Interesting YouTube Channel: Voices of the Past

Here is another interesting YouTube channel I came across in the past few months. It almost exclusively contains documentary-style readings of first-hand written accounts by authors in ancient and olden times.In contrast to many other history-oriented channels, it focuses on non-western authors and non-famous western authors whose first-hand accounts are, in my opinion, just as importatant as those written by famous western authors.

Link to YouTube channel: Voices of the Past

Clip #1: How Japan Became a Great Power in Only 40 Years

Clip #2: Japanese Diplomat to US Describes Desperate Last Days Before Pearl Harbor

Would also recommend First Indian Visitor Describes England and European Life, First Chinese Visitor Describes Medieval Europe and Japanese Historian Describes First Contact With Europeans. Many other clips on this channel are also quite good.
