ARCANE Project: Synchronizing Cultures and Civilizations of the Ancient Near East and the Eastern Mediterranean in the Third Millennium BC

ARCANE Project: Synchronizing Cultures and Civilizations of the Ancient Near East and the Eastern Mediterranean in the Third Millennium BC
ARCANE
The ARCANE project aims at synchronising the third millennium BC regional assemblages of archaeological material in the Near East and the Eastern Mediterranean, with the goal to produce a reliable relative and absolute chronology.
To reach this aim, it was decided to review the complete material culture, but to examine it under the specific point of view of chronological variation, leaving aside other historical and archaeological problems. A common methodology will be used by all regional groups, and participants will try to develop, in the course of the project, a common terminology in order to define both periods and different types of material.
The proposed methodology is based on three main points: 1) to concentrate on stratigraphically safe contexts and sealed assemblages (e.g. in situ material on floors, material inside a room sealed by the collapse of the roof, undisturbed, not reused graves) and on complete objects; 2) to analyse complete assemblages (combinations of co-occurring artefacts): these have to be studied together, in order to establish the co-occurrence of different types of objects in the different phases; and 3) not to limit the study to already published material, but to include as much as possible unpublished material, provided by the directors of excavations and their collaborators, which will be involved to different degrees in the project Work will proceed in successive steps: first at a regional level, by establishing regional periodizations, then at a supra-regional level, by synchronising the different regional periodizations. Finally, a general synchronisation will be attempted at...

Mobilizing the Past for a Digital Future

Mobilizing the Past is a collection of 20 articles that explore the use and impact of mobile digital technology in archaeological field practice. The detailed case studies present in this volume range from drones in the Andes to iPads at Pompeii, digital workflows in the American Southwest, and examples of how bespoke, DIY, and commercial software provide solutions and craft novel challenges for field archaeologists. The range of projects and contexts ensures that Mobilizing the Past for a Digital Future is far more than a state-of-the-field manual or technical handbook. Instead, the contributors embrace the growing spirit of critique present in digital archaeology. This critical edge, backed by real projects, systems, and experiences, gives the book lasting value as both a glimpse into present practices as well as the anxieties and enthusiasm associated with the most recent generation of mobile digital tools.
This book emerged from a workshop funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities held in 2015 at Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston. The workshop brought together over 20 leading practitioners of digital archaeology in the U.S. for a weekend of conversation. The papers in this volume reflect the discussions at this workshop with significant additional content. Starting with an expansive introduction and concluding with a series of reflective papers, this volume illustrates how tablets, connectivity, sophisticated software, and powerful computers have transformed field practices and offer potential for a radically transformed discipline.
Edited by Erin Walcek Averett, Jody Michael Gordon, and Derek B. Counts

Ancient Places in Today's Library: Pleiades URIs and MARC

Ancient Places in Today's Library: Pleiades URIs and MARC 
By Gabriel McKee
10/24/2016 
In September, the ISAW Library submitted a proposal to the Library of Congress to add the Pleiades gazetteer to its list of authorized sources for subject heading terms. That same month the proposal was accepted, and Pleiades was entered into the official list and assigned an identifying code. With this code, place names from Pleiades can now be entered into library catalog records.
Though this may seem like a somewhat arcane bit of technical news, it’s actually a big step forward for both Pleiades and the role of libraries in the Linked Open Data movement. The ability to use Pleiades names in subject headings is useful for keyword searching, as it allows us to provide access to both the ancient and modern names of some locations. Under the cataloging rules used by American academic libraries, inhabited places are cataloged using their modern names. For instance, the latest ISAW publication, Graffiti from the Basilica in the Agora of Smyrna, is assigned the LC geographic heading İzmir (Turkey), the modern name of the city. Since Pleiades is now a recognized source of authoritative name data, we can now add to this book's record a geographic heading for the city’s Pleaides heading, which records not only one ancient name, but three: Naulochon/Smyrna/Palaia Smyrna
But additional name access is not all that this change allows.
recent change to MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging)—the standard format in which library catalog records are coded—allows for the entry of uniform resource identifiers (URIs) in subject headings. URIs—unique character strings used to identify a resource or thing—are one of the foundational principles behind Linked Data. Though you may not have heard of URIs, you probably use them every day—web URLs are a form of URI, and due to their utility and ubiquity most URIs are now structured in HTTP format and point to an online location. Though the names of places in Pleiades are useful, it is the unchanging URIs that Pleiades associates with those names and places that truly distinguish it as a 21st-century linked data resource. By encoding the URI for Smyrna (https://pleiades.stoa.org/places/550771) in the metadata for a resource about that place, we create a connection between the resource, the conceptual place, and other resources that also connect to it. The Pleiades page in turn contains references to additional resources about the place in multiple periods. The metadata model known as the Resource Description Framework (RDF) describes individual information resources—from books to websites to physical artifacts—in three-part units of information (subject : predicate : object), called triples, that connect URIs to one another semantically, representing each resource as a part of web of interconnected information. Each portion of a triple is represented by a URI. For example:

RDF uses the relationships, represented by the links used above, to link resources to each other. A linked data library catalog or other database would use these links to draw connections between related resources. In the example above, a user would be able to easily navigate from Graffiti from the Basilica to Letter to the Philippians, other works by Polycarp, and other works concerning Smyrna. This would enhance the user's ability to discover information, and could highlight unexpected connections between different resources.
The use of URIs in library cataloging is relatively new, but has the power to transform the usefulness of cataloging and cataloging metadata. The Library of Congress is currently at work on the BIBFRAME (Bibliographic Framework) Initiative, an entirely new framework for resource cataloging that is intended to replace MARC. Though it is not likely to be implemented on a large scale for several years, BIBFRAME is built entirely on linked data principles, and will rely on URIs for connecting users to information. In preparation for this, the controlled vocabularies used for subjects and names are beginning to shift to a URI-based model.
The ISAW Library is ready to be an active agent in that conceptual shift. Beginning this semester, we will be adding Pleiades headings and URIs to many of our records for new materials. We are already beginning to think about different uses for this metadata, including the creation of browsable maps of our collection and the automatic updating of Pleiades pages with information about new resources that link to them. And we will also work to expand and enhance Pleiades itself, creating new Pleiades IDs for places represented in our collection but not yet in the gazetteer, particularly in Central Asia and Ancient China.

Description

In this book, Professor David Kennedy explores all aspects of kites and related structures from their basic function to more elaborate arrays of kites. Together with examples and case studies, he explores all aspects of these intriguing structures and the methods being employed to better understand them. In particular, the use of aerial archeology techniques from airborne photography in the early days to today’s use of Google Earth and similar tools.

Prior to the aerial crossing of the Jordanian desert and lava fields of the early 20th Century, little was known in the Western world of the structures built from the basalt boulders which became known as kites. News of these structures were published in the journal Antiquity and speculation began on their purpose, composition and the various styles of structure which were being observed. Kites are formed from walls built from these boulders and form a head or enclosure and a run of walls which flow out for up to more than a kilometre.

Online Coins of the Roman Empire (OCRE) News

RIC 9 published to OCRE
RIC volume 9 has been published to Online Coinage of the Roman Empire. This represents about 1,700 types and 3,200 subtypes. In total, there are now more than 43,000 Roman Imperial coin types in OCRE, spread over half a millennium from Augustus to Zeno. This was a huge undertaking with many collaborators from the ANS and DAI, as well as contributors of data from more than a dozen American and European cultural heritage institutions. Without generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, we may never have completed this project, which will officially come to a close in December. Since publishing the types to OCRE yesterday, I have begun the process of harvesting relevant coins from partner institutions. The British Museum alone has contributed an additional 11,600 RIC 9 coins to OCRE, and the total number of physical specimens linked into the project stands around 93,000. We hope to surpass 100,000 when the ANS and Fitzwilliam Museum coins are added soon.

Despite the official "end" of the project (with respect to meeting the specifications of the original NEH grant application), the project will continue to evolve in a variety of ways. We anticipate aggregating content from more partners, especially from the archaeological community. There are more than 200,000 Roman Imperial coins in the Portable Antiquities Scheme, but so far barely over 300 have been linked to OCRE URIs. I am continuing to build more sophisticated analysis and visualization interfaces. These advancements have been implemented directly in Nomisma.org, but I anticipate porting these code updates into OCRE and various other Numishare-based coin type projects. We also plan to unveil two new features by the end of this year: an intuitive coin type identification interface that non-specialists (collectors or archaeologists working in the field) might use to identity coins, and a faceted search function for architecture depicted on Roman coinage (which extends into Republican coins in CRRO).

While the NEH funding was instrumental in the development of OCRE specifically, the open source code and the workflows we developed for this project have had an impact on our ability to publish similar online type corpora. In 2015, we saw the release of Coinage of the Roman Republic Online and PELLA. Since the multilingual and visualization functionality are inherent to Numishare, our other projects benefit from the funding the NEH invested directly into OCRE. One of these, obviously, is the Egyptian National Library collection of Islamic coinage, which is available in both English and Arabic

A note to users about the Homer and the Papyri database

The database archived here was created in 2002 by Michael Jones, with the cooperation and supervision of the Stoa Consortium, edited at that time by Anne Mahoney and Ross Scaife. The database is now more than a decade old and has not been updated since 2003. Instead, complete editions of Homeric papyri are now being published as part of the Homer Multitext project. What follows is an overview of the current functionality of the two major types of searches available in this archived version of Homer and the Papyri.

Searching for variants: Users may search for variants by specifying Iliad or Odyssey, book number, or a particular witness, as described on the Homer and the Papyri Help page and in the Introduction.

Searching and generating lists of papyrus witnesses: Lists of Homeric papyri (regardless of whether or not they contain variants) can be generated by the database for the Iliad and Odyssey by simply choosing the title and selecting the "search witnesses" button. This list cannot be further specified.
