Online Resources from the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, NYU
ISAW was founded to support research in the ancient world, and publication—in print, online, and in person—is one of the key ways we share our research methodologies and findings with both other scholars and the general public. This page describes some of publications that have been produced by ISAW or under its sponsorship. As outlined in the faculty statement on assessment of research (PDF), we aim for quality and long-term accessibility in all our research outputs, regardless of medium, while embracing collaboration and both traditional and new forms of review and assessment.

Surveying the Field: Toward Establishing a Digital Collaboration Space for Educators of the Ancient World

Surveying the Field: Toward Establishing a Digital Collaboration Space for Educators of the Ancient World
As educators, we tend to work independently on developing our own creative pedagogies for student and public engagement. As such, the field largely lacks a venue in which to share best practices and unite educators from sister disciplines around this common goal. In order to create a community to engage in ongoing dialogue about pedagogy, it is important that the design of any potential resource reflect the needs of the diverse community of users. As such, this survey is designed to query members of the academy on their pedagogical needs and interests, as well as the potential utility of such a resource. It will therefore serve as a first step toward creating an online resource to serve educators of the ancient world. Please expect to spend approximate 8 to 10 minutes on your answers. Your participation is appreciated to help conceptualize the unique needs of our teaching community.

Archaeology and Text: A Journal for the Integration of Material Culture with Written Documents in the Ancient Mediterranean and Near East
The study of the human past has conventionally been divided between two distinct academic disciplines depending upon the kind of evidence under investigation: “history”, with its focus on written records, and “archaeology”, which analyzes the remains of material culture.  Archaeology and Text: A Journal for the Integration of Material Culture with Written Documents in the Ancient Mediterranean and Near East aims to bridge this disciplinary divide by providing an international forum for scholarly discussions which integrate the studies of material culture with written documents. Interdisciplinary by nature, the journal offers a platform for professional historians and archaeologists alike to critically investigate points of confluence and divergence between the textual and the artifactual. We seek contributions from scholars working in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East.  Contributions with a theoretical or methodological focus on the interface between archaeology and text are especially encouraged. By publishing all of its articles online, the Archaeology and Text seeks to disseminate its published papers immediately after the peer-review and editorial processes have been completed, providing timely publication and convenient access.

Byblos. Bollettino del Museo Papirologico dell'Università del Salento
Il Museo Papirologico dell’Università del Salento fu fondato nell’àmbito di un Progetto coordinato delle Università di Lecce e di Catania finanziato dalla Comunità Europea.

Cuneiform Digital Library Preprints (CDLP)
CDLI is pleased to present here the results of research in progress submitted, for inclusion in a preprint series hosted by the project, by experts in fields associated with Assyriology and Ancient Near Eastern Archaeology. We anticipate that these papers in their final form will eventually be available in journals (in some cases our own) or in edited volumes; or will, by authors' preference, remain unpublished in the formal sense, so that this may be a final venue for work that might otherwise remain unnoticed in the field. Authors who are interested in submitting contributions to the CDLP should be generally aware of the editorial policies of the journals CDLJ& CDLB; while submissions in English are preferred, CDLP does, however, accept preprints in the other major languages of academic communication. Significant and nearly complete, or dormant research papers are particularly welcome, regardless of their length and scope. Authors should make their submissions in both originating text-processor/layout file, and in the PDF format in which it will be made available here. International A4 or US letter format are both allowed, portrait or landscape. In most cases, if the submission is acceptable for distribution, we will merely add a lead page of the form visible in the files listed below. We invite interested authors to make use of this series to communicate their research to a broader community in advance or in stead of undertaking the rigors of a peer-reviewed standard publication, and we hope the feedback that results from a paper’s dissemination through CDLP contributes to its ultimate impact.

Réflexion(s) – Regards croisés sur le monde antique et le monde moderne
ISSN : 2100-0034
Réflexion(s) est une revue thématique réalisée par des spécialistes de l'antiquité gréco-latine.
Chaque thème analyse une question qui intéresse le monde actuel en la mettant en relation avec des événements, des textes ou des personnages antiques. Notre but est de réfléchir autrement sur notre temps et nos sociétés, mais aussi de comprendre pourquoi la connaissance de notre antiquité est encore indispensable pour penser le monde d'aujourd'hui. Ce but est, plus largement, le but des études classiques : la lecture de Cicéron ou la visite des ruines de Pompéi sont un miroir dans lequel nous pouvons apprendre à voir avec un peu de recul (et donc un peu plus clairement) notre époque.

