Sketches of a History of Classical Electromagnetism (Optics, Magnetism, Electricity, Electromagnetism)

Students and educators wishing to take a break from the lab and hit the history books should venture to this Website featuring a timeline of events in the world of electromagnetism. The site comes from the "Hyperjeff" network, the elaborate project of Jeff Biggus, a history of science (especially physics) buff. Well-organized and chock-full of links, Biggus's electromagnetism history timeline ranges from 300 BC to 1907. Visitors can read about the first compass (Chinese), the first written record of magnets (the Romans), and more. Sources, Links, and notes help make this timeline extra credible and informative.
