WEB RESOURCES :

 
WEB RESOURCES:
The web contains a vast respository of materials related to the study of ancient Greek history. Many college and university faculty maintain databases and pages on specific issues or sites; internationally renowned museums and archaeological sites provide images of samples of their vast collections of artifacts; scholars increasingly turn to the web to publish their analyses of issues.
 
FORUM: Many of our classroom discussions will spill over to the next class meeting, or will be prompted by issues that you want to consider between classes. The Forum provides an easy venue for the consideration of such issues.
 

PERSEUS AND MARTIN'S OVERVIEW (WEB):
The premier site for classical Greece is Perseus, a database of linguistic, literary, historical and archaeological materials. Perseus should become as essential a tool for you as your texts, since it provides extensive literary and visual evidence for ancient Greece. We will also utilize the electronic version of your textbook, Thomas Martin's Overview of Archaic and Greek Classical History, since it also is embedded in, and links to, the Perseus database.

 
PERSEUS (LOCAL):
The Department of Classics also has mounted on a local server the full CD-ROM version of Perseus, containing more images and avoiding the vagaries of the web. For instructions on how to create a shortcut to the server, go to the Classics Department's Perseus webpage.
