A generous grant from Thracean Gold Mining, S.A., a subsidiary of the Eldorado Gold Corporation (Vancouver), has enabled the Institute to undertake the creation of an interactive website, “Portal to the Past” (or Portal) that highlights the archaeological work of the Canadian Institute in Greece (CIG) since 1980. The Ambassador of Canada to the Hellenic Republic, Robert W. Peck, was instrumental in creating this opportunity for CIG. This new website is designed to provide a wide audience in Canada and beyond with access to the fieldwork, the finds and the results of the archaeological and scientific research carried out under the auspices of the Canadian Institute in Greece with permits from the Hellenic Ministry of Culture. Cultural organizations around the world for the past decade or so have created similar online portals to make their collections accessible to the public.
Each CIG's 18 archaeological projects since 1980 have a representative sample of the imagery and information related to its research in the Portal. The information and imagery in the website is fully searchable, by project, site, find, image, institution, researcher, research expertise and other criteria. In making this available online, both the projects and the Institute will receive a broader recognition of the significant work that they have carried out in the past four decades throughout Greece in elucidating the rich cultural heritage of the country. These discoveries span from the Mesolithic period (ca 9th millennium BCE) to the 20th century CE. One can search each component for specific information.
After each field season the current project’s entries and image collection in the Portal will be updated. New projects will be added as they are approved and conduct their field work. Additional materials will be added to older projects as they become available.
In addition to the archaeological projects the Portal includes imagery and information related to the Frederick E. Winter B/W Negative Collection. The late Professor Winter (University of Toronto) donated to the Archives of the Institute his collection of B/W negatives with contact sheets that he took during a long career focused on the study of Greek and Roman defensive architecture and Hellenistic buildings. This imagery covers Greece, Turkey and Italy from 1956 to 1986.
The CIG Portal to the Past is one component of the Institute’s ongoing efforts to preserve, to organize, to store properly and to make accessible the archives of the Institute as an institution and of the archives of the archaeological projects which have held permits under the aegis of the Institute.
This repository is dedicated to documenting and modelling every single aspect of the Semitic languages. The main database holds a record of all known roots that have been entered so far, and gives many criteria by which to search and compare them.
The script used for the roots is the Ancient South Arabian script known as the "Musnad". This script was chosen because it is the only known Semitic abjad that contains graphemes for all of the known Semitic phonemes. As this abjad has only recently been included in the Unicode specification, it's not included on most Operating Systems. Therefore you'll need to download the Musnad font from our downloads section. The script is fairly easy to learn (only took me about a day or two) and it is a much better choice than using Latin characters, with various modified characters to represent those letters not known in Latin-based alphabets. The use of the Musnad for the roots does not mean the roots are necessarily existent in the Ancient South Arabian languages, the script is being used as a general way to represent common Semitic roots. However when the script appears in a word, then it is being used to represent an Ancient South Arabian word.

Welcome to the new version of the electronic Pennsylvania Sumerian Dictionary, ePSD2. Here we provide listings of over 12,000 Sumerian words, phrases and names, occurring in almost 100,000 distinct forms a total of over 2.27 million times in the corpus of texts indexed for the Dictionary. The corpus covers, directly or indirectly, about 100,000 of the 134,000+ known Sumerian texts.
ePSD2 is organized as a glossary with a collection of subprojects providing the corpora. You can browse the subprojects and their individual glossaries, or you can work with the entire ePSD2 glossary and corpus by using the top-level ePSD2 project.
ePSD2 is a work in progress--see the What's Next? page for further details.
'Atiqot is the refereed journal of the Israel Antiquities Authority. It is published four times a year. The contents of the printed version is uploaded to the e-journal website. No changes are made to articles post-publication. The printed journal is available via the IAA website.
Range of Topics.‘Atiqot covers a large chronological span, from prehistory up to the Ottoman period. Excavations are studied from various aspects and disciplines—often the result of the close interaction between researchers of the IAA and outside specialists. Thus, a report should include, in addition to the stratigraphic analysis, comprehensive treatments of the archaeological data, including studies of the various groups of finds, such as ceramics, glass, stone and metal objects, coins, jewelry, textiles, etc., as well as the geological, botanical, faunal and anthropological evidence. Laboratory analyses, such as petrography, radiocarbon dating and metallurgy, should be included where relevant.
