Kerameikos.org is a collaborative project dedicated to defining the intellectual concepts of pottery following the tenets of linked open data and the formulation of an ontology for representing and sharing ceramic data across disparate data systems. While the project is focused primarily on the definition of concepts within Greek black- and red-figure pottery, Kerameikos.org is extensible toward the definition of concepts in other fields of pottery studies.
See the github account at https://github.com/kerameikos, which contains repositories for the RDF data and the publication framework. This framework could be applied to other linked data thesauri.

Perseus Digital Library News: Beyond Translation -- new possibilities for reading in a digital age (DH Level 3)

WORKING DRAFT

August 29, 2019

I am writing to report that the Perseus Digital Library had the honor of receiving support for an NEH Digital Humanities Level 3 Project: “Beyond Translation -- new possibilities for reading in a digital age.” While this is just one project with limited funding, it reflects a larger potential shift for the study of Ancient Greek and other languages. When I began my career as a graduate student, more than a generation ago, specialists in languages such as Ancient Greek could only direct full scholarship at other specialists. Now, however, we are in a position to frame our understanding of such languages in a form that makes sources immediately accessible to non-specialists. From my perspective, this reflects a fundamental shift in the audience and the realizable goals for those of us privileged to earn a living as specialists on earlier languages from the human record.

The basic premise of the funded project is simple: the rapid evolution of reading environments has begun to open up a third path for reading, one situated between mastery of a language and dependence upon translations. For me personally, the need for such a third path weighs on me every time I log into Netflix and confront offerings not only in French, German, (various forms of) Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin and other widely taught languages but also in languages such as Turkish, Korean, Malaysian, and Hindi. Even if I had access to classes in each one of these languages, I would never have time to master them -- and there is always another language. ..

OZeAN: Online Zeitschrift zur Antiken Numismatik
Kommunikation und wissenschaftlicher Austausch finden heute digital und zunehmend online statt. Die Zahl der Museen und wissenschaftlichen Institutionen, die ihre Bestände online stellen, wächst täglich. Über die digitale Erschließung von Münzsammlungen und über digitale Fundmünzpublikationen liegt eine Fülle an Material vor, dessen weitergehende wissenschaftliche Auswertung großenteils noch aussteht.

In den letzten Jahren ist zwar eine Reihe neuer numismatischer Fachzeitschriften gegründet worden, die auch online zur Verfügung stehen, doch vom Charakter sind sie immer noch reine Printmedien. So fehlt dort in den meisten Beiträgen die direkte Verknüpfung mit nationalen und internationalen Projekten mittels der Linked Open Data. Die Vernetzung mit numismatischen Projekten, etwa AFE, KENOM, IKMK, NUMiD, NV BW oder nomisma.org und den darin eingebundenen Datasets, ist dabei genauso wichtig wie die Verlinkung mit Quellen anderer Bereiche, etwa der Archäologie oder der Geschichtswissenschaften.

Ebenso wird in vielen Publikationen die Einbindung von 3D Grafiken und hochauflösenden Fotos sowie von Audio- und Videodokumenten oft vermisst. Für Münzstempeluntersuchungen werden immer öfter 3D-Scans herangezogen, die es ermöglichen, auch kleinste Details vergrößert und von allen Seiten zu betrachten. Prägetechnische Experimente können in Onlinemedien zum besseren Verständnis mit kurzen Filmen dargestellt werden. Mit Hilfe von Tondokumenten lassen sich beispielsweise die unterschiedlichen Klänge von gegossenen und geprägten Münzen verdeutlichen.
Bd. 1 (2019)
Im ersten Band der neuen numismatischen Online-Zeitschrift werden wissenschaftliche Aufsätze, Materialvorlagen sowie Berichte über neuartige Möglichkeiten der Materialerfassung und -aufnahme veröffentlicht.

    Our warm welcome to the Umm el-Jimal Project website! Located in northern Jordan, Umm el-Jimal is home to almost two thousand years of fascinating history and culture—as well as a vibrant modern community. The best-preserved Byzantine town in the Southern Hauran region, archaeological investigation has been underway on location for over a century. This website is part of an ongoing international effort to understand Umm el-Jimal and its regional context from a holistic approach that integrates traditional academic research with cutting-edge technology and a deeply-rooted community perspective. We aim to make ummeljimal.org an evolving online hub for academic research, cultural preservation, sustainable tourism, and community development at Umm el-Jimal.

