Status in other countries is unknown. Check public domain laws in your country if you do not live in United States. Most images are older than 1928 or ancient sources. Set Information: This set includes images that range from 1" to 8" in color, grayscale, and B/W. Due the nature of the images, most clip-art pieces are available in only one version. Images are drawn, painted, or photographs. Some images are taken from ancient sources, others from academic. All images are 300 dpi, png. Themes: This set showcases a variety of themes including but not limited to architecture, aquaduct, people, generals, vases, columns, patterns, coins, decoration, illustrations of myths, Socrates, Remus and Romulus, and more! For more detail on included themes,download the preview file. Background: While viewing public domain images for references, I found myself in awe of the beauty, precision, and uniqueness of these spectacular images. It seemed to be a shame that many of these timeless images would go unseen when they had so much to offer students and teachers. While there were many fantastic pictures available, most needed a variety of edits and touch-up work to be suited for reuse. I decided it would be worthwhile to restore and share my "Found Treasures" in a format that would be better suited for projects.