The archaeological data published in ‘Atiqot are not confined to a specific range of periods or topics, but to a geographical area—the Land of Israel—which has been influenced by almost every ancient culture that existed in the Levant. The journal thus presents comprehensive research on the region and its connections with the neighboring countries. The publication is devoted to final reports and shorter articles, although occasionally a volume is dedicated to a particular topic (e.g., burial caves, agricultural installations), period (e.g., prehistoric, Islamic) or site (e.g., Acre, Jerusalem).
Excavation Reports. The papers published in ‘Atiqot are primarily the result of salvage excavations conducted by the IAA. Their results are sometimes unexpectedly important, filling in gaps that could not be understood by localized studies of the larger tells. ‘Atiqot is one of the few vehicles for imparting this important data and therefore a primary asset to any scholar in archaeology.
Bilingual Journal. The journal is bilingual, publishing articles in English or Hebrew; all Hebrew reports are accompanied by English summaries keyed to illustrations in the main text.
Iniciou no ano de 1991, com a publicação do seu primeiro número, a demanda de CADMO, sob esta forma de revista. Tal como para o herói lendário de Tiro que lhe deu nome, o Oriente era o seu ponto de partida e assumia-se como seu objecto científico específico, o mesmo Oriente que o nome fenício de Cadmo significava e que com esse nome era assumido e se proclamava como objecto de investigação científica e motivação historiográfica.
Ao longo de um quarto de século que já leva percorrido, numerosos orientalistas nacionais e estrangeiros expuseram, nas suas páginas, investigações e leituras, tanto em português como noutras línguas. É o signo de Babel reassumido, mas, desta vez, restaurado, com uma clara intenção de convergência, para uma construção eficaz.
As várias e antigas áreas do orientalismo pré-clássico, Egipto, Mesopotâmia, Pérsia, Síria, Palestina, Anatólia, bem como as vicissitudes de uma longa história humana que nos liga àuqelas paragens do Mediterrâneo oriental, todas foram objecto de tratamento, em análise pormenorizada ou em comentários de síntese mais aprofundada.
A partir do seu número 16, entretanto, novos sonhos, novos interesses e novas apetências vieram proporcionar aos investigadores de História Antiga do Centro de História da Faculdade de Letras de Lisboa a oportunidade de, à sombra do nome de Cadmo, não se sublinhar apenas o ponto de partida oriental com o seu estatuto de proto-civilização. Se a viagem de Cadmo demandava Europa, íntima e irmã, impunha-se valorizar igualmente o ponto de chegada e toda a sua riqueza de materiais históricos e culturais. Ao grupo de historiadores do mundo oriental pré-clássico veio juntar-se o dos historiadores do mundo clássico. Juntos reforçam agora grandemente a comitiva de Cadmo, principal grupo dinamizador da sua demanda por Europa.
A este grupo local de dinamização anuíram em associar-se uma pléiade de prestigiados nomes de cientistas, nacionais e estrangeiros, pertencentes às mais variadas universidades irmãs e cúmplices no cultivo das matérias da História da Antiguidade. É com toda a gratidão que acolhemos o entusiasmo acrescido que a sua disponibilidade nos traz.
A experiência e a satisfação já conseguida nestes anos de investigação comum fizeram-nos amadurecer para a consciência de que a associação aprofundada de ambas as matérias na historiografia da Antiguidade, a pré-clássica e a clássica, se justifica plenamente e não só pelo âmbito implicitamente definido nos dois principais momentos do itinerário de Cadmo, a partida e a chegada, representados por estes dois mundos. Hipotéticos incómodos de concorrência ou “inveja dos sábios”, no dizer de um provérbio hebraico, não nos causam inibição, pois nos move a certeza de que cada um destes mundos representa uma fonte primigénia e específica para dimensões patrimoniais complementares, que continuam a integrar e a marcar no essencial os conteúdos do nosso próprio devir histórico.
