The Joukowsky Institute for Archaeology and the Ancient World is dedicated to the academic study and public promotion of the archaeology and art of the ancient Mediterranean, Egypt, and Western Asia (the latter broadly construed as extending from Anatolia and the Levant to the Caucasus, and including the territories of the ancient Near East); our principal research interests lie in the complex societies of the pre-modern era. Although the core efforts of the Joukowsky Institute are archaeological in nature and are located within this broadly defined zone, close ties with all individuals interested in the ancient world, and with archaeologists of all parts of the globe, are welcome and actively encouraged. The goal of the Institute is to foster an interdisciplinary community of interest in the archaeology of the ancient world, and in the discipline of archaeology more generally. Its mandate is to promote research, fieldwork, teaching, and public outreach, with the Institute’s associated faculty, students, and facilities serving as a hub for this activity. -->

The Arthur and Janet C. Ross Library of the American Academy in Rome contains over 135,000 volumes in the fields of of classical studies and the history of art and architecture. Especially strong are the collections in ancient Mediterranean archaeology and art, Greek and Latin literature, ancient topography (including the history of the city of Rome), ancient religions, and related fields such as epigraphy, numismatics and papyrology. There is a good working collection in the history of art and architecture, especially Italian. The rare book collection comprises chiefly 16th-18th century imprints in classical studies, archaeology, art and architecture, including sizeable collections of Roman guidebooks and early art treatises. The Library also houses small but noteworthy collections in contemporary art and architecture, landscape architecture, Italian history and literature, American literature, historical travel books and music. The Library acquires ca. 2,000 volumes per year and subscribes to approximately 600 current periodicals. Preference is given to scholarly publications in the core subjects listed above. A special priority is given to publications from the United States, in the conviction that the Academy has a responsibility to represent the best of American scholarship to Rome's multinational community.
Limyra ist eine Stadt des lykischen Bundes, die neben den üblichen Ruinen - Theater, Agora, Stadtmauer, byzantinische Kirche - vor allem mehrere Nekropolen aufzuweisen hat, von denen vor allem die westliche wirklich bemerkenswert ist. Der komplette Berghang ist übersät mit Felsgräbern, die auch bestens ausgestattet sein sollen. Da der Hang aber recht steil ist und auf Grund seiner Lage praktisch den ganzen Tag in der prallen Sonne liegt und außer den Grabkammern keinerlei schattige Stellen aufzuweisen hat, haben wir es trotz zweier Besuche (1988 und 2002) nicht weiter als bis zu den ersten Gräbern geschafft. Auf der Höhe des Berges liegt noch eine Akropolis mit den Grundmauern eines Heroons, über die ich mir aber aus dem gleichen Grund kein Urteil erlauben kann. Der Aufstieg soll laut Reiseführer ohne Pause ca. 45 Minuten beanspruchen
