The CSA Propylaea Project
http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/propylaea_kress_2013/images/Pcard_small.png
Welcome to the Introduction of the Final Report of the CSA Propylaea Project. The project, which began as an idea in 1999, was intended to create a unified digital (i.e., computer-based) resource concerning the Propylaea. This Final Report, which consists of many web documents as well as digital files available for download, includes all materials created in the course of the project — and all supporting materials. Thus, these materials serve as the project's final publication. It should be noted that these documents have not been subjected to peer review.
The Propylaea is the magnificent entrance structure that has guarded the entrance to the Acropolis in Athens since shortly after the middle of the fifth century B.C.E. Designed by the architect Mnesicles, the Propylaea stands today as a glorious testimony to the creativity of the architect and to the soaring power and majesty of the ancient Greek architectural vocabulary when put to use by a master such as Mnesicles.
The central aim of the project was to create a single, integrated, digital resource for any student of the Propylaea. This digital resource was to include both textual and photographic material (some already extant), and it was to include a stone-by-stone CAD model of the building itself. Being digital, this material was to be made available via the propylaea.org website; it was assumed that the project website would ultimately cease to function and that the material would be placed in a digital archives. Thus, the material is now available via the Archaeology Data Service, not the website of the CSA Propylaea Project, which will exist for some time merely to point readers to the relevant ADS pages. Some of that material is available here. Other parts were not completed before the project was terminated near the end of 2008. For scholars and others who wish to examine the project in detail, the recommended starting page is the Project Introduction; for those who have a more general interest in this topic, the better starting point is the Project Background and Rationale.
Please note that there are no Greek translations of this or other pages describing the work of the project. Greek translations had been posted previously on the project website. It became apparent that the difficulties of maintaining up-to-date translations made it preferable to omit translations of any kind. Furthermore, online translation facilities, while not yet adequate for anything so complex as this material, will become more and more useful and will soon take the place of supplied translations, providing virtually any language for any reader. It is important to realize, however, that automated translations remain inadequate at this time (2013); readers should be wary of relying upon any such translation and should be sure to use the posted, English version of any web page for quotation or other citation.

The evolution of Rome's maritime facade: archaeology and geomorphology at Castelporziano
Amanda Claridge, Helen Rendell
http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/castelporziano_ahrc_2010/images/intro_1.png
The city of Rome's interface with the Mediterranean Sea at the mouth of the Tiber river and southwards from Ostia to Lavinium (Pratica di Mare) is one of the most complex culture-historic environments in the Roman world. It is the mythical setting for the final episodes of Virgil's epic poem Aeneid, the story of Aeneas, where the Trojan hero and his companions, on their way to found a new Troy, first set foot in Italy and are received by Latinus, king of the Laurentes, in a grand palace in the woods. Aeneas marries Latinus' daughter Lavinia, together they found the new city of Lavinium, and their descendants go on to become the kings of Alba Longa and thence of Rome. Rome's first emperor Augustus, for whom Virgil's poem was written, possessed a Laurentine estate (called Laurentum) probably centred on a huge maritime villa at Tor Paterno, which continued to be enlarged and embellished by successive emperors, especially under the Antonines of the later 2nd century AD. The city of Lavinium, which had declined in the 2nd century BC, was revived under Augustus' patronage, as the centre of an important imperial priesthood, the Lauro-Lavinates. The Laurentine forests became imperial game parks, where elephant and camel herds were based under the care of special procurators, where the emperors' game keepers trained exotic imported wild animals for the hunt and for the arena. New populations of Laurentes, formed of army veterans, were settled in the territory of Lavinium, in the ager Laurens and around the Ostian lake. The sea front - the Laurentine Shore - was developed into a monumental 'maritime façade' to rival that at Alexandria, lined with the luxury villas of the imperial family and its elite circle, among them that of Pliny the Younger, described by him at length and exceptional detail in a letter of about AD100.   

