The Mamasani Archaeological Project: Stage One
The response from colleagues to the appearance of the first edition of The Mamasani Archaeological Project: Stage One was tremendous but, for various reasons, it proved difficult to distribute the book from Tehran where it was published. Although co-publication with a publisher in Britain, Australia or Europe was investigated five years ago, nothing came of these original enquiries. Earlier this year, we raised the issue of distribution and, with the assistance of Dr Abbas Moghaddam, we put a proposal to Dr Mohammad Mortezaie, Director of the Iranian Center for Archaeological Research (ICAR), suggesting the publication of a revised, second edition, as well as a downloadable PDF version, outside of Iran so that students and scholars with an interest in Iranian archaeology could easily access the book. To our great delight this proposal was approved and the result is before you.

Historische Literatur: Rezensionszeitschrift von H-Soz-u-Kult
ISSN: 1611-9509
http://edoc.hu-berlin.de/e_images/hub_logo2.jpg
Historische Literatur ist eine vier Mal jährlich erscheinende Rezensionszeitschrift von H-Soz-u-Kult, einem verbreiteten Internetforum für die Geschichtswissenschaften. Der Name steht für das Programm der Zeitschrift, denn Historische Literatur veröffentlicht ausschließlich Besprechungen aktueller historischer Publikationen und thematische Forschungs- und Literaturüberblicke. Sie berücksichtigt dabei ohne Privilegierung spezieller Forschungsansätze und Methoden ein möglichst breites Spektrum historisch relevanter Publikationen, die alle Epochen adäquat abdecken und fachliche, methodische wie regionale Aspekte angemessen einbinden. Dabei stehen die deutschsprachigen Neuerscheinungen im Vordergrund, jedoch findet die fremdsprachige Fachliteratur zunehmend Berücksichtigung.

Historische Literatur steht zudem auch für ein Experiment, denn die Zeitschrift bzw. deren Inhalt erscheint in mehrfacher Weise in hybrider Form. Die in den jeweiligen Quartalsbänden der Rezensionszeitschrift abgedruckten Besprechungen und Artikel wurden für H-Soz-u-Kult geschrieben und sowohl über den Mailverteiler einzeln an die Subskribenten des Forums verteilt als auch über die Websites von H-Soz-u-Kult in Berlin und des H-Net in Michigan der Fachöffentlichkeit zugänglich gemacht. Die Besprechungen eines jeden Quartals wurden zwischen 2003 und 2008 zusätzlich in sowohl elektronisch wie gedruckt verfügbaren Heften zusammengefasst. Ende 2008 wurde die Druckausgabe aus finanziellen Erwägungen eingestellt; seit 2009 erscheinen die Quartalshefte nur noch in elektronischer Form auf dem Dokumenten- und Publikationsserver der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Die Rezensionszeitschrift Historische Literatur ist ein Kooperationsprojekt in mehrfacher Hinsicht: den Inhalt steuern die Fachredakteure von H-Soz-u-Kult durch ihre fortlaufende Arbeit bei, weshalb sie auch das gemeinsame Herausgeberkollektiv der Zeitschrift stellen. Die technische Realisation geht zurück auf eine Zusammenarbeit zwischen dem Kooperationsprojekt Clio-online und den Mitarbeitern des von Einrichtungen der Humboldt-Universität, der Universitätsbibliothek und dem Computer- und Medienzentrum, getragenen Projektes edoc-Server (Dokumenten- und Publikationsserver).

Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft
At Wikisource
Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft (RE) ist die umfangreichste Enzyklopädie zum Altertum. Sie wurde ab 1890 von Georg Wissowa (1859–1931) herausgegeben und erst 1980 abgeschlossen. Sie führte die von August Friedrich Pauly (1796–1845) begründete Real-Encyclopädie der classischen Alterthumswissenschaft in alphabetischer Ordnung (1837–1864) fort und war als komplette Neubearbeitung konzipiert. Bis heute gilt die RE als Standardwerk der Altertumswissenschaft. Viele Artikel aus den ersten Bänden dieser Enzyklopädie sind mittlerweile gemeinfrei. Möglichst viele Artikel sollen hier sukzessive mit Hilfe von Scans digitalisiert werden.
Bis jetzt wurden 11671 Stichwörter erfasst, darunter 1.445 bloße Verweisungen. Eine vollständige Liste der bisher transkribierten Artikel gibt die Kategorie:Paulys Realencyclopädie der classischen Altertumswissenschaft. Eine Übersicht über die Bände der RE findet sich hier (über die in den USA zugänglichen hier), das Register der Autoren hier, Listen sämtlicher Stichwörter hier.

