Continuing on from my other post of useful things, below are some more handy on-line resources. These are more directed at research and cultural background, rather than language study
Dalton has been around for a while as a very useful site for links across all aspects of Ancient Rome.
Much like Google, this gives you a computer generated view of Ancient Rome. They describe themselves as follows:
The Forum Romanum is an on-line resource project funded by the VRoma NEH grant aimed at creating an on-line community that collects and makes available materials related to the Roman Forum. This web site contains a clickable map and text links that will carry visitors to information about major structures of the Roman Forum. Each page contains a description of the structure, its function and an image. Links to related stories, more images and maps, textbook connections, literary references, famous characters, and relevant web sites are included.
BBC History has useful essays dealing with aspects of Roman History and in particular Roman Britain.
- Internet History Sourcebooks
The Internet History Sourcebooks have been on the web and have updated over time into a much more user friendly format.
- De Imperatoribus Romanis: An Online Encyclopedia of Roman Rulers and their Families
This site contains a range of useful, referenced essays on the life of each Emperor. The coverage is less complete as the Principate moves on past Late Antiquity in the Eastern Empire (Byzantium).
