Knowing about world history and discerning the major events that happened in the past is fascinating. It is like time-traveling into the years past and witnessing it first-hand. However, it can be terribly hard to go to all the museums scattered around the world and look at the original manuscripts, documents and texts from the yester-years. Google has now launched an excellent initiative to solve this problem for you.


Google Cultural Institute

The web search giant has collaborated with a number of partners, including museums and cultural foundations, to dig up original manuscripts and documents regarding some of the most significant events of the past century. This material has been digitized and is now being presented on Google’s Cultural Institute page.

For instance, you  can find the videos, the speeches, photographs and texts related to Apartheid in these archives. And the best part is that this material is presented in an excellent manner. You can look up the partners who have contributed to this so far, sort the events by year and get a grid view of the content.

Google claims that much of this material is available on the web for the first time. In other words, the website contains exclusive material dug from the archives of the past. Normally, you’d have to visit the multitude of museums and foundations to lay your hands on all this material but here it is, available right at your fingertips, thanks to this new project.

When viewing photos and text scans, you can zoom in to give a closer look to any details and even find content specific to a region or a country. In all, this new project by Google is truly a treasure-trove for anyone who has the slightest interest in world history. Watch the video below to see what you can find on the page and how to navigate through it:
