Roman Society – Electronic Resources
The Roman Society has recently developed two new electronic resources now available on its website.
The majority of the photos are digitised copies of the Society's slide collection housed in the Library, which grew to include 3,500 slides. The best of the collection was scanned and enhanced to improve access to this valuable resource. Although the quality of some slides, mostly donated in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, is variable, they are also important records of how Roman monuments and their environments (and the people studying these remains) have changed over time.
Some additional images have now been added to the original collection and two galleries have been created (Pompeii and Hadrian’s Wall).
If you would like to donate your own images to help the collection grow, please see the donation page:
If you have a large collection you would like to donate, please email
