An Atlas of Hillforts in Britain and Ireland

An Atlas of Hillforts in Britain and Ireland
http://www.arch.ox.ac.uk/files/logos/Hill%20One.jpg
Hillforts are one of the most prominent types of prehistoric monument across many parts the British Isles and Ireland as well as being the most obvious legacy of the Iron Age period. Despite fieldwork and changing interpretations of these iconic sites they are still poorly understood in terms of documenting and analysing the variation in characteristics and form across regional and national boundaries.

The Atlas of Hillforts Project has just been awarded £950,000 from the Arts and Humanities Research Council to try and remedy this situation. The Project will collect, collate and present data on hillforts across the UK and Ireland providing, for the first time, an integrated resource to serve research into this important monument type. It will run for four years from September 1st 2012 and has Researchers and PhD students based in both Oxford (responsible for England and Wales) and Edinburgh (responsible for Scotland, Northern Ireland and Ireland).

The aim of the project is to produce a paper atlas and an online searchable atlas linked to Google Earth. We are also considering other forms of dissemination and data collection such as Wikipedia. The atlases will show distributions of various sorts of hillforts (an initial challenge is to decide ‘what is a hillfort’?) together with analysis and discussion. Part of the aim is to produce a resource that can be used by students, academics and the general public.
This website is under construction and will include more details as the project progresses.

About the Cyprus Inscriptions Database

Welcome to the searchable online version of The PASP database for the use of scripts on Cyprus. This website contains the complete corpus of inscriptions offered in the print version, The PASP database for the use of scripts on Cyprus, Salamanca: Ediciones Universidad de Salamanca, 1996. (Suplementos a "Minos," num. 13), compiled by Nicolle Hirschfeld.

If this is your first time to the site, you should first consult the introduction to the material, as well as the notes on terms, abbreviations, and subjects employed in the catalogue. Search criteria include place, inscription number, date, type, nature, and material. These criteria are described in detail on the instructional page. You can sort results alphabetically by clicking on the column headers once the results appear.

Following a major upgrade and relaunch of the SMID Online (Studies in Mycenaean Inscriptions and Dialect) database in 2011, the Cyprus Inscriptions Database was similarly upgraded to a custom, build-from-scratch system that features better search capabilities and indexing.

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

ARCANE
The ultimate goal of the ARCANE project is to produce a reliable relative and absolute chronology of the entire Near East based on the synchronization of regional chronologies for the third millennium BC.

“Third millennium” is a conventional designation corresponding, in fact, to the period called by archaeologists the “Early Bronze Age”. In current terminology, the Early Bronze Age begins during the course or with the end of the fourth millennium, and its end may occur at the beginning of the second millennium, depending on the area. Hence, the chronological focus of the project is the third millennium BC, but the time span considered may infringe more or less on the preceding and following millennia.

Within this long time span, the project intends to review all aspects of the material culture, together with the artistic manifestations, the historical and epigraphic records and the various methods of dating (mainly C14, but also thermo-luminescence, thermo-remanence, dendrochronology, etc.).

Its geographical scope covers the entire Eastern Mediterranean and Near Eastern area, from Egypt to Iran and from Cyprus and Anatolia to the Arab-Persian Gulf.

Within this large territory, the study approach is regional: the aim of the project is first and foremost to achieve the establishment of regional archaeological sequences which will be ultimately synchronized in order to obtain a synthetic view of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near Eastern chronology. Hence the title of the project.

For working purposes, twelve regions have been isolated (see map) on the basis of a preliminary archaeological analysis discussed during the workshops organized in Pisa and Paris. These regions are: Southern Levant (SL), Northern Levant (NL), Cyprus (CY), Aegean (AG), Western & Central Anatolia (WA), Eastern Anatolia (EA), Middle Euphrates (ME), Jezirah (JZ), Tigridian Region (TG), Central Mesopotamia (CM), Southern Mesopotamia (SM), and Western Iran (WI). These regions constitute the operational framework of the Regional Groups.

However, since several archaeological data cannot be treated at a regional level and necessitate a wider treatment, the project has also a transregional, or transversal, dimension: the critical examination of radiocarbon dates, art historical studies, as well as epigraphic and historical evidence need to be considered in a broader framework. They constitute, therefore, the focus of additional research groups, called the Transversal Groups.

INTRODUCTION, SOMMAIRE ET ARTICLES EN FORMAT PDF

- Introduction
Hishâm ‘Alî b. ‘Alî
Vice-ministre de la Culture, Direction des Affaires culturelles
Cette édition du 8e numéro de la revue Raydân, qui porte sur l’histoire du Yémen et de son héritage depuis l’Antiquité, parait au moment où le Yémen traverse une nouvelle étape de son histoire contemporaine faite de changements au niveau local, régional et international ouvrant des horizons nouveaux pour une vie meilleure. Afin d’affirmer notre volonté d’avancer, sur le plan culturel, en harmonie avec un monde en changement, nous avons souhaité que la parution de ce numéro de la revue Raydân soit portée par deux institutions qui ont à cœur de faire connaître, à ceux qui aspirent à connaître le passé pour mieux assurer leurs pas vers un futur meilleur, des visions nouvelles et des réflexions originales sur l’histoire ancienne du Yémen. Elles sont ici proposées par un groupe de spécialistes appartenant à différents pays.
Ce numéro conduit nos pas vers des mondes étonnants, tout d’abord à travers les vestiges archéologiques et culturels de la ville ancienne de Sanaa (Yûsuf M. ‘Abdallâh), puis à Hayd Hinna (Nisâb) vers de nouvelles inscriptions qatabanites, ensuite dans la pénombre de la grotte de Ma‘amr vers des gravures rupestres venues de temps reculés, ensuite vers le Yamanat en abordant le titre royal attribué aux souverains himyarites (Nâsir S. Abtûr), de même vers la plus ancienne mention d’unification dans une inscription sabéenne (Fahmî al-Aghbarî), ou encore la trame d’un complot noué entre des Aksoumites et un personnage yéménite pour assassiner le roi himyarite Dhû Nawas (Hamûd M. G. al-Saqqâf). Ce panorama est enrichi de-ci de-là par la présentation de nouvelles statues et inscriptions, de résultats de fouilles en divers lieux à travers le pays qui nous mènent à Shuqra, al-A‘mâs et al-‘Usaybiyya. De même, des archéologues russes nous réservent la primeur d’un rapport préliminaire de leurs fouilles, avec des travaux divers qui couvrent des domaines scientifiques variés.
Le contenu de ce numéro 8 de la revue Raydân se distingue tout particulièrement par le nombre des contributions, outre celles déjà évoquées ci-dessus, celles aussi présentées en français ou en anglais par des chercheurs européens, français et autres. Ce volume fait connaitre de manière particulièrement remarquable les réflexions et savoirs nouveaux d’un groupe d’éminents savants, ainsi que de leurs étudiants qui leur emboîtent le pas dans leurs recherches.
Nous tenons ici à remercier l’équipe éditoriale du CEFAS pour l’aide apportée à rassembler et rendre public ces contributions sur le site de leur centre.
Ce numéro est dédié à la mémoire de l’historien et archéologue Muhammad ‘Abd al-Qâdir Bâfaqih. Il a été le fondateur de la revue Raydân dans des conditions difficiles et lui a permis de perdurer par-delà de multiples obstacles de sorte qu’elle est devenue au fil des ans, une référence dans l’histoire et la civilisation du Yémen antique.

Créée en 1971, Paléorient est une revue internationale pluridisciplinaire qui favorise les échanges d’idées entre préhistoriens, archéologues et tout spécialiste menant des recherches sur l’évolution de l’Homme et de son environnement, depuis son apparition jusqu’aux débuts de la civilisation urbaine L’aire géographique couverte s’étend de la Méditerranée à l’Indus, de l’Asie centrale au golfe persique. 

