Virtual Antiquity - Events and Experiences


With the spread of Covid-19, institutions related to the study of antiquity are finding new and creative ways to continue to engage with their communities and wider audiences.

Most institutions are of course turning to technology to create virtual events and experiences that users can enjoy from wherever they are so long as they have an internet connection. These include virtual conferences, museum exhibits, and even virtual tours of ancient places. The ISAW Library staff have attended various virtual events. For instance, the annual meetings of the Association of Ancient Historians and the American Research Center in Egypt were both migrated to an online platform. We have assembled a brief list of free, open to the public, upcoming or current virtual events and experiences that have been brought to our attention:

Virtual Tours and Museum Exhibits

Please keep in mind some online conferences and lectures require (free) registration in order to access links for the event.
