Greek and Roman Material Culture
The aim of this guide is to provide a starting point for research into the decorative arts and material culture of ancient Greece and Rome. It is by no means comprehensive and is intended to provide an overview of research sources available at the BGC, in the surrounding community, and online.
This guide was compiled by Roger Yerburgh at the Bard Graduate Center Library.