Unlocking historic landscapes in the eastern Mediterranean

Unlocking historic landscapes in the eastern Mediterranean
Jim Crow, Sam Turner
 http://archaeologydataservice.ac.uk/archives/view/easternmed_ahrc_2010/images/CNV00021.png
In many areas of the Eastern Mediterranean there are landscapes exhibiting exceptional time-depth, where the historic landscape is made up of visible features from many different periods. Our research adapted and used a new technique developed in Britain (Historic Landscape Characterisation - HLC) for the first time in the eastern Mediterranean to study these landscapes. HLC is a method for mapping the landscape that can be used to interpret how and when different elements were created. Using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) we integrated data from historical, archaeological and other sources to create detailed, long-term landscape histories of two case-studies areas.

This project investigated:

  • How we can use cost-effective new methods to understand Mediterranean landscapes on a large scale
  • How the rural landscapes of the Aegean have been shaped by social and economic life over the last 1500 years
  • Whether the pace of change been comparable in two study aeas, or whether there have there been periods when people have changed some rural landscapes much faster than others

The Shala Valley Project (SVP) is an Albanian-American collaboration, led by Michael Galaty of Millsaps College in Jackson, MS and Albanian archaeologists Ols Lafe of the Albanian Ministry of Tourism, Culture, Youth and Sports and Zamir Tafilica of the Shkodra Historical Museum. The project was launched in 2004 and conducted fieldwork during the summers of 2005-2008. The SVP integrates interdisciplinary programs of intensive and extensive archaeological survey and excavation with geo-scientific, ethnographic, and (ethno) historical surveys, including archival historical research, in order to study the Shala fis ("tribe"), one of many northern Albanian fisi that survived intact into the 20th century and, to some extent, down to the present day. The goals of the project are twofold:
  • to produce a diachronic record of the valley's cultural resources, including both prehistoric and historic resources, that might help local administrators create a viable management plan
  • to study the effects of "isolation" on people who have always lived in a frontier zone at the edge of larger polities such as the Ottoman Empire and Albanian nation state
This digital archive was undertaken in conjunction with an electronic publication through the Linking Electronic Archives and Publications II (LEAP II) project, funded by the Mellon Foundation. The corresponding article is 'Fort, Tower, or House? Building a Landscape of Settlement in the Shala Valley of High Albania' by Michael L. Galaty, Wayne E. Lee, Charles Watkinson, Zamir Tafilica & Ols Lafe, which can be found in Internet Archaeology 27.

Este espacio está dedicado a exposiciones virtuales de patrimonio escrito organizadas por el grupo de investigación DVCTVS (http://dvctvs.upf.edu). Las piezas en su mayoría provendrán de las colecciones de papiros de la Abadía de Montserrat o del Archivo de los Jesuitas de Barcelona. Se corresponderán a exposiciones reales en diversos recintos. Los recorridos que se propondrán serán accesibles a un público amplio y esperamos mediante esta actividad despertar el interés en los testimonios más antiguos de cultura escrita. En nuestra sección "Pieza destacada", dedicaremos atención especial a piezas en particular de estas colecciones, con la idea de darlas a conocer más en detalle y presentar sus características más llamativas.

This site is devoted to virtual exhibitions of written heritage organized by the DVCTVS research team (http://dvctvs.upf.edu). Most of the pieces come from the papyri collection of the Abbey of Montserrat or from the Archive of the Jesuites in Barcelona. These exhibits will normally be the virtual counterpart to an actual exhibit. The proposed routes will be accesible to a large audience, and we hope to awaken an interest in the oldest testimonies of the written culture through this activity. 

In the "Featured piece" section, we will dedicate special attention to particular pieces from these collections, hoping to make them known to the public in more detail and present their most striking features.

Digitising Patterns of Power (DPP): Peripherical Mountains in the Medieval World
http://dpp.oeaw.ac.at/bilder/casestudies/cs_1.jpg
The project focuses on the analysis of the depiction of space in medieval written sources, of the interaction between built and natural environment, of appropriation of space and the emergence of new political, religious and economic structures of power. DPP compares four regions of the medieval world: the Eastern Alps (6th-12th cent.), the Morava-March Region (6th-11th cent.), the historical region of Macedonia (12th-14th cent.) and historical Southern Armenia (Vaspurakan, 5th-11th cent.).
 
Historical and archaeological data will be digitised, combined and geo-referenced with the help of tools deriving from Digital Humanities (data basis – using the OpenAtlas database, geo-visualisation and spatial analysis, quantitative and correspondence analysis).

