Digital Classicist wiki Sprint 31 May

Digital Classicist wiki Sprint
As you may recall, the first Tuesday of every month sees interested List members getting together for an hour or two (in so-called online "sprints") to work on improving the content of the Digital Classicist wiki ( For this month, however, this event is taking place on the last Tuesday, i.e. 31 May, and is dedicated to a particular theme: ancient geography.

Anyone interested in participating should:

1. Request (if you don't already have one) an editing account on the wiki, by getting in touch in advance with Gabriel Bodard ([log in to unmask]). 
2. Join, anytime between 16–18h London time (= 17–19CEST = 11–13EDT = 10–12CDT etc.), the #Digiclass chatroom  (instructions here:, where you can work synchronously with colleagues (or by yourself) to edit or create articles in the DigitalClassicist wiki to do with resources on ancient geography - the geospatial data themselves and the tools for analysing them - created or curated by individuals, projects and/or institutions.

(Of course, you are free to join us to work on other parts of the wiki too!)

Please do extend this invitation to any interested individuals and parties.

We look forward to improving our content with you!

With best wishes,
The Digital Classicist team
