New Open Access Journal: History of Classical Scholarship (HCS)

History of Classical Scholarship (HCS)
HCS logo
History of Classical Scholarship (HCS) is a new academic journal that sets out to be the first periodical exclusively devoted to the history of the studies on the Greek and Roman world, in a broad and interdisciplinary sense. We welcome contributions on any aspects of the history of classical studies, in any geographical context, from the Middle Ages to the late twentieth century, and are keen to host papers covering the whole range of the discipline: from ancient history to literary studies, from epigraphy and numismatics to art history and archaeology, from textual criticism to religious and linguistic studies. We also welcome the publication of significant items from the Nachlässe of classical scholars, including letters that may shed light on matters of historical or historiographical interest.
HCS is fully open-access: it is freely available on the web, and each paper is paginated and downloadable in PDF format. It has a strong international dimension, like the subject matter that it aims to explore, and features articles written in English, French, German, Italian or Spanish.
Each submission will undergo a double-blind peer-review process. The aim is to upload an accepted paper on the journal’s website as soon as it is ready to appear. We are not setting prescriptive deadlines for the submission of contributions to each individual issue. There is no binding word limit for contributions and we do not impose a single house style.

The present project was developed in the context of the long-term project “Digitalization of the DFG (German Research Society) special subject fields”. It concentrates on the digitalization of literature not in public domain, predominantly in the field of humanities and social sciences with an emphasis on monographs.
In the first phase of the project, approx. 4700 titles of programme segments of the publishers Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht, Wilhelm Fink / Ferdinand Schöningh as well as Otto Sagner were digitized. In a second phase, further approx. 1750 titles are being included till 2014 by consecutively digitizing all monographs up to a defined ‘Moving Wall’ of three to five years to the current year of publication.
Corresponding arrangements with publishing houses, who act in agreement with their authors, enable the BSB to digitize works protected by copyright and to provide accessibility according to the guidelines of the DFG via Open Access.
The Website provides a full-text search of the entire collection or of the single subject collections. All titles are also accessible with the OPAC of the Bavarian State Library. The inclusion in professionally relevant virtual subject libraries is in preparation.

Exemplum regulam praecedit– show them, don’t just tell them!
Our pedagogical philosophy is that people learn language best when they see real-life uses in context, not merely abstractions. That is why instances of Latin instruction are drawn from actual authors and texts, not manufactured exempla (with the exception of Fabule Faciles).

The Vergil project

[First posted in AWOL 10 August 2012, updated 28 December 2019]

The Vergil project: Resources for Students, Teachers, and Readers of Vergil
The Vergil Project is a resource for students, teachers, and readers of Vergil's Aeneid. It offers an on-line hypertext linked to interpretive materials of various kinds. These include basic information about grammar, syntax, and diction; several commentaries; an apparatus criticus; help with scansion; and other resources.

The text

The display text that appears on the left side of the screen is that of the old OCT by Hirtzel (1900), with modifications. Each word is linked to a variety of resources that can be selected from the sidebar. The text initially displayed is always the first twenty-five lines of the poem. The user can then navigate to another book and line number by using the two slider bars that appear at the top of the screen, above the text and resources.

The sidebar

The right side of the screen contains a sidebar that is divided into four sections. By default each of these sections is visible, but each can be hidden or reopened at the user's discretion by clicking on the icon ( or ) in the top left corner of each box.
  1. The Options section allows the user to customize the display. Choices include:
    • Displaythe text in units of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, or 1,000 lines.
    • Select from among the different kinds of resources. As a whole, these are available in three forms:
      • In-line textual aids are included within the text of the poem and are displayed in one of three ways:
        1. Modern punctuation is simply inserted into the primary text.
        2. Textual variantsappear as asterisks next to any word for which a variant reading (whether attested or conjectural) exists. Each different reading appears as a separate asterisk. Passing the cursor over these asterisks displays the alternate reading along with the sources that attest or endorse it.
        3. Natural vowel quantities replaces the original text with one that marks long and short vowel quantities. The individual words remain linked to other resources.
      • Mouse hover textual aid appears when the cursor is rolled over a particular word in the text
      • Sidebar resources are available in several areas that are arranged to the right of the text.
      Some resources are available in more than one of these forms so that users can consult them in the form that they find most convenient. Resources that involve displaying large amounts of text are generally available only as sidebar resources.
  2. The Reading assistance section contains basic information about grammar, syntax, and diction in the form of an approximate English equivalent for each word in context.
  3. The Concordance section lists every other occurrence of the same word in the poem, including all grammatical forms.
  4. The Resources for selected text gives access to several commentaries and translations of the Aeneid and to a full list of textual variants. < /li>

