Gift of the Indus: The Arts and Culture of Pakistan, presented by ARTSEDGE,
the Kennedy Center's arts education network, introduces the arts and culture
of Pakistan to young people and teenagers in the US, Pakistan, and all over
the world, in the hope of fostering greater understanding. The site has
three broad sections: The Nation, with information about the people and the
land; Culture & Daily Life; and Arts of Pakistan, the most extensive
section, encompassing music, theater, dance, and the visual arts. Video is
used extensively on the site; allowing visitors to watch both folk and
classical dance, see masters and students creating Arabic calligraphy, or
sculptors working with wood, glass, and metal.

A few years back, a team of intrepid paleontologists came across the bones
of a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex in South Dakota. The dinosaur became known as
"Sue", and visitors to the Field Museum in Chicago have flocked to see her
remains for the past seven years. This website, created by the Field Museum,
allows visitors to learn about the other species roaming around South Dakota
at the same time as Sue, some sixty-seven million years ago. Using this
interactive exhibit, visitors can explore the dig site where Sue was
discovered, and learn about some of her contemporaries, such as the
Thescelosaurus and Hadrosaur, both ornithopods (bird-footed) dinosaurs.
Overall, the site is a great way to learn about the very interesting world
in which Sue lived, and it is also a visually stimulating and engaging
experience. [KMG]

Enjoy,
