New DIGITAL Resource

The British School at Rome Library and Archive has announced the launch of a new digital database, funded by a generous grant from the Getty Foundation. This incredible resource will eventually include maps, prints, photographs, manuscripts, paintings, drawings and postcards.

The database currently includes maps of Rome, prints of important Roman architectural projects, and some wonderful photographs of the Sacro Bosco that were taken from the John Bryan Ward-Perkins Collection.