Reinhard on LAWDI

In the interest of promoting Linked Open Data, Punk Archaelogy, and recursion, I repost here the full text of Andrew Reinhard's contribution to Bill Caraher's blog The Archaeology of the Mediterranean Worldrecapitulating last week'sLinked Ancient World Data Institute.

Linked Archaeology is Punk Archaeology

June 6, 2013 §Leave a Comment
Andrew Reinhard gives us the scoop on the punk mentality and linked data practices in archaeology. 
So on Tuesday, I had a sweet guest blogger and people really liked it. So when Andrew Reinhard (a punk archaeologist of the highest order) wanted to post something here, I not only couldn’t say “no”, but I couldn’t say YES fast enough. And when he wanted to talk about  what he learned at the Linked Ancient World Data Institute (#LAWDI), I was all in.
(This is the SECOND time in less than 6 months that I’ve been lucky enough to introduce Andrew to the uninitiated (which I was as well about 8 months ago)).

So here are Andrew Reinhard’s thoughts on linked archaeology and punk archaeology:
“The idea that there’s such a thing as ‘final publication’ of archaeological material is bullshit.”
I said this to a room full of colleagues all of whom had a stake in the new-new thing: Linked Ancient World Data (or LAWD). The cool thing? Nobody disagreed.
The Linked Ancient World Data Institute (#lawdi) was an open source love-in funded by an NEH Digital Humanities grant spread over two spring, 3-day sessions. The first session was held in 2012 at the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World (ISAW) in New York City, and the second concluded this past Saturday, June 1st, at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. LAWDI, the collective brainchild of Sebastian Heath, Tom Elliott, and John Muccigrosso, was created to bring together a diverse and progressive band of scholars, librarians, and museum professionals of the ancient world, many of whom were also technologists, to explore the nature of Linked Open Data (LOD) as it relates to antiquity and how to share it across the Internet.
Ours was a multinational, happy band, female and male, older and younger, tool-builders and tool-users, some with projects completed, and others with projects just underway, some facile with the finer points of RDF and SPARQL, others not so much, yet all demonstrated good faith in the belief that we could help each other learn. And link. There were no Luddites here. There were only LAWDites.
Assaulted by unseasonable heat and humidity, we embraced “Digital Humanities chic”—cargo shorts and tshirts, flip-flops and sandals. This was Open Access fantasy camp fueled by coffee and alcohol. Run more like a workshop than a formal conference, papers were replaced largely by practice, jumping in feet first to understand what RDF is, what the difference is between a URI and a URL, how to mint URIs, how to make archaeological data discoverable and usable. “My data is your data, and your data is my data,” Tom Elliott said in 2012.
We followed the Freirean model of student-teachers and teacher-students, each learning from the other. Numismatists like Andrew Meadows and Ethan Gruber demonstrated the open data masterpiece that is Nomisma.org, while Dan Pett of the British Museum modeled his Portable Antiquities Scheme as a crowd-assisted project. Chuck Jones of the ISAW library discussed its digital collection practices and followed up with an Open Access tour de force via the Ancient World Online’s collection of over 1,200 OA journals on antiquity worldwide. Eric Kansa demoed his OpenContext.org site for hosting and sharing archaeological projects and there data. Sebastian Heath and I attacked issues in archaeological publication from two fronts, Heath by way of XML, HTML, and ISAW Papers, and me by way of making digital, linkable content available alongside traditional print publication.
Parts of each day were dedicated to “student” presentations, where both nascent and established projects in linked archaeological data were showcased, many of which came prepared with questions ranging from how to prepare data for global consumption, to how to link to established online geographical tools like Pleiades and Pelagios, and beyond. William Murray discussed his 3D project with ships’ battering rams used in the Battle of Actium. Rebecca Benefiel and Sara Sprenkle presented their prototype of a new web application involving the ancient graffiti of Pompeii. Katy Meyers argued for the need for open data in bioarchaeological collections and mortuary site datasets to avoid a sampling bias that limits interpretation of that data. There were a dozen more presentations like these on interesting, useful projects.
Each speaker came ready to share, ready to ask questions, and ready to receive help. The spirit of LAWDI created an incredibly supportive environment that allowed for free (and ego-free) dialogue about what to do with archaeological data not just to bring it into the world, rescuing it from inside a silo or behind a paywall, but also how to connect with tools and websites already in use in order to make data on anything from findspots to artifact types to cuneiform inscriptions more open and more useful in ways the holders of that data might not have even imagined.
