Stemmaweb - a collection of tools for analysis of collated texts

Stemmaweb - a collection of tools for analysis of collated texts
Stemmaweb is a set of tools that has grown out of the Tree of Texts, a CREA ("creative research") project funded by the KU Leuven. The tools were developed variously within the project, on behalf of the project by Shadowcat Systems, and in collaboration with the Interedition project. The source code for all tools and associated libraries is available on Github.

All tools are free for scholarly (nonprofit) use and adaptation. Although some data may be viewed publicly without a user account, use of the tools with your own data is possible only by registering as a user. You may log in with a Google account or another OpenID account, or you may register with a local username and password for use on the site. The Tree of Texts project and KU Leuven retain rights to uploaded text traditions only insofar as it is necessary to store and back them up, display them according to the stated preferences, and analyze them with the tools provided and linked.

vici.org: De Romeinse kaart

vici.org: De Romeinse kaart
Vici.org brengt het Romeinse verleden in kaart.
Vici.org helpt historisch geïnteresseerden en toeristen het verleden opnieuw te beleven, op die plekken waar het zich afgespeeld heeft. Vici.org biedt een platform waarop erfgoed zichtbaar gemaakt kan worden.

Creative Commons

Vici.org is geïnspireerd door Wikipedia. Gelijk Wikipedia is alle content beschikbaar onder de Creative Commons Naamsvermelding/Gelijk delen-licentie. Iedereen wordt uitgenodigd via Vici.org zijn of haar kennis van het Romeinse verleden te delen.

Toekomstplannen

De huidige versie van Vici.org biedt basale functionaliteit en is in veel opzichten nog niet af. De volgende lijst geeft inzicht in enige beoogde verbeteringen.
  • Aanvullende en verbeterde vertalingen.
  • Een helppagina of helpfunctionaliteit.
  • Een voorziening om oudere versies van de teksten en data te kunnen bekijken.
  • Biedt de mogelijkheid aan gebruikers om lijnen als wegen en aquaducten toe te kunnen voegen.
  • Biedt de mogelijkheid om afbeeldingen toe te voegen.
Vici.org is gestart als een privé-initiatief. De ambitie is om van Vici.org de grensoverschrijdende portal te maken voor al het locatie-gebaseerde Romeinse erfgoed. Wil je meehelpen aan de uitbouw van Vici.org, op wat voor een manier dan ook, laat het me weten!

Mapping Mediterranean Lands (MEDMAPS)

Mapping Mediterranean Lands (MEDMAPS)
http://www.dlir.org/templates/dlir/images/dlir_logo2.png
Mapping Mediterranean Lands (MEDMAPS) showcases sixteen important early maps and related information from the collections of American centers for international research in the Mediterranean region. As part of the Digital Library for International Research, under the aegis of the Council of American Overseas Research Centers, this three-year project completed a comprehensive survey of maps in the collections of American research centers in the Mediterranean area and created web-accessible bibliographic records. In addition, this site includes information about unique maps and illustrated plates in atlases and other publications relating to archaeological excavation and exploration.

Mapping Mediterranean Lands is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of State, Education and Cultural Affairs (ECA), 2002-2005. The three-year survey was conducted by the project's Head Cartographer, Leonora Navari, in cooperation with the American centers for international research. Ms. Navari also wrote the exhibition essays and other project notes.

The Natacha Rambova Archive

The Natacha Rambova Archive, Yale University
Born Winifred Kimball Shaughnessy on January 19, 1897, Natacha Rambova pursued a number of diverse careers, in each achieving considerable — and in some cases lasting — success. Unfortunately, her true contributions to the field of Egyptology are not as well known as her other pursuits. Natacha Rambova’s legacy also lives on in her scholarly archive, generously donated by Edward L. Ochsenschlager in memory of Donald P. Hansen (1931–2007) to the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Yale University. The physical transfer of the archive was greatly facilitated by Dr. Christine Lilyquist of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the gift was officially recognized at an event entitled “Natacha Rambova’s Egypt,” which took place on April 17, 2009 at Yale University.

Rambova’s unpublished manuscripts and over 10,000 additional items, including photographs, drawings, notes, and letters, form the Natacha Rambova Archive, housed at Yale University. The diversity of the textual and visual material spans Rambova’s wide-ranging interests, which vary tremendously in time and space. Rambova collected photos, drawings, and paintings not only from Egypt but also Mesopotamia, India, Greece, Italy, Cambodia, Tibet, China, Mexico, Peru, Ireland, and England; the photographs and line drawings within the archive span the period from the fourth millennium BCE through to the nineteenth century CE. The Natacha Rambova Archive is a small, yet significant, piece of the history of Egyptology, and will be made accessible to any scholar seeking information about her life and research.

Ancient World in Open Access Institutional Repositories

[Originally posted 10/5/09. Most recently updated 24 September 2012]

It is increasingly the case that scholars in ancient studies are depositing copies of their publications in institutional repositories. Some examples are:
Are you doing the same? Do you know of others doing this? Let me know, and I'll add them.

Scholars who do not have access to Institutional Repositories for their own work, and who wish to share their scholarship openly might consider the opportunities offered by  Academia.edu.

