Links to Other Sources

The Internet's greatest rewards are reaped by those who follow the "discovery method" of learning. Almost any quest for information on the web results in deliciously serendipitous rewards--information which was not purposefully sought, but which often yields unexpected treasure.

The following list of "Other Sources" represents the fruits of a cursory search on topics related to Elizabethan England, but it is only a beginning. Any of the links listed here will lead the inquisitive student to an infinite number of unforeseen, but worthy, learning destinations.

Note: These sites were functional as of July, 1998. However, as every Internet user knows, web sites tend to have unpredictable life spans.
