Travels Through
Greco - Roman Antiquity
An exploration of texts and images from Falvey Library's Special Collections works on ancient Greece and Rome.

This project seeks to highlight classically-themed works in Villanova University Falvey Library's Special Collections.  By examining these works, Villanova students from Dr. Valentina DeNardis' Greek and Roman archaeology classes are exploring the many layers of the Greco-Roman world, looking back to the past at actual monuments and literary works from antiquity and moving forward to the time of the works in Special Collections and beyond.

The Greece portion of the website was prepared by the fall 2014 undergraduate Cities of Ancient Greece class and the Rome portion was prepared by the spring 2015 undergraduate Pompeii & Herculaneum class.  The Philadelphia portion of the website was prepared by the spring 2016 graduate Greece & Rome in Art and Culture class.  Click on a map to enter a section.
