SST1 : Hugh's Q's (he's so cool even his work rhymes)

a: http://perseus.uchicago.edu/ – bit of a strange one – hard to navigate and find any really relevant information to theatre students. The links to the exhibitions is interesting – giving some beautiful examples of Greek crafts and architecture – but not much else.

b: http://ancienthistory.about.com/od/greekarchitecture/

Lots of links to various information – quite detailed sections , including an Alphabetical List of Monuments – handy for looking up about famous monuments – particuarly theatres.

A photographic archive of the archaeological and architectural remains of ancient Athens is a great resource if youve never had the privellage of seeing the architecture of ancient Athens before – it helps to give you a sense of what it really looked like.

c : http://wings.buffalo.edu/AandL/Maecenas/index.html – A HUGE collection of colour and black and white photos documenting the Parthenon and the theatre and Temple of Apollo (to name a few)- very thorough and well set out. A really good resource if your having trouble picturing how everywhere actually looked 2000 years ago ( but you do have to use your imagination a bit….failing that just squint)

d: http://www.whitman.edu/theatre/theatretour/home.htm an impressive map of Europe where you can take a "virtual tour" of the various theatres listed . There is a map of the theatre with pictures relating to certian views from the seating . The full circular 3d photo things are really good, with added zoom!! – a bit trippy as well .

Its all pretty funkay ….apart from the fact that theres no Greek theatres up yet….just Turkish ( favourtism methinks)

Found good old MJ in the online catalogue….swanky : )

Heres a website to add http://www.theatrehistory.com/ancient/greek.html
Found it via the untold wonders of google by searching for :ancient greek theatre

Pretty interesting wbesite , lots of stuff on authors, some bits on costume but the best bit (dont get too excited hugh)is:

Records and Preservation of Greek Plays – The archons of Athens kept records of the contests at both the city festivals, giving the names of the choregoi (citizens appointed to defray part of the expense of the production), the poet-teachers (called didascaloi), the actors, plays, and victors in the contests.

Wow, how much fun can a young man have in an afternoon!
