Ancient World: Finding Images

What's the Big Deal?

If you choose not to create your own images, you should look for images that artists and photographers WANT to share--freely, without their permission. When using images from the sites below, double-check to make sure that the owners of the images are willing to share them freely--some may have minor restrictions.


Note: you still need to cite where you find these images!!
