Museum Helveticum

Das Museum Helveticum ist die einzige Schweizer Zeitschrift, die Beiträge aus der gesamten klassischen Altertumswissenschaft veröffentlicht, einschliesslich der Papyrologie, Epigraphik und (mit Einschränkungen) Archäologie. Es will nicht nur die Schweizer Forschung fördern und repräsentativ darstellen, sondern auch die Kontakte mit der internationalen. Forschergemeinschaft pflegen und vertiefen. Entsprechend steht die Zeitschrift zum einen den in der Schweiz Lehrenden und Lernenden offen und versteht sich auch als Mittel der Nachwuchsförderung, zum anderen ist sie seit ihren Anfängen auch Publikationsorgan der internationalen Forschergemeinschaft; dementsprechend ist neben den drei Landessprachen Englisch häufige Publikationssprache. Entstanden ist das Museum Helveticum während des Zweiten Weltkrieges aus der Zusammenarbeit einiger damals führender altertumswissenschaftlicher Lehrstuhlinhaber, die, abgeschnitten von den bisherigen europäischen Publikationsorganen, der schweizerischen Altertumswissenschaft ein Diskussionsforum schaffen und gleichzeitig die Zusammengehörigkeit betonen wollten; die erste Nummer erschien 1944. Nach Kriegsende wurde die Zeitschrift zum Organ der schweizerischen altertumswissenschaftlichen Forschung.
All issues are published online 20 months after print publication.

Popular Archaeology
Popular Archaeology
Popular Archaeology magazine is a 100% online periodical dedicated to bringing archaeology to the public. We bring high quality original content, much of it produced exclusively for Popular Archaeology, for discriminating readers of the general public who have come to expect content similar to what can be found in the major print magazines. Unlike most other major magazines related to archaeology, no paper copies will ever be produced and distributed, so it will always be "green", and it will always be less costly to produce and therefore far less costly to purchase by premium subscribers (although regular subscriptions are always free).  Most of our writers and contributors are either professionals or top experts in their fields, or are individuals relating first-hand experiences; however, the magazine is unique among other archaeology-related magazines in that it makes it easy to invite and encourage members of the public (YOU) to submit pertinent articles, blogs, events, directory listings, and classified ads for publication.  As a volunteer or student, do you have a fascinating story to tell about an archaeological experience?  As a professional archaeologist, scholar, educator, or scientist, do you have a discovery, program or project that you think would be of interest to the world?  Do you have an archaeology-related service or item for sale? Would you like to have your archaeology-related blog post featured on the front page? ( Ad and specially featured item prices are lower than what you will find in any other major archaeology magazine).  Through Popular Archaeology, you can realize all of these things. Moreover, because the content is produced by a very broad spectrum of contributors, you will see more feature articles than what you would typically find in the major print publications, with the same content quality.
  
As a community of professionals, writers, students, and volunteers, we invite you to join us as subscribers in this adventure of archaeological discovery.  It could open up a whole new world for you.
Basic access to this magazine by the public will always be free.  Many of the articles are only available to regular (free) subscribers, and some of them, our highest quality original content, are only available in full to premium (paying) subscribers.

The House of Prisoners
ISBN: 978-1-61451-109-0
e-ISBN: 978-1-61451-097-0
ISSN: 2161-4155

Boston : De Gruyter, 2013.
Studies in ancient Near Eastern records, vol. 2 

This book deals with the house of prisoners (bit asiri ) at the city of Uruk during the revolt against king Samsu-iluna of Babylon, Hammurabi’s son. The political history of this brief period (ca. 1741–1739 BC) is not widely known and until now there has been no comprehensive treatment of the bit asiri. This book includes autograph copies, transliterations, and translations of 42 unpublished cuneiform tablets from various collections, collations, and detailed tables and catalogues. The analysis comprises some 410 documents dated or attributable to king Rim-Anum, one of the insurgents who attained relative independence as the ruler of Uruk. The study of this corpus reveals details about diplomatic dealings between the central power and rebel rulers, about the functioning of the house of prisoners of war, and about the individuals who participated in different echelons of the local administration. This monograph investigates what kind of organization “the house of prisoners” was, how it worked, how it interacted with other institutions, the composition of its labor force, and state management of captive and enslaved individuals.

Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk
The fight against illicit traffic in cultural goods requires the enhancement of both legal instruments and practical tools disseminating information and raising public awareness.
The Emergency Red Listof Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk aims to help art and heritage professionals and law enforcement officials identify Egyptian objects that are protected by national and international legislations. In order to facilitate identification, the Emergency Red List describes the categories or types of cultural items that are most likely to be illegally bought and sold.
Museums, auction houses, art dealers and collectors are encouraged not to acquire these objects without having carefully and thoroughly researched their origin and all the relevant legal documentation. Due to the great diversity of objects, styles and periods, the Emergency Red List of Egyptian Cultural Objects at Risk is far from exhaustive. Any cultural good that could have originated in Egypt should be subjected to detailed scrutiny and precautionary measures.

