Spring 2010


Museum Research Project

In the collections of the Mediterranean Section of the University of Pennsylvania Museum there are many objects that have some relationship with Greek athletics. Each of you will choose an object or objects to study during the course of the term and you will write a brief research paper on the subject of your object(s).

The research paper is due on April 20 and should be 15 pages long. For the format of your paper I recommend that you consult Kate L. Turabian, A Manual For Writers of Term Papers, Theses and Dissertations, University of Chicago Press.

Incidentally, during the course of the term, as we discuss the individual events of Greek Athletics, ancient athletes and objects from the Museum collections, I will want each of you to contribute to the discussion where appropriate. Should you have questions you can send me e-mail or come to my office hours.
