  • About This Research Guide

    Welcome to the classics research guide at Emory. Classics is the study of the ancient Greek and Roman worlds, including their literature, language, culture, history, and legacy. This research guide introduces students to many of the resources available for getting information on these ancient cultures from primary resources (ancient texts and artifacts) to secondary sources that write about the Classics in modern times.
