Classics Resource of the Week – Athenian Agora Excavations

August 13, 2013

This weeks classics resource is the Athenian Agora Excavations.

This site will keep you up to date with the American School of Classical Studies at Athens excavations of the Athenian Agora. In addition to this there are also guides to the site providing detailed information on each place of interest (including site plans and where possible pictorial reconstructions). Access is also provided to all digital archaeological data from the excavations. I have spent hours looking through this information (there is a lot to immerse yourself in). Finally, there are links to all publications that have been released as a result of work at the site. These publications are fascinating, and extensive, but will particularly useful for those undertaking research in this area.

I would highly recommend this site to anyone interested in archaeology but also the social aspects of the Agora. There is a lot to be learnt about society from the artefacts and buildings that have been discovered during the excavations.
