Day of Archaeology 2012

Day of Archaeology 2012: A Day in the Life of Archaeologists
Day of Archaeology

About the Project

Have you ever wondered what archaeologists really get up to? Is it all just digging or is there a lot more to it? The Day of Archaeology project aims to give you a window into the daily lives of archaeologists from all over the world.

Day of Archaeology 2011

The first ever Day of Archaeology in 2011 had over 400 contributing archaeologists, from those working in the field through to specialists working in laboratories and behind computers, and their posts chronicled what they did on one day, July 29th 2011. This date was chosen to coincide with the Festival of British Archaeology, which runs annually in July.

View the past entries, or explore using the categories at the top of each page.

How it all began

Day of Archaeology was born after a Twitter conversation between PhD students and project organisers, Lorna Richardson and Matt Law, during the third annual Day of Digital Humanities in March 2011. They thought it would be interesting and fun to organise something similar to the Day of DH for those working or volunteering in (or studying) archaeology around the world. Thanks to some very generous offers of time, support, web design know how, and server space from digitally-minded colleagues (the server space from Daniel Pett of the British Museum), an organising ‘committee’ of sorts was formed, and the idea quickly became reality.

Inscriptiones Graecae in Croatia Repertae

Digitalizacija antičkih grčkih natpisa s područja Hrvatske - Inscriptiones Graecae in Croatia Repertae (IGCR)
Nino Zubović
Nino Zubovic's pilot project, which received startup assistance from the Department of Classical Philology of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Zagreb, aims to create a digital, EpiDoc corpus of the Greek inscriptions attested and preserved on the territory of present-day Croatia. Methodologically, it shares goals with the U.S. Epigraphy Project, but excludes Latin inscriptions as these are being researched for CIL by the Department of Archaeology.

Online Genealogy of the Seleucids

Alex McAuley
Department of History & Classical Studies
McGill University
In the haphazard patchwork that is our understanding of Hellenistic genealogy, the Seleucid dynasty stands out as particularly threadbare.

Despite the wealth of recent scholarship on countless facets of the Seleucid World, the genealogy and descent of the Seleucids themselves has received only sporadic and fragmentary attention.

This site has been created in the hope of producing and presenting as near a comprehensive stemma of the Dynasty as possible. Ancient literary evidence, numismatics, epigraphic remains, and contemporary scholarship have been combined with my own judgement and reasoning in (numerous) cases of controversy.

In the interest of objectivity I have erred on the side of conservatism; all hypotheses and conjectures are indicated as such. For the sake of convenience and accessibility, I have presented all Greek names in their latinized forms.