Release notes

Version 2.0

This is the first major upgrade to The Vergil Project since its original release. The most obvious feature of this release is the redesign of the user interface. New content features include additional analysis of gramamr and syntax, textual variants, natural vowel quantities, a more complete concordance function, the Servius commentary, and the translations of John Dryden (1697, a classic and somewhat free poetic rendering) and Theodore C. Williams (1910, also poetic but in a more modern idiom). These texts were digitized by The Perseus Digital Library. The textual variants listed here are based on the apparatus critici of the editions of R. A. B. Mynors' (the current OCT, 1969) and Mario Geymonat (Corpus Paravianum 1973). The new grammatical analysis is based on that of M. N. Wetmore's Index Verborum Vergilianus (1911), against which the older analysis has been checked.

Version 1.0

After some initial experimentation and proof of concept beginning in 1995, The Vergil Project was created by a group of secondary school, college, and university teachers and graduate students in a pair of sumer workshops held at the University of Pennsylvania in 1999 and 2000. During that time the text of Aeneid 1, 2, 4, 6, and other of the most commonly studied parts of the poem were analyzed grammaticaly and syntactically. In addition, these parts of the poem were provided with a basic glossary and with the elements of an original commentary and other resources.

Mycenaean Atlas Project
The purpose of this web site is to provide accurate latitude and longitude coordinates for all the Early, Middle, and Late Helladic (Mycenaean) find sites both in Greece and in places which the Mycenaean culture touched. This site also provides some bibliographic information as well as times of occupation and the nature of the finds at the various sites. The main purpose is, however, to provide locational information.

Locational Data: Accuracy

Every effort has been made to confirm the exact location of each site. For a complete description of this parameter and of the concepts of Precision and Accuracy as they apply to this web site see this.

Alphabetical List of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies

[The version history of this list is at: Updates on the list of Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies]

This list includes 1837titles

Have you found a broken link in this list?  Let me know via the comments.
This is a List of all Open Access Journals in Ancient Studies known  to me. It includes digitized paper-based journals from their 18th century origins to the present day. It also includes born-digital open access journals. I am in the process of compiling a list of currently active (i.e. seeking contributions) open access journals as a guide for scholars seeking opportunities to publish openly. When that list is ready for launch, I will post the link here.

                            Roundup of Resources on Ancient Geography

                            [Most recently updated 3 December 2019]

                            Included in the following list are links to digital project dealing with geography and the ancient world. It is an eclectic list, culled mostly from entries in AWOL. It has no pretentions of being complete or comprehensive, but is offered to give readers a sense of the range of materials currently accessible. I have (for the most part) not included the scores of atlases, maps and other orginally paper-based geographical resources which are accessible online in facsimile.

                            I welcome comments, suggestions for sites to include, notices of projects under development, and any other sorts of reactions you may have.  Please use the comment function below, or email me directly.  I'm easy to find.