Dinners and late-night hack-a-thons followed each day’s sessions, with smaller groups spiralling off to attack specific problems of ancient geography or naming authorities with code, or to discuss problems of archaeological data in a more theoretical way, supplemented with breaks in the action for air-guitar, rugby scores, and beer-runs. By the end of the BBQ on the final day, our brains were beyond full, but the inertia and creativity driven by the constant conversation carried all of us home to immediately begin working on existing projects and the next, new-new things for our respective disciplines.
If the above doesn’t sound “punk-rock”, it should. We turned the traditional conference structure on its ear and skanked on its head. Most people in the room over those three days had already embraced the DIY (do-it-yourself) attitude shared by all punks. If a tool doesn’t exist, build it. If you have a question, ask it. If you can help somebody, do it. The spirit of community was evident, and all LAWDites formed a tight bond by the end with the sense that we’re all in this together, and what we’re doing is for the greater good.
Many projects are either under-funded or are done for free, hand-coded in basements late at night or early in the morning, at times built with tools never intended for the purpose to which they were put. A big part of Punk is making noise with the instruments you have, learning by playing, and getting better by playing with others. Creativity thrives when there’s no money, and the Punk attitude drives us to find ways around these restrictions, often creating better, leaner end-products than if we’d had a bottomless pool of resources, time, and materials. We build because we have to. And we recognize the problems inherent in ransomed scholarship and in the old ways of thinking about archaeological data and how that data is/are made available. It’s Punk to question authority. It’s Punk to question the establishment. It’s Punk to question the status quo. We don’t do it to be subversive (most of the time). We do it because we feel there is a better way to go about the business of sharing information openly, and making that information easily discoverable and hopefully easy to use. It’s not about the money, and it’s not about the notoriety. But it is about the big picture and how we want to see the world. We live in it, and therefore we have a voice to change it if we want. That’s Punk. And that’s Linked Ancient World Data.
When I said that the concept of “final publication of archaeological material” is “bullshit”, I meant it with every cell in my body. Publication of archaeological data is the conversation-starter. While it might mark the end of the push for tenure, or the conclusion of the analysis of a pottery assemblage or hoard of coins, the publication contains the synthesis and ideas of only one author (or perhaps a handful). Who knows what other information can be gleaned by another set of eyes, another brain. How can that data be re-assessed, re-mixed, re-used, recycled? That questioning, that reconsideration is how we move our field(s) forward, and is how science works (or is supposed to work). And it’s also how Punk works. By checking our egos at the door when we submit our research, we can engage in an open and constructive dialogue with our current peers and those who come after, and our ideas on the ancient world will become more focused and occasionally overturned from those critical questions we weren’t afraid to ask.
Now that the Linked Ancient World Data Institute is formally complete with both 3-day sessions behind us, all participants find themselves at the vanguard of a Punk Archaeology movement. Join us online as part of the Linked Ancient World Data Initiative. Details of more formal meetups and hangouts, plus informal gatherings be they real or virtual, online or in London or New York or elsewhere, will become available soon and throughout the coming months. Better yet, don’t wait for these to happen. Do it yourselves. Use the #lawdi hashtag on Twitter. Subscribe to the Ancient World Online. Read the ISAW Papers. Google “Linked Ancient World Data” or “LAWD” or “AWLD”. You’ll find us. Be a punk. Join the initiative, and help create the new status quo of open, free, and shared archaeological data.
NOTE: I’ll update this post via the Comments area once the 2013 LAWDI program is open, as well as the Twitter archive and collection of links to get readers started.

The Art of Making in Antiquity: Stoneworking in the Roman World
This initial website documents the Stoneworking in the Roman World project which started in July 2011. You will be able to follow the project via our blog posts as we assemble images, interviews and data in collaboration with the sculptor, Peter Rockwell, for the final website. In addition over the course of the next two years we will be holding various events on stone-related themes in which we hope you will participate.

