The British Library's sound maps provides a good way to explore more than 50,000 audio recordings organized into nine categories.

 

Just select a category then click on the placemarks on the maps. The map categories include accents & dialogues, soundscapes, wildlife, and oral histories of holocaust survivors.

 

The British Library's sound maps can be used in a number of content areas. Well worth a listen.
