Maria Daniels is Visual Collections Curator for the Perseus Project, an evolving digital library of humanities resources based at Tufts University. Among its resources, Perseus includes the works of numerous Greek, Latin, and English Renaissance authors, an art catalog of 5,000 ancient objects from dozens of museums worldwide, and 50,000 photographs. The Web site receives about 250,000 hits a day from visitors from Andorra to Zimbabwe. Maria has created on-line exhibits, including QuickTime and QTVR movies, for the Perseus Project Web site. She oversaw the creation of special Web exhibits on the ancient Olympic games and on Hercules, which are noteworthy for having integrated museum objects from a range of collections with primary and secondary source texts on aspects of ancient Greek athletics and mythology. Most recently, Maria has collaborated with the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, on the digitization of their extensive collection of Roman art. In addition, she is a freelance and archaeological photographer who travels frequently to the Mediterranean for her work.