A digital base map of the Greco-Roman world

As announced on various lists:
Dear all,

Colleagues may be interested to learn of a new online resource that is now available and free to use.

Some of you may have been aware of the ongoing efforts in the Digital Classics community to use digital technology to visualise and help understanding of the geography of the ancient world. Projects such as Pleiades (http://pleiades.stoa.org/), a gazetteer and graph of ancient places, for example, or Harvard's Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization (http://darmc.harvard.edu/icb/icb.do), which is a layered historical atlas, or Antiquity À-la-carte (http://bioapps.its.unc.edu/projects/awmc/alacarte/carte.html), an online GIS application.

Today the Pelagios team are pleased to announce the latest digital map, built on these previous initiatives and the magisterial Barrington Atlas. What marks this work out is the fact that its map tiles can be used as a background layer for use in a fashion similar to modern mapping applications like Google Maps. We are releasing these map tiles under a CC-BY license, which means that anyone is allowed not only to browse the map but also to use the tiles for presenting their own data or for building on them their own applications.

The basic background map (using Google Maps API) can be accessed here: http://pelagios.dme.ait.ac.at/maps/greco-roman/
Information about the making of the map, sources of geodata, and a legend to the symbols, can be found here: http://pelagios.dme.ait.ac.at/maps/greco-roman/about.html
And for a fully interactive implementation of the digital map, which shows one of the many ways it might be used, see here: francia.ahlfeldt.se/imperium.php

Work on creating these digital map tiles, made possible by the Pelagios project, has been carried out by Johan Åhlfeldt of Regnum Francorum Online (http://www.francia.ahlfeldt.se/index.php). We would like to thank Johan for this massive undertaking, our funders JISC, and the many other people in the Digital Classics community (esp. those at Pleiades) for making this possible.

For those of you who would like more information about the work carried out, Johan has blogged about it here: http://pelagios-project.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/a-digital-map-of-roman-empire.html. We see this initiative as part of an ongoing collaborative enterprise and we make every effort to improving this as a resource. In due course, the Pelagios partners will be populating the map with links to online resources related to the ancient places represented. In the meantime we welcome feedback.

best wishes

elton

Diyala Archaeological Database (DiyArDa)

Diyala Archaeological Database (DiyArDa)
An Oriental Institute / University of Chicago Publication and Research Project
Supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities Division for Preservation and Access
The Diyala Database, for the first time, publishes all archaeological materials from the Diyala Expedition, one of the most important excavation projects ever undertaken in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq). 

The current version of this database, using OracleTM as a backend, represents a partial release of these data. Future releases will add and update object descriptions and provide new interfaces with additional links to site photographs, field notes, diary entries, and architectural plans.

http://diyalaproject.uchicago.edu/pls/apex/DIYALA.diyala_image?p_ref_item=1684114

Significance of Excavations: Located in the lower Diyala river basin northeast of Baghdad, excavations at the sites of Tell Agrab, Tell Asmar (ancient Eshnunna), Ishchali (ancient Neribtum), and Khafaje (ancient Tutub), have provided some of the most comprehensive data for Mesopotamian archaeology and chronology. Undertaken by the University of Chicago‚ Oriental Institute (1930-1937) and by the University of Pennsylvania (1938-1939), these projects were of an unprecedented scale. Up to 25% of the total area of each site were excavated, uncovering not only the remains of palaces and temples, but also of houses, manufacturing facilities, streets, and urban defensive systems, with some soundings extending as deep as 16 meters below the mounds‚present surfaces. Covering the time between the late Uruk period and the end of the Old Babylonian period (3000-1700 BC), the Diyala material represents a crucial part of Mesopotamia's early history during which large territorial states emerged, cities grew to unprecedented sizes, and the cuneiform writing system emerged. 

Significance of Artifacts: Over 15,000 artifacts, representing all aspects of public and private life, were excavated carefully and recorded systematically: statues, votive plaques, seals, pottery vessels, tools, weapons, jewelry, cosmetic sets, weights, figurines, inlays, toys, and almost 2,000 tablets inscribed with cuneiform inscriptions. Following find divisions between the expedition and Iraq's Department of Antiquities these artifacts entered the collections of the Iraq Museum (Baghdad), the Oriental Institute Museum (Chicago), and the University Museum (Philadelphia). In spite of a comprehensive publication program that resulted in nine volumes‚four on architectural complexes and four on key artifact groups (sculpture, seals, pottery) some 75% of these finds (over 11,000 items) unfortunately remained unpublished to the present day. This is regrettable since this corpus is one of the largest artifact assemblages from a controlled excavation undertaken in Iraq, hence remaining a vital chronological backbone for Mesopotamia's early history. 

The Project: Launched in 1992 the Diyala Database Project will, for the first time, publish all archaeological data from these excavations in an integrated database. Supported by grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities Division for Preservation and Access (1994-1999, 2004-2010), the University of Chicago's Women Board (1997), and by the University of Chicago's Provost Innovative Technology Grant (1999, 2000) archival materials, object registers, field diaries, photographs, plans, and correspondence were scanned, object descriptions entered into database tables, and new photographs of artifacts taken at the Oriental Institute Museum.
