Odysseus - "The name we gave our server is "Odysseus" because we believe that he, the greatest of all voyagers, is the most representative Greek of all. He is also the character most apt to lead your steps to the fascinating quest you just start" - [The Hellenic Ministry of Culture - All the Museums, Archeaological Sites and Monuemnts]

Prehistoric Archaeology of the Aegean - "This site contains information about the prehistoric archaeology of the Aegean. Through a series of lessons and illustrations, it traces the cultural evolution of humanity in the Aegean basin from the era of hunting and gathering (Palaeolithic-Mesolithic) through the early village farming stage (Neolithic) and the formative period of Aegean civilization into the age of the great palatial cultures of Minoan Crete and and Mycenaean Greece." [Chronology and Terminology - Environment - History of the Discipline - 29 Lessons - Glossary] [Sponsored by the Foundation of the Hellenic World and Dartmouth College]

Akrotiri of Thera - "It is one of the most important prehistoric settlements of the Aegean. The first habitation at the site dates from the Late Neolithic times (at least the 4th millenium B.C.). During the Early Bronze Age (3rd millenium B.C.), a sizeable settlement was founded and in the Middle and early Late Bronze Age (ca. 20th-17th centuries B.C.) it was extended and gradually developed into one of the main urban centres and ports of the Aegean. The large extent of the settlement (ca. 20 hectares), the elaborate drainage system, the sophisticated multi-storeyed buildings with the magnificent wall-paintings, furniture and vessels, show its great development and prosperity. The various imported objects found in the buildings indicate the wide network of its external relations. Akrotiri was in contact with Crete but also communicated with the Greek Mainland, the Dodecanese, Cyprus, Syria and Egypt."

Ancient City of Athens - "The ancient city of Athens' is a photographic archive of the archaeological and architectural remains of ancient Athens (Greece). It is intended primarily as a resource for students of classical art & archaeology, civilization, languages, and history at Indiana University as a supplement to their class lectures and reading assignments and as a source of images for use in term papers, projects, and presentations. We also hope that this site will be useful to all who have an interest in archaeological exploration and the recovery, interpretation, and preservation of the past."

Electronic Resources for Classicists

The Perseus Project [The Perseus Project is an evolving digital library of resources for the study of the ancient world and beyond. Collaborators initially formed the project to construct a large, heterogeneous collection of materials, textual and visual, on the Archaic and Classical Greek world. Planning for Perseus began in 1985; the project was formally established in July, 1987. Since then, the Perseus Project has published two CD-ROMs and created the on-line Perseus Digital Library. Recent expansion into Latin texts and tools and Renaissance materials has served to add more coverage within Perseus and has prompted the project to explore new ways of presenting complex resources for electronic publication. The copyright to the Perseus database is owned by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the President and Fellows of Harvard College and is protected by the copyright laws of the United States and the Universal Copyright Convention. Yale University Press distributes the CD ROM version of Perseus. ]
