Historic Resources on the Marshall Islands

Historic Resources on the Marshall Islands - Annotated directory of sites covering the culture and history of the Marshall Islands from pre-colonial times through independence, with a section on nuclear testing.

From the site:

The European history of the Marshall Islands commences in the 1500s, when Spanish galleons sailed through the Marshalls en route from New Spain (Mexico) to the Philippines. Intensive contact between the Marshallese and the Europeans developed from the 1850s onwards. This section contains original source material, listings of ships and people, as well as various papers on aspects of the German, Japanese and US periods.