Publiée par le CNRS, la revue privilégie les articles de synthèse auxquels s’ajoutent notes d’information et recensions. Paléorient paraît deux fois par an ; les articles sont en langue française ou anglaise, et des numéros thématiques sont régulièrement proposés. 

Paléorient est le lieu naturel de présentation et de discussion des progrès de la recherche dans tous les domaines de la préhistoire et de la protohistoire moyen-orientale et centre asiatique. 

Le site Internet de la revue comporte, quant à lui, les recommandations aux auteurs et surtout une base de données bibliographique de plus de 16 000 références.

A Concise Dictionary of Akkadian: Addenda, corrigenda, and supporting bibliography
A Concise Dictionary of Akkadian, edited by Jeremy Black, Andrew George, and Nicholas Postgate, with the assistance of Tina Breckwoldt, Graham Cunningham, Marie-Christine Ludwig, Clemens Reichel, Jonathan Blanchard Smith, Junko Taniguchi and Cornelia Wunsch, was published in Wiesbaden in 1999 by Harrassowitz Verlag, and reprinted the following year with minor corrections. This archive is intended to act as a supplement for users of the dictionary, fulfilling several functions as described below. If sufficient use is made of this web-site, our intention is to up-date the list periodically, perhaps once a year. The majority of new entries would then no longer be justificatory, and the editors welcome further proposals for improvements and additional entries (address above). Where these are adopted they are appropriately attributed and dated. In the preparation of the first edition of the dictionary pressure of time did not permit us to take full account of all the material in the reviews of the two dictionaries and in the AfO listings, although a fair amount was incorporated from these sources.  For the second edition, we shall attempt to remedy this, and also to revise any letters which have since appeared in CAD (from R onwards). We will also take account of reviews of the CDA. This material will in due course be woven into this web-site, so that it should function as a rolling preview of the second edition. 
 The above is the site as originally presented by Nicholas Postgate at Cambridge.

Immensa Aequora Database
http://www.immensaaequora.org/img/header-blu.jpg
ARCHAEOLOGIC AND ARCHAEOMETRIC DATA BANK OF CERAMICS PRODUCED IN ITALY
ACCESS TO THE DATABASE

What is it about ? 

The database is meant to provide archaeologists - as well as a wider audience - with a reference tool on the topic. It contains archaeological, topographical, chemical and mineralogical data, both published and unpublished, regarding the ceramics produced in Central and Southern Italy on which laboratory analyses have been carried out (so far, the regions under review are: Tuscany, Lazio, Campania and Sicily). A section of the database is entirely devoted to shipwrecks which carried amphorae and ceramics produced in Central and Southern Italy, together with victuals, through the Mediterranean Sea. Database queries may concern the location of production sites (and shipwrecks), the extrapolation of the ceramics produced in a specific site or in an area, the linking up between archaeological data (typological and epigraphic data) and lab-analyses. It is also possible to examine the whole bibliography about production areas and relevant ceramics. 

How is the database organized ? 

The database (realized by CILEA - Milan) can be searched by SITE, SHIPWRECK, POTTERY CLASS/FORM, EPIGRAPHIC DATA, LAB-ANALYSIS, BIBLIOGRAPHY. It has a flexible relational structure for data management in tables and a basic user interface for data entry by means of masks. The large amount of such heterogeneous data requires the creation of a complex architecture for recording and the development of a methodological process for entering the data and querying them. The core of the structure is the object (pottery), which is described according to its physical and morpho-typological features, the find- context (Site table) and its production site, together with graphic and photographic documentation. 

The other tables contain information about the workshops (Workshop/Handicraft district table) and the kilns (Kiln table) where the objects were made. The object data can be linked up with the ones related to the ceramic fabric (the raw material) and to its features and production techniques (Fabric table). 

Another possible link is the one to epigraphic data (Stamp table), which can be viewed straight within the mask. As for the pottery finds undergoing laboratory analyses, it is also possible to have access to the results of the chemical (Chemical analyses table) and mineralogical (Mineralogical analyses table) analyses already carried out.