                            2300 Ancient Sites on Google Earth 
                            On several occasions I have blogged on the possibilities of Google Earth and its online spin-off, Google Maps. My last blog on this topic was a bit over half a year ago, when I had some 1700 items available. In the meantime, I have added more than 550 ancient sites to my list, from all quarters of the ancient world.
                            AdriAtlas: Atlas informatisé de l'Adriatique antique (1100 a.C. - 751 p.C.)
                            Cet Atlas, lié à une base de données constamment enrichie, a pour but de fournir un état de la recherche sur l'Adriatique antique entre le XIe s. av. J.-C. et le milieu du VIIIe s. ap. J.-C. C'est une réalisation du programme international AdriAtlas financé par l'Agence Nationale de la Recherche (partenaires : Ausonius-Bordeaux, Ecole française de Rome, M²ISA-Paris), la Région Aquitaine et l'Ecole française de Rome. Jusqu'à présent, seule l'Adriatique orientale a été couverte, avec la collaboration des Instituts d'archéologie de Ljubljana (Slovénie) et de Tirana (Albanie), les Universités de Trieste (Italie), Pula, Zadar et Zagreb (Croatie), de l'université catholique de Croatie et des chercheurs des universités de Bordeaux, Clermont-Ferrand et Grenoble. Actuellement les sites de l’Adriatique occidentale connus par les sources écrites sont progressivement ajoutés par les équipes universitaires de Bari, Bologne, Chieti, Ferrare, Foggia, Lecce, Macerata, Padoue, Trieste et Vérone. 
                            Amphores. Recueil de timbres sur amphores romaines (RATAR)
                            Depuis quelques décennies, les amphores ont pris la première place comme source de l'étude des échanges dans l'Antiquité. Les inscriptions qu'elles portent fondent la connaissance de l'organisation de leur production, de leurs contenus et de leur distribution. Depuis de nombreuses années, une petite équipe du Centre Camille Jullian, Université de Provence – CNRS, étudie les timbres sur amphores romaines et a constitué une base de données, informatisée depuis 1987, à partir de publications. Le lecteur peut se reporter aux introductions des deux volumes RTAR I et II cités ci-dessous où les principes suivis pour la constitution de la base de données sont exposés.
                            Anatolian Atlas
                            The Anatolian Atlas is a resource for scholars interested in the archaeological settlement patterning and historical geography of Ancient Anatolia (modern day Turkey).      
                            Here you will find Google Maps that display the extents of various archaeological surveys that have been conducted in Anatolia as well as numerous archaeological sites. These sites, when possible, are linked to online content that provides more information. They also often have citations for scholarly work that has discussed them. The works that are cited can be found in the bibliography.

                            Finally, the Anatolian Atlas also hosts original research that has been developed in CAMEL by scholars of the Oriental Institute.
                            The Anatolian Roads Project
                            This site is dedicated to research in the field of the Roman road system located in ancient Anatolia, present-day Turkey. The site is sponsored by the History department of Wisconsin Lutheran College under the direction of Dr. Glen L. Thompson and by the Asia Minor Research Center under the direction of Dr. Mark Wilson. The Anatolian Roads Project (TARP) is a work in progress and thus will be updated and improved as time goes on.
                            Ancient Mediterranean Ports
                            The Union of Ancient Mediterranean Ports was created in 1995 from a network of cities with the common characteristic of having been founded during Greek antiquity. The union was enacted in 1996 with its headquarters in the ancient town of Agatha, current Aged of Southern France...
                            Ancient Locations:Database of Archaeological Sites
                            ANCIENT LOCATIONS is my collection of Placemarks of archaeologically interesting locations of the ancient world.
                            The list is continuously updated and expanded to give anyone with an interest in archaeology and history the possibility to look up the coordinates of relevant sites.
                            Locations are included if they existed prior to 476 CE in the Old World (end of the West-Roman Empire) and prior to 1492 CE in the New World (re-discovery of the New World).

                            Ancient Ports – Ports Antiques

                            Le Projet d’inventaire des Ports Antiques

                            This web site presents work done to collect, identify and locate ancient harbours and ports. It is based on a study of existing documentation and does not aim at finding new ports that were unknown at the time of writing. The result is a list of around 2750 ancient ports based on 66 ancient authors and a few modern authors. 
                            Ancient World Mapping Center
                            Recently the Center has been able to acquire its own server, so this is the ideal opportunity to revise and upgrade the website now launched here. The new site provides a robust platform to host the Center’s activities, especially its online initiatives Antiquity À-la-carte and the newly conceived Benthos project. Please explore and enjoy. You are encouraged to join the AWMC community and participate by registering yourself as a user of the site. The Center can only function with much valued support from donors. If you too would like to make a contribution, please visit the Support AWMC page.
                            ANE Placemarks for Google Earth
                            From Olof Pedersén
                            A preliminary set of placemarks (ANE.kmz) for Google Earth of a selection of the most important archaeological sites in the Ancient Near East can be downloaded here (as an alternative try right-click or ctrl-click).
                            Antiquity À-la-carte
                            The Antiquity À-la-carte application is an interactive digital map of the ancient world.
                            APAAME: Aerial Photography Archive for Archaeology in the Middle East
                            APAAME is long-term research project directed by Professor David Kennedy and Dr Robert Bewley, and is based at the University of Western Australia. The project is designed both to develop a methodology suited to the region and to illuminate settlement history in the Near East. The archive currently consists of almost 45,000 aerial images, over 40,000 of which are displayed on the archive’s Flickr site.

