Classics Vine is a place to collect news and articles regarding the scholarly study of Classics.

What Classics is (from Wikipedia):

Classics or Classical Studies is the branch of the Humanities dealing with the languages, literature, history, art, and other aspects of the ancient Mediterranean world; especially Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome during the time known as classical antiquity, roughly spanning from the Ancient Greek Bronze Age in 1000 BC to the Dark Ages circa AD 500.

The Mediterranean during this period also explicitly includes the Middle East and Egypt, so any early Christian or Roman Imperial Jewish news is also welcome.

What Classics is not: Classics is not a place to discuss the English literary canon, classic record/albums, etc.

Much of the material posted to this group will likely also be found in History section of Newsvine, but I wanted a place that specifically focused that content in one place. Material may also be cross-posted or clipped to any of the other Newsvine groups focused on history in a broader context.

Thanks, and happy Vining!
