Digital History of the Wars of Dutch Independence

From Bob Tiegs’ site: The goal of these digital history projects is to provide a holistic account of the military inundations during the Dutch Wars of Independence.  Each project explores the floods from a different perspective.  The brief history offers an overview of the major events of the wars of independence and how the strategic floods fit into the rebel strategy.  The interactive map provides a visual account of the cities, villages, and locations which were affected by the inundations, which can be sorted according to natural vs military floods or according to specific sieges.  Once finished, the third project, living through the inundations will provide first-hand accounts of the motivations behind the inundations, and how they affected individuals.
