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.
The Beazley Archive is a research unit of the University of Oxford's Faculty of Literae Humaniores; this is its website. The original archive of Sir John Beazley (1885-1970) included about 250,000 photographs, notes, drawings and books relating to ancient Greek and Roman art. In 1979 information technology (IT) projects began with the Pottery Database of Athenian figure-decorated vases of the 7th-4th centuries BC. Since 1992 IT projects on other aspects of classical art have been created. This website displays information about the Archive, including publications and bibliographies, and gives access to the IT projects and databases. These include: gems; pottery; sculpture; and the dictionary. For example: Pottery - The Beazley Archive text database records information about Athenian figure-decorated vases illustrated in publications available to the Ashmolean Library. Begun in 1979, it now has over 67,000 entries, with fourteen fields, including bibliographical references, find-place, shape and iconographical terms. In 1992 the Archive began to participate in a European Union project (RAMA) linking the collections of seven museums across Europe via the Internet. This project enabled the Beazley Archive to begin digitising its photographs and drawings. These include a vast collection of images of classical sites. An enhanced version of the original database is now available via the website (users may search for images according to location). The Dictionary feature of the resource is an excellent alphabetical guide to classical sites and terminology (including references to places, technical terms, buildings, people, gods and other figures from myth); each explanatory entry is accompanied by relevant images from the archive's collection. The project received funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Board (AHRB) within the Resource Enhancement Scheme.
This website is a growing online database of images of ancient archaeological sites and monuments which are held in Bryn Mawr College's slide collection: these images have been digitised for ease of use and online access. This image collection has been in use since before the turn of the twentieth century, and many of the images of archaeological subjects are truly irreplaceable. Many of the medium-format glass plates (lantern slides) from late in the nineteenth or early in the twentieth century were taken of monuments that have subsequently been damaged or eroded. There are also photographs of excavations in progress and of monuments in stages of repair/restoration that provide unique information to contemporary users. The images are available here in 3 formats: small thumbnail images, medium-resolution (c. 640x480 pixels) and high-resolution (c. 1024x768 pixels). Selected images are returned in a new browser window. The collection is indexed by location and/or country, and includes some images from museum collections as well as pictures of monuments in situ. Featured locations include: Greek sites at Aegina, Argos, Athens, Bassae, Corinth, Delphi, Epidauros and Olympia; Italian locations including Capri, Herculaneum, Pompeii, Rome, Syracuse and Tivoli; monuments in Turkey located at Assos, Aspendos, Priene, Sardis and Troy; ancient sites in a wide range of other countries including Algeria, Croatia, France, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Spain, Syria and Tunisia. Each image is accompanied by catalogue details including the date when the picture was taken, although without any further information about the subject. In spite of the absence of this detail, this is a valuable teaching and research resource.
TOCS-IN makes available online the tables of contents of around 185 journals covering the Greek and Roman world, for volumes published after 1992. Volunteers from around the world have helped to build up this bibliography by submitting the tables of contents of various journals in electronic form to TOCS-IN. It is currently edited at the University of Toronto, and there is a mirror service in French provided by the Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium, which gives information on many of the journals pre-dating 1992. Entries include the author's names, article title, journal name, volume/number, and starting page of the article (but not the final page number). The whole collection can be searched online. The search engine is case insensitive, ignores accents, and supports the use of wildcards and Boolean expressions between words. Journal titles follow the abbreviations used in l'Année Philologique.
