Today's five-star site: Avalon Project.
Yale Law Schools Avalon Project
publishes on the Web historical documents from the fields of law,
economics, politics, diplomacy and government. Materials span ancient
Greece to contemporary times, and include such pre-Eighteenth Century
documents as the Athenian Constitution by Aristotle, the Code of
Hammurabi and the Magna Carta. Documents are organized by century, as
well as by author, subject and title. Documents are also grouped into
major thematic collections, such as American Diplomacy: Multilateral
Treaties 1864-1999, and Nuremberg War Crimes Trial. The entire site
can be searched using keywords. The projects scope is wide-ranging and
ambitious. The directors of the site say they intend not merely to post
these documents but also to add value by linking to supporting
documents referred to in the body of the text.