    LIBRARY

    The Umm el-Jimal Project's Library page is an evolving digital repository for journal articles, book chapters, reference works, and other publications and printed resources related to ancient and modern Umm el-Jimal. It includes academic and popular material about Umm el-Jimal, beginning from the site's modern era of research with Howard Butler's Princeton expedition all the way through the project partners' most recent work. Several of the works are out of print or otherwise unavailable. All items are made available to download for personal use only, and if under copyright remain the intellectual property of their author(s) and publisher.
    The project's main published work, Umm el-Jimal: A Frontier Town and its Landscape in Northern Jordan, Volume 1 (1998), is only available directly from the Journal of Roman Archaeology. However, the book is still in print; purchase inquiries are welcome at jra [at] journalofromanarch [dot] com.

    CDLI online sign lists
    The Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI) sees as one of its major goals the implementation of an online sign list for the early phases of cuneiform, ca. 3300-2000 B.C. This represents a period of often rapid development in both the graphic form, and the semantic or phonetic referents of individual signs of the cuneiform repertory that has, due to a number of reasons, not been well documented in the published Assyriological literature. D. O. Edzard's article "Keilschrift" in Reallexikon der Assyriololgie vol. 5 (1976-1980) pp. 544-568 presents the currently most comprehensive overview of early cuneiform development, and includes pp. 557-558 a list of published photographs of 4th and 3rd millennium cuneiform tablets recommended by the author in any attempt to clarify graphic sign development of that period of writing.
    The internet distribution of tablet images far outstrips the capabilities of paper publications in documenting the paleography of the volatile phases of cuneiform. As a first step in this documentation and at the same time as a freely available tool for work on the pages of the CDLI and other tablet publication forums, we offer here copies of the major sign list publications for the various historical phases of early Babylonia as these are understood in the general Assyriological literature. These will be replaced in time with electronically generated lists linked to the full grapheme data sets of the CDLI, and from there to glossaries and other interpretive compendia on the one hand, to the specific sign attestations supported by the digital images of the project on the other. These resources will represent the raw data for further paleographic analyses of the sort conducted and published by D. O. Edzard, M. Krebernik, P. Steinkeller, M. Civil and others (see the literature cited in the bibliographical reference Gelb Memorial Library of the CDLI).
    The following is a list of the currently available relevant publications, with those sign lists now online linked to their respective URLs.

    Abstract: Hittite was the language of the Hittite Empire that ruled over vast parts of Turkey from 1650 - 1180 BC. It was written in the cuneiform script on clay tablets. Linguistically, it belongs to the Anatolian language group, which is one of the twelve branches of the large Indo-European language family. Within the Indo-European language family, Hittite is the oldest attested language. In over 1200 pages this dissertation describes the history of Hittite in the light of its Indo-European origin. It consists of two parts. Part One, 'Towards a Hittite Historical Grammar', contains a description of the Hittite phoneme inventory and a discussion of the sound laws and morphological changes that have taken place between the Proto-Indo-European and the Hittite language stage. Part Two, 'An Etymological Dictionary of the Hittite Inherited Lexicon', contains etymological treatments of all Hittite words of Indo-European origin. One of the most important conclusions of this dissertation is that the Anatolian language group was the first one to split off from Proto-Indo-European and that all other Indo-European branches have undergone a period of common innovations. Therewith Anatolian, and especially Hittite, occupies a very important position within comparative Indo-European linguistics as it sometimes has retained linguistic information that has been lost in all other Indo-European languages.

