Dear Friends, Donors, Colleagues - Welcome to the new website and blog for the Antinoupolis Foundation! I am very pleased to announce the launch of this new venue to disseminate information about the history of Antinoupolis and the archaeological work that has taken place in the past and that we are currently conducting there. We are launching now to celebrate the five-year anniversary of the collaboration of the Antinoupolis Foundation and the Isitituto Papirologico "G. Vitelli." We are so pleased and proud to be working together with the Istituto to excavate and preserve the ancient city of Antinoupolis, to publish the results of our work, and to help tell the remarkable story of this ancient city and this moment in history to the world. On this site you will find regularly updated information useful for the specialist as well as for more casual inquiries. If you find the site useful, please make a donation to help keep it going and to help further our archaeological work. Our next excavation campaign begins very soon: 17 October 2015, so a donation now could not be more timely. Thank you!
You are reading the blog now, and its latest entry will be located on the home page along with a gallery of recent photos. Clicking to the "Blog" tab will take you to an archive of blog entries and photos. The "Bibliography" tab will take you to an ever-growing compilation of articles and books about Antinoupolis including the expedition's own published material. Articles about Antinoupolis from print and electronic media can be found by clicking the "Press" tab. The "Newsletter" tab navigates to a page where you can view and download all of the issues of the Foundation's newsletter, "The Antinoupolis Oracle." The "About" tab leads to a drop down menu where you can learn about the city itself, the Antinoupolis Foundation, and the Istituto Papirologico "G. Vitelli" which, under the direction of Prof. Rosario Pintaudi, directs the Foundation's funded projects and all other archaeological work at the site.
Please let us hear from you - via the "Get In Touch" tab - to tell us what you think of our new home on the Internet, to make suggestions, or to make further inquiry. Also please make a donation using the "Donate" tab to help us continue to uncover the story of this remarkable city. You can donate with a credit card on our secure payment system, or mail a check to our address in Chicago.
We are happy you found us here on the web; please stop by often to see what's new. If you would like to receive notifications of new posts to the blog or if you would like to automatically receive new editions of our newsletter, "The Oracle," look for the sidebar, enter your email address and indicate your preferences.
Thank you so much again, and enjoy!
