Some great Africa and (heavily) South Africa teaching and research tools:
Africa Through a Lens – ”A collection of thousands of UK Colonial Office images of Africa. The images are as rich and varied as the continent itself, charting more than 100 years of African history from the 1860s through to the 1960s.”
Button from the African Activist Archive Project
Digital Innovation South Africa (DISA) – Sometimes slow, but worth the wait!
Digital Karnak – The colossal site of Karnak is one of the largest temple complexes in the world, with an incredibly rich architectural, ritual, religious, economic, social and political history. The Amun-Ra precinct, which includes an astonishing number of individual temples, shrines and processional ways, stands as a micro-cosmos of ancient Egypt.
