Below are links to various coloring pages and other printables from Dover's Free Sample related to different periods of history.  I am not sure how long Dover will keep these up, so you may want to download these to save for later.    If you are looking for a specific historical figure, you may want to check out the list organized by person (which may have some items not found here).
