Princeton University, Research Photographs, Archaeological Archives
http://www.princeton.edu/researchphotographs/images/534.jpg
The archaeological archives consist of unique photographic and textual documentation generated by over 100 years of expeditions and excavations conducted and sponsored by Princeton University. In addition to the primary corpus of photographs, glass plate and film negatives, drawings, there are supplementary materials such as journals, field notebooks trench reports and other ancillary records. Together these collections form a singular archive manifesting Princeton's continued participation in and sponsorship of excavations, a tradition that began in 1899 with Howard Crosby Butler's first expedition to Syria and continues with the excavations at Balis in central Syria.

Pomoerium: Studia et Commentarii Ad Orbem Classicum Spectantia
ISSN 0945-2354
http://www.pomoerium.eu/images/title01.gif

The project Pomoerium will focus on the achievements of classics-related sciences, and examine socio-economic and religious transformations, not as a stream of disjointed events, but as an intelligible and determinate process, whether involving a shorter or a longer time span.

It constitutes the efforts to render accessible to the interested public hardly-known ideas, journals and books and aims to contribute to the exploration and understanding of religious and socio-economic processes in the classical antiquity and provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of their various aspects.

Finally it serves furthermore as a naturally forum for the presentation and discussion of noteworthy issues, including the presentation of minority or at times controversial points of view.

Aerial Archaeology in Armenia

Wings Over Armenia
http://www.archaeology.am/pics/top.gif
In 2002, ACE and the British Academy funded the launch of Wings over Armenia. The project aim is to support Armenian science and the introduction and development of aerial archaeology in Armenia. The first stage of the project took place in June 2002 when Rog Palmer and Hayk Hakobyan conducted ground reconnaissance of an area identified for study from the air. The aerial exploration itself was planned to take place in late-September and October 2002. At the time, Wings over Armenia had virtually no equipment to carry out its intended work. Fortunately the project was discovered by the British Council, an organization disseminating the United Kingdom’s experience and creative vision in science, arts and education. The British Council Office in Yerevan responded generously to a plea for funding and enabled the scientists to acquire a two-person paramotor (powered parawing) for aerial exploration. 

Wings over Armenia is a pioneering programme within the states of the former Soviet Union. Its first stage will include systematic aerial survey and photography of the Kasach gorge area - 400 sq km of foothills and plains 20 km northwest of Yerevan. The project area includes known sites dating back as far as the Bronze Age, along with features such as field systems and road networks that can be effectively recorded from the air. Another element of the programme will be field visits to possible sites detected on 1970s satellite imagery [links to publications in AARGnews and Eurisy], and during the project’s own aerial survey. Results from Wings over Armenia will thus add immediately to the knowledge already known to Armenian archaeologists through field investigation and excavation.
Aerial photographs taken during this first programme of survey will be used to:
  • supplement knowledge about known sites;
  • record new archaeological sites and landscapes;
  • geo-reference and map the recorded features; and
  • establish the beginnings of an archive of Armenian aerial imagery.

The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library
http://www.deadseascrolls.org.il/img/logo.png

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) is very proud to present the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library, a free online digitized virtual library of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Hundreds of manuscripts made up of thousands of fragments – discovered from 1947 and until the early 1960’s in the Judean Desert along the western shore of the Dead Sea – are now available to the public online. The high resolution images are extremely detailed and can be accessed through various search options on the site.

With the generous lead support of the Leon Levy Foundation and additional generous support of the Arcadia Fund, the Israel Antiquities Authority and Google joined forces to develop the most advanced imaging and web technologies to bring to the web hundreds of Dead Sea Scrolls images as well as specially developed supporting resources in a user-friendly platform intended for the public, students and scholars alike.

The launch of the Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library comes some 11 years after the completion of the publication of the Dead Sea Scrolls, initiated and sponsored by the IAA, and 65 years after the first scrolls were unearthed in the Caves of Qumran. This digital library is another example of the IAA's vision and mission, to make these ancient texts freely available and accessible to people around the world. The Leon Levy Dead Sea Scrolls Digital Library represents a new milestone in the annals of the story of one of the greatest manuscript finds of all times.

