Re: Primary Sources on the Web

Hi, Katherine 5/22/2015

Please don't forget artifacts as primary sources.

The Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian (NMAI) is an obvious starting point: " one of the most extensive collections of Native American arts and artifacts in the world—approximately 266,000 catalog records (825,000 items) representing over 12,000 years of history and more than 1,200 indigenous cultures throughout the Americas." http://nmai.si.edu/explore/collections/

NEW EXHIBITION NOW OPEN IN MULLICA HILL

The Harrison Township Historical Society’s new exhibition, “Eyewitnesses,” gives objects from the Museum’s rich collections a voice to tell their stories.  Through an on-line, interactive audio soundtrack sixteen artifacts lead visitors through an entertaining exploration of the past, from 70 million years ago to the 21st century.