Data and results will be presented online as open access and linked to other data repositories.

Greek, Latin, and Digital Philology in Germany and the United States

Greek, Latin, and Digital Philology in Germany and the United States
Gregory Crane
Abstract
This is the first section of a three part essay. This part begins by briefly (and somewhat autobiographically) referencing the changing role of the German philological paradigm in Greco-Roman scholarship in the United States over the past forty years, then goes on by augmenting some published statistics about the decline in German publications cited in English language journals of Greco-Roman studies and concludes by providing some statistics for the size and composition of the German Professoriate in Greek and Latin Philology, Greco-Roman History, and Greco-Roman Archaeology (along with comparable data for Byzantine studies, Medieval Latin, Egyptology and Assyriology). In part 2, I will move on to describe the scale of Greco-Roman studies in the US. Part 3 will compare and contrast the two very different systems. Here, as elsewhere, my goal is to initiate discussion. All comments -- especially any corrections or information about how to interpret governmental statistics quoted below can be sent to gcrane2008@gmail.com
I have now released a draft for part 2 of Greek, Latin, and Digital Philology in the United States. This part includes some information about Greco-Romans studies in the US, with some comparisons with the situation in Germany, and then moves on with a very brief and preliminary start for suggestions as how Germany can make itself an (even more) attractive location for a research career in this field.

In 2014-5, I was fortunate enough to obtain a British Academy-funded Mid-Career Fellowship to work on a substantial monograph on the so-called Carmina Latina Epigraphica, the Latin verse inscriptions, as ‘poetry of the people’.
 
Over the past year, I have published a wide range of blog posts on this issue.

In addition to that, I herewith publish, completely free of charge and for your reading pleasures, an edition (with introduction, translation, and notes) of the Latin verse inscriptions from Roman Britain as a simple, downloadable pdf document:

Kruschwitz, P. (2015): Undying Voices. The Poetry of Roman Britain. Reading [URL: thepetrifiedmuse.wordpress.com/undying-voices]
This document will remain accessible from this page as well as from my academia.edu profile.

Archaeological Research in Asia
Archaeological Research in Asia presents high quality scholarly research conducted in between the Bosporus and the Pacific on a broad range of archaeological subjects of importance to audiences across Asia and around the world. The journal covers the traditional components of archaeology: placing events and patterns in time and space; analysis of past lifeways; and explanations for cultural processes and change. To this end, the publication will highlight theoretical and methodological advances in studying the past, present new data, and detail patterns that reshape our understanding of it. Archaeological Research in Asia publishes work on the full temporal range of archaeological inquiry from the earliest human presence in Asia with a special emphasis on time periods under-represented in other venues. Journal contributions are of three kinds: articles, case reports and short communications. Full length articles should present synthetic treatments, novel analyses, or theoretical approaches...

This journal offers authors two choices to publish their research:

CÉNOB: Corpus des énoncés des noms barbares
http://www.cenob.org/localWeb/Images/marca5a.png
La base de données CÉNOB ("Corpus des énoncés des noms barbares") est la seule base de données scientifique et internationale portant sur les énoncés des « noms barbares » dont sont témoins, jusqu’à la fin de l’Antiquité principalement, les documents et les textes magiques, mais aussi des écrits philosophiques (notamment néoplatoniciens) et théologiques (en particulier gnostiques), dans la Méditerranée orientale et occidentale. Mobilisant une approche interdisciplinaire et comparatiste, la base de données CÉNOB offre à la communauté scientifique un corpus complet des énoncés des « noms barbares » utilisés entre le VIe siècle avant notre ère et le VIe siècle de notre ère – période de la production des tablettes de défixion, objets archéologiques localisés, datés, et donc pris comme points de repère chronologique.

Methodius, On Life and Rational Action – online in English
Today I am quite pleased to be able – at long last! – to upload the first English translation of De Vita, On Life and Rational Action, by Methodius of Olympus.
The translation was made by Ralph Cleminson, from the unpublished Old Slavonic text, which alone has survived.  This was accessed using the online images of manuscript 40 of the Holy Trinity-St Sergius Lavra in Russia.
Here it is:
I have also made the files available at Archive.org here.
As usual, I make these files and their contents public domain.  Do whatever you like with them, personal, educational or commercial.
We all owe Dr Cleminson a debt of thanks.  I have also asked him to translate some more Methodius, and he has agreed in principle.  The next one is likely to be De cibis.