Dolgopolsky's Nostratic Dictionary Online (3rd edition)

Nostratic Dictionary - Third Edition
Dolgopolsky, Aharon
2012
Aharon Dolgopolsky was the leading authority on the Nostratic macrofamily. It is with great sadness that we announce that he passed away on 20 July 2012. His 'Nostratic Dictionary' presented here is, of course, something very much more than a dictionary. It is the most thorough and extensive demonstration and documentation so far of what may be termed the Nostratic hypothesis: that several of the world's best-known language families are related in their origin, their grammar and their lexicon, and that they belong together in a larger unit, of earlier origin, the Nostratic macrofamily. It should at once be noted that several elements of this enterprise are controversial. For while the Nostratic hypothesis has many supporters, it has been criticized on rather fundamental grounds by a number of distinguished linguists. The matter was reviewed some years ago in a symposium held at the McDonald Institute, and positions remain very much polarized. It was a result of that meeting that the decision was taken to invite Aharon Dolgopolsky to publish his Dictionary - a much more substantial treatise than any work hitherto undertaken on the subject - at the McDonald Institute. For it became clear that the diversities of view expressed at that symposium were not likely to be resolved by further polemical exchanges. Instead, a substantial body of data was required, whose examination and evaluation could subsequently lead to more mature judgments. Those data are presented here, and that more mature evaluation can now proceed. This edition is Dolgopolsky’s final one as submitted in January 2012. It is revised and augmented by the author but remains unedited and unproofed due to his unfortunate death.

Project Volterra

The Project Volterra
The «Projet Volterra» was established in honour of the memory of the distinguished Roman lawyer Edoardo Volterra (1904-1984), whose widow left his substantial and rich collection of Roman law books to the École Française de Rome. A catalogue of the older items, with reminiscences by relatives and colleagues, has now been published by Douglas Osler as vol. 3 in the series Bibliographica Iuridica (Frankfurt-am-Main, 2006). The general aims of the Projet Volterra are to promote the study of Roman law in its full social, political and legal context.

The first phase of this project in Britain (Volterra I) ran from 1995 to 2004, based in the Department of History at University College London, being initially funded by the British Academy and then by the Arts and Humanities Research Board. Entitled Law and Empire AD193-455, it focused on later Roman imperial legal pronouncements and its primary output was an on-line searchable database of all imperial pronouncements in Latin from the late second to mid-fifth centuries. Although this phase is now finished, its product is a 'living database' that continues to be up-dated and maintained courtesy of periodic funding from the British Academy, which adopted the Projet Volterra in 2005 as one of its long term research projects.

The second phase of the project, entitled Law and the End of Empire (Volterra II), started in September 2005. This comprises two five-year research projects funded by the Arts and Humanities Reseach Council (2005-2010, 2011-2015), and it continues to be based in the Department of History at University College London. It carries on chronologically from where Volterra I left off. Based on a thorough analysis of the surviving texts and their transmission, the aim of this phase of the project is to produce a history, with supporting database and on-line resources, of the law (Roman, Germanic or ‘barbarian’, and ecclesiastical) in all its aspects in continental Europe between the end of the Roman Empire in the west and the Carolingian period.

The team working on the project initially comprised Professor Michael Crawford and Dr Benet Salway, based in the Department of History at University College London, where they were joined by Dr Simon Corcoran in 1999. The team was augmented by Dr Magnus Ryan, Faculty of History and Peterhouse, Cambridge for the first part of Volterra II (2005-2010).

YOCOCU(YOuth in COnservation of CUltural heritage) - 2010

YOCOCU was born in 2008 from an idea by Andrea Macchia, Luigi Campanella and Ernesto Borrelli with the aim to realize a network among young professionals and researcher working in the field of Cultural Heritage.

YOCOCU nasce nel 2008 da un’idea di Andrea Macchia, Luigi Campanella ed Ernesto Borrelli con lo scopo di creare un punto di incontro tra i giovani professionisti e ricercatori che lavorano nei diversi settori della conservazione dei beni culturali.

A due anni dalla sua nascita YOCOCU si è evoluto, divenendo un simbolo, un luogo virtuale dove la comunità di giovani riunita da scopi comuni ha potuto esprimere le proprie storie, i loro contributi alla ricerca e alla crescita culturale nei diversi campi che compongono il settore dei beni culturali: chimica, fisica, biologia, restauro, archeologia , architettura. Giovani professionisti e ricercatori sono chiamati con questo evento ad accrescere e rafforzare la consapevolezza di essere gli attori della società presente e futura e a costruire la loro identità come motori dello sviluppo di nuove conoscenze nel campo.
I professionisti più esperti sono invitati a raccontare la loro esperienza e a fornire le chiavi di lettura dell’attuale conservazione per definire insieme il futuro della conservazione
Una sfida intrapresa in un mondo in continua e veloce trasformazione che va affrontata tra competenza e creatività che interessa materiali, metodi e tecniche, resa unica dal contributo di tutti sia giovani che esperti.

