I'd like to point out this badass forum, where it concentrates directly on history. You can discuss it here!! btw, it is very new!
It is curious that the Americans, who calculate so carefully on the possibilities of military victory, do not realize that in the process they are incurring deep psychological and political defeat.

For anybody interested in Anglo-Saxon history, this resource is absolutely indispensible:

Prosopography of Anglo-Saxon England Online

If anybody appears in a source, charter, narrative, scrap of poetry or other document from the Anglo-Saxon period of English history, you can bet they'll be in there somewhere, with links to events they're associated with, the people they knew and the offices they held.

T'would be a mammoth task, but something similar for the Later Han/Three Kingdoms period would be a godsend, no? :wink:

Apparently they get their information from Burton Watson's translations of Sima Qian's work, so the information is probably pretty reliable.

Here is another site for discussing any part of history. The subforums are dedicated to various areas of interest from ancient history to modern, intellectual to military, and even religious and ethnicity discussion forums. Its my home on the net now. : )

I have fallen in love with Project Musehttp://muse.jhu.edu JSTOR is nice for journals, but to be honest its annoying to only be able to access it on campus. Although if you are on a college campus, check out JSTOR http://www.jstor.org/ I get most of my journal articles and book reviews for papers and the like here.

http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/Sbook.html is always good for medieval studies, but seeing i do a majority of my work in Asian studies its not much use to me. Still a good link to share for primary and secondary research.
It is important to draw wisdom from many different places. If we take it from only one place, it becomes rigid and stale. Understanding others - other people, other beliefs, and other nations - will help you become whole.
