News from the CDLI: Fondation Martin Bodmer cuneiform collection

Fondation Martin Bodmer cuneiform collection in CDLI
The Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI), in partnership with the Fondation MartinBodmer, Cologny, Switzerland (Bodmer Museum, ), is pleased to announce the addition of new digital content to its web offerings. 

Though modest in numbers, the twenty-six select cuneiform artifacts in the Bodmer Museum in fact cover a very broad swath of Babylonian history, ranging from five proto-cuneiform tablets from the late 4th millennium BC, through Early Dynastic royal and legal inscriptions (ca. 2800-2400 BC), an Old Akkadian votive stone vase dedicated to the divinized Naram-Sin (ca. 2300 BC), a group of eight Ur III accounts (ca. 2050 BC), two 2nd millennium administrative and royal inscriptions, down to a barrel text of the great neo-Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar II (600 BC). 

Facilitated by the kind assistance of University of Geneva graduate student Émilie Pagé-Perron, one of us (Vacin) was able to scan the artifacts as part of a digitization mission to the Musées d’art et d’histoire Genève (currently in preparation for web release), and the results of the Bodmer effort have now been added to CDLI pages and are viewable through a dedicated Bodmer web page

The Ur III account FMB 39.2 is assigned to University of Geneva graduate student Emmert Clevenstine. The majority of the remaining artifacts, including seven further Ur III texts, appear to be unpublished, and we welcome publication references, or notices of interest in publishing these texts by specialists, sent to us directly or the CDLI

The imaging at Cologny and post-capture processing at UCLA were made possible by funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; they are part of the on-going mission of CDLI to ensure the long-term digital preservation of ancient inscriptions on cuneiform tablets, and, in furtherance of humanities research, to provide free global access to all available text artifact data. 

For the CDLI and the Bodmer: Ludek Vacin, Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin Sylviane Messerli, Foundation Martin Bodmer, Cologny, Switzerland.

Open Access Journal: Arkeos

[First posted in AWOL 21 March 2011. Updated  24 December 2011]

Arkeos : Revista Electronica de Arqueologia
ISSN: 1819-0421
http://mileto.pucp.edu.pe/arkeos/templates/plantillaArkeos/images_plantilla/logo_arkeos_ov.jpg
Arkeos, revista electrónica de arqueología, busca crear un espacio de debate de temas arqueológicos, análisis y sobre todo difusión de los estudios realizados por los estudiantes y egresados de la Especialidad de Arqueología de la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú; a través de las convocatorias para la publicación se busca  incentivar la investigación en los jóvenes profesionales de la PUCP, así como el generar espacios críticos para la discusión y el intercambio de información.

Esta publicación tiene como meta captar la atención tanto del medio académico como del público no especializado. Se busca el acercamiento al público en general, con el objetivo de incentivar el interés en la práctica arqueológica debido a la importancia que ésta tiene en la educación, la defensa del patrimonio y la construcción de identidades, entre otros.

En el ámbito especializado, Arkeos busca crear redes de comunicación  e intercambio de información entre los estudiantes y profesionales de arqueología que desarrollan sus actividades en el medio local; además, dará a conocer en el ámbito internacional los avances y resultados de las más recientes investigaciones desarrolladas en el Perú por los profesionales de la PUCP.

Actualmente, los espacios de difusión, intercambio de información y debate de temas arqueológicos son pocos, y en la mayoría de estos casos llegan a un público limitado debido al alcance de las publicaciones. En algunos casos inclusive están concebidos para sólo un sector del público, sea éste especializado o no. Arkeos busca abarcar una mayor diversidad de intereses, y sobre todo hacer uso de las ventajas que ofrecen las ediciones electrónicas en cuanto a difusión y manejo de la información.
Arkeos se convierte además en herramienta para estimular la investigación y la publicación en los jóvenes estudiantes y profesionales de arqueología, complementando su desarrollo profesional.

Online Exhibition: Nicholas V. Artamonoff Collection

Nicholas V. Artamonoff Collection
http://icfa.doaks.org/collections/artamonoff/archive/square_thumbnails/34ac1be83fcb453c02b4aed4b3af24c3.jpg

The Nicholas V. Artamonoff Collection includes 543 photographs taken in Istanbul and five archaeological sites in Western Turkey (Ephesus, Hierapolis, Laodicea on the Lycus, Pergamum, Priene) from 1935 to 1945. The high quality photographs are of great value as they show buildings, sites, and objects that no longer exist or are in a better state of preservation than today. As Ernst Kitzinger (a former director of Dumbarton Oaks) informed Artamonoff himself in a letter of December 13, 1962, the collection has “great documentary value […] because of the subsequent vicissitudes that have befallen some of the monuments concerned."

The Image Collections and Fieldwork Archives (ICFA) of Dumbarton Oaks holds the original negatives of these photographs. They were acquired on July 11, 1962, through the support of Robert Van Nice, a Research Associate at Dumbarton Oaks who had worked in Istanbul conducting a large scale survey of the architecture of Hagia Sophia. Since coming to Dumbarton Oaks, Artamonoff’s photographs have been used in publications and research by many distinguished scholars...

    About the 3D Models The 3D models provided for each artifact are available for download in three formats: VRML, 3D PDF, and OBJ. The models provided for the OBJ format are available in original quality or "high resolution" as well as reduced quality or "low-resolution." The models provided for the VRML and 3D PDF formats are only available in low-resolution only. The file size of the high resolution models ranges from 50-100mb and is determined largely by the artifact size and original scan resolution. It is not uncommon for some of the larger, more detailed vessels to have more than 1,000,000 triangles in the original model. The original, high resolution models are provided to facilitate detailed metric analysis using one of the free data viewers suggested below.

    The file size for the reduced quality or "low resolution" models ranges from 2-5mb. Most of the low resolution models have been reduced to ~25,000 triangles unless the original high resolution model contained less than 25,000 triangles in which case the low resolution model was reduced to half the original model size. The low resolution models were created to facilitate a 'quick view' of each artifact and are provided for visualization purposes.

    VRML Format and Free VRML Viewers
    VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is a standard format for representing 3D models. VRML is a text-based format and was designed largely for the display of 3D graphics on the web. In fact, most VRML viewers including the ones listed here interface directly with your web browser (although stand alone applications are available)...

    New Book from the Oriental Institute: Perspectives on Ptolemaic Thebes

    Announced today:

    book cover

    SAOC 65.

    Perspectives on Ptolemaic Thebes
    Occasional Proceedings of the Theban Workshop.


    Peter F. Dorman and Betsy M. Bryan, eds.

    The manuscript consists of seven papers presented at the Theban Workshop, 2006. Within the temporal and spatial boundaries indicated by the title, the subjects of the papers are extremely diverse, ranging from models of culture-history (Manning and Moyer), to studies of specific administrative offices (Arlt), a single statue type (Albersmeier), inscriptions in a single temple (DiCerbo/Jasnow, and McClain), and inscriptions of a single king (Ritner). Nonetheless, all the papers are significant contributions to scholarship, presenting new interpretations and conclusions. Two papers (DiCerbo/Jasnow and McClain) are useful preliminary reports on long-term projects. The cross-references in Arlt and Albersmeier’s and in Manning’s and Moyer’s papers attest to value added by presentation at the workshop.
