Top Classical Sites
My personal "Top Twenty" are regularly checked and updated
The first four are probably the most important - along with Wikipedia.
- Diotima - materials for the study of women and gender in the ancient world.
This is a superb resource. [http://www.stoa.org/diotima/]
- Internet Classics Archive - offers 375 works by 30 classical authors,
in English translation, browsable and supported by a search engine.
Recent technical problems have affected the search facilites, although
the texts are still accessible. [http://webatomics.com/Classics/]
- ThePerseus Project - detailed searchable library of texts, translations,
art and archaeology of Ancient Greece and Rome. Better than the CD ROM
version in many ways - it includes most Latin authors, and special projects,
such as Hercules, and the Olympics. Many of the vase images, however
aren't available online.[http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/]
- The Stoa Consortium A superb portal for Classics. Includes Metis, the ultimate guide to archaeological sites in Greece.
- About.com - Latin language - an amazing portal to all manner of
sites dealing with latin, updated daily. Magnificent! [http://latin.about.com/homework/latin/mbody.htm]
- Bryn Mawr Classical Review Index for all articles published in this
journal over the last ten or so years. Amazing resource. [http://ccat.sas.upenn.edu/bmcr/]
- Classics Page at Ad Fontes Academy - library of texts in Latin from
Cicero to Carroll's Alice in Wonderland. Save time and effort in typing
out passages - it's all here. [http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/classics]
- Dr J's Illustrated Guide to the Classical World - Dr Janice
Siegel's superb collection of her photographs of Greece and Italy (including
some less-visited sites), together with scholarly text. Especially good
on Greek theatre and drama. [http://lilt.ilstu.edu/drjclassics]
- Loebs online. Every Loeb you've ever wanted is here (353 at last
- Biliotheca Augustana - collectio textuum electronicorum. Texts in
Latin, Greek (beta text) and other languages, in a very classily-designed
site entirely in Latin. "Cave Exploratorem et Gatem" - he's
a Mac fanatic, but seems to work fine on my PC. [http://www.fh-augsburg.de/~harsch/augustana.html]
- JACT The Joint Association of Classical Teachers[http://www.jact.org]
dictionaries for more languages than you could shake a stick at,
and some excellent linguistic resources. [http://www.alphadictionary.com/index.shtml]
- Intute - a comprehensive directory of resources for Classics teachers [http://www.intute.ac.uk/cgi-bin/fullrecord.pl]