    Report: Cataloguing Open Access Materials Workshop

    Cataloguing Open Access Materials Workshop
    The Combined Classics Library and Institute of Classical Studies, University of London, held a one-day workshop on Thursday July 11, 2019, related to the Cataloguing Open Access Classics Serials (COACS) project, which is now moving from journals to a focus on monographs. We invited colleagues from libraries, archives, bibliographic work and digital humanities. We were particularly keen to discuss the process of adding catalogue records for Open Access publications to specialist library catalogues, including:
    • sources of open access publication data;
    • pathways for ingesting data into our (and shared) catalogue formats;
    • workflows for adding necessary metadata such as subject headings to records;
    • issues around update and maintenance of records relating to OA publications;
    • identification of other consumers of this catalogue data and mechanisms for sharing the outcomes of this work.
    The COACS project was funded in 2017 by a strategic grant from the School of Advanced Study, which enabled us to hire a developer, Simona Stoyanova, to convert data from listings and web pages to MARC catalogue records, both to ingest into the ICS/HARL catalogue, and to make available for other institutions to re-use as desired. We received further support from the Classical Association in 2019 to consolidate this cataloguing work and begin planning the work on recording open monographs. In this time we have consulted with publishers, librarians and other heritage professionals on data standards and other technical needs.
    The July workshop aimed both to address a series of questions that remain to be resolved, and to engage the community of our potential collaborators and users of our shared data. The discussion, focussed on five main areas:
    1. Introductions to the participants and the institutions represented (several libraries, including ICS/HARL, Warburg, Institute of Historical Research, Senate House Library, British Library, Bodleian, Sackler, Research Libraries UK; publishers, including Open Library of the Humanities and University of London Publications; and JISC). We solicited recommendations of (a) sources of data on open access (especially classical) journals, monographs and other titles, (b) data formats and standards that might be useful to investigate for both ingest and export, and (c) other aggregators and discovery tools for this kind of data. The major incompatibility between schemata used by publishers (such as ONIX) and libraries (primarily MARC and RDA) was noted as a serious hurdle to overcome.
    2. We then discussed pathways to ingest and transform records from the source datasets (whether aggregators, other catalogues, or scraped from individual websites). Questions that arose included to what degree ingests can be automated or need human attention, and what levels of deduplication are needed—a print journal and an online journal may be two separate cataloguable entities, but there will potentially still be items in any ingest dataset that are already in the catalogue, perhaps with different metadata. Guidelines for data formats and especially vocabularies were felt to be very desirable. There was still no consensus on how to record analytic level records (articles/stories/songs etc. within a longer work) in either MARC or ONIX.
    3. After lunch the discussion turned to processes for enhancing records and metadata added to the library catalogue; which fields are likely to need to be added in the library, many of which may be specific or idiosyncratic to the individual catalogue, including: classmark; subject heading; keyword; searchable text (abstract); ORCID identifiers. One difficulty that was still in need of a solution was how to cross-reference between two related fields in MARC, to make it clear for example that a print and electronic item were “the same” book. We discussed whether ingesting large amounts of imperfect/incomplete data was preferable to never being satisfied with the quality of metadata, and also pondered whether machine learning might (imperfectly) help to produce metadata such as subject headings for sparse records with large quantities of free-text available.
    4. In the discussion of data curation and persistence, the biggest question was what to do about links to open access items that have disappeared from the web—could broken links be detected/flagged by software, or is human intervention always needed? We did wonder whether encouraging all publishers, authors etc. to submit works to a stable web archive, and including links (or allowing software to create fallback links) to archived versions of a resource) might be a partial solution; DOIs might also serve part of this solution, but there are still fragile points in the chain. The other issue with persistence is when data has been updated or added to: new issues of a journal appear, a second or expanded edition of a book or non-print-like publication. In these cases, do we need to test and deduplicate records again? Do we update or replace records—and if the latter, what happens to the data that have been added or enriched by the librarian?
    5. The final section of discussion considered who are the potential consumers of the data on open access resources produced by library catalogues, and in particular what digital humanities research might be enabled by making these records available as freely and in as many formats as possible. We were given a quick overview of the workflow of JISC’s National Bibliographic Knowledge-base (NBK), slides from which are reproduced in the online minutes. We considered what value has been added by a library project such as COACS, and the key features were: license information, open formats, and scale of data all in one place. We then discussed briefly the value of citation indexes and other novel research in this area, and were given a demo of the Cited Loci of the Aeneid tool (sadly Matteo Romanello was not able to be with us in the afternoon, so he was not present to discuss his own work).
    As is clear from the above, there were more questions than answers provided by this meeting, but it was a very valuable conversation. The minutes that we wrote collaboratively between us at the event, are online at tinyurl.com/COACS2019, with much more detail than this summary, lists of tools, projects and people, and links to many of the resources discussed. We hope that many of the participants will continue to stay in touch and consider how we can work together to these ends in the future.
    The next steps for the COACS project are (i) to clean up and finally ingest the journals data into the ICS Library catalogue; (ii) decide how to expose the c. 50,000 article-level records to the catalogue, and make those available; (iii) begin to collect data on open access monographs, and see how feasible it is to create (and deduplicate) catalogue records for these as well. In the meantime, all of the MARC records and the Python scripts we used to create them are available from the COACS Git repository, licensed for you to re-use if they are useful to you.

The complete collection, estimated to number more than 100,000 images, provides primary visual documentation of Jordan, including the major archaeological and cultural heritage projects that the center has sponsored across the country over the decades.

