Middle East History in 90 Seconds
I found a great link this morning. Middle East History in 90 seconds. Graphically shows who has conquered the Middle East in the course of 5000 years of history! It shows in a map of the middle east and the incoming and outgoing of each conquering nation. Its really cool. There were several conquerors, between the Babylonians and today, that I had never heard of. For older kids, this is a great place to begin a discussion of the middle east.
