    Bollettino di Archeologia On Line
    ISSN 2039-0076
    http://www.bollettinodiarcheologiaonline.beniculturali.it/images/mibact.png
    Editoriale


    Quasi un secolo è passato dall’emanazione del R.D. 30 gennaio 1913, n. 363 (Regolamento di esecuzione delle leggi 20 giugno 1909, n. 364, e 23 giugno 1912, n. 688, per le antichità e le belle arti), ma ne resta, tra altri, tuttora in vigore l’art. 83 che assegnava alla responsabilità del Soprintendente l’invio al Ministero, ai fini della pubblicazione, di una relazione sui risultati scientifici ottenuti negli scavi più importanti. La sede allora prevista per la pubblicazione erano le ”Notizie degli scavi e scoperte d'antichità” dell’Accademia dei Lincei, cui si sono opportunamente affiancate nel corso di questo secolo numerose altre sedi di pubblicazione. Nonostante tale moltiplicazione di testate, il problema della edizione degli scavi archeologici è tuttavia restato un problema fondamentale e, duole dirlo, largamente irrisolto; ciò anche per l’enorme dilatarsi, naturalmente ben venuto sotto il profilo culturale, della materia oggetto della ricerca scientifica, al quale però non ha corrisposto un’adeguata estensione dei mezzi per le pubblicazioni.


    Da alcuni anni la tecnologia informatica è venuta in aiuto mettendo a disposizione strumenti molto potenti per dar soluzione – o almeno avviare a soluzione - a questo problema. Non è naturalmente questa la sede per illustrare i vantaggi che il nostro Ministero può ricavare dall’utilizzazione dell’editoria elettronica nel settore archeologico, ma vale la pena ricordarli almeno sommariamente: mettere a disposizione delle Soprintendenze un efficace strumento per gestire, anche con metodologie e criteri innovativi, la pubblicazione di grandi quantità di dati in tempi utili al progredire della ricerca e alla comunicazione di informazioni su temi di interesse generale (ad esempio nel campo dell’archeologia preventiva); offrire al personale tecnico-scientifico del Ministero e ai loro collaboratori esterni la possibilità di pubblicare (mantenendo la proprietà intellettuale delle opere prodotte) con costi ridotti la propria produzione scientifica di qualità garantita, in un circuito che ne permette la diffusione accanto o in alternativa all’editoria commerciale; offrire un servizio all’utenza contribuendo all’attività di valorizzazione del patrimonio; accrescere l’impatto della produzione scientifica entrando a far parte del circuito globale delle “digital libraries”; diffondere l’immagine del Ministero anche attraverso un proprio marchio editoriale.


    A circa vent’anni dalla nascita del “Bollettino di Archeologia” ad opera di Paola Pelagatti e Adriano La Regina e a quasi un decennio della nascita di una Direzione Generale per i Beni Archeologici, la Direzione per le Antichità ha voluto perciò istituire, anche avvalendosi dell’importante esperienza maturata in collaborazioni come quella con “Fold&R” e “Fastionline”, una rivista telematica che costituisca un punto di riferimento ed un luogo di discussione per tutti gli studiosi, funzionari, collaboratori, docenti e ricercatori che operano a vario titolo nel settore archeologico. L’obiettivo è che essa diventi oltre che luogo di pubblicazione di scavi e ricerche, anche sede di incontro di problematiche specifiche e luogo di confronto per realtà diverse, occasione per offrire un ampio panorama delle attività di ricerca, di tutela e di promozione della conoscenza del ricco patrimonio archeologico italiano, strumento per informare e confrontarsi su tematiche attuali, su questioni di metodo, su prospettive innovative e sulla molteplicità di iniziative di comune interesse per quanti operano nel settore. Naturalmente l’interesse dell’uso dell’informatica sta anche nella possibilità di rinnovare i modi stessi della comunicazione archeologica, e crediamo che la disponibilità di uno strumento, peraltro a utilizzazione gratuita, come questo, faciliterà la sperimentazione di nuovi modi di divulgazione, ma anche riflessioni sul senso del nostro lavoro nel contesto attuale, anche nel confronto con quanto si fa in altri settori e altri paesi.


