Johns Hopkins University Archaeological Museum
Developed spring 2011.
This bibliography is presented in conjunction with an online exhibit, done in part by an undergraduate research class, titled Archaeology of Daily Life.  Topics of the exhibit include Childhood; Private Pleasures; Female Beauty; Jewelry; and “Tanagras.” The bibliography includes works on all these topics, presented together; it includes articles, monographs, and museum catalogs, all in English.

This select bibliography, aimed at undergraduates, lists books and a few web sites, mostly in English.  There are general works, and sections on Greece and Rome.  Topics covered include time, economics, society, family and religion.

I’m currently looking for additional bibliographies to recommend to an undergraduate/graduate class on ancient (Greek and especially Roman) daily life, including economic issues; if you know of any, please let me know!