Who is at work ? 

The scientific project has first arisen from an idea of G. Olcese. Cilea (Milan) is working on its implementation. The working group in Rome (C. Coletti, G. Olcese, I. Manzini) has systematized the contents.

Trismegistos Authors
A database of Ancient Authors and Works by  Trismegistos
http://www.trismegistos.org/img/tm_logo_web2.png
This beta version of Trismegistos Authors is the result of work in progress on the Leuven Database of Ancient Books. The Trismegistos Team is currently converting the information on attestations and quotations of ancient authors and their works to a new relational system.
Once ready, the user will be able to navigate from authors and works to attestations and quotes, but right now TM has only covered the non-christian part of the manuscripts included in the LDAB, and even that still has to be checked.

Checking the existing references and converting the christian material to the same system will probably take until late September, and we therefore urge the LDAB user to continue using the old system, which will remain in function until then.

Please also note that this new database of Authors is in the first instance a tool to facilitate navigation in the various sections of Trismegistos: Texts attested in manuscripts dated before AD 800, place names from Egypt in Trismegistos Places, and in the future also some attestations of individuals from Ptolemaic Egypt. This explains some of the lacunae such as e.g. Tacitus.

1. Claudio De Stefani, Galeni De differentiis febrium versio Arabica (Bologna 2004)
Hunain ibn Ishâq di al-Hîra (808-873[?] d.C.), medico e filologo, autore di opere originali e di versioni in siriaco e in arabo, fu il più grande traduttore arabo medioevale, ed uno dei più grandi in assoluto nella storia mondiale. A documento di questa fama, gli furono anche attribuite nei mss. arabi varie traduzioni dal greco che non gli appartengono. La maggior parte delle sue versioni dal greco riguarda il corpus delle opere di Galeno di Pergamo (128/131-210/213 d. C.). Qui, presentiamo la traduzione di un’opera patologica di Galeno sulle febbri (in due libri), che ebbe ampia fortuna nella Grecia bizantina, come testimonia il numero abbastanza elevato di mss. greci che la tramandano e vari sunti su questo tema; in Occidente, come mostrano le traduzioni latine dal greco, a partire da quella di Burgundio; e infine nell’Oriente arabo, dove le dottrine galeniche sulle febbri erano destinate a lunga vita. L’edizione consultabile in forma elettronica può risultare utile sia agli studiosi di Galeno, sia agli arabisti, sia agli storici della medicina.

New and Improved Nomisma.org Released 
Friday, July 12, 2013
Today we have released the new and improved Nomisma.org.  There have been some updates to fix consistency problems in the data.  One of the major improvements is the importation of multilingual labels pulled from dbpedia through the XForms-based editing interface (I'll write up a blog post to discuss the Nomisma back-end eventually, and probably write up something more detailed for publication in code4lib or CAA).  In addition to data improvements, we have introduced some major new functionalities:

 SPARQL endpoint (http://nomisma.org/sparql)


 The new Nomisma server employs an RDF triplestore and SPARQL endpoint based on Apache Fuseki.  The endpoint is detailed in an older post, "How to Participate in OCRE."  Instead of launching a triplestore specifically for OCRE, we have launched it more generally for Nomisma.  Therefore, we can insert into it RDF describing non-Roman imperial coins.  OCRE, then, queries the Nomisma triplestore to power its mapping, quantitative analysis, and thumbnail-displaying capabilities.  When we release the new linked data-aware OCRE (which will contain all RIC types through Commodus) within the next few weeks, I'll provide a more detailed blog post about how OCRE functions...

Monete al femminile, database multifunzionale

Monete al femminile, database multifunzionale
http://www.numismatica.unibo.it/monete/images/titolo.jpg
Monete al femminile è un database multifunzionale, incentrato sul censimento informatizzato della documentazione numismatica relativa ai personaggi femminili della famiglia imperiale, emessa tra periodo augusteo e periodo teodosiano.