    Given its broad range of content and subject matter, the ACOR Library photographic archive has the potential to be a crucial resource for American, international, and Jordanian scholars involved in cultural and natural heritage preservation and management.

    As a first step in making this extensive archival collection available to researchers, the ACOR Library is cataloging, digitizing, and making accessible online ACOR’s major institutional and donated photographic holdings.

    The ACOR Research Library Photographic Archive Project is made possible under a Fiscal Year 2016  American Overseas Research Centers grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

    A Guide to Online Visual Sources in Middle East, North Africa, and Islamic Studies
    Let’s face it: every publication is better with images. Whether it’s a presentation, a blog post, a book, or just a paper, images engage an audience instantly. The internet is flush with images from Islamic art, architecture, and society, but reliable sources (with credit information) are more difficult to track down. So we’ve done it for you! Here are some of the best sites for finding credited visual resources for Islamic, Middle Eastern and North African Studies. Feel free to suggest more in the comments and we’ll update the list! Note this list is specifically focused on images and visual resources, but not necessarily manuscripts (for a guide to online manuscript collections, look at Evyn Kropf’s list here).
    Before we get started, here is a useful article on the copyright laws regarding digital reproductions of artworks in the United States from the Huffington Post. Remember these quick rules: If the original artwork is: (1) 2-dimensional and (2) In the public domain (published before 1923) and (3) the digital image of the artwork is a “slavish reproduction,” or not transformed in any way, then: the digital image is also in the public domain and may be used freely. It is always good practice to note where you got an image in your publication, however, if only so future readers –including yourself– can find it again! Most of these websites have preferred citations/credit lines somewhere on them. If the artwork does not meet the criteria above, you should request permission from the artist or publisher before republishing the image yourself, unless you are using it purely for educational, not-for-profit purposes.
    • Akkasah Photographic Archive at NYU Abu Dhabi: this archive, drawn from around the Middle East and North Africa, currently consists of over 60,000 images, of which more than 9,000 are currently digitized. Only low-resolution digital images are available online for free– Akkasah will send high-resolution files upon request, though fees may apply.
    • American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) Photo Archive: ACOR is in the process of digitizing its collection of over 100,000 images it holds in its collection. So far, 20,000 are online. The collections largely cover Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Iraq, with images of both daily life and archaeology. Images can be downloaded immediately, albeit with a watermark; ACOR can provide access to non-watermarked images.
    • American University of Cairo (AUC) Digital Collections: this largely includes slides, historical maps, postcards, and films spanning the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Naturally, there is an Egypt-focus (even quite an AUC focus), but images of other places in the Arab and Ottoman worlds can be found with a bit of digging; images of upper Egypt are also a critical component of the collection. Also notable is the Hassan Fathy Architectural Archives, which includes the papers and sketches of the iconic Egyptian architect, and University on the Square, which documents the Egyptian Arab Spring. Reproduction rights need to go through the American University of Cairo.
    • Arab Image Foundation Archive: The online platform of The Arab Image Foundation, Beirut’s non-profit archive of Middle Eastern photography, makes 22,000 images from the collection (so far) accessible and searchable. By registering an account, you can download the images as PDF files for non-commercial use.
    ArchNet: this entirely open-access portal, curated by the Aga Khan Documentation Center at MIT, is aimed at scholars and architects engaged with the Islamic world. It contains some digitized publications but is best known for its library of digital images which includes plans, photographs (both historical and contemporary) and descriptions of architectural sites around the world...

    Digital Ludeme Project: Modelling the Evolution of Traditional Games







    About

    The Digital Ludeme Project is a five year ERC-funded research project hosted by Maastricht University.
    This project is a computational study of the world's traditional strategy games throughout recorded human history. It aims to improve our understanding of traditional games using modern AI techniques, to chart their historical development and explore their role in the development of human culture and the spread of mathematical ideas.



    Summary
    The development of games goes hand in hand with the development of human culture. Games offer a rich window of insight into our cultural past, but early examples were rarely documented and our understanding of them is incomplete. While there has been considerable historical research into games and their use as tools of cultural analysis, much is based on the interpretation of partial evidence with little mathematical analysis. This project will use modern computational techniques to help fill these gaps in our knowledge empirically.
    We will represent games as structured sets of ludemes (units of game-related information), which will allow the full range of traditional strategy games to be modelled in a single software system for the first time. This system will not only model and play games, but will evaluate reconstructions for quality and historical authenticity, and automatically improve them where possible. This will lay the foundations for a new field of study called Digital Archaeoludology (DA).
    The ludemic model reveals innate mathematical relationships between games, allowing phylogenetic analysis. This provides a mechanism for creating a family tree/network of traditional games, which could reveal missing links and allow ancestral state reconstruction to shed light on the gaps in our partial knowledge. Locating ludemes culturally provides a mechanism for charting the transmission of mathematical ideas across cultures through play. This project seeks to bridge the gap between historical and computational studies of games, to provide greater insight into our understanding of games as cultural artefacts, and to pioneer new tools and techniques for their continued analysis. The aim is to restore and preserve our intangible cultural heritage (of game playing) through the tangible evidence available.
      

