A number of resources are available to broaden students’ knowledge in their study of classics.

Ancient World Gallery
The Ancient World Gallery was founded in 1979 by Stuart Wheeler as a teaching collection within the department, with antiquities that had previously been displayed in the museum of Richmond College, before the move to the present campus in 1914. These antiquities included the mummy and coffin of Ti Ameny Net and other Egyptian items brought to Richmond by Dr. J.L.M. Curry in 1876.

Classics-Philosophy Study and Library

With its den-quality furnishings, the Classics-Philosophy Study and Library (North Court 210) is a place where you will feel at home reading, preparing for class or talking with classmates and teachers. The collection of texts, translations, and scholarly books and wall-to-wall floor-to-ceiling oak shelves have been funded by the generous donations of classical studies alumni.

Library Research Guide

Subject librarians at the University of Richmond Libraries maintain discipline-specific research guides for every academic course of study offered through the School of Arts & Sciences. Students in the Department of Classical Studies can contact the subject librarian directly, view top recommended resources and conduct discipline-specific searches of databases and Web sites. In addition, subject librarians frequently highlight new titles related to the academic field.

This site holds information about archaeological work conducted by University of Richmond students, fieldwork opportunities, archaeology lectures, and news and events related to archaeology.
