Last Statues of Antiquity

[Completed project]

Bert Smith and Bryan Ward-Perkins

In May 2012, ‘The Last Statues of Antiquity’ project published its on-line searchable catalogue of all the evidence for new, newly dedicated, or newly re-worked statuary in Late Antiquity, with over 2800 fully searchable entries, including multiple photographs of many of the objects, and transcriptions and translations of all statue-base inscriptions:

Towards the end of 2015, a multi-authored print volume (The Last Statues of Antiquity) will be published, with a full discussion of all aspects of the late-antique statue habit, as identified by our empire-wide survey.

The Last Statues of Antiquity was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
