Search helpHow to use the search engine
To use the search facility you have to type your search terms in the entry box to the right.
The search facility is very simple. It will locate any document or photograph that matches any of the search terms. Results are ranked according to how well they match. Higher ranks are given when more search terms are found, when they are found close to the start of the text and when they are found repeatedly.
Words of three or fewer letters are silently ignored. This means that a search for "ara pacis" will search for "pacis" only. Words that match more than half the entries in the database are also ignored.
There is currently no support for composite or complex searches.