                            Although principally focused on Jordan, in which there has been an annual programme of flying since 1997 (The Aerial Archaeology in Jordan Project), high resolution satellite imagery on Google Earth is now permitting research on neighbouring countries.

                            We will be keeping you up to date on what we are finding, how we are finding it, and also taking you with us on our fieldwork in Jordan.
                            Le site de l'archéogéographie est une réalisation du Groupe de Recherches du CNRS intitulé "Traité de l'ESpace des Sociétés Rurales Anciennes" (= GDR 2137, TESORA). Ce groupe, dont l'existence institutionnelle prend fin en 2007 après 8 années d'existence, a conçu et formalisé une discipline nouvelle nommée archéogéographie et rédigé le Traité d'archéogéographie qui lui sert de base (en cours de parution). 

                            L'archéogéographie est enseignée à l'Université de Paris-I Sorbonne dans le cadre d'un Master “archéologie et environnement”, dont elle constitue une des quatre options. Les cours d'archéogéographie sont donnés par Gérard Chouquer, Magali Wateaux, Sandrine Robert. La direction de thèses sur des thèmes d'archéogéographie est assurée par Gérard Chouquer dans le cadre d'un Doctorat d'archéologie de l’École Doctorale d’Archéologie de l’Université de Paris I (ED 112). Certaines thèses sont encadrées en co-direction avec Joëlle Burnouf.

                            À partir de l'année universitaire 2007-2008, l'archéogéographie est enseignée à Coimbra, dans le cadre d'un Master "Archéologie et territoires", Spécialisation Archéogéographie, et, à partir de 2008/2009 dans le cadre d'un Doctorat d'archéogéographie. L'encadrement des thèses du doctorat d'archéogéographie sera assurée par Maria da Conceição Lopes.
                            Le responsable du site internet de l'archéogéographie est Gérard Chouquer, directeur de recherches au CNRS dans l'équipe Arscan ("Archéologie et Sciences de l'Antiquité" UMR 7041 du CNRS) et la sous-équipe "Archéologies environnementales" que dirige Joëlle Burnouf.
                            Archaeological Atlas of Coptic Literature
                            An exhaustive digital Archaeological Atlas of Coptic Literature provides a new comprehensive perspective on the spread and development of Coptic literature and manuscript culture. This versatile tool allows detailed and focused research and correlation of chronological, regional and thematic data. It also illustrates the relationship between settlements uncovered by the archaeological and topographical investigations and intellectual activity revealed in manuscripts.
                            Archaeological Survey of Israel - English - Hebrew
                            The sites documented in the Archaeological Survey of Israel are published on the website where they are displayed in survey squares of 100 sq km (10 × 10 km). The list of maps is presented below in alphabetic order, according to their names and numbers as recorded in Yalquṭ Ha-Pirsumim. The survey maps can be seen on the right side of the screen against the background of an aerial photograph. The sites (marked with yellow dots) can be accessed by zooming in on the screen and a description of them will appear by clicking on the dots. The introduction to each map and search options are also displayed.
                            ArchAtlas is a web-orientated archaeological mapping and research project, founded by the late Prof. Andrew Sherratt, which continues to be developed at the Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield, UK.
                            Археологическая карта Крыма 
                            Археологические экспедиции, регулярно работающие в Крыму.
                            История Крыма открывается нам во многом благодаря археологическим раскопкам. В приводимом ниже списке и на карте указаны экспедиции, в течение многих лет проводящие археологические исследования в Крыму на ряде крупных памятников. В некоторые из экспедиций можно поехать волонтером. Волонтерам, как правило, приходится оплачивать свое пребывание. Более подробную информацию Вы можете найти на сайтах экспедиций, если таковые есть и функционируют, либо, установив контакты с прошлыми участниками или руководством. Многие, побывавшие в экспедициях, и дальше именно так предпочитают проводить отдых в Крыму и история Крыма, открываемая археологией, становится частью их жизни. Подчеркну, что экспедиций, конечно, гораздо больше, но многие носят кратковременный характер, и часто их задачей являются раскопки отдельного объекта. В этом случае, как правило, экспедиции немногочисленны, раскопки выполняются профессиональными археологами с привлечение небольшого числа опытных рабочих.
                            ARMEP: Ancient Records of Middle Eastern Polities
                            ARMEP 1.0’s interactive map interface displays the find spots of about 6,700 ancient texts, all of which were written in the Akkadian and Sumerian languages and in cuneiform script. Most of these inscribed artifacts were discovered in modern-day Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, while others originate from Egypt, Iran, Lebanon, and Saudi Arabia. Although the texts range in date from ca. 2334 to 64 BC, most come from Neo-Assyrian times (744-612 BC). The dataset is derived from the Open Richly Annotated Cuneiform Corpus (Oracc) and it includes texts from the following projects: Inscriptions of Suhu online (Suhu; LMU Munich); Royal Inscriptions of Assyria online (RIAo; LMU Munich); Royal Inscriptions of Babylonia online (RIBo; LMU Munich) Royal Inscriptions of the Neo-Assyrian Period (RINAP; UPenn and LMU Munich); and State Archives of Assyria online (SAA; formerly UCL, now LMU Munich).
                            Assyrian empire builders links to a set of useful External Resources. Among these is:

