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 languages,
civilization, art, archaeology, and history at Indiana University who may
wish to take a "virtual tour" of the chief excavated regions
and extant monuments. We also hope that this site will be useful to all
who have an interest in archaeological exploration and the recovery, interpetation,
and preservation of the past. At present (August 1995), the goal is to
provide as many images as time and space allow, grouped according to the
main topographical areas of the city. Throughout the 1995-1996 academic
year, brief descriptive entries for each image will be added.
All of the images presented here are from the personal slide collection
of Kevin T. Glowacki and Nancy L. Klein. You are free to download and use
unmodified copies of these images for non-commercial purposes providing
that you include a reference to this site and copyright notice. If you
use any of these images for presentations or papers, or have any comments
or suggestions, we would appreciate hearing from you by email or post.

& high school!) KALO TAXIDI!
