Wha*t kinds of resources do each of these sites contain that might be useful for theatre historians?*

The website http://perseus.mpiwg-berlin.mpg.de/ has a wide range of images and texts available to view. This site includes Museum photography, making it easy to view materials such as Greek Vases and sculptures from Museums around the country.

http://ancienthistory.about.com/cs/greekarchitecture/ – This site is very useful to theatre historians. It has a page allowing you to view "The Essentials." Here you are able to look at "Major dates in Ancient history," and it provides a glossary to look up names and cities- for example- "Eurymachus [Son of Polybus; suitor from Ithaca.] " Quite useful for all those confusing Greek words!

http://duke.usask.ca/~porterj/skenotheke.html- In this site you are able to view a virtual reality tour of historic theatres and look at virtual reconstructions. This is a good idea- so we can actually see what it all really looked like.

3. What do you think makes any one of these websites more valuable than the others you have considered as a source for theatre historians?

Out of all the sites i think the most valuable were the ones that provided essential dates and virtual reconstructions. This is also because these sites are detailed and offer photographs alongside important information.

4. Search the internet to find a further website to add to one of the categories above. Indicate how you found it, and explain why you think it should be added.