                            Atlas archéologique de l’Égypte 
                            L’Atlas archéologique de l’Égypte, de Georges Daressy, fait probablement partie des trésors du cabinet d’égyptologie du Collège de France. Arrivé en Égypte en 1886, conservateur au musée de Boulaq, secrétaire général et directeur par intérim du service des Antiquités de l’Égypte, Georges Daressy a, en effet, au fil des ans, patiemment noté sur son Atlas, toutes les découvertes archéologiques dont il avait connaissance. Ayant participé à de multiples campagnes de fouilles et ayant accompli de nombreuses découvertes (dont celles du palais d’Amenhotep III et de la seconde cachette royale de Deir el-Bahari), travailleur infatiguable, il avait une profonde connaissance du terrain. Son Atlas est, en outre, une véritable œuvre d’art à laquelle rendent justices les « fac-similés » de cette publication que nous avons le plaisir d’offrir au public. Les cartes d’état-major, les index (en français-anglais et en arabe) et la bibliographie complètent l’appareil critique.

                            Atlas des Sites du PRoche-Orient (ASPRO)
                            L’ Atlas des Sites du Proche-Orient (ASPRO) se présente comme un répertoire analytique de près de 2 000 sites occupés entre 14 000 et 5 700 BP (environ 14 000 - 4 500 av. J.-C.) sur un territoire qui s’étend du Sinaï au Turkménistan et de l’Anatolie au golfe Arabo-Persique.

                            Atlas PALM: Atlas du Patrimoine Archéologique Littorale Méditerranéen

                            Le projet

                            Né de la volonté de mettre à disposition de tous une part méconnue du patrimoine culturel, l’Atlas PALM propose de mettre en ligne et en lumière 60 années de découvertes et de recherches archéologiques sous-marines sur les côtes de la région Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur.

                            Si la pratique de l'archéologie sous-marine est relativement récente, l'exploration des fonds méditerranéens français a néanmoins généré au cours des soixante dernières années une documentation riche, abondante et variée. La diversité de ce patrimoine archéologique illustre, sur plusieurs millénaires, l'histoire des régions littorales françaises et leur rôle d'interface entre monde méditerranéen et continent européen. A l'inverse du patrimoine terrestre, ces vestiges, pourtant témoins et acteurs de l'identité méditerranéenne, sont souvent invisibles ou inaccessibles, immergés, fragiles, en proie aux pillages et aux destructions.

