About the Web Links for Cultural Geography

Welcome to the BJU Press Cultural Geography page! Here you will find exercises and links to web sites with activities and information about the pivotal events that shaped world history. We invite you to explore these links to learn even more. Click on the unit links above to begin.

Several general types of sources are given throughout the pages for each unit, containing different information

The official tourism sites generally include information on the history, government, culture, economy, major regions, and specific major tourist destinations of the country (or state) in varying degrees. Photos are a given and some sites have really excellent galleries too. Generally, the official tourist sites (and most embassy sites) will have links to other government websites such as those on statistics or those of each major government ministry/department.

Embassy sites usually give a basic overview of the above-mentioned categories (though sometimes more) and some photos. (They also give much other info. not necessary for the purposes of this course).
The independent travel sites generally major on tourist destinations, pictures, and a sprinkling of culture or history.
