ISAW is a center for advanced scholarly research and graduate education, intended to cultivate comparative and connective investigations of the ancient world. It is a discrete entity within New York University.
ISAW uses Flickr to distribute free digital photography related to the ancient world as part of its Ancient World Image Bank initiative. Read more about AWIB here. All AWIB imagery is published under open license, to facilitate scholarly and educational reuse.
AWIB imagery uploaded by ISAW can be viewed via our geographically-organized collections. You can see our latest uploads in our photostream.
Our collaborators on flickr are also contributing their own imagery to the Ancient World Image Bank group.
ISAW's joint historical geography project with the Ancient World Mapping Center at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill also uses Flickr to collect and organize images of ancient sites. You can view the imagery they are using via the Pleiades Places Group, or by visiting the Pleiades Project website and searching for the place you're interested in.
