HOT TIP: these words make great keywords to search for on the internet. For example, try clothes "middle ages" in a google search.

When searching google, if you put double speech marks " " around your search term, google will search for it as a phrase.  Very handy if you're looking for something in particular and you know the words will be in that order.

There's a lot of good information on the EPIC databases about history, particularly the World History in Context database.

HOT TIP: To get to the EPIC databases you will need a password from your school librarian first. Or, you can log on to between 1 and 6pm Monday to Friday, and one of the librarians can help you online.

Some EPIC databases may also be available through your public library.
