There are so many more ways to study history than looking at simply military, nation-state analysis. This site addresses other tools historians use to investigate world history, such as the frameworks of geography and chronology. A geographical area can be used to explore commonalities across political borders to discover the effect of trade, disease, and migration. Included in this unit are readings, resources, maps, audio clips, a video to watch, as well as a transcript of the video. Pertinent questions and activities are also provided. http://www.learner.org/courses/worldhistory/unit_main_1.html