    Se nel tempo molte Soprintendenze Archeologiche hanno meritoriamente attivato proprie collane editoriali, destinate a sensibilizzare soprattutto un pubblico locale, la nuova testata potrà costituire occasione anche per dare risalto a livello nazionale ed internazionale alle attività editoriali ed alle pubblicazioni di ciascun Ufficio, anche attraverso presentazioni, anticipazioni o recensioni.


    Al tempo stesso è auspicabile che l’iniziativa possa invogliare la partecipazione dei colleghi di altri Paesi, europei e non, con problematiche simili o punti di vista differenti, per confermare la validità e la vitalità di un dibattito aperto nella comunità scientifica degli archeologi e degli amministratori del patrimonio di antichità, indipendentemente dai confini circoscritti di ciascuna nazione.


    Non a caso, in apertura della Rivista e in alcuni dei primi fascicoli saranno pubblicati gli atti del XVII International Congress of Classical Archaeology - Meetings between Cultures in theancient Mediterranean, svoltosi a Roma dal 22 al 26 settembre 2008, raccolti e curati per la pubblicazione dall’Associazione Internazionale di Archeologia Classica con la quale questo Ministero ha da tempo istituito la proficua collaborazione sopra ricordata per Fasti online e Fold&R. Il numero 0 della nuova rivista scientifica è solo una ridotta presentazione della più vasta rassegna che sarà messa in rete nei prossimi mesi con la pubblicazione delle diverse sessioni del Congresso, contestualmente alla presentazione dei contributi scientifici e agli spunti di discussione che auspichiamo possano pervenire numerosi per arricchire il panorama che ci si prefigge di presentare.


    Nel frattempo ci attendiamo dai colleghi proposte, suggerimenti, articoli, contributi per dar corpo e linfa vitale alla nuova rivista, che, come indica la partecipazione al Comitato Scientifico di tutti i Soprintendenti italiani, intende essere più che la Rivista della Direzione per le Antichità, la rivista di tutti gli archeologi dell’Amministrazione. La pubblicazione dei dati degli scavi e delle ricerche archeologiche, resta infatti, insieme alla tutela e alla conservazione del patrimonio, il fine ultimo del lavoro degli archeologi che operano nel Ministero, oltre che un loro preciso dovere culturale e sociale, in quanto non si tratta solo di mettere sempre nuovi e più precisi segmenti nell’inesauribile disegno della ricerca scientifica, ma anche di far partecipe nei diversi modi della comunicazione l’intera comunità, che sostiene i costi di queste ricerche, dei valori della storia: ovvero dare sempre più compiuta attuazione al dettato dell’articolo 9 della nostra Costituzione.


    Buon lavoro.

    More than 80 LOD-enhanced ebooks published to the ANS Digital Library
    Friday, January 13, 2017
    The American Numismatic Society has nearly completed its Mellon Foundation-funded Humanities Open Book program. Eighty-two of 86 books have been enhanced by a Whitney Christopher, a TEI specialist from the King's College London DH program to link to people and places defined on Nomisma.org, Pleiades (either directly linked or by means of Nomisma's internal concordance system), VIAF, Wikidata, and the ANS's own archival authority control system. The final four books will go online soon. They are all available in the ANS Digital Library.
    The number of people and places mentioned in these texts is a staggering figure, and it should be noted that we have focused on linking those entities that are most relevant to the texts, but we will continue to refine the linking over time, especially when it comes to Nomisma concepts and bibliographic references to Worldcat Works (links to which have not yet been incorporated). As Nomisma expands further into the Greek world and other domains of numismatics (after the ancient period), we will return to these ebooks to insert or replace links to Nomisma mints, people, and political entities.

