* Archaeology
+ Bath Past
A collection of artcles on the historic buildings of Bath, maintained by Jean Manco.
+ Council for British Archaeology
"the gateway to British archaeology on-line".

+ Mr Donn's Ancient History Page
Maintained by Lin & Don Donn. A huge site, covering many periods and places. Extremely useful resource for teachers.

+ Federseemuseum
Bad Buchau; maintained by Joachim Rehmet. "The museum shows the archaeology of late stone age reindeer hunters and lake dwellers from the stone and bronze age."
In German & English.

+ Hechingen-Stein Roman Open-Air Museum
"The WWW-pages of the Roman Open-Air Museum in Hechingen-Stein, Germany, which show an excavated Roman "Villa Rustica" dating from the 1st to the 3rd century A.D., have been completely re-designed. They now include a description of the site, a new excavation report, a virtual tour through the museum and the villa and a guestbook."
In German & English.

+ Meet the Ancestors
The B.B.C.'s popular archaeology programme.

+ Prehistoric Web Index
Part of the WWW Virtual Library.

+ Resonance -Archaeology
Maintained by Toby Wilkinson. A wide range of links to a wide variety of sites.

+ Time Team 1999
Channel 4's popular archaeology programme. I'd have linked to the main Time Team page, but Channel 4 don't want people who use text-based browsers to use their site.

+ Virtual Mummy
The Department of Radiology at Rush-Presbyterian-St.Luke's Medical Centre presents an evaluation of a 3000 year old Egyptian mummy, using CT scan techniques. The site contains 2D and 3D reconstructions of the mummy.

+ WWW for Classicists & Mediterranean Archaeologists
Sebastian Heath. This is a very extensive collection of links, with a search engine to help you find a particular link without browsing through the pages and pages of them on offer. Its drawback is that everything's thrown into one huge page, so that it might take a while to load.


* Classical Studies
(See also the Individual Philosophers section for on-line texts of some ancient writers, and here.)
+ Campanian Society
A non-profit organization serving the needs of educators in the classics and others interested in the classics.
"General information, as well as educational material and travel information related to The Ancient World, The Greek World, The Roman World, The Egyptian World, Greek & Roman Mythology, African Mythology, Native American Mythology, Latin Language, Ancient Art, Architecture, Sculpture and Painting."

+ Classics at Oxford
This is the Home Page of the Faculty of Literae Humaniores at Oxford, and offers a wide range of links to related sites and Classics resources.

+ Mr Donn's Ancient History Page
Maintained by Lin & Don Donn. A huge site, covering many periods and places. Extremely useful resource for teachers.

+ Duke University Papyrus Archive
A fascinating resource, offering a great deal of information about papyri (both in general and this archive in particular), their background and significance, languages and cultures, etc., as well as images of the papyri themselves.

+ Durham University
Classics department page maintained by David S. Levene, including HISTOS, a journal of ancient historiography.

+ Perseus
An introduction and users' guide, plus much of the Perseus database on line, and searchable - information and images. It's huge, and no Hellenist should be without it.

+ Roman Open-Air Museum
"The WWW-pages of the Roman Open-Air Museum in Hechingen-Stein, Germany, which show an excavated Roman "Villa Rustica" dating from the 1st to the 3rd century A.D., have been completely re-designed. They now include a description of the site, a new excavation report, a virtual tour through the museum and the villa and a guestbook."
In English & German.

+ WWW for Classicists & Mediterranean Archaeologists
This is a very extensive collection of links, with a search engine to help you find a particular link without browsing through the pages and pages of them on offer.


* Language & Languages (including linguistics, semiotics, etc.)
+ The Semiotics of Writing: Conference
University of San Marino; 12-14 November, 1999.
+ Greek Language Translation Resources
Greek search engines, dictionaries, news, etc. Fully bilingual.

+ Human-Languages Page
An ambitious attempt to gather together resource material on all human languages. A huge site, with thousands of links to explore.