This research project is investigating the processes involved in the carving of stone during the Roman period. It is being undertaken by a team of researchers from King’s College London and is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.

Athenian Onomasticon
Sean G Byrne
Since the publication of the Lexicon of Greek Personal Names II (Attica) in 1994 and Foreign Residents of Athens in 1996, fresh epigraphic evidence has continued to emerge by the month in the form of newly published inscriptions and re-readings and reinterpretations of old material. This has entailed a steady enhancement in the state of the Attic onomsticon and prosopography, with new names added, evidence for known names and people supplemented, and misread or misinterpreted names abolished.

A gauge of this progress is provided only partially by the Bibliography, from which references are removed when subsumed by Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum items. A better indication is given by the Addenda / Corrigenda to LGPN, posted by us at regular intervals until 2008, recording the cumulative changes to be made to the printed LGPN II. And in addition to these there are the extensive updates to bibliographic references provided by the publication of such corpora as Agora XVI and XVIII, IEleusis, IRhamnous and SEMA, not to mention the sixteen volumes of SEG that have appeared in the intervening years.

This site makes available the complete up-to-date onomastic data for the population of ancient Athens, through a search facility, and through html files that present the latest version of the Onomasticon.

Artefacts©, Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques
Artefacts n'est pas un produit fini, mais un programme évolutif reflétant le travail d'un groupe de chercheurs : la base de données est donc perfectible, et le lecteur attentif pourra y trouver des erreurs qui sont corrigées dès qu'elles nous sont signalées. Le but du projet est d'offrir un panorama aussi complet que possible des formes de petits mobiliers archéologiques classés par grandes périodes. Il n'est donc pas question ici de reunir un corpus d'objets, mais seulement un répertoire de formes ("types") pour lesquelles on fournit, autant que possible, une définition circonstanciée, une bibliographie choisie et une chronologie. Les objets cités et les illustrations fournies ne le sont évidemment qu'à titre d'exemple. 
 
NB : l'ensemble de la documentation d'Artefacts provient de recherches archéologiques légales et de la bibliographie scientifique.
Artefacts is not a finished product, but a evolving programme reflecting the work of a group of researchers : the database can therefore be improved, and a careful user will find some mistakes which can be corrected as soon as we are informed. The aim of the project is to offer a survey, as complete as possible, of all forms of artefacts, arranged in wide periods. A corpus of finds is out of the question, Artefacts only aims to produce an inventory of forms (types) for which will be provided, as far as possible, a detailed description, a selected bibliography and a chronology. The objects mentioned and the illustrations are only here as examples.
NB : all the material of Artefacts comes from legal archaeological research and scientific literature.
Artefacts compte à ce jour 4 266fiches pour 133 687objets inventoriés.

EpiDoc Guidelines

EpiDoc Guidelines: Ancient documents in TEI XML
EpiDoc is an international, collaborative effort that provides guidelines and tools for encoding scholarly and educational editions of ancient documents. These are the Guidelines produced by the collaborative. In addition, the EpiDoc Website provides access to all the tools and collaboration environments supported by the collaborative.

EpiDoc uses a subset of the Text Encoding Initiative's (TEI) standard for the representation of texts in digital form using the Extensible Markup Language (XML), a technical standard promulgated by the World-Wide Web Consortium. It addresses not only the transcription and editorial preparation of the texts themselves, but also the the history and materiality of the objects on which the texts appear.

These Guidelines contain descriptions of the textual, descriptive, and other features that are often expressed with EpiDoc, as well as the TEI elements and attributes that are used to encode them. The links below provide a number of entry points into the full document and should be thought of more as a series of thematic indexes into the content of the Guidelines, rather than a single "Table of Contents" that reflects an ordered, hierarchical document structure.

