Scholarly Publishing is proud to announce the launch of a new image collection, Images of Ancient Music. The project was brought to Scholarly Publishing by Professor Tim Moore, the John and Penelope Biggs Distinguished Professor of Classics and Director of Undergraduate Studies.
The collection, hosted in ARTstor’s Shared Shelf Commons, contains images of museum artifacts, musical instruments, and buildings from antiquity and also landscapes of important sites around the world, such as Rome and Pompeii.
These images were originally hosted in an online collection at the University of Texas at Austin, where Professor Moore taught before coming to Washington University. Scholarly Publishing would like to thank colleagues at UT Austin for providing the images and metadata for this project.
Images of Ancient Music currently contains over 900 publicly available images, with more to be added in the future.
