Our warm welcome to the Umm el-Jimal Project website! Located in northern Jordan, Umm el-Jimal is home to almost two thousand years of fascinating history and culture—as well as a vibrant modern community. The best-preserved Byzantine town in the Southern Hauran region, archaeological investigation has been underway on location for over a century. This website is part of an ongoing international effort to understand Umm el-Jimal and its regional context from a holistic approach that integrates traditional academic research with cutting-edge technology and a deeply-rooted community perspective. We aim to make ummeljimal.org an evolving online hub for academic research, cultural preservation, sustainable tourism, and community development at Umm el-Jimal.

LIBRARY

The Umm el-Jimal Project's Library page is an evolving digital repository for journal articles, book chapters, reference works, and other publications and printed resources related to ancient and modern Umm el-Jimal. It includes academic and popular material about Umm el-Jimal, beginning from the site's modern era of research with Howard Butler's Princeton expedition all the way through the project partners' most recent work. Several of the works are out of print or otherwise unavailable. All items are made available to download for personal use only, and if under copyright remain the intellectual property of their author(s) and publisher.
The project's main published work, Umm el-Jimal: A Frontier Town and its Landscape in Northern Jordan, Volume 1 (1998), is only available directly from the Journal of Roman Archaeology. However, the book is still in print; purchase inquiries are welcome at jra [at] journalofromanarch [dot] com.

Open Access Journal: Heritage for Peace: Damage Newsletter

Heritage for Peace: Damage Newsletter
http://www.heritageforpeace.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/1H4P-980x130.jpg
Heritage for Peace is a non-profit organization whose mission is to support all Syrians in their efforts to protect and safeguard Syria’s cultural heritage during the armed conflict.
As an international group of heritage workers we believe that cultural heritage, and the protection thereof, can be used as a common ground for dialogue and therefore as a tool to enhance peace. We call on all Syrians of any religion or ethnicity to enter into a dialogue and work together to safeguard their mutual heritage.

    New Open Access Journal: OZeAN: Online Zeitschrift zur Antiken Numismatik

    OZeAN: Online Zeitschrift zur Antiken Numismatik
    Kommunikation und wissenschaftlicher Austausch finden heute digital und zunehmend online statt. Die Zahl der Museen und wissenschaftlichen Institutionen, die ihre Bestände online stellen, wächst täglich. Über die digitale Erschließung von Münzsammlungen und über digitale Fundmünzpublikationen liegt eine Fülle an Material vor, dessen weitergehende wissenschaftliche Auswertung großenteils noch aussteht.

    In den letzten Jahren ist zwar eine Reihe neuer numismatischer Fachzeitschriften gegründet worden, die auch online zur Verfügung stehen, doch vom Charakter sind sie immer noch reine Printmedien. So fehlt dort in den meisten Beiträgen die direkte Verknüpfung mit nationalen und internationalen Projekten mittels der Linked Open Data. Die Vernetzung mit numismatischen Projekten, etwa AFE, KENOM, IKMK, NUMiD, NV BW oder nomisma.org und den darin eingebundenen Datasets, ist dabei genauso wichtig wie die Verlinkung mit Quellen anderer Bereiche, etwa der Archäologie oder der Geschichtswissenschaften.

    Ebenso wird in vielen Publikationen die Einbindung von 3D Grafiken und hochauflösenden Fotos sowie von Audio- und Videodokumenten oft vermisst. Für Münzstempeluntersuchungen werden immer öfter 3D-Scans herangezogen, die es ermöglichen, auch kleinste Details vergrößert und von allen Seiten zu betrachten. Prägetechnische Experimente können in Onlinemedien zum besseren Verständnis mit kurzen Filmen dargestellt werden. Mit Hilfe von Tondokumenten lassen sich beispielsweise die unterschiedlichen Klänge von gegossenen und geprägten Münzen verdeutlichen.
    Bd. 1 (2019)
    Im ersten Band der neuen numismatischen Online-Zeitschrift werden wissenschaftliche Aufsätze, Materialvorlagen sowie Berichte über neuartige Möglichkeiten der Materialerfassung und -aufnahme veröffentlicht.

    Perseus Digital Library News: Beyond Translation -- new possibilities for reading in a digital age (DH Level 3)

    WORKING DRAFT
    Gregory Crane
    Professor of Classics
    Tufts University
    August 29, 2019

    I am writing to report that the Perseus Digital Library had the honor of receiving support for an NEH Digital Humanities Level 3 Project: “Beyond Translation -- new possibilities for reading in a digital age.” While this is just one project with limited funding, it reflects a larger potential shift for the study of Ancient Greek and other languages. When I began my career as a graduate student, more than a generation ago, specialists in languages such as Ancient Greek could only direct full scholarship at other specialists. Now, however, we are in a position to frame our understanding of such languages in a form that makes sources immediately accessible to non-specialists. From my perspective, this reflects a fundamental shift in the audience and the realizable goals for those of us privileged to earn a living as specialists on earlier languages from the human record.

    The basic premise of the funded project is simple: the rapid evolution of reading environments has begun to open up a third path for reading, one situated between mastery of a language and dependence upon translations. For me personally, the need for such a third path weighs on me every time I log into Netflix and confront offerings not only in French, German, (various forms of) Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin and other widely taught languages but also in languages such as Turkish, Korean, Malaysian, and Hindi. Even if I had access to classes in each one of these languages, I would never have time to master them -- and there is always another language. ..