    Beyond relevant people and places, we have inserted hundreds of links to IGCH records (about 170 different coin hoards are cited in 400 locations in a handful of books), to the ANS collection, and to coin types defined in OCRE or CRRO. So far, more than 100 coins in the ANS and 6 in the Smithsonian American Art Museum have been identified by their accession numbers, although one of the four remaining books to be published will soon include nearly 70 more links to ANS coins. There are many more coins referenced in these books that may now belong to the ANS, but were not accessioned at the date of publication. A curator with more specific knowledge will need to identify these in the future.

    One of the most often cited hoard is the Demanhur Hoard (IGCH 1664), which is mentioned in four books and on various pages of two of Edward Newell's notebooks. By linking archival authorities mentioned in these texts, we have greatly enhanced access to the works by and about Edward Newell and other prominent numismatic figures associated with the Society. A user of the ANS's authority portal (built on EAC-CPF) will have access to books written by Newell in our digital library, as well as his archival materials. Furthermore, mentions of Newell from the books written by other scholars will appear under annotations. In his case, he is mentioned in 18 other books, sometimes in multiple sections.

    Like Mantis, the OCRE and CRRO config files have been updated to link to our archival SPARQL endpoint, and therefore annotations about specific types are accessible directly through types defined in these system. Nearly 50 types in OCRE are linked from Roman Medallions, and a researcher can drill down into a specific section of the book from RIC 5 Gallienus and Salonina 1.

    Finally, through the links to Pleiades, each section in each book that mentions an ancient place will be accessible in Pelagios.

    Shreyaa Bhatt writes about the photo:
    The Roman forum was the administrative and commercial centre of Roman civic life. Today, the site is filled with a deep, but puzzling, sense of history. Existing structures enmesh original ancient ruins dating from the Republican and Imperial periods with Christian and Renaissance facades. At the centre of the photo is the Temple of Saturn, originally dedicated in 497 BCE, and rebuilt several times over the course of the next approximately 800 years due to fire. To the left of temple is the triumphal Arch of Septimius Severus, erected in 203 CE and suggestively built in front of the Temple of Concord to imply the restoration of peace following the victories against the Parthians. Behind the arch is the Curia, the meeting place of the Roman senate, the building works of which commenced in 44 BCE by Julius Caesar and completed in 29 BCE by Augustus. The building was in use as a senatorial curia up until 630 CE, when it was converted into the church of Sant’ Adriano by Pope Honorius I. Between the major monuments which still stand, or partially stand, today are broken columns, fragmentary bases of statues and remains of old paths and stairwells, leaving a chaotic and confusing sense of a monumental past, which, in its own day would have been extraordinarily polished and orderly.

    About the Book

    The Republic of Plato is one of the classic gateway texts into the study and practice of philosophy, and it is just the sort of book that has been able to arrest and redirect lives. How it has been able to do this, and whether or not it will be able to do this in your own case, is something you can only discover for yourself. The present guidebook aims to help a person get fairly deep, fairly quickly, into the project. It divides the dialogue into 96 sections and provides commentary on each section as well as questions for reflection and exploration. It is organized with a table of contents and is stitched together with a system of navigating bookmarks. Links to external sites such as the Perseus Classical Library are used throughout. This book is suitable for college courses or independent study.

    ALIM: Archivio della Latinità Italiana del Medioevo
    l progetto ALIM (Archivio della Latinità Italiana del Medioevo) intende offrire alla libera consultazione, sulla rete Internet, tutti i testi composti in Italia nel corso del medioevo e scritti in latino (Elenco dei testi che entreranno a far parte dell'archivio elettronico ALIM). Il latino rappresentò, infatti, per molti secoli la sola lingua in cui ebbero espressione scritta molte le principali creazioni del pensiero, della scienza e della letteratura del medio evo, oltre che la sua documentazione storica e, anche quando si affermarono nella scrittura le lingue nazionali, non perse mai, sino alla fine del medioevo ed oltre, la funzione e il prestigio di lingua transnazionale, cui era necessario fare ricorso quando si intendeva conferire alle opere piena funzione espressiva, dignità letteraria e circolazione internazionale.
     
