Finding resources


An image is "a visual representation of something..." (Merriam-Webster Dictionary ).

Images and visual material, in general, are very important tools in the areas of art history and archaeology. They may act as sources of inspiration for your own work, help you understand various theoretical models, or even increase the strength of your arguments when writing a paper.

Finding high-quality images that are not subject to copyright laws may be difficult, especially when using Google. This is why it is better to search for them in library resources or specialized online collections from various institutions.