YOCOCU è così un network che costituisce un punto di incontro per collaborazioni trasversali, interdisciplinari ed internazionali, ma soprattutto è una bella storia composta da vari capitoli, scritti da ogni partecipante. Tante storie vicine e lontane nell’argomento, nella tecnica, nella tipologia di intervento, tutte ovviamente interessanti.

The Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae Digital Collection
http://speculum.lib.uchicago.edu/images/speculum-banner.jpg

The Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae is a collection of engravings of Rome and Roman antiquities, the core of which consists of prints published by Antonio Lafreri and gathered under a title page he printed in the mid-1570's. Copies of the Speculum vary greatly in the number of prints, and individual prints were reissued and changed over time.

The University of Chicago Library's copy of the Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae contains nearly 1,000 prints and is the largest in the world. The Library's copy arrived in the 1890's as a part of the Berlin Collection, a large lot of books and manuscripts purchased for the Library from S. Calvary and Co. in Berlin.

Monumenta rariora: The Reception of Antique Statuary in Collections of Engravings
http://mora.sns.it/res_frameset/testata_monumenta.jpg
 Il progetto prevede la realizzazione di un corpus di repertori di incisioni a stampa sulla statuaria antica la cui gestione informatizzata permetta una fruizione ottimale e contestualizzata dei testi che lo costituiscono, in genere di difficile reperimento.

Il lavoro è stato strutturato su due fronti differenti ma correlati: da una parte la considerazione dell'oggetto rappresentato da un punto di vista archeologico e della sua storia collezionistica, dall'altra lo studio dell'incisione finalizzato alla determinazione di vari rapporti intercorrenti all'interno delle tradizioni culturali che afferiscono all'opera medesima.

La creazione di una base di dati scientificamente sostenibile, rigorosa e continuamente aggiornabile, si accompagna ad un sistema di utilizzo che permette agevolmente l'intera fruizione e che fornisce all'utente la possibilità di seguire dei personali "itinerari" di ricerca.


The project foresees the realization of a corpus of engravings collections on ancient sculpture. Its computerised management permits an optimal and contextualised fruition of the texts compiling it, which are generally very difficult to find.

The work has been approached from two different angles which are correlated: on one side, consideration of the represented object from an archaeological point of view and the history of its collection, and on the other, the study of the finalised engravings so as to determine the various underlying relationships within the cultural traditions referring to the work itself.

The creation of a scientifically sustainable data base, rigorous and continuously up-datable, is accompanied by a user system which easily permits its entire fruition and gives the user the possibility of following personal search" itineraries."

DGE en línea es la edición digital de los siete volúmenes publicados del Diccionario Griego-Español, que cubren la sección alfabética α - ἔξαυος. Aun siendo una obra en curso de elaboración, el DGE constituye en la actualidad el diccionario bilingüe más extenso y completo de la lengua griega antigua a una lengua moderna: incluye ya cerca de 60.000 entradas y 370.000 citas de autores y textos antiguos.

Εs un diccionario de autoridades, es decir, todas las traducciones y acepciones están documentadas con citas de autores literarios y textos documentales, corpus que abarca desde el período micénico y Homero hasta el siglo VI d.C. Está basado en una amplia recogida de materiales léxicos, que se hallan en continuo crecimiento debido a la publicación ininterrumpida de nuevos textos y de nuevas ediciones y estudios sobre el léxico y la lengua griega. A ello hay que añadir los bancos de datos de griego antiguo, cada vez más completos y sofisticados. Para más información sobre la historia y las características del DGE remitimos a la Presentación del proyecto.

Lo que aquí ofrecemos es una primera versión de DGE en línea, a la que seguirán otras. El texto ha sido codificado en XML, a partir de un esquema basado en las recomendaciones de la Text Encoding Initiative (TEI P5). Los lemas se presentan en un doble sistema de navegación (por orden alfabético o inverso) que permite un acceso rápido y eficaz a las entradas. Los artículos se visualizan uno a uno y estructurados, aunque por el momento de un modo básico. Vienen claramente distinguidos sus principales secciones y apartados. Todo esto supone ya un avance significativo en relación con la presentación condensada y apretada de los artículos en su versión impresa.

