Aeria is an online resource from the Institute of Classical Archaeology at the Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. It consists primarily of images of and information relating to the university's collection of classical Greek and Roman artefacts, including sculpture (some original objects as well as plaster casts of others) and painted pottery dating from the eighth century BCE onwards. Users may undertake a virtual tour of the museum itself, viewing artefacts by display case, as well as being given information on special exhibitions. The site also has a searchable section of images from the museum's photographic archive; this collection houses photographs of classical sites and artefacts taken by photographers from 1860-1914. Whilst section headings are given in English translation throughout, the majority of the website's detailed text is in German.
Plastercasts.org is a website from the Beazley Archive at the University of Oxford. The site makes available online images of the archive's plaster casts of classical sculptures, as well as providing an introduction to various aspects of ancient art and archaeology. The site's two most informative sections are entitled 'Sculpture' and 'Plastercasts'. The first of these is divided into illustrated sections on the following topics: archaic period; classical period; Hellenistic period; architectural sculpture; grave monuments; votive, cult and commemorative monuments; and portraiture. The second provides information on the role of plastercasts, copies and restoration in the diffusion of classical art in modern times, and also includes sections on the making of casts and the history of Oxford's cast collection. The website also provides an extensive illustrated dictionary of key names (places, people, gods and goddesses) and terms which are necessary for an understanding of ancient art. Links are also given to other online resources from the Beazley Archive, and the site provides details of relevant events.
