REVIEW
Students could use this site as a reference for completing homework assignments or research papers. The EMuseum offers exhibits on anthropology, archaeology, biology, cultures, and history. Each exhibit is divided into sub-categories that include such topics of interest as cultural anthropology, rock art, human anatomy, old world cultures, medieval Europe, and more. The information section is also interesting with biographies of anthropologists; information on the oceans, solar system, and world populations; a resource room where teachers can find lesson plans and links to other useful information on the Web; a tutorial for using the Internet; and a visit to Our World Today through Web cams. Additionally, there is a section on pre-history that includes an Ancient Egyptian Culture exhibit. All in all, this site covers a lot of material in an easy to read format.