Allo stato attuale, il database comprende circa 2300 record, relativi all'intera produzione monetale di zecca ufficiale, ed è in corso di implementazione attraverso l'inserimento delle emissioni di zecca provinciale. La compilazione delle schede è stata eseguita tramite lo spoglio critico dei principali cataloghi e repertori numismatici (RIC, BMCRE, BNCMER, RPC, etc.).
La tabella di raccolta dati primaria è articolata in un set di campi che definiscono le connotazioni specifiche di ciascuna emissione, focalizzando l'attenzione sui singoli elementi iconografici ed epigrafici che determinano la complessità del tipo monetale.
La realizzazione del database si inserisce nell'ambito del progetto Lexicon Iconographicum Numismaticae (LIN), promosso dalle cattedre di Numismatica delle Università di Messina, Bologna, Genova e Milano. La banca dati, concepita originariamente come strumento di supporto all'indagine numismatica, ha sviluppato in corso di realizzazione modifiche strutturali, volte ad una prospettiva di fruizione ampliata oltre il contesto specialistico strettamente numismatico.
La creazione di ulteriori tabelle ha permesso di correlare le immagini di esemplari specifici alle descrizioni delle tipologie monetali, collegando inoltre attestazioni epigrafiche, profili prosopografici e riferimenti bibliografici pertinenti ai personaggi femminili censiti.
La scelta di un software estremamente flessibile (FileMaker Pro 10 Advanced) ha favorito la creazione di uno strumento facilmente accessibile, predisposto per la fruizione sia in modalità offline – tramite l'esecuzione di soluzioni runtime – sia in ambiente web.
Il database è distribuito attraverso una licenza Creative Commons "Attribuzione - Non commerciale - Non opere derivate - 2.5 Italia".

La versione Demo 1.3 contiene i record delle emissioni monetali comprese tra l'età augustea e l'età di Adriano (eccetto Vibia Sabina). Non sono inclusi esempi di schede epigrafiche, prosopografiche e bibliografiche, la cui compilazione è tuttora in corso.

Karl Preisendanz (1883-1968)
https://www.propylaeum.de/fileadmin/img/logo_propylaeum.gif
Ein Bibliothekar in der Wissenschaft - ein Wissenschaftler in der Bibliothek

Karl Preisendanz (1883-1968) war Direktor der Landesbibliothek Karlsruhe und von 1934 bis 1945 der Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg. Als international anerkannter Papyrologe und Paläographie- und Handschriftenspezialist gilt er als einer der bedeutendsten Persönlichkeiten in der badischen Wissenschaftslandschaft der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts.
Der größte Teil seines Nachlasses ging nach seinem Tod an die Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg (Signatur Heid. Hs. 3763). Neben einer umfassenden Sammlung von Sonderdrucken eigener Veröffentlichungen befinden sich darunter hauptsächlich Manuskripte späterer Publikationen, Vorträge und Vorlesungen und insbesondere eine außerordentlich umfangreiche Korrespondenz mit Briefen zahlreicher Gelehrter und Fachkollegen seiner Zeit.


Vollständig erschlossen werden soll der bislang nur zu einem kleineren Teil erfasste Briefnachlass. Basierend auf verschiedenen Vorarbeiten der letzten Jahre wird der Nachlass nun in der Nachlassdatenbank „Kalliope“ erschlossen sowie Bild- und Aktenmaterial in Auswahl digitalisiert und online bereitgestellt.

Das Heidelberger Projekt "Zwischen „Anthologia Palatina“ und Zauberpapyri: Erschließung, Erhaltung und Bereitstellung des Nachlasses des Papyrologen und Bibliothekars Karl Preisendanz (1883-1968) im Bestand der Universitätsbibliothek Heidelberg" wird von der Stiftung Kulturgut Baden-Württemberg gefördert. Projektlaufzeit: 01.06.2013 - 30.11.2014