    Kerameikos.org: defining the intellectual concepts of pottery

    [First posted in AWOL 20 October 2014, updated 29 August 2019]

    Kerameikos.org
    http://kerameikos.org/ui/images/banner.jpg
    Kerameikos.org is a collaborative project dedicated to defining the intellectual concepts of pottery following the tenets of linked open data and the formulation of an ontology for representing and sharing ceramic data across disparate data systems. While the project is focused primarily on the definition of concepts within Greek black- and red-figure pottery, Kerameikos.org is extensible toward the definition of concepts in other fields of pottery studies.
    See the github account at https://github.com/kerameikos, which contains repositories for the RDF data and the publication framework. This framework could be applied to other linked data thesauri.

    Die altnubischen Dörfer Bāb und Al-Ğūwānī

    Die altnubischen Dörfer Bāb und Al-Ğūwānī

    AbstractThe presented volume aims to carry out a socio-cultural case study focusing on two abandoned Nubian villages in Upper Egypt, which are regarding their formation and abandonment closely connected with the construction of the British Dam south of Aswan and the following floods around 1900. Besides the documentation of architecture and associated find material, the special nature of the research strategy involved a close cooperation with the descendents of the village inhabitants and other Nubians still living in the sourroundings of the affected area.Through the interdisciplinary research strategy and the combination of a variety of methods in the fields of Archaeology, Building research and Social Anthropology, standard interpretations could be reflected upon, questioned and if necessary corrected, wherefore this study makes an important contribution to the discussion of cultural formation processes and their transformation into the archaeological record as well as bringing insights into the debate on context interpretation of material culture.

    Factoids: A site that introduces Factoid Prosopography

    Factoids: A site that introduces Factoid Prosopography
    Factoid Prosopography is an approach to representing prosopographical research that centres on the idea of the “factoid”.  It is an approach that had its beginnings in the Centre for Computing in the Humanities at King’s College London (now Department of Digital Humanities) in the mid 1990s, but which has continued to be refined and modified there since then through a number of historically independent prosopographies.  Furthermore, factoid (or at least factoid-like) thinking has been taken up in varying degrees by other individuals and projects.
    If judged by the number of digital historians who seem interested in it, the idea of factoids in prosopography has proven to be a useful one for thinking about data-oriented, highly structured, prosopography.  However, it does seem that beyond a general sense of what a factoid might be there has been little agreement outside of CCH/DDH about what a prosopography in the factoid style should actually be like.  This site is meant to promote some thinking about this issue from the pragmatic perspective that has developed by one of the people at CCH/DDH who has worked on factoid prosopographies for many years – John Bradley (the author of this site). It does this by
    1. presenting a brief document that describes what the author thinks factoid prosopography is all about. (see here),
    2. providing links to the various projects that CCH/DDH and John Bradley have been involved in that describe themselves as factoid prosopographies (see here), and
    3. providing a first attempt at a formal ontology that is meant to capture some of the important formalisms that have underpinned the CCH/DDH prosopographies (see here).
     

    Das altägyptische Totenbuch: Ein digitales Textzeugenarchiv

     [First posted in AWOL 8 June 2014, updated 28 August 2019]

    Das altägyptische Totenbuch: Ein digitales Textzeugenarchiv
    http://totenbuch.awk.nrw.de/img/TEASER-Totengericht.png
    Trotz der frühen, intensiven Erforschung in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts ist die Sammlung der Totenbuchtexte und deren Quellen so zahlreich, die Fragestellungen an das Material so facettenreich und die Aussichten auf Forschungsergebnisse, die über den Bereich des Totenbuchs hinaus von Bedeutung sind, so ertragreich, dass die geleistete Vorarbeit nur als Ausgangsbasis dienen kann. Schließlich beschränkte sich Naville auf die Bearbeitung der Manuskripte des Neuen Reichs (1550-1070 v. Chr.), obwohl sie heute weniger als ein Vierteil der bekannten Quellen ausmachen, wenngleich sie qualitativ am hochwertigsten sind. Außerdem wurde seine schwerpunktmäßig textbezogene synoptische Aufarbeitung dem Variantenreichtum der Totenbücher hinsichtlich Format und Vignetten nicht gerecht.
    Deshalb wendeten sich zunächst in den 1920er Jahren, später erneut in den 1950ern und in einer dritten Phase in den 1970er und 80er Jahren Göttinger Ägyptologen intensiv dem Totenbuch zu. Zur letzten Gruppe zählten neben Wolfhart Westendorf auch Ursula Rößler-Köhler und Irmtraut Munro. Erstere widmete sich dabei intensiv dem zentralen Spruch Tb 17; letztere konzentrierte sich auf die Handschriften der 18. Dynastie.
    Anfang der 1990er Jahre ermöglichte ein Ruf an die Universität Bonn Ursula Rößler-Köhler die Fortsetzung dieser Arbeiten und den Aufbau einer neuen Forschergruppe, dem sogenannten Totenbuch-Projekt. In ihren Berufungsverhandlungen konnte sie eine zweijährige Anschubfinanzierung erreichen. Anschließend förderte die Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) das Projekt ab 1994 zehn Jahre lang weiter. Während dieser Phase war auch die Kölner Ägyptologie unter der Co-Projektleitung von Heinz-Josef Thissen beteiligt. Im Jahr 2004 übernahm schließlich die Nordrhein-Westfälische Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Künste das Projekt für weitere neun Jahre.