Para hacerse una idea de algunas de las características futuras de DGE en línea, invitamos a consultar LMPG en línea, edición digital del Léxico de magia y religión en los papiros mágicos griegos. Por su menor tamaño y complejidad, este recurso ofrece características técnicas más desarrolladas, que se incorporarán gradualmente a DGE en línea, del cual es, en cierto modo, un prototipo. En primer lugar está la implementación de un motor de búsqueda avanzado. Para más adelante quedarán la interconexión con otros recursos, como nuestro Repertorio Bibliográfico de la Lexicografía Griega o la incorporación de addenda et corrigenda. Tendremos igualmente en cuenta las sugerencias de los usuarios para mejorar la aplicación.

DGE en línea es un recurso open access, siguiendo la política institucional del CSIC, que en 2006 suscribió la Declaración de Berlín sobre el acceso abierto al conocimiento en las Humanidades y las Ciencias.

DGE online is the digital edition of the seven published volumes of the Diccionario Griego-Español, that cover the alphabetical section α - ἔξαυος. Although still in progress, the DGE is currently becoming the largest bilingual dictionary of ancient Greek: it already includes about 60,000 entries and 370,000 quotations of ancient authors and texts.

The DGE is a dictionary of authorities, which means that all the translations and meanings are documented with quotations of literary authors and documentary texts from the Mycenaean period and Homer to the VIth century A.C. Our work is based on an extensive collection of lexical materials, still increasing because of the constant publication of new literary and documentary texts, new critical editions and lexical studies, to which must be added the databases of ancient Greek corpora. For further information about the history and the characteristics of the DGE, please visit our Project Presentation

This new digital resource is a first version of DGE online, to be followed by others. The text has been encoded in XML validated by a schema following the recommendations of the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI P5). The lemmas are displayed in a dual navigation system (in alphabetical order or reverse) that allows quick and efficient access to the entries. The articles are displayed one by one in a structured view. The main sections are clearly separated, which is yet a significant advance in comparison with the condensed and tight presentation of the printed Lexicon. 

In order to discover some of the future features of DGE online, we encourage you to consult LMPG online, the digital edition of the Léxico de magia y religión en los papiros mágicos griegos. Because of its lower degree of complexity, the digitization of this small Lexicon is considered as a successful prototype: it provides some advanced features, such as the implementation of a customized search engine, that will be gradually integrated into DGE online. In order to improve this new resource, we will be glad to read your comments and suggestions

DGE online is an open access resource, following the CSIC institutional policy: our institution signed in 2006 the Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and Humanities.

    LMPG en línea (Léxico de magia y religión en los papiros mágicos griegos)
    http://dge.cchs.csic.es/lib/img/dge_64.png
    LMPG en línea es la edición digital del libro Léxico de magia y religión en los papiros mágicos griegos, obra de Luis Muñoz Delgado publicada en 2001 como Anejo V del Diccionario Griego-Español. Esta edición en línea está concebida como un paso más en el proyecto de digitalización de nuestras publicaciones. Ha sido realizada a partir de la conversión en XML del Léxico, con una estructura acorde con las recomendaciones de la TEI P5.

    Los papiros mágicos griegos, que se sitúan cronológicamente entre los siglos II a.C. y V d.C., ofrecen un amplio e impresionante panorama sobre las prácticas mágico-religiosas en el Egipto greco-romano. En este léxico vienen recogidos y estudiados más de dos mil quinientos términos relacionados con la magia y la religión atestiguados en estos documentos, tal y como se encuentran recogidos en las ediciones de K. Preisendanz (Papyri Graecae Magicae) y de R. Daniel y F. Maltomini (Supplementum Magicum). También han sido tenidos en cuenta algunos papiros editados con posterioridad a esta última edición. Para más información sobre el planteamiento y contenido de este Léxico remitimos a la Introducción a cargo del autor.

    En su contribución al volumen The Oxford Handbook of Papyrology (ed. R.S. Bagnall, Oxford, O.U.P., 2009, pp.644-660), titulada «The Future of Papyrology», Peter van Minnen señala (p. 652), junto a la presencia del corpus de Preisendanz en el Thesaurus Linguae Graecae, la existencia de este léxico, si bien lamenta que, en su versión impresa, no resulte tan útil como una “fully searchable database”. Esperamos que LMPG en línea constituya un avance significativo en esta dirección para los estudios papirológicos y sobre la magia y la religión griega en general.
