Taking on a subject as vast as the Ottomans and their empire is a formidable task, but that is exactly what Korkut Ozgen has done with this fine website dedicated to providing information about their long and colorful history. Mr. Ozgen is a graduate of Bogazici University in Istanbul, and is particularly interested in the non-Muslim communities of the Ottoman society. The site is divided into several primary sections, including those dedicated to Ottoman history, their military campaigns, and their art and culture. In the history section, visitors can read brief essays (accompanied with various historical visual artifacts) on the various periods of Ottoman history, from the 13th century to World War I. The arts and culture section is quite splendid, as visitors may learn first-hand about the amazing legacy bequeathed to future generations from the Ottomans in the areas of calligraphy, architecture, ceramics and carpets. The site is rounded out by a glossary of terms and an extensive reference section for those who would like to read more about the Ottomans.
