• ROMARCH: Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani (CSIR)

    The Classical Art Research Centre (CARC) at the University of Oxford is pleased to announce the launch of a set of webpages for the Corpus Signorum Imperii Romani (CSIR) project: www.corpussignorum.org

    CSIR is the long-running international project to publish the sculptures of the Roman Empire, particularly provincial sculpture. The new bilingual pages are hosted by CARC, in collaboration with the Università degli Studi di Cassino e del Lazio Meridionale, on behalf of the International Association for Classical Archaeology which founded CSIR in 1963. In the first instance they will provide information and guidance for users of and contributors to the project.

    The Classical Art Research Centre, which is home to the Beazley Archive and its database, is dedicated to promoting and supporting research on all aspects of ancient art. Besides its own projects and online resources, it already hosts the website of the Corpus Vasorum Antiquorum on behalf of the Union Académique Internationale: www.carc.ox.ac.uk

  • ROMARCH instructions

    On 15 April 1995, ROMARCH was founded as the first Internet e-mail discussion and distribution list for early Italian and Roman art and archaeology. Its mission has been to:

    • foster communication between professionals, students, and laypersons;
    • serve as an exchange for queries and answers;
    • be a sounding board for testing ideas and arguments;
    • provide a ‘forum’ for general discussions;
    • act as a bulletin board for recent discoveries and news;
    • supply notices of jobs, excavations, projects, and publications in the field.

    ROMARCH is now a blog at: https://quemdixerechaos.com/category/romarch/.