Karnak (v 0.1.2) Projet d'index global des inscriptions des temples de Karnak
  • CNRS - Dépasser les frontièresCFEETK - Centre Franco-Égyptien d'Étude des Temples de Karnak, USR 3172 du CNRSProgramme « Investissements d'Avenir » de l'ANRLabEx ARCHIMEDEUniversité Paul Valéry - Montpellier 3

 Lancé en janvier 2013, le projet Karnak (CNRS, USR 3172 - CFEETK / UMR 5140, Équipe ENiM - Programme « Investissement d’Avenir » ANR-11-LABX-0032-01 Labex ARCHIMEDE) a pour ambition d’organiser et de rendre accessible la documentation textuelle issue des temples de Karnak.
Ce travail est fondé sur un dépouillement exhaustif des documents et inscriptions de Karnak collationnées sur l’original. Chaque document reçoit un numéro d’identifiant unique (KIU : Karnak Identifiant Unique) lors de l’intégration à la base de données. Toute la richesse des archives du CFEETK (photographies, fac-similés, etc.) est exploitée par le projet Karnak, directement connecté à la base de données ArchéoGrid Karnak et à la bibliographie en ligne du CFEETK.

Étroitement lié au projet Dictionnaire Permanent de l’Égyptien Ancien (DPEA) développé par l’équipe d’égyptologie de l’UMR 5140 (CNRS-Université Montpellier III-Paul Valéry), le projet Karnak offrira un outil d’accès direct au riche corpus des inscriptions de Karnak (hiéroglyphiques, hiératiques et démotiques). Toutes les informations relatives à un document (KIU) seront accessibles à partir d’une notice unique. Celle-ci comportera l’édition typographique de l’inscription ainsi que sa translittération, l’ensemble des photographies, fac-similés et tout autre document d’archives associé.

Cet outil en ligne, hébergé sur les serveurs de l’IN2P3, autorisera ainsi des recherches directes dans le contenu des notices et dans les inscriptions hiéroglyphiques par le biais de la translittération. Il fournira en outre divers indices permettant des recherches multicritères (noms des divinités, épithètes divines, toponymes, ethniques et lieux de cultes, éléments de titulatures, anthroponymes, éléments prosopographiques et vocabulaire des inscriptions).

Dime online: Datenbank der demotisch und griechisch bezeugten Personen aus Soknopaiu Nesos
http://www.dime-online.de/img/logo.jpg
Herzlich Willkommen bei www.dime-online.de, der online-Datenbank zur Prosopographie des Faijum-Ortes Soknopaiu Nesos (Dime)!

Diese Datenbank-Projekt erfaßt systematisch die in den demotischen und griechischen Texten aus Soknopaiu Nesos belegten Personen und personenbezogenen Angaben. Aufgenommen sind weiterhin die vor allem in Verkaufsurkunden erwähnten topographischen Daten, die es vielleicht ermöglichen, Teile des Stadtplanes von Soknopaius Nesos zu rekonstruieren.  

Die Materialbasis bilden zunächst die römerzeitlichen dokumentarischen Quellen. Die Datenbank soll es allen Altertumswissenschaftlern, unabhängig von ihren Sprachkenntnissen, ermöglichen, mit den prosopographischen und topographischen Informationen, die die Papyri und Ostraka aus Soknopaiu Nesos bieten, zu arbeiten.

Sie haben die Möglichkeit, die Datenbank mit und ohne Registrierung zu benutzen. Registrierte Benutzer können selbst Daten einpflegen.

What is the Acropolis educational resources repository?
The Acropolis Information and Education Department produces a range of resources that refer to many different subjects.
These resources aim to help teachers prepare themselves both for classroom teaching and for their school visits to the Acropolis and the Museum.
In collaboration with the National Documentation Centre (EKT), the Acropolis educational resources have been documented and catalogued in this repository.
All this content is now easier to manage, search, find and re-use by educators, students, families and the wider public, according to their needs.

What can I find here?
Teachers can find here reference material and prepare for classroom study or a visit to the Acropolis and the Museum. A range of resources, such as online applications, books, films, leaflets, museum kits and backpacks enrich classroom learning before and after the Acropolis experience.
Students will find here reference material about the Acropolis and its monuments, for their school papers.
Families and the general public can also find useful information here to prepare a family visit and enhance their Acropolis experience with rich educational content.

How can I use the repository?
Find here printable resources that will help you prepare for classroom study or a Site visit, like e-books for children and teachers’ material.
You may search the collection via various criteria such as Monument, Subject, Type, Education Level, or Typical Age Range.
Browse the photography collection, the video collection and the online applications and enrich your teaching, learning and understanding of the past.
