John Ward's curator insight, January 18, 2014 3:38 AM

Included in the following list are links to digital project dealing with geography and the ancient world. It is an eclectic list, culled mostly from entries in AWOL. It has no pretentions of being complete or comprehensive, but is offered to give readers a sense of the range of materials currently accessible. I have (for the most part) not included the scores of atlases, maps and other orginallypaper-based geographical resources which are accessible online in facsimile.

Anhony DeSimone's curator insight, December 19, 2013 9:34 AM

This article is interesting because it talks about considering bridges as landforms. Although bridges are not natural landforms they are indeed man made landforms. The appreciation for bridges come from the means that they provide as well as their beautiful structure. The bridges a lone form their design allow people to connect and interact with one another so bridges are also viewed as a tool for connect people as well.

Jason Schneider's curator insight, January 29, 2015 12:42 AM

It's really interesting that the Brooklyn Bridge is number 1. Being a former New-Yorker myself, I am fascinated by the old-fashioned looking structure of the Brooklyn Bridge. This bridge has a cable wire web-looking pattern that helps hold the bridge together and before the 1950s and it use to be useful for trains and streetcars. Now, it not only looks great but it's very useful because it allows six lanes of cars, a walkway for pedestrians and a couple of bike lanes for bikers. All of them make their way from Brooklyn to New York City and back.
This is a photo I took of the Brooklyn bridge towards Manhattan.