    Il progetto di ricerca, nato negli anni Novanta e tuttora in corso di esecuzione, riguarda i testi composti in Italia fra VIII e XV secolo e si propone di completare le informazioni linguistiche reperibili, per i secoli precedenti, nel grande dizionario della latinità medievale italiana, promosso dall'Unione Accademica Nazionale* e curato da Francesco Arnaldi e Pasquale Smiraglia, il Latinitatis Italicae Medii Aevi lexicon (saec. V ex. – saec. XI in.), Editio altera, SISMEL - Edizioni del Galluzzo, Firenze 2001. Anche il progetto ALIM è condotto sotto gli auspici dell'Unione Accademica Nazionale* e rappresenta un nuovo contributo italiano al più ampio progetto, promosso dall'Union Académique Internationale di Bruxelles, di realizzare un dizionario del latino medievale europeo, che integri i lessici delle rispettive latinità medievali, elaborati da tutti gli Stati europei. Inoltre, in ragione della finalità lessicografica dell'intero progetto, si è da ultimo aperto l’archivio ad una tipologia testuale diversa da quella letteraria, ossia la ricca produzione documentaria pubblica e privata dei secoli VIII-XV, partendo dalle fonti già edite in grandi raccolte diplomatiche, come il Codex diplomaticus Cavensis (1873-1990).
     
    Il programma ALIM, che comprende anche ricerche di filologia, stora letteraria e informatica umanistica, è stato finora realizzato con finanziamenti del Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche (CNR), dell’Unione Accademica Nazionale (UAN), oltre che delle Università coinvolte**. Ha fruito, inoltre, di finanziamenti del Ministero dell’Università e della Ricerca Scientifica e Tecnologica nell’ambito dei seguenti bandi per progetti di ricerca di rilevante interesse nazionale:
     
    PRIN 1996 (coordinatore nazionale: Giovanni Polara); PRIN 1997, 1999, 2001, 2003 (coordinatore nazionale: Gian Carlo Alessio); 2005 (coordinatore nazionale: Antonio De Prisco)2009 (coordinatore nazionale: Gian Carlo Alessio), 2012 (coordinatore nazionale: Francesco Stella).

        Rome: a Virtual Tour of the Ancient City
        Explore the architecture and history of Rome, walking around a 3D digital model of the ancient city, with this free online course.
        https://ugc.futurelearn.com/uploads/images/5c/c2/promo_large_5cc27180-a3b0-4adb-894f-a4f01d954318.jpg
        About the course 
        Take a guided tour around ancient Rome with University of Reading expert, Dr Matthew Nicholls, using his detailed, historically accurate and award-winning, 3D digital model of this awe-inspiring city.

        Immerse yourself in the architecture and history of Ancient Rome

        Join Matthew on a walk around the city of Rome, and ask yourself:
        Why was this ancient city built where it was? Did all roads really lead to Rome? How was drinking water supplied to the city’s million inhabitants? Where did Romans worship their gods and meet their political masters? And which buildings provided a backdrop for the spectacular events that both celebrated emperors and secured the loyalty of the masses?
        The course will encourage you to explore the answers to all of these questions and many more. It combines excerpts and ‘virtual walk around’ views of the 3D digital model with timelines, animations and 360 degree panoramic images. Moving seamlessly between the digital model and real-life film footage of contemporary Rome, Matthew brings the ancient city to life as never before.
        By the end of the course, you will:
        • be familiar with the topography, architecture, and political and social history of ancient Rome;
        • understand how experts study these topics and what they use as source material to gain an accurate insight into the past;
        • and better understand and interpret the archaeological ruins that you might encounter, for example, on holiday in Rome.

