Digital Resources: Early Modern British/European Economic History

For nearly two decades, Gerard Koot, professor of history at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (emeritus since 2010), taught NEH Summer Seminars--first on the Industrial Revolution in Britain, and, more recently, on "The Dutch Republic and Britain: The Making of a European World Economy." In the course of those efforts, Koot compiled websites for the projects that contain a wealth of useful materials. The sites include essays by Koot on specific topics, illustrations, bibliographies, and links to primary sources. Also included are students' papers for all the years of the Seminar.
    Because these NEH summer seminars are directed at K-12 teachers, most of the materials are designed to be useful for teaching.
