Images are grouped by country, city and/or site, building (where appropriate), and more detailed location as required by the number of images available. For instance, an image of a sculpted metope from the east side of the Parthenon would be found in Greece (country), Athens (city), Acropolis (site), Parthenon (building), east metopes (detailed location). All listings will be alphabetical, first by country, then by city within country, and so on.
Images of objects in museums may be listed by museum location. Thus, panels from the Parthenon frieze on display in the British Museum may be listed in England, London, British Museum, . . . In some cases, images may be listed in more than one category, but the added complexity introduced by that process is such that we will do that only as time and resources permit.
Each group of images is displayed, as thumbnails, on a single Web page that is linked to the listing here; the number in parentheses next to the page description is the number of images shown on that Web page. You may wish to turn off automatic image loading if you are accessing these pages over a slow connection, especially if there are many images on a single index page.
You may search within the index with the "FIND" function in your browser (in the Edit pull-down menu - also control-F on PCs, command-F on MACs).
Important note about navigation: Navigation within this Web site is somewhat unusual. We have designed the basic index page (this one), the subsidiary index pages, and all image pages to open in their own windows so that you can work efficiently. You will be able to have many images visible on the desktop at once, along with the indices. That will mean, though, that some windows may be hidden by others. Even using the links built into the Web pages may not bring the window you want to the foreground. You should, therefore, try to arrange the windows so that you can select each as needed. In addition, the browser will let you select a window to bring to the foreground (using one of the pull-down menu choices), and the titles of the images and index pages will show as names of the windows.
The "back" button may not function as expected within these windows, because each window has its own "history," and that "history" consists only of the page showing.
We recognize that this is not a standard way of serving Web pages, but we believe it is more efficient for those who will want to see more than one image. Furthermore, we think most of our users will want to examine more than one image when they visit the site. Your comments and reactions will be greatly appreciated.