ISSN 1720-3694
Qualcuno potrebbe chiedersi se, in presenza di numerosi e autorevoli periodici di diritto romano e diritti dell'antichità pubblicati anche e soprattutto in Italia, fosse proprio il caso di metterne in cantiere uno nuovo: se fosse un lettore tendenzialmente benevolo e animato da incrollabile fiducia nel principio della concorrenza, potrebbe forse dare risposta positiva affermando che l'ingresso di un nuovo operatore sul mercato (!) dovrebbe portare a un miglioramento dell'offerta in generale.

Excavations at Thebes: The Earl of Carnarvon and the Metropolitan Museum of Art at Carnarvon 62 and Surrounds

Excavations at Thebes: The Earl of Carnarvon and the Metropolitan Museum of Art at Carnarvon 62 and Surrounds
Christine Lilyquist, et al.
This interactive digital application is a final report for excavations undertaken by the Earl of Carnarvon and The Metropolitan Museum of Art at Thebes, 1911–1916. Excavating below Ptolemaic, Late Period, Ramesside, and Hatshepsut’s valley temple remains  revealed a large Middle Kingdom court tomb, the focus of this report. According to finds and conditions, the tomb, Carnarvon 62, was cut ca. 2000 B.C. and used into Dynasty 13. Following a period of abandonment, it was then heavily reused from the late Second Intermediate Period into the joint reign of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, whereupon the site was sealed, ca 1470 B.C. Much of the material from the period of reuse was intact, and is of interest to scholars working in the Dynasty 17-early Dynasty 18 period, a formative period at Thebes. Both early and late architecture and finds introduce new philological and archaeological information. Specialists contribute essays and catalogues in their areas of expertise.
The digital format was chosen in order to provide modern descriptions, analyses, and images with archives for consultation. This format allows searchability, numerous photographs and plans, zoom capability, and the possibility of tying together material from two different concessions. Navigation of the app needs focus, however (note “Contents & Navigation Instructions”); it was built as a series of interrelated databases over many years and there is little HTML. However major texts and charts appear as PDFs for printing; there are numerous Harry Burton photographs and a great deal of other archival material; and there is also information about early exploration in Egypt. Content will not be updated; further formats are uncertain.

  Pilgerfahrt im spätantiken Nahen Osten (3./4. - 8. Jahrhundert)

Byzanz zwischen Orient und Okzident
Das Phänomen des spätantiken Pilgerwesens im Nahen Osten wird oft mit dem Entstehen der christlichen Pilgerfahrt gleichgesetzt. Das christliche Pilgerwesen war aber nur ein – wenn auch bedeutender – Teil der nahöstlichen Pilgertradition. Es konkurrierte mit den älteren Traditionen des jüdischen Pilgerwesens in Palästina und der paganen Pilgerfahrt im pharaonischen Ägypten auf der einen Seite und mit der gleichfalls insbesondere auf Jerusalem fokussierten frühislamischen Pilgerfahrt auf der anderen Seite. Diese verschiedenen Pilgertraditionen, die sich gleichzeitig an einem Ort (vor allem in Jerusalem, aber auch in zahlreichen kleineren Pilgerzentren) beobachten lassen, stehen im Zentrum dieser Untersuchung.

Open Access Journal: Roman Roads Research Association Newsletter

Roman Roads Research Association Newsletter

Ivan Margary’s “Roman Roads in Britain”, last published in 1973, represented a fairly comprehensive assessment of the nation’s Roman road network as it was understood at the time. Unfortunately, it has all too often been assumed that after Margary’s work our knowledge and understanding of the Roman road network was reasonably complete, an assumption that has led to a lack of serious study within professional archaeology (with the notable exception of roads in Wales), and a failure to acknowledge that we are probably only reasonably certain of about 40% of the network at best.

For the last forty years and more, the serious study of Roman roads has largely been left to a handful of disparate individuals and small amateur groups, with little or no co-ordination or cooperation between them. Neither has it helped that the subject has, on occasions, attracted individuals whose enthusiasm has been rather more evident than their objectivity. The RRRA was formed to bring those disparate individuals together, and to coordinate a nationwide programme of research ensuring a consistent and high quality approach.