FARLI, The Foundation for Archaeological Research in the Land of Israel (RA), was founded on November 10th, 2009, as a non-profit organization aiming to advance and promote archaeological research in Israel, support archaeological projects, help preserve and develop archaeological and heritage sites, develop and promote new technological tools in the service of archaeology, and support research concerning the archaeology and history of the southern Levant. In this spirit FARLI founded this site, aiming to become a valuable tool for archaeologists, archaeology students and archaeology enthusiasts world wide. Here you will find a growing database of ancient pottery assemblages, divided into the regions and periods in which they were found, subdivided into type categories including all the valuable information we can provide such as; a list of archaeological sites in which they were found, special features, measurements and a bibliographical reference. The main focus of this site will be on the pottery of the Southern Levant, with special emphasis on the pottery of the Holy Land throughout the periods. However we aim to develop this site to include other geographical regions in the Ancient Near East complete with their own unique chronology. If you wish to help us with additional data please send the material to: email@example.com
FARLI is a non-profit organization and needs your support to continue operating. If you wish to contribute to us please follow this link or the link appearing on the left. We thank you and hope you will find this site both enjoyable and enriching.

Knowledge is the economy of the future, the key to innovation, and a step on the path towards a more civil and humane society. Marginalia provides universal access to thinkers and artists and creates new knowledge through connecting the separated silos of the university, arts, and culture into a single space of insight and learning, curated by expert editors guided by our vision of democratizing depth in an age drowning in the shallows.
Deep learning for the digital age captures the meaning of marginalia in modern times: the personalized and actionable knowledge inscribed in the margins of a book’s page – not just commentary but new insight that the individual could use to act in the world. But the margins are now digital, and the insights are for everyone.
We publish every other Friday, with some special features appearing at other times.
Marginalia is a Los Angeles Review of Books Channel. LARB Channels are a community of wholly independent, vanguard online magazines specializing in literary criticism, politics, science, the arts and culture, supported by the Los Angeles Review of Books.
IMAGO was conceived in 2010 to commemorate the Roman Society's centenary. It is intended to be used by students, teachers, lecturers and everyone interested in the archaeology, history and material culture of ancient Rome.
Photos are donated and available to use and share for educational and research purposes only, and downloadable images can be quickly saved or copied into presentation software such as PowerPoint. Click here for the complete list with brief descriptions of all photos in the IMAGO database (downloads as an Excel spreadsheet).
The majority of the photos are digitised copies of the Society's slide collection, which grew to include 3,500 slides - the best of the collection was scanned and enhanced to improve access to this valuable resource. Although the quality of some slides, mostly donated in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, is variable, they are also important records of how Roman monuments and their environments (and the people studying these remains) have changed over time. Many digital images are also available and these will grow as more photos are donated.
Donating photos of new and well known sites ensures users of IMAGO will continue to be able to access images of the lastest Roman finds and discoveries.
Fondata nel 2010, la rivista telematica semestrale Horti Hesperidum. Studi di storia del collezionismo e della storiografia artistica (ISSN 2239-4141) è pubblicata sotto il patrocinio del Dipartimento di Studi letterari, filosofici e di storia dell’arte dell’Università degli Studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”. Dal 2012 è inserita nell’elenco delle riviste scientifiche nazionali accreditate dall’ANVUR.
Horti Hesperidum si propone di dare visibilità alle ricerche di studiosi di storia dell’arte, più e meno giovani, impegnati a indagare le testimonianze scritte del passato e, quindi, a elaborare una più consapevole riflessione sugli strumenti di indagine storico-critica e sui modi di vedere che appartengono al nostro tempo.
Unitamente alla rivista nasce la Biblioteca di Horti Hesperidum, al cui interno saranno nel corso del tempo archiviati testi letterari di interesse storico-artistico, di vario genere ed epoca, dall’antichità all’età contemporanea, sui quali troveranno fondamento gli stessi saggi storici pubblicati nei fascicoli della rivista. Il programma editoriale di Horti Hesperidumè principalmente legato alle attività di ricerca condotte in stretta collaborazione da docenti e studenti all’interno del corso di laurea magistrale in Storia dell’arte presso la Facoltà di Lettere e Filosofia dell’Università degli studi di Roma “Tor Vergata”.
Fascicolo 2017, I («La Roma di Raffaele Riario tra XV e XVI secolo. Cultura antiquaria e cantieri decorativi»)