        Learn with a Roman history expert from the University of Reading

        Throughout the course, you will learn with Dr Matthew Nicholls, a recognised expert on ancient Rome. Matthew has extensive broadcast and public speaking experience on Roman history, and directs a specialist Masters degree on the ancient city in the Department of Classics at the University of Reading.

        Requirements
        This course is open to anyone with an interest in discovering more about ancient Rome. You might be: planning a visit to the Italian capital; an avid watcher of documentaries on Roman history; or considering studying archaeology, classics or history at university.

        Notiziario Italiano di Antichistica
        unzioni e regole

        Il Notiziario Italiano di Antichistica è un bollettino telematico di informazione sia sulle principali iniziative realizzate in Italia nel settore degli studi classici (convegni, seminari, incontri di studio) sia sulle nuove pubblicazioni (riviste, miscellanee, volumi, strumenti multimediali). Può anche diffondere notizie su manifestazioni culturali che si svolgono all'estero.
        Il Notiziario, fondato da Emanuele Narducci per conto della Accademia Fiorentina di Papirologia e di Studi sul Mondo Antico e ora diretto da Sergio Audano, viene distribuito gratuitamente per e-mail, con periodicità di un numero ogni tre settimane, a quanti ne facciano richiesta all'indirizzo di posta elettronica: notantichistica@libero.it (si precisa che non è un indirizzo automatico).

        Gli interessati sono pregati di indicare, nel messaggio di richiesta, il proprio nome e cognome e il proprio indirizzo di posta elettronica.
        Il Notiziario, che già conta numerosi sottoscrittori, raccoglie e diffonde le informazioni e gli annunci che riceve. Esso fa pertanto affidamento sulla attiva collaborazione di tutti gli iscritti alla lista di distribuzione.

         
        Regole per l'invio di annunci al Notiziario
        Si ricordano alcune regole fondamentali per l'invio degli annunci: ciascun annuncio deve portare nella prima riga il titolo dell'iniziativa cui fa riferimento, e nella riga successiva il nome e l'indirizzo di posta elettronica del mittente (si prega di astenersi da comunicazioni personali al redattore, che vanno eventualmente affidate a un messaggio separato inviato all'indirizzo: sergioaudano@libero.it).
        Il nome del mittente e il relativo indirizzo di posta elettronica saranno indicati pubblicamente (salvo esplicita richiesta in senso contrario). Gli annunci devono essere formulati come corpo del testo del messaggio, in 'plain text', evitando qualsiasi formattazione dei caratteri (il greco deve essere traslitterato). Sono accettati solo messaggi inviati da mittenti che risultano ufficialmente registrati nella mailing list. Per l'indicazione dei volumi si prega di adottare con la maggior precisione (di dati e di forma) lo schema abitualmente riportato. Si consiglia vivamente di inviare messaggi da ambienti Windows (e non Mac).

        AVVERTENZE IMPORTANTI: il Notiziario non può assolutamente accettare annunci inviati sotto forma di 'attachments' (e allegati di ogni tipo): ciò sia perché questi ultimi appesantiscono notevolmente i tempi di spedizione, sia perché molti virus informatici si diffondono proprio tramite gli 'attachments'.
        I messaggi contenenti 'attachments' vengono automaticamente distrutti. In ragione della finalità eminentemente informativa del Notiziario, circa le pubblicazioni si darà conto solo delle informazioni tecniche relative alla loro reperibilità (e, dove possibile, anche degli indici): i messaggi contenenti elenchi di titoli lontani nel tempo, riassunti, giudizi, o recensioni non saranno presi in considerazione, così come saranno ignorati gli annunci contenenti riferimenti a sponsor privati.
        Gli annunci che non si atterranno alle suddette regole verranno ignorati, così come non si darà conto di quelli palesemente privi di rilevanza scientifica e culturale (o tali ritenuti dalla Redazione).
        Quanti dovessero ricevere il Notiziario per sbaglio o senza averne fatto esplicita richiesta possono richiedere di essere depennati inviando comunicazione all’indirizzo e-mail del Notiziario (il redattore si scusa in anticipo per eventuali errori). Si ringrazia sentitamente per la cordiale collaborazione (la medesima procedura è valevole per quanti volessero iscriversi al Notiziario). A causa dell'alto numero di iscritti alla mailing list, la distribuzione del Notiziario avverrà tra la domenica e il lunedì successivi all'ultimo giorno utile per l'invio dei messaggi. Si ricorda di verificare sempre la data di scadenza per l’invio dei messaggi (non si darà conto degli eventi svolti in precedenza).