If you wish to read Coptic texts, you can view individual documents online (in HTML). We provide HTML visualizations of texts in diplomatic transcriptions (when manuscript information is available) and normalized Coptic text with an English translation (when that translation is available). We also provide an analytical visualization of each text with the Coptic, English (when available), and part of speech information for the Coptic. Documentation on our part of speech tagging explains the part of speech abbreviations and our methodology.

Documentation beneath the text provides information about it, including the version and date of publication online.

Egyptian Obelisk Tracker

Ancient Egyptians created dozens of obelisks, mainly to commemorate pharaohs. Many of these obelisks were brought to Rome under Augustus and several of the following Roman Emperors who ruled over Egypt. More recently, European colonial powers brought obelisks to France, Britain, and the United States in the 19th century. 

Using Cesium, Egyptian Obelisk Tracker allows a user to track the various routes that some of these obelisks took, from where they originally constructed to where they have been installed. The source code is on GitHub. 

Egyptian Obelisk Tracker is a student project developed by Will Field for Sebastian Heath's Mapping and Data Vizualization of the Ancient World class at The Institute for Studies of the Ancient World, NYU.

Bulgarian E-Journal of Archaeology / Българско е-Списание за Археология
ISSN: 1314-5088
http://be-ja.org/be-ja-cont5/uploads/2013/06/header3a1.jpg
Списание Бе-СА (ISSN 1314-5088) e издание на Асоциацията на българските археолози (АБА) и излиза в две книжки годишно. Амбицията на създателите му и на редакционната колегия е да предоставят на археологическата общност възможност за изява и активност в няколко направления: публикуване на качествени и богато илюстрирани статии и студии, съобщения и рецензии; представяне на иновации в методите на изследване; поставяне на дискусионни проблеми и научна полемика; обнародване на стойностни дисертации на археологическа тема и др. Гаранция за нивото на публикуваните трудове е редакторската работа при подбора и подготовката на публикациите – материалите от първите 2 рубрики на списанието подлежат на рецензиране от двама редактори, съпричастни с проблематиката на предоставения материал.
Тематичният обхват на списанието се ограничава в материали, отнасящи се до археологическите проучвания в България и съседните райони, които контекстуално и културно-хронологически са свързани с явления и процеси на нашето археологическо наследство. Осмислянето и третирането на глобални проблеми като опазване и социализиране на културно-историческото/археологическото наследство ще намерят трибуна в нашето списание в над-регионалния  им аспект.

Списанието има амбицията да поддържа двуезичен стандарт – приемат се материали на български и английски език, като статиите задължително се придружават от резюме на не-основния език на съответния текст. Подробни указания към авторите са представени в линк на нашия портал.

Be-JA (ISSN 1314-5088) is the home journal of the Association of Bulgarian Archaeologists (ABA) and is published twice a year. The ambition of its creators and the editorial board is to provide an opportunity for the archaeological community to take part and to contribute in several directions: publication of high quality, richly illustrated studies and articles, reports and reviews; introducing innovative methods of investigations; initiating discussions on problematic issues and maintaining research polemics; publicizing outstanding doctoral theses, etc. High-standard editorial control in the selection and preparation of publications is guaranteed by our editorial procedure – materials from the first two thematic sections of the journal are peer-reviewed by two editors well-acquainted with the discussed topics.

The thematic scope of the journal covers papers concerned with archaeological investigations in Bulgaria and the neighboring areas that are contextually, culturally and chronologically related to processes and events in the past that have resulted in our common archaeological heritage. Supra-regional discussions and debates on global problems like preservation and dissemination of the cultural/historical/archaeological heritage into wider society are warmly welcomed in our journal.
Our goal is to maintain a bilingual standard – papers in Bulgarian and in English are accepted and each of the published materials should be accompanied by a summary in the language alternative to the main language of the article. Detailed notes for contributors can be found at the corresponding link of four website.
