The page is part of the International Center for the Study of the Herculaneum Papyri. The rolls have been the object of renewed scholarly work (especially graduate students) and have yielded many findings indispensable for the study of Hellenistic philosophy.

  10. THE CHRISTIAN CATACOMBS OF ROME
  11. Athenian Agora Excavations
  12. Waters of the City of Rome and FRONT PAGEwaterr.jpg
    Provides an "...interactive archive of the hydrological history and urban development of the city of Rome from 753 BC to the present day." Try a "document source" command in your browser and see how easy it is to add a chronology to your web page (your browser must support frames).

    I enjoyed the focus of this page... So many of the pages for survey courses seem to lack a central theme. I suspect that at some future time, a few "gateway" web pages will remain on-line and the bulk of the information will be very specialized. Students will enjoy a click on "Typologyy", a page that gives them the ability to to construct their own map by selecting up to three categories of typological data to overlay on a base map. They will need to download and view the Map Legend first or it will not make sense. The base map includes: the Tiber River, streams, springs, and contemporary city walls. They should aso generate a map showing how much of the ancient hydrological artifacts remain in the city today. These are clearly viewable in any trip to the city today. The rail line between the Airport and the city of Rome is lined in many places with the remains of an ancient aquaduct. " With Aquae Urbis Romae it is possible to study this complex urban system in both linear and lateral modes including: typologically (aqueducts, fountains, floods, sewers, etc.); topographically (the Roman Forum, the Velabrum, the Campus Martius, Trastevere, etc.); and chronologically from approximately 800 BC to the late 20th century. The study is based on completely new computer maps created especially for this project."

    A VERY interesting page...but one that will require a guide constructed by the teacher for full benefits.

  13. Patterns of Reconstruction at Pompeii
    "This document presents the results of an investigation into the reconstruction of a large market building on the Pompeii Forum following and earthquake in 62 AD, seventeen years prior to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius that buried the city. The work is part of the Pompeii Forum Project, a multi-disciplinary study of the development of the Forum as the civic center of Pompeii." Over 2 MEGs of graphics from Pompeii were recently featured on this K-12 page and will be reposted when time and space permits (perhaps this Summer).
  14. Course Materials
    A comprehensive and searchable online Classics Course Database maintained by Suzanne Bonefas. Secondary teachers looking for applications of online teaching should visit the site, even if their field is not Classical Studies. Street in Pompei - taken by Webmaster
  15. The Acropolis Museum
    Some of the displays from this small (but excellent) Museum will be on-line soon on this page. You might want to visit Museums, Monuments and Archaeological Sites of Hellas if you are planning a trip to Greece in the near future. I know some teachers are saying "Yeah, sure!" But....it may not be as expensive as you think. See the first five or six listings under Leisure/Fun/Health below, and if you look carefully at the grapics above, two of them are of American students I met at an archeological site and Museum called Kermeikos in Athens. They visit most of the sites free as "students in Greek universities." More on this topic later.

I tried the Ancient Near East and selected "Political Change in Ancient Mesopotamia 3000-1000 BCE" and the site generated the map that included a succession of empires in the region- from the Sumerian to later empires. By clicking on Political Change in Ancient Mesopotamia 3000-1000 BCE, a student could see the succession of empires in the entire region from the first thru the Macedonian. Boundaries, cities and empires and other map features are clear and sharp. This is an outstanding site to capture the use of graphics and maps to illustrate themes (Empire building thru time) and concepts in Western and World History.

    Who owns the past? This site explores the history of the marbles and the controversy over who they belong to... Since similar issues are raised at various archeological sites on the Internet, this might be a slot for a great student debate or a mock trial (receipt of stolden property). Much of the story here is based on story of the Parthenon Marbles, based on the pamphlet "The Parthenon and the Elgin Marbles" by Epaminondas Vranopoulos, published by the Society for Euboian Studies in 1985. For those who want to enjoy the marbles and sidestep the controversy, the site offers an excellent selection of graphics, with thumbnails for the low bandwidth folks.

    The Joys of Paris

    orsay.jpg A recent visit to Paris (12/98) was a disappointment in one respect. The Louvre was closed because of a labor dispute for the entire week. The city also supplied a major surprise because the "alternative" was the Musee d' Orsay. The graphic to the right is a sample of one of the JPGs from the museum from the trusty digital camera. You might want to visit some of the current sites to browse some of the background on the converted rail station that is now a first-class museum in Paris. Eventually, a large number of select photos generated by the visit will be posted on this page.