    Aims
    The key research objectives of this project are to:
    1. Model the full range of traditional strategy games in a single playable database.
    2. Reconstruct missing knowledge about traditional games with an unprecedented degree of accuracy.
    3. Map the transmission of games and associated mathematical ideas across history and culture.

    Special Issue Information

    Dear Colleagues,
    This Special Issue aims to rethink and reevaluate the Central Place Theory in light of contemporary developments in settlement archaeology, methods and archaeological thought by bringing together ‘central places’ and ‘un-central landscapes’ and grasping diachronically upon the complex relation between town and country, as shaped by political economies and the availability of natural resources. The chronological range of the volume is open, ranging from prehistory to the recent past.
    Micro-environments with natural boundaries (e.g., rivers, mountains, woods) and desirable resources (e.g., water, arable land, minerals) sustained nucleated communities and remained occupied for almost every period. On the other hand, ‘central persons’ may be as important as ‘central place’ and this is where the concept of political economy evolves. As T. Earle has eloquently argued on several occasions, all economic theories should recognize that, to whatever degree realized, power strategies were built on economic and ideological control over resources.
    Landscape archaeology is an area of study that overcomes the conventional boundaries between disciplines, such as anthropology, history and geography, and provides a fresh perspective and a powerful investigative tool to address research questions related to the conscious and the unconscious shaping of the land and the processes of organizing space, involving interaction between the physical environment and human presence. Temporality, spatiality, materiality and site-based analysis are all encompassed in the concept of landscapes, and therefore through its study much can be said about human responses to the changing conditions of life in the longue durée (i.e. the long term history).
    The volume wishes to include papers addressing ‘central places’ and/or ‘un-central landscapes’ from a political economy or/and a natural resources perspective. Moving away from model-bounded approaches, Central Place Theory is used more flexibly to include all the places that may have functioned as places of economic or ideological centrality (even in a local context) in the past, including urban centers, agro-towns, countryside settlements, burial and ritual topoi. The diversity of the different disciplinary perspectives and approaches, combined with dialogues, enriches our task of multiple interpretations, and should be seen as a healthy pluralism.

    Diktyon: Réseau numérique pour les manuscrits grecs 
    Diktyon
    Diktyon is a scientific network of digital resources and databases on Greek manuscripts.
    This network sprang informally from a workshop held in January 2013 at the Institut de recherche et d’histoire des textes in Paris (see conclusions of the workshop).
    Faced with the proliferation of digital resources on the web and the risk of dispersion of the data, the idea was to find ways to coordinate different enterprises in the field of Greek manuscript studies.
    The network operates through the presence of unique identifiers for items that are common to the different resources (shelf marks, authors, etc..). These identifiers are integrated in each database participating in the network, which then develops the necessary scripts to query other databases of the network trhough these identifiers.
    The first step to create this network is based on the creation of unique identifiers for manuscripts shelf marks that will be integrated in the different databases from the beginning of 2014. The creation of identifiers for other common items (authors, texts, people) will then follow.
    The Diktyon network is an open network that will extend to digital projects on Greek texts and manuscripts willing to join.

    Nestor: Bibliography of Aegean Prehistory and Related Areas
    minecraft_1.png
    Nestor is an international bibliography of Aegean studies, Homeric society, Indo-European linguistics, and related fields. It is published monthly from September to May (each volume covers one calendar year) by the Department of Classics, University of Cincinnati. An Authors Index accompanies the December issue. Nestor is distributed in 30 countries world-wide. It is currently edited by Carol R. Hershenson.

    The primary geographic nexus of Nestor is the Aegean, including all of Greece, Albania, and Cyprus, the southern area of Bulgaria, and the western and southern areas of Turkey. Nestor includes publications concerning the central and western Mediterranean, southeastern Europe, the eastern Mediterranean, western Asia, and other regions of archaeological research, if the specific bibliographic items contain Aegean artifacts, imitations, or influences, or make reference to Aegean comparanda.
