Scrolls of the Mongol Invasions of Japan http://www.bowdoin.edu/mongol-scrolls/
This site features Takezaki Suenaga's Scrolls of the Mongol Invasions of Japan (Moko Shurai ekotoba). The original scrolls were written during Suenaga's lifetime in the 13th century, but lost for centuries. They reappeared in the 18th century and were copied repeatedly, before being pasted into two scrolls in 1823. This website presents the original scrolls, along with the 18th & 19th-century copies and a 21st-century reconstruction, using technology that allows users to view the scrolls as they were originally intended. Other features: side-by-side comparison of different versions of the scrolls; a guided view with commentary by Professor Tom Conlan of Bowdoin College; and a glossary of terminology.
