Image database 'Ancient Bronzes in Berlin'

Thanks to funding from the DFG, the image database 'Ancient Bronzes in Berlin' in Berlin, compiled from 2004 to 2011, has been online since September 2011. Since January 2012 it has been possible to update and expand the database day-by-day.

The new database replaces the older 'Friederich Image Database' and catalogues, in 8278 separate entries, the bronze, lead, and iron objects (current holdings and war losses) in the Antikensammlung, the vast majority of which were acquired prior to 1945. A wide variety of search criteria allows users to browse the database efficiently and with greater flexibility, including a free-text search and searches by inventory number, material, object group, find location, previous owner, literature, and other criteria.
