From Newfoundland’s L’Anse aux Meadows to the ancient city of Jerusalem, every place has a past worth researching. Taking examples from Normandy’s Omaha Beach, ancient England, Wounded Knee, and other places, this engaging book teaches about history and historical methods simultaneously. It demonstrates how researchers learned about these sites and how those lessons can be applied to readers’ own investigations. Interspersed among the accounts of famous sites are the sections “Your Community” and “Your Park,” which give detailed suggestions for looking into the history of local places, such as questions to ask and where to find documents. Maps and photographs of the manifold locations will excite interest, and color-coded text boxes add detailed information about the chosen locations. The back matter includes time lines, a glossary, additional reading, further research ideas, and an index.
