TimeSearch by Bamber Gascoigne

The item on the BBC's Start the Week' by Bamber Gascoigne on the history site he has created called TimeSearch sparked my interest TimeSearch is a history search portal, using event stubs to provide links onwards to a wide range of sites - from general news sites, Wikipedia and Google images to specialist on-line resources. Events can be selected using two hierarchical category systems, location and them as well as year. I confess I had some trouble deselecting categories once selected.

This is the latest form of delivery of the extensive material Bamber has created and put on line in:
One wonders how this authored material compares with the collaborative Wikipedia. It is certainly an impressive and rich resource.
