About Me
I am passionate about Technology, Education, and Ancient History. As Director of Information Technology at the College of Education at the University of Oregon, I am constantly exploring ways to use technology to enhance the learning environment and am particularly ecstatic when I can develop a technology to advance the study of ancient history.

I actually maintain nine blogs with history themes:

Roman Times (
Roman Archaeology (
Ancient Games (Games, movies, and entertainment products featuring ancient world themes)(
Ancient Books and Novels (Fiction and non-fiction books and novels featuring ancient world themes) (
Academic Presentations on the Roman Empire (
Roman Scholars (short bios of scholars specializing in Roman research) (
Passionate About History (Articles I have found or write about non-Roman history subjects) (
History's Medical Mysteries (PDFs of medical evaluations of historical figures conducted at an annual meeting of forensic pathologists)(
Historical Dolls News and Acquisitions (

I also developed and maintain a website for historical figures artist George S. Stuart ( Pro based with PHP)

I also discuss my "incredible" journeys that I take to digitally capture art and history at:

As a technologist I also write about products I try out or have used to produce my plethora of educational materials or my special projects like online graphic novel creation program ( - Filemaker Pro based), my comparative Timeline solution (again Filemaker Pro based), my artifical intelligence agents and machineama software used to create historical rercreations such as iClone 2.0 and Crazy Talk created by Reallusion. My "Technology Times and Trials blog can be found at:

If you go to my Roman Times ( blog and scroll all the way down you will also see links to online crossword puzzles and matching games about the Roman world that I created with HotPotatoes software, a virtual archaeology game that I created using javascript to let visitors dig through virtual sand and uncover artifacts and try to guess the secret word that will let them into the next burial chamber, and a page I created called Fun With the Ancient World that includes online jigsaw puzzles and links to other sites on the web with javascipt-based drag and drop virtual figures that kids can dress with each piece of their historical costume.

Those images were excellent, Mary! Thank you so much. That's exactly the type of thing I want to be able to share through the group. Too many history educators remain unaware of the amazing opportunities the net has opened up to us, with the availability of primary sources, tertiary education podcasts and high-quality PowerPoints and resources. It's through openness and a willingness to share that all teachers and students will be able to benefit and the rising tide will life all ships. Thank you!

I host a group on diigo (it’s similar to delicious and very popular with teachers) for history teachers to share links, ideas and resources. It’s at
Please come along and join and share any sources or resources you use with the rest of us. See you there.
