Perhaps the most well known, and helpful, online resource for classicists and ancient historians is Perseus. It is a joint project, originally started at Tufts University, which transcribes ancient texts, in both the original language as well as (often) an English translation. Most of the authors and works cited on our website can be found on Perseus, allowing you to read for yourself the evidence upon which we have built our arguments. It also contains catalogues of texts from other eras, as well as a collection of archaeological materials which are searchable.
The STOA website is a blog offering news, overviews of vacancies that are of interest to students of the ancient world, and more.
Roger Pearce’s Tertullian Project obviously focuses on the Christian writer Tertullian, but also offers texts by Cornelius Nepos, Juvenal, and others.
The Theoi Project by Aaron J. Atsma profiles each deity and creature of Greek mythology on a separate page, incorporating an encyclopedia summary, quotations from a wide selection of ancient Greek and Roman texts, and illustrations from ancient art.
René Voorburg’s website Vici.org is worth a visit: the whole ancient world presented as a big map, with many photos and links to other websites.
A website that deals specifically with Aegean-style wall-paintings from Tell el-Dab’a in Egypt. It’s a joint venture of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna and the Ruhr-University Bochum; it is supported by the Austrian Archaeological Institute and currently funded by the Institute for Aegean Prehistory (INSTAP).
Contributor Matthew Lloyd assembled a list of websites for archaeological projects in Greece, such as Olynthos, Lefkandi-Xeropolis, and the Athenian Agora.
