Beam Me Back to the Stone Age, Scotty Issue Date: 12-29-1996

Cool Spots imageWith a click of the mouse, you can send yourself to http://museums.ncl.ac.uk/flint/menu.html and head back to the Stone Age. Take the timeline link and read a scroll of Stone Age accomplishments to find how far back in history you've gone. Then imagine a time when large ice sheets covered the land and the sea. In order to survive, you had to hunt for game and gather fruits and berries along with the herds of animals your tribe followed. Do you think you would make a good gatherer of food? Which berries or mushrooms taste good and are nutritious? Beware, some of them are not safe to eat. Staying alive takes more wit than simply digging through the refrigerator for a snack. This site clubs the myth that Stone Age people were the dim-witted, hairy brutes we have been lead to believe.

The War of Independence Issue Date: 06-30-1996

Cool Spots imageFrom the Boston Tea Party to the crossing of the Potomac, the War of Independence is a chapter in America's history we remember each 4th of July. Now is a good time to download the entire text of the Declaration of Independence and think about the struggle that followed. Browse through battle strategy maps or sit in on a meeting with a young George Washington. You might even give George III a piece of your mind. Was the War of Independence a good idea? If so, why? Why did the patriots throw tea into the Boston Harbor and not British soldiers? Whether you're a patriot or loyalist, be sure to march out to the front lines at http://odur.let.rug.nl/~usa. Don't forget to bring along your fife and drum.
