MEDINA: Mediterranean network for the valorization and fruition of inscriptions preserved in museums project
http://arabiantica.humnet.unipi.it/typo3temp/pics/c0d38840d4.jpg
In May 2012, the research group of the Dipartimento di Scienze Storiche del Mondo Antico, directed by prof. Alessandra Avanzini, began the two-years project MEDINA - Mediterranean network for the valorization and fruition of inscriptions preserved in museums project.

This project was selected to be funded by the European Union in 2008 within the ENPI CBCMED programme - Cross-Border Cooperation in the Mediterranean Sea Basin. 
This programme promotes the sustainable and harmonious cooperation process at the Mediterranean Basin level by dealing with the common challenges and enhancing its endogenous potential.

The main objective of MEDINA is to promote, through innovative means, the knowledge and dissemination of Phoenician and Nabataean inscriptions and artefacts preserved in the Beirut National Museum and in the Museum of Jordanian Heritage at Yarmouk University.  
In addition to managing the project's activities and progress, the University of Pisa équipe, within this project, will supervise the digital cataloguing of the inscriptions in Jordan and Lebanon, and will catalogue the South Arabian texts preserved in the Museo d'Arte Orientale of Rome. The objects catalogued in this collection will be able to be consulted in a specific section of the DASI web site.
 
During the first year of the project, the Pisa équipe has also the important task to train and teach students how to perform digital cataloguing. 

As MEDINA project aims to improve the communication means of the involved museums, new strategies will be studied by the University of Pisa, in collaboration with the Yarmouk University and architects expert in museology. A new space will be thought and realized where the neglected and silent artistic finds can be highlighted and revalued as main instruments of knowledge.

A importancia arqueolóxica e o interese histórico do Castro de Viladonga, así como a cantidade e calidade dos materiais aparecidos nas escavacións aquí feitas desde 1972, e a necesidade de investigalos e expoñelos no seu propio contexto, fixeron que en 1983 o Ministerio de Cultura crease o MUSEO DO CASTRO DE VILADONGA, nun edificio que fora construído nos anos setenta. O seu acondicionamento, instalación e montaxe tivo lugar en 1985-1986, e o Museo abriu ó público en novembro deste último ano. A partir de 1990 a súa xestión quedou transferida á Xunta de Galicia. Entre 1992 e 1994 fixéronse unhas importantes obras de reforma e ampliación coa construción dun novo edificio a continuación do xa existente, coa subseguinte dotación, nos anos posteriores, da infraestrutura e do persoal necesario para o desenvolvemento de todas as súas funcións museísticas e patrimoniais, ligadas ó propio xacemento castrexo e galaico-romano.

Palmyrena: City, Hinterland and Caravan trade between Occident and Orient

Palmyrena: City, Hinterland and Caravan trade between Occident and Orient
Palmyrena: City, Hinterland and Caravan Trade between Orient and Occident is a four year (2009-2012) joint Syrian-Norwegian research project on the relationship between the ancient city of Palmyra and its hinterland. The project is funded by the Norwegian Research Council. Palmyra is situated at the oasis of Tadmor in the Syrian semi-desert, between the fertile valleys of the Orontes and the Euphrates. Through most of its pre-modern history, the village of Tadmor had a population ranging into the hundreds or thousands. In the first centuries CE the settlement grew into a city with an estimated population of 150.000 - 200.000, establishing it as one of the largest and most important cities of the Roman Empire in the mid-third century. A city the size of Palmyra depended on large quantities of water, food, fuel and building materials. In the ancient period most of these resources had to be secured within the distance of a few days travel. In the case of Palmyra, these surroundings were constituted by the precarious environment of arid steppes and mountains, inhabited by nomadic pastoralists both before and during the peak of Palmyrene urbanity. An important aim of our project is to understand how the oasis-city utilized its territory for agriculture, pastoralism, water harvesting, transport and defense. This is the subject of a joint Syrian-Norwegian archaeological survey between Palmyra and Isriyeh. The first season was conducted in 2008, and the survey will also cover pre-historic and Islamic periods...

This blog aims to gather links about electronic publications dealing with the Black sea in Antiquity.  The Pontos Euxeinos bibliography is quite huge, and it’s not so easy to find some of the local publications. I hope these links can help you to travel around the Black sea archaeology. I try to tag all the posts by geographical key words.
