Virtual World Heritage Lab

 3D has become a new and powerful form of scholarly expression and communication. The mission of the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory is to apply these new tools not only as interactive illustrations but also as heuristic instruments of discovery. The scope of our interests – as implied by the phrase “World Heritage” – includes the entire human record. The focus of our investigations, as is suggested by the phrase “Virtual World” – is the 3D scientific simulation and how it can make possible experiences and experiments that – short of time travel – would otherwise not be possible.

Current Projects

The uffizi Digitization Project

The Virtual World Heritage Laboratory (VWHL), based in in the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing, in collaboration with partners at the Politecnico di Milano and the University of Florence will undertake the 3D digitization of the complete collection of Greek and Roman sculpture in the Uffizi, Pitti Palace, and Boboli Gardens on behalf of the Gallerie degli Uffizi. Totaling some 1,250 works of art, it is the third largest collection of its kind in an Italian state museum.

Digital Hadrian’s Villa Project

From 2007 to 2012 The Virtual World Heritage Laboratory created a 3D digital model of Hadrian’s Villa, a World Heritage site located in Tivoli (Italy), as it appeared toward the end of the lifetime of the emperor Hadrian (AD 76-138).

The Digital Sculpture Project

The Digital Sculpture Project 3D digital modeling often encounters a barrier when confronted with the kind of complex geometry that characterizes most sculpture. Through its Digital Sculpture Project, the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory is pioneering new solutions and applications

The Digital Atzompa Project

The Atzompa Project is a collaboration between INAH and the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory (VWHL). The primary focus of the project is the creation of 3d models at various scales of significant cultural heritage artifacts, monuments, and the entire site. INAH plans to use these models as aids to the scientific analysis of the site and as assets for public outreach and education.

 

Virtual Meridian of Augustus Project

IDIA Lab virtual celestial simulator and 3D interpretation of the Meridian of August in ancient Rome. Project commissioned by the Virtual World Heritage Laboratory at Indiana University, directed by Bernard Frischer.

 

Travelogues: Travellers' Views: Southeastern Europe – Eastern Mediterranean Greece – Asia Minor – Southern Italy

First posted in AWOL 3 April 2015, updated 26 May 2022]

Places – Monuments – People
Southeastern Europe – Eastern Mediterranean
Greece – Asia Minor – Southern Italy

Travelogues website was created within the broader project of Aikaterini Laskaridis Foundation to promote Greek culture, and especially Greek literature, on a national and international level. This website aims to make known the graphic materials found in travel accounts of journeys to Greece and the eastern Mediterranean from the 15th century onwards, and thus contribute both to students' education and scientific research. An important part of the editions that constituted the data base of the website belongs to the Historical Library of the Foundation, currently under construction.

Travelogues will periodically be updated with material from major libraries in Greece, such as Gennadius Library and Benaki Museum Library. This material, already in process, spans the time from the 15th to the early 20th century. Of approximately 4500 images, 560 have already been incorporated in the website's collections. In the same sense, the bibliography shall be updated with the most recent research contributions. User feedback will be taken into consideration and the pertinent modifications will get reflected.

MENAdoc Digital Library: One of the central components of the digital services rendered by the Middle East and North Africa Special Area Collection (Sondersammelgebiet 6,23) of the DFG

MENAdoc Digital Library
http://menadoc.bibliothek.uni-halle.de/domainimage/menalib.gif

The MENAdoc - Digital Collections is one of the central components of the DFG Specialised Information Service for Middle East, North African and Islamic Studies' digital services. MENAdoc provides Open Access digital documents with regard to the MENA-region and to Islamic studies. It is comprised of the following collections:

Digitised materials

Born digital materials

All titles of the MENAdoc - Digital Collections

A new service for Middle East and Islamic studies:

 

Digitised Serials of the Orient Institutes Beirut and Istanbul

As agreed upon with the Orient Institute Beirut, MENAdoc hosts digitised volumes of the scholarly series Bibliotheca Islamica and Beiruter Texte und Studien. A similar agreement with the Orient Institute Istanbul will soon make the volumes of the series Istanbuler Texte und Studien available in Open Access as well.

All volumes of the series Bibliotheca Islamica will be published online at the same time as the print issue, while the volumes of BTS and ITS will appear on MENAdoc with a moving wall.

All the digital services of the Specialised Information Service for Middle East, North African and Islamic Studies supported by the DFG based at the University and State Library Saxony-Anhalt (ULB Halle) are employed in the Middle East Virtual Library MENALIB. MENALIB provides access to bibliographic databases and gives information to ongoing conferences and research projects in the fields of Middle East and Islamic Studies. At the same time MENALIB provides access to open e-documents as well as e-material under licence.

Ancient Mining Landscapes: The Example of Laurion

Frank Hulek und Sophia Nomicos (Hrsg.)  
 Ancient Mining Landscapes: The Example of Laurion

Panel 4.2

Archaeology and Economy in the Ancient World – Proceedings of the 19th International Congress of Classical Archaeology, Cologne/Bonn 2018

Die wirtschaftliche Bedeutung der Rohstoffgewinnung, insbesondere des Bergbaus auf Metalle, für antike Gesellschaften wurde schon oft betont. Aber erst in den letzten Jahrzehnten sind dabei auch die archäologischen Hinterlassenschaften in den Blickpunkt der Forschung gerückt. Diese umfassen nicht nur die Bergbauüberreste im engeren Sinn, wie Bergwerke und Aufbereitungswerkstätten sowie deren Abfälle, sondern auch Siedlungsplätze und Infrastruktur im weiteren Sinne, die im Zusammenhang mit der Rohstoffgewinnung entstanden sind.
Dieses Panel beim 19. Internationalen Kongress für Klassische Archäologie sollte einen Überblick über laufende und geplante Forschungen zu Landschaften geben, die in besonderer Weise durch den antiken Bergbau geprägt sind. Es zielte außerdem darauf ab, die Auswirkungen des Bergbaus nicht nur auf die physische Umgebung, sondern auch auf die Kulturlandschaft zu diskutieren. Anhand von Fallbeispielen stand dabei die Identifikation von materiellen Eigenschaften von Bergbaulandschaften, die Unterschiede zwischen ihnen und eventuelle gemeinsame Organisationsmuster im Vordergrund.
