Peopling the Past is touted as "a Digital Humanities initiative that hosts free, open-access resources for teaching and learning about real people in the ancient world and the people who study them."

In the fifth installment of their new video series, our own Dr. Melissa Funke discusses theatre and mime in the ancient Mediterranean, including theatrical performance and staging, actors and mime characters, and the role of mime as a form of popular culture in diverse communities.