+ Summer Institute of Linguistics
Not just linguistics, but sections on all sorts of areas, including anthropology, religion and philosophy, and much, much more. Well worth a visit.


* Libraries & Museums
(See also entries under subjects - especially for Archaeology. There's also a Museums section on the Sciences page. Finally, for Oxford museums, see the Local Links page.)
+ Association of Research Libraries
+ La Bibliotheque Nationale de France
Information, on-line catalogues, etc.

+ M25 Consortium
Information service for and about libraries in the London area.

+ PORTICO
The British Library's Online Information Server. Unfortunately it's become a frames victim, with the typical impertinent request that you change your browser/operating system. Still usable by text-based browsers, though (for the moment).

+ BUBL UK: Libraries
A compilation of links to (mainly) academic-library servers; not exciting, but useful.

+ World-Wide Web Museum Information
Based in Reading. It includes local museums and a Virtual Library museums pages (VLmp) providing a directory of on-line museums around the world.

* Mediaeval Studies
(See also the Individual Philosophers section for on-line texts of some mediaeval writers.)
+ Bryn Mawr Mediaeval Review
An on-line and e-mail journal. This gopher site includes details of the journal, how to subscribe, and a searchable archive. However, the journal has undergone a number of recent changes, and you should check its new incarnation.

+ CELT: Corpus of Electronic Texts
Based at University College, Cork. A project to provide on-line Irish texts (not only mediaeval).
+ Hill Monastic Manuscript Library Home Page
Details of the library, with some on-line resources.

+ The Labyrinth
A WWW server for mediaeval studies. I'm tempted to say the server; it's massive, and you can probably find anything you're looking for here (excepting Alice).

+ Mediaeval Academy of America
Information about the Academy, membership details, etc.

+ Medieval Review
Was the Bryn Mawr Medieval Review, now based at Western Michigan University.
+ Daniel Mosser's WWW Medieval Resources Page

* Miscellaneous
+ Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in the Liberal Arts (CIRLA)
Information about the Centre (based at Augustana University College, Alberta, Canada), its research, its journal Dianoia, and its e-mail list CIRLA-L.

+ Chronicle of Higher Education
The U.S. equivalent of the Times Higher.

+ Distance Learning
My own page. Includes continuing education sites and vacation courses.

+ EDSITEment
"created and sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Council of the Great City Schools, MCI Communications Corp., and the National Trust for the Humanities, and serves as a gateway to what we consider to be the best humanities-related educational content on the Internet."
Unfortunately, the site isn't terribly friendly to text-based browsers.


+ Freedom of Expression at the National Endowment for the Arts
An interdisciplinary curriculum project funded by the American Bar Association, Commission on College and University Legal Studies through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education, by Julie Van Camp at California State University, Long Beach.

+ HUMBUL Humanities Hub
A gateway to a vast range of resources across the humanities, offering short reviews and the opportunity to add your own comments about the sites linked to. Invaluable.

+ Horus History Links
Very full listings of history and history-related (very broadly interpreted) resources.

+ Mansoor Amarna Collection
Information about and history of the collection, plus on-line and down-loadable images.

+ National Coalition of Independent Scholars
Information, activities, articles, membership details, etc. (The Nation in question is the U.S.A., incidentally -- a fact only gleanable from their postal address; few institutions have really grasped that the World-Wide Web is world wide.)

+ Papyrus of Ani
The Egyptian Book of the Dead, scanned (in .gif format) and translated (in .doc format, whatever that is -- they don't say, so it's probably got something to do with Windoze).

+ Purely Academic
"a database recently launched on the Web by a group of Students in Trinity College Dublin. It is a searchable database of "Academic links", in other words links that are of interest to people involved in research." A good start - some surprising omissions (and inclusions), but it's an interesting site to browse.

+ Teaching resources on the WWW
A set of links to sites offering a variety of resources, including software, bibliographies, etc.
