Professor Small is a classical archaeologist and art historian who specializes in iconography and Etruscan studies. She excavated for three seasons at Murlo (Poggio Civitate), an archaic Etruscan site near Siena. For twenty-one years (1976) she was the Director of the U.S. Center of the Lexicon Iconographicum Mythologiae Classicae. She has published widely on Etruscan art, iconography, and classics topics, such as memory and literacy, as well as issues related to the computer. Most recently she has been working on cognitive aspects of classical antiquity. She is currently working on optics and illusionism in classical art.
