A Dynamic Cross-Disciplinary Database Supporting Research in American History and Literature

Students and researchers can discover details about past eras that make historical accounts relevant and meaningful from their modern-day perspectives. What did people eat, wear, or use? What did they hope for, laugh about, or sing? These are the kinds of questions inquisitive students of history ask.

A truly unique landmark reference product, Daily Life through History explores ordinary life through time and across the globe, bringing the past to life through details and insights that turn flat descriptions of historical characters into real, “just like me” human beings.

Available in both academic and school versions, this database supports courses in American history and literature, ties closely to national curricula and standards, and is an outstanding, cross-disciplinary resource for examining historical topics such as food and cooking, celebrations, clothes, romance, work, religion, housing, language, and social customs.
