Andrew Carnegie Museums: Life in Ancient Egypt: This is a fun and clear site with the specific mission of getting you to get to know more about Egypt. Very well organized the site provides fundamental information about Ancient Egypt's geography, daily life, and important dates, as the base for what is a nice journey into the spiritual life of this most mystical place. What's more, the Carnegie Museum of Natural History has a vast collection of Ancient Egyptian artifacts which you'll find littering this site.

University of Virginia's ANTIQUA MEDICINA: From Homer to Vesalius: The history of medicine can be fun and this site, the legacy of an exhibit held at UVa-Charlottesville is nor exception. A nice strength is its look at various different fields of medicine in the ancient world.

IBIBLIO: The Public's Library & Digital Archive: The Dead Sea Scrolls: A good site on one of the more exciting archealogical finds of the 20th century. Plenty of clear digital images with interpretive text and annotations.

University of Pennsylvania: The Ancient Greek World: This great site is referred to by Penn as an online exhibition. It uses "artifacts to provide a vivid picture of all aspects of life in ancient Greece, including life in the home, warfare, religion and trade."

University of Pennsylvania: The Origins & Ancient History of Wine: Ahhh, the fruit of the vine! Also from Penn, a fun site which not only traces the evolution of vino, but chats about how "museum excavators uncovered the world's oldest wine jar and museum scientists determined its contents. Also, find out why the grape remains ever popular; cloned over and over again from its ancient beginnings."

Exploring Ancient World Cultures at the University of Evansville: Nice work with a super set of images. A site covering the areas that Halsall's site does and then some: Ancient India, and China are covered along with a strong section on the origins of Islam. Also one of the more ambitious search functions that you'll find on a site, enabling one to search within a specific culture group, whether that be Ancient Rome, Greece, Persia, etc.

University of Texas, Austin: Ancient History & Archaeology: Not the strongest site, but coming from a highly reputible source, too good to leave off. Basically a bevy of links, with better information on Middle Eastern nation-states in their present state.

British Broadcasting Corporation: Archaeology & Ancient History: The BBC does great stuff. Although you'll find that this site has an expressly UK feel to it (Celts, Romans, Anglo-Saxons, etc.) it's still fun and covers a unique and underexposed area of Ancient history, that involving European civilization. Also, check out the archaelogical section for some good priming on an old art.

University of Calgary: Texts for Ancient History Courses: It's all in full-text, and all Greco-Roman, but valuable in that this stuff is primary. From Aeschylus to Plutarch, you'll find plenty of text from guys that have been gone for a long, long time.

Marquette University: Indexed HTML documents in Ancient History & Archaeology: Professor McAdams is a pretty far-out guy: one minute it's the JFK assassination while the next it's the Persian Wars. Anyway, he provides a nice list of full-text Greco-Roman texts, not to mention their organization in alphabetical file by author.

BUBL Information Network (UK): Ancient History: Out of Strathclyde University in England, the BUBL Information Service dedicates itself to "providing value-added access to Internet resources and services of academic, research, and professional significance to the UK Higher Education community." Sites may not all be academic in nature, but they are good ones and the BUBL site itself is frequently updated.

Multnomah County Library: Ancient & Classical Cultures: From Portland's great library system comes this in-house resource from their "Homework Center." The site provide adolescent-level links to information about Ancients the word over, including Maoris, Inuits, and Mesoamericans.

Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University: An exceptionally ambitous site. Truly for someone geared to a more scholarly level of knowing, particulary when it comes to Ancient Greece. Nonetheless, plenty of text, maps, and images for consumption.

University of Washington: Ancient History: A brief but good site from the University of Washington. Provides links to non-U.S. sites, many of which orginate from the historical regions in question.

Virtual Jewish Library: Ancient Jewish History: A great site. Here, you'll find a lot of comprehensive information on Ancient Palestine and Judaism. An impressive feature? All information in the site is self-generated and original.
