Perseus Project

This is Tuft's Perseus site, which might be a little difficult to navigate but it has a ton of information. Use this site to read and research texts in Latin, Greek, translations of texts, secondary sources and view images from numerous museums. The site is not completely user friendly; it can be difficult to navigate, but there is a ton of information available to the diligent and patient. I've noticed that the Berlin server is a bit faster than the Tufts server. The Perseus Classics collection is maintained by Tufts University.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's Ancient Art Collection

Naturally, the Met's permanent collection of ancient art is spectacular. The museum's highlighted pieces are superb examples for each time period. In addition, the Met's website provides a wealth of information on the individual piece and helps put it into a historical context. There are also links to past exhibits and publications and a timeline of art history. This wealth of information is maintained by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.


Herculaneum

This website explores Herculaneum with Quicktime VR movies. All you have to do is click on the green nodes on the map. There isn't much information beyond the map and images, so you will need some supplemental resources to know what you are looking at. The obvious benefits are the amazing QTVR images, which exceed any photograph. This website was made by the same people who created the Pompeii site, but the information comes from the Herculaneum Conservation Project sponsored by the Packard Humanities Institute.

House of the Orchard

This website offers a sampling of material from the British School at Rome's Pompeii Project. The focus is on one particular house in Insula 9 in Region I, the House of the Orchard or "Casa del Fruetteto." In addition to QTVR images there is occasionally accompanying commentary explaining the room's function. This is a fun website with a lot of information about one area in Pompeii. Nick Wood's drawings are a helpful recreation and effectively contribute to making Pompeii come alive on your computer.

Princeton's Classical Language Instruction Program

This site allows students to acquire the sound of Latin and ancient Greek poetry. The site contains portions of texts from various ancient authors read aloud and translated. For example, if you want to hear the first eleven lines of Virgil's Aeneid you click on "Virgil," and press the play button. After you press the "translation" button, a translation of the line in English appears right of the "stop" button. For the Greek, the site provides a number of different pronunciations. This site was created by Princeton University.
