We hope there are scholars in Russia and in America (and elsewhere) who will welcome the opportunity of using the multi-media and hypertext capabilities of the WWW to 'tell the stories' behind the history of Russia and America.


Charles Winslow has begun construction on an American History Server.

The Russian Constitution is available here. The American Constitution is available here. Other constitutions of possible interest are here.

In partnership with the Florida International Museum, The St. Petersburg (Florida) Times presents a virtual museum tour of Treasures of the Czars.

The Treasures of the Czars exhibition is featured at the new Florida International Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida until June 11, 1995.

The History of Vikings in Russia, which was previously an exhibit in Sigtuna, Sweden, was developed by The Control Engineering Laboratory of Chalmers University of Technology in Gotenberg, Sweden. They have developed a wonderful Viking Home Page which should also be explored.
