The Exhibit and Website
The Rodney S. Young Gallery
The Ancient Greek World Web presentation is based on an exhibit in the University
of Pennsylvania's Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology's newly renovated
Rodney S. Young Gallery. The 1994 renovation of the gallery was under the
general supervision of the Mediterranean Section's Chief Curator, Donald White.
The overall conceptualization of that exhibit, which forms the intellectual
basis for the present Web pages, was the joint effort of the section's permanent
staff, consisting of White, Keith DeVries, Associate Curator, and David Romano,
Keeper of the Mediterranean Collection, supplemented by Irene Romano, Research
Associate, who served as a special consultant to the exhibit and Yelena Stolyarik,
Research Associate. The introductory text for that exhibit was written by
Irene Romano and Donald White was responsible for those subjects dealing with
religion, daily life, trade and manufacturing, along with death and burial
in Greek society. Responsibility for the coin descriptions indcluded in Trade
and Manufacturing was jointly shared by Stolyarik and White. Important additional
contributions were made to the text panels and lables by DeVries and to all
other sections of the exhibit by David Romano.
This presentation via the Web has been adapted from a special feature article
in Expedition Magazine, volume #36, nos 2-3, entitled "The Ancient Greek
World." It was compiled and produced by Lee Horne together with Jennifer
Quick and presented select material which was extracted from the gallery's
cases and text panels.
The material from this Expedition's feature has been adapted for the Web by
the Museum's Websiters, the layout and design being the work of Alfred Hanssen
and Zachary Christman.
