oxfordOxford University is the major centre in the UK for classical research, covering both the Greek and Roman worlds, and the widest range of disciplinary approaches.  In the Centre for the Study of Ancient Documents, it has particular expertise in the fields of both epigraphy and digitization.

Oxford University is currently engaged in preparing a full catalogue of all the evidence for late Roman statuary, across the whole of the Roman empire – a project entitled ‘The Last Statues of Antiquity’ (LSA).  The majority of the evidence for these statues (some 1.500 of 2.500 entries) consists of the inscriptions on surviving, or recorded, statue-bases. This means that our project intersects very closely with the EAGLE initiative, with which we have been in close consultation at every stage.