Overview

The Gabii Goes Digital Project provides an opportunity to develop innovative modes of publication for our own data, and to address broader issues in the communication and publication of born digital, non-traditional data sources in the humanities and social sciences. This project is composed of four tasks: consultation, peer reviewer community building, content creation, and peer review process development.

Consultation

In the early stages of this project we will conduct a survey of needs. The aim of this survey is to identify key issues and concerns about the peer reviewed publication of 3d models and related complex digital content. We aim to circulate the survey in academic, publishing, and cultural heritage management and government agency circles, so that the results will be representative of the views of the different communities involved in the publication and review processes.

A one-day seminar on spatial network analysis in classical studies, archaeology and cultural heritage.

Spatial relationships appear throughout our sources about the past: from the ancient roads that connect cities, or ancient authors mentioning political alliances between places, to the stratigraphic contexts archaeologists deal with in their fieldwork. However, as datasets about the past become increasingly large, spatial relationships become ever more difficult to disentangle. Network visualization and analysis allow us to address such spatial relationships explicitly and directly. This seminar aims to explore the potential of these innovative techniques for research in the higher education, public and cultural heritage sectors.

The seminar is part of Hestia2, a public engagement project aimed at introducing a series of conceptual and practical innovations to the spatial reading and visualisation of texts. Following on from the AHRC-funded initiative ‘Network, Relation, Flow: Imaginations of Space in Herodotus’s Histories’ (Hestia), Hestia2 represents a deliberate shift from experimenting with geospatial analysis of a single text to making Hestia’s outcomes available to new audiences and widely applicable to other texts through a seminar series, online platform, blog and learning materials with the purpose of fostering knowledge exchange between researchers and non-academics, and generating public interest and engagement in this field.

Classical Latin Texts: A Resource Prepared by The Packard Humanities Institute
    This website contains essentially all Latin literary texts written before A.D. 200, as well as some texts selected from later antiquity. These texts were previously available on The Packard Humanities Institute's CD ROM 5.3. You can find a complete listing in the Canon of Latin Authors.
    We appreciate your comments, suggestions, and inquiries. You can send them to us at latin@packhum.org.
      I've been alerted to the PHI Latin Texts Canon which is curiously absent from the site directory.

      demo.fragmentarytexts.org
      demo.fragmentarytexts.org is a site complementary to Fragmentary Texts and its aim is to experiment tools and devise methods for representing quotations and text re-uses of lost authors and works (i.e., those pieces of information about lost authors that humanists call "fragments"). Print collections of fragmentary texts are collections of textual excerpts drawn from many different sources and arranged according to various criteria, such as chronological order or thematic disposition. The length of these excerpts can be significantly different from one edition to another and depends on the editor’s choice. The aim of a digital collection of fragmentary texts is to go beyond the limits of print collections and express fragmentary sources in a more dynamic and interconnected way. 

      We begin by presenting different examples from ancient Greek authors (Plutarch and Athenaeus), whose texts are rich of quotations and text re-uses of lost works. The Revolt of Samos is a section where we have chosen the tradition of the Athenian suppression of the revolt of Samos (441-439 BC) to provide a test case for designing a "synoptical representation" of primary sources. We are also working on a section about Istros the Callimachean, whose goal is to present differences between a traditional print edition and a new digital one of the same fragmentary author. The first aim of these experiments is to visualize quotations inside their contexts of transmission, which is the basic requirement to understand the origin of a text re-use and its meaning.

      Middle Euphrates Digital Archive Online

      (First posted in AWOL 11 October 2011. Updated 23 August 2013)

      Middle Euphrates Digital Archive
      The Middle Euphrates Digital Archive is an ongoing project of the Dipartimento di Studi Asiatici, the Università degli Studi di Napoli "L'Orientale". It was conceived and carried out by Dr. Francesco Di Filippo, under the supervision of Prof. Carlo Zaccagnini, and with the financial support of the Italian Ministry of University and Research (MIUR). The project also benefited from the pioneered work of Dr. Stefano Bassetti (a former student of Prof. Carlo Zaccagnini at the University of Bologna), who in the late 80's carried out a comprehensive encoding of the Emar corpus.

      At present the online database includes all Emar texts published to date ‒ originating from the regular excavation or from the antiquities market ‒, thus representing the first thesaurus of this wealthy Late Bronze Age Syrian archive.
