Mycenaean Atlas Project

[First posted in AWOL 16 March 2018, updated 29 December 2019]

Mycenaean Atlas Project
The purpose of this web site is to provide accurate latitude and longitude coordinates for all the Early, Middle, and Late Helladic (Mycenaean) find sites both in Greece and in places which the Mycenaean culture touched. This site also provides some bibliographic information as well as times of occupation and the nature of the finds at the various sites. The main purpose is, however, to provide locational information.

Locational Data: Accuracy

Every effort has been made to confirm the exact location of each site. For a complete description of this parameter and of the concepts of Precision and Accuracy as they apply to this web site see this.

The Vergil project

[First posted in AWOL 10 August 2012, updated 28 December 2019]

The Vergil project: Resources for Students, Teachers, and Readers of Vergil
The Vergil Project is a resource for students, teachers, and readers of Vergil's Aeneid. It offers an on-line hypertext linked to interpretive materials of various kinds. These include basic information about grammar, syntax, and diction; several commentaries; an apparatus criticus; help with scansion; and other resources.

The text

The display text that appears on the left side of the screen is that of the old OCT by Hirtzel (1900), with modifications. Each word is linked to a variety of resources that can be selected from the sidebar. The text initially displayed is always the first twenty-five lines of the poem. The user can then navigate to another book and line number by using the two slider bars that appear at the top of the screen, above the text and resources.

The sidebar

The right side of the screen contains a sidebar that is divided into four sections. By default each of these sections is visible, but each can be hidden or reopened at the user's discretion by clicking on the icon ( or ) in the top left corner of each box.
  1. The Options section allows the user to customize the display. Choices include:
    • Displaythe text in units of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, or 1,000 lines.
    • Select from among the different kinds of resources. As a whole, these are available in three forms:
      • In-line textual aids are included within the text of the poem and are displayed in one of three ways:
        1. Modern punctuation is simply inserted into the primary text.
        2. Textual variantsappear as asterisks next to any word for which a variant reading (whether attested or conjectural) exists. Each different reading appears as a separate asterisk. Passing the cursor over these asterisks displays the alternate reading along with the sources that attest or endorse it.
        3. Natural vowel quantities replaces the original text with one that marks long and short vowel quantities. The individual words remain linked to other resources.
      • Mouse hover textual aid appears when the cursor is rolled over a particular word in the text
      • Sidebar resources are available in several areas that are arranged to the right of the text.
      Some resources are available in more than one of these forms so that users can consult them in the form that they find most convenient. Resources that involve displaying large amounts of text are generally available only as sidebar resources.
  2. The Reading assistance section contains basic information about grammar, syntax, and diction in the form of an approximate English equivalent for each word in context.

Release notes

Version 2.0

This is the first major upgrade to The Vergil Project since its original release. The most obvious feature of this release is the redesign of the user interface. New content features include additional analysis of gramamr and syntax, textual variants, natural vowel quantities, a more complete concordance function, the Servius commentary, and the translations of John Dryden (1697, a classic and somewhat free poetic rendering) and Theodore C. Williams (1910, also poetic but in a more modern idiom). These texts were digitized by The Perseus Digital Library. The textual variants listed here are based on the apparatus critici of the editions of R. A. B. Mynors' (the current OCT, 1969) and Mario Geymonat (Corpus Paravianum 1973). The new grammatical analysis is based on that of M. N. Wetmore's Index Verborum Vergilianus (1911), against which the older analysis has been checked.

Version 1.0

After some initial experimentation and proof of concept beginning in 1995, The Vergil Project was created by a group of secondary school, college, and university teachers and graduate students in a pair of sumer workshops held at the University of Pennsylvania in 1999 and 2000. During that time the text of Aeneid 1, 2, 4, 6, and other of the most commonly studied parts of the poem were analyzed grammaticaly and syntactically. In addition, these parts of the poem were provided with a basic glossary and with the elements of an original commentary and other resources.

LatinPerDiem: Daily Latin lessons in about four minutes, drawn from 2300 years of the corpus

[First posted in AWOL 17 February 2017, updated 26 December 2019]

LatinPerDiem: Daily Latin lessons in about four minutes, drawn from 2300 years of the corpus
How to use this site:
1. subscribe for daily updates Monday-Friday
2. Check out our resources page for help with pronouncing Latin and Greek, finding grammars and guides, and much more
3. Tell your friends and spread the word of simple, interesting Latin instruction with lots of variety.
Exemplum regulam praecedit – show them, don’t just tell them!
Our pedagogical philosophy is that people learn language best when they see real-life uses in context, not merely abstractions. That is why instances of Latin instruction are drawn from actual authors and texts, not manufactured exempla (with the exception of Fabule Faciles).
This site is the work of David C. Noe, Associate Prof. of Classics at Calvin College. Click here for his c.v.
What about the music? Where does all that fabulous, bluesy intro and outro music come from on the Moss Method promos, etc.? These are thanks to the  gracious generosity of musician extraordinaire and all around champ Ken Tamplin. Check out his Vocal Academy, where you can learn to “sing better than anyone else”.

The present project was developed in the context of the long-term project “Digitalization of the DFG (German Research Society) special subject fields”. It concentrates on the digitalization of literature not in public domain, predominantly in the field of humanities and social sciences with an emphasis on monographs.
In the first phase of the project, approx. 4700 titles of programme segments of the publishers Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Wilhelm Fink / Ferdinand Schöningh as well as Otto Sagner were digitized. In a second phase, further approx. 1750 titles are being included till 2014 by consecutively digitizing all monographs up to a defined ‘Moving Wall’ of three to five years to the current year of publication.
Corresponding arrangements with publishing houses, who act in agreement with their authors, enable the BSB to digitize works protected by copyright and to provide accessibility according to the guidelines of the DFG via Open Access.
The Website provides a full-text search of the entire collection or of the single subject collections. All titles are also accessible with the OPAC of the Bavarian State Library. The inclusion in professionally relevant virtual subject libraries is in preparation.
