The study of the ancient world is a cornerstone of Western scholarship. It possesses a long history with a rich, well established critical literature, but is also a highly active field responding to the emergence of new discoveries, interpretations, and theories. In addition to a vast body of scholarship, classical studies has been quick to move online so that today's students and researchers have ready access to key primary source texts and a range of electronic resources. Oxford Bibliographies Online helps the busy researcher find the scholarship most relevant to them.