        È qui di sotto attivo un motore di ricerca per facilitare la consultazione dei numeri del Notiziario a partire dal luglio 2007.

        [Firsts posted in AWOL 3 December 2011, updated 17 January 2017]

        Corona Atlas & Referencing System
        CORONA is the codename for the United States’ first photographic spy satellite mission, in operation from 1960-1972. During that time, CORONA satellites took high-resolution images of most of the earth’s surface, with particular emphasis on Soviet bloc countries and other political hotspots in order to monitor military sites and produce maps for the Department of Defense. The more than 800,000 images collected by the CORONA missions remained classified until 1995 when an executive order by President Bill Clinton made them publicly available through the US Geological Survey. Because CORONA images preserve a high-resolution picture of the world as it existed in the 1960s, they constitute a unique resource for researchers and scientists studying environmental change, agriculture, geomorphology, archaeology and other fields.

        In regions like the Middle East, CORONA imagery is particularly important for archaeology because urban development, agricultural intensification, and reservoir construction over the past several decades have obscured or destroyed countless archaeological sites and other ancient features such as roads and canals. These sites are often clearly visible on CORONA imagery, enabling researchers to map sites that have been lost and to discover many that have never before been documented. However, the unique imaging geometry of the CORONA satellite cameras, which produced long, narrow film strips, makes correcting spatial distortions in the images very challenging and has therefore limited their use by researchers.

        Thanks to grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies, the University of Arkansas’ Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) has developed methods for efficient orthorectification of CORONA imagery and now provides free public access to our imagery database for non-commercial use. Images can be viewed online and full resolution images can be downloaded in NITF format.

        IMAGERY

        This project's initial focus was on the Middle East and surrounding regions, areas where CORONA coverage is abundant and where its value to archaeology and other fields has been well-demonstrated. The large majority of the images we provide come from the KH4B satellites, the latest generation of CORONA missions in operation from September 1967 through May 1972. During this time, there were sixteen successful CORONA missions, designated 1101 through 1117 which recovered more than 188000 images. These satellites were equipped with two panoramic cameras, one facing forward and another aft with a 30º angle of separation, producing an approximate ground resolution of 6 feet (1.8m) at nadir as well as offering the capability for stereo-viewing and the extraction of topographic data. Images were originally recorded on black-and-white film, copies of which are curated by the USGS EROS Data Center. The USGS has scanned the images at 7 micron (3600 dpi) resolution. Additional technical details regarding the CORONA program and image characteristics can be read here.

        Cameras on different CORONA missions produced images that vary a great deal in quality, while many images suffer from cloud cover, atmospheric haze or other issues. For imagery which we purchased, we have concentrated on providing the greatest possible regional extent, as opposed to multiple images of the same area, and have also sought to offer stereo coverage wherever possible. Imagery purchased for this project has been supplemented by images purchased for other projects or those shared with us by colleagues, notably the Center for Archaeology of the Middle Eastern Landscape (CAMEL) and the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute.

        Our work has been largely dedicated to developing methods for orthorectification of CORONA imagery. The technical aspects of this process are described in a forthcoming paper: Jackson Cothren, Jesse Casana, Tuna Kalayci and Adam Barnes, “An efficient method for rigorous orthorectification of CORONA satellite imagery” International Journal of Remote Sensing.
