Publications and Resources

Excavations in the Athenian Agora are formally published through the Athenian Agora monograph series and articles in Hesperia, the journal of the American School. A number of digital resources are also made available free-of-charge for teaching and resource purposes.

With the support of the Packard Humanities Institute (PHI) the Athenian Agora Excavations has been involved over the last decade in an ambitious program of digitizing older materials and using new technologies to record continuing excavations.

One long-term goal of this project is the creation of a single integrated and coherent digital archive of all the archaeological resources at the Athenian Agora: from object databases, photographs, site guides, virtual-reality tours, architectural plans and drawings, to new excavation data, reports, and publications. As part of this project, the Athenian Agora maintains Agathe for experimenting with methods of presenting archaeological data to the general public and for creating experimental digital tools that can be used by the scholarly community and excavators in the field.

In recent years, the Athenian Agora has also spearheaded efforts to develop a common interface for all the digital resources of the American School of Classical Studies. The results of this work are to be found in the Digital Library, where you will find all of the publicly accessible digital resources of the Athenian Agora excavations, the Corinth excavations and numerous other archival collections of the ASCSA. Researchers with special assigned access to further digital resources of the excavations should continue to use the Agora and Corinth databases through the research portal.
