wide Web. It has been designed to cover the ancient and medieval worlds. Quality is controlled by a system of hyperlinked internet indices which are managed by qualified professionals who serve as the Associate Editors of the project. The same procedures that govern quality also serve to limit the scope of Argos to the ancient world."

NetSerf: Internet Connection for Medieval Resources: Great reference site, providing reputable links on all sorts of topics. Links are annotated with site description, number of hits, revision dates, and most recent clicks. Serf's up, my liege!

BUBL Information Service (UK): Medieval History: There is certainly no escaping the BUBL. A nice index with a predominant English slant.

Medieval History: University of Washington: A nice little site. The links to "Literary Works" are worth a look: King Arthur, Decameron, Robn Hood, and even Dante are all covered. Also, consult the manuscripts section for you'll find a wealth of digitized images.

Medieval History: Providence College: A simple reference site--kinda like the one you're on--with some good links (I hope like the one you're on).

Online Reference Book for Medieval Studies: Rhodes College: As a Web site "ORB is an academic site, written and maintained by medieval scholars for the benefit of their fellow instructors and serious students. All articles have been judged by at least two peer reviewers. Authors are held to high standards of accuracy, currency, and relevance to the field of medieval studies."

Online Medieval & Classical Library: University of California, Berkeley: If you're looking for full-text primary source materials from the period, you've hit the motherlode. "Song of Roland," anyone?