Newly Open Access Journal: Classica Cracoviensia

Classica Cracoviensia
ISSN: 1505-8913
E-ISSN: 2391-6753
Classica Cracoviensia
“Classica Cracoviensia”, the annual devoted to the studies of Greek and Roman antiquity, was established in 1995 as the initiative of the Director of the Institute of Classical Philology of the Jagiellonian University, Professor Stanisław Stabryła. Since 1996, the function of the scientific editor has been held by Professor Jerzy Styka. From the very beginning “Classica Cracoviensia” has been planned as a forum for scientific cooperation between the Institute of Classical Philology of the Jagiellonian University and European university centres of studies on the classical Greek and Roman culture in its various forms – literature as well as politics, philosophy, religion, law, art and reception studies. Periodically organised conferences, research projects, guest lectures, together with new publishing series are a few examples of this cooperation. It has made a significant contribution to the development of the Greek and Roman antiquity studies; at the same time, it brings academics working in this area of study together. Through the presentation of research on various forms of the Greek and Roman culture, we are trying to reveal the processes which have shaped this culture and the complexity of cultural transformation which had been taking place within it, as well as accentuate its universal character and the inspirational role in the creation of modern Europe. The very broad formula of this periodical supports intercultural and interdisciplinary research, which allows for a multifaceted and in-depth presentation of cultural phenomena and teaches the respect for otherness. The versatility of research methods serves as an argument for defending the heritage of antiquity in the modern world.

Open Access Journal: Hermeneus

[First posted in AWOL 23 March 2015, updated (new URL) 24 November 2019]


Het NKV geeft vijf keer per jaar Hermeneus uit, een geïllustreerd, populair wetenschappelijk tijdschrift.

Het blad Hermeneus belicht alle aspecten van de klassieke beschaving: van Zeus tot Achilles, van Homerus tot Augustinus, van Socrates tot Plotinus, van Perikles tot Constantijn, van opgravingen tot musea. Maar ook: hoe de gewone Griek en Romein dacht, leefde en werkte. Ook bèta-onderwerpen, architectuur, economie, biologie, geneeskunde etc... komen aan de orde.

Tenminste één thema-nummer per jaar belicht diepgaand een speciaal onderwerp, bijvoorbeeld: de Griekse tragedie, komedie, Romeins België en Nederland, het antieke Rome, Ionië, invloed van de oudheid op latere perioden etc.

Tevens bevat Hermeneus actuele informatie over tentoonstellingen, lezingen en andere culturele activiteiten. Deze informatie vindt u in de rubriek Klassieke Agenda. Ook vindt u recensies over nieuwe boeken op het gebied van de klassieke oudheid.

Hermeneus kunt u lezen zonder kennis van Grieks en Latijn. Antieke teksten en begrippen worden altijd vertaald of toegelicht.

Alle artikelen van de jaargangen 1 - 78 (1928-2006) van Hermeneus zijn digitaal te raadplegen. Kijk op Hermeneus online. Bovendien worden op deze website af en toe artikelen uit recentere nummers van Hermeneus uitgelicht. Zo verscheen onlangs een interessant artikel over het Pantheon, geschreven door Sjef Kemper (Hermeneus 88-1, 2016), online

The Archaeobotanical Literature Database ArchbotLit

The Archaeobotanical Literature Database ArchbotLit
Our knowledge about the (pre-) history of crop plants to the most part is based on the materiality of fossil and subfossil plant remains from archaeological excavations. Data is gained in research projects in the fields of palaeo-ethnobotany and archaeobotany. Literature on past crop plants is scattered in a variety of international journals, excavations reports, but as well as grey literature and thus often difficult to access.

The literature based crop plant database offers a platform for archaeobotanists, archaeologists, students and the interested public to search for literature on specific crop species, their occurrence in specific archaeological periods or regions with the option for multiple category search functions.
For the informed archaeobotany community it further provides the opportunity to increase the visibility and accessibility of own publications. There is no raw data direct way available, but secondary information on archaeobotanical evidence for crop species according to
  • Species
  • Archaeological period / dating
  • Country
  • Site
  • References
Reference list for crop plants
The taxalist for the ArchbotLit is based upon the catalogue Mansfeld’s World Database of Agricultural and Horticultural Crops where further synonyms can be found as well.

                              Chronological Lists of Oriental Institute Publications


                              Chronological Lists of Oriental Institute Publications

                              Between 1997 and 2011, the Oriental Institute maintained a list, by year, of its publications. This offered a useful chronological overview of the publication activity. I have now compiled lists for 2012-2019 and include links to the 1997-2011 lists below.

                              Open Access Monograph Series: Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum

                              Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum
                              Founded in 1945, with its first volume published in 1960, the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum has attracted the support and participation of an international team of scholars interested in classical tradition during the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
                              Each article treats a separate classical author, beginning with a detailed essay on the author’s reception from antiquity to 1600. This Fortuna is followed by a comprehensive list both of printed and manuscript commentaries in Latin on the author and, in the case of Greek authors, a list of Latin translations as well.
                              This site provides Open Access to previously published volumes of the Catalogus Translationum et Commentariorum; beginning with Volume X, printed volumes of the CTC will be published by the Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies.
