A Works Cited list for Dr. Pitard's Teaching Timelines
First below are links to several other timelines on the web that complement mine. Then I give the list of works I have used to create the timelines for teaching History of the English Language and British literature courses.
There are several excellent British history and culture timelines on the Web.
- The Great Britain and Ireland section of the Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History from the Metropolitan Museum in New York. This is a large set of interconnected timelines of world history linked to works in the Met. It also includes ancillary materials, such as a list of European Rulers.
- The Timeline for Britain from the The Oxford Reference timeline of World History is another set of interconnected timelines. It is utilitarian, but extensive, with links to reference works published by Oxford UP.
- The British Library's Sources from History timeline connects items in the BL collections to moments in British History from 1200 to the present. It provides extensive links to manuscripts, maps, and other historical documents.
- The BBC British History timelines are no longer maintained, but remain available and useful.
Works Cited. These are listed according to the abbreviations used on the Timelines. This is not a list of all sources used, since web-based sources are often linked directly from individual entries, and Works Cited information for a source used once or rarely will appear under the entry.