                            The Archaeological Sites of the Aegean Minoans
                            The Aegean Minoan 3D GIS Project was initiated in 2007 to produce a three-dimensional (3D) full-color mapping of the archaeological sites of the Minoans in the Aegean Sea area using Google Earth. It is intended to be a definitive geographical reference available to everyone. While this is an ongoing project and we are always looking to improve it, thanks to the many contributing scholars and volunteers it is by far the most comprehensive and accurate mapping of its kind ever made and includes the sites and geographical features listed below.
                            Benthos: Digital Atlas of Ancient Waters beta version
                            Benthos is a new initiative of the Ancient World Mapping Center that aims to catalog and map the waters of the ancient Mediterranean basin, including both physical and cultural geography. The project will provide interactive maps of Mediterranean shipping networks, bathymetric data, and views of ancient coastlines. Currently the project is in a preliminary state, with a functional beta version of the application based off of Antiquity À-la-carte.

                            The Big Ancient Mediterranean
                            BAM was developed at the University of Iowa by Paul Dilley (University of Iowa), Sarah E. Bond (University of Iowa), and Ryan Horne (UNC-Chapel Hill). The open-access project integrates GIS tools, network analysis, and textual annotation/data mining capabilities in order to allow the exploration and visualization of ancient texts in new ways. The first individual module within Big Ancient Mediterranean is called Terra Biblica. Terra Biblica is a tool for the geospatial analysis, literary network visualization, and plot mapping of biblical and related texts up to the year 337 CE. BAM also houses the Iowa Canon of Latin Authors. The Iowa Canon of Latin Authors and Works is a catalogue and information repository for all extant Latin authors and their writings, including fragmentary texts, as well as translations into Latin, from the earliest period through the seventh century CE.

                            Malgré la diversité des projets d'inventaire dès la fin du XIX ème siècle, il n'y a pas encore un inventaire général et exhaustif des sites archéologiques, des monuments historiques et du patrimoine vernaculaire.
                            4. Contenu
                            La carte nationale des sites archéologiques et des monuments historiques a vu ses objectifs clairement précisés par le décret n°1443-1992 daté du 3 août 1992 :
                            Article premier.– Il est institué une carte nationale des sites archéologiques et des monuments historiques en terre et en mer dans le but d’établir l’inventaire général des lieux et édifices qui constituent une partie du patrimoine culturel national.
                            Article 2.– Pour le recensement des sites et des monuments, il sera procédé à l’établissement et à l’impression des documents suivants :
                            - carte au 1/50 000e comportant la localisation des sites
                            - plan au 1/2000 comportant la localisation des monuments et des tissus urbains traditionnels.
                            - fichier comportant une description des sites et des monuments, une évaluation des superficies, une couverture photographique et, dans la mesure du possible, une enquête foncière préliminaire. »

                            We are happy about your interest at CHARDA-Xplore. In the following you will get some short information about the project.

                            The Chinese Archaeology Database (CHARDA-Xplore) began as part of the research project 'Chinese Metal' (CHIME), located in the research-cluster 2 of the DAI, and was originally designed to collect and document the available information on early Chinese metal finds.

                            CHARDA-Xplore basically serves as a collection of standardized and geo-referenced archaeological information, providing the possibility to analyze these data statistically and to map spatial and temporal distribution patterns.

                            Since 1988 a research team from the Mediterranean Section of the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania has been involved in making a computerized architectural and topographical survey of the Roman colony of Corinth. Known as the Corinth Computer Project, the fieldwork has been carried out under the auspices of the Corinth Excavations of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens, Dr. Charles K. Williams II, Director. 
                            Corona Atlas & Referencing System
                            CORONA is the codename for the United States’ first photographic spy satellite mission, in operation from 1960-1972. During that time, CORONA satellites took high-resolution images of most of the earth’s surface, with particular emphasis on Soviet bloc countries and other political hotspots in order to monitor military sites and produce maps for the Department of Defense. The more than 800,000 images collected by the CORONA missions remained classified until 1995 when an executive order by President Bill Clinton made them publicly available through the US Geological Survey. Because CORONA images preserve a high-resolution picture of the world as it existed in the 1960s, they constitute a unique resource for researchers and scientists studying environmental change, agriculture, geomorphology, archaeology and other fields.
                            Cuneiform Site Index (CSI): A gazetteer of findspots for cuneiform texts in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East
                            Rune Rattenborg
                            This index contains primary spatial, toponym, attribute, and external link information on approximately two hundred and fifty locations across the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East where texts written in cuneiform and derived scripts have been found. The index has been prepared by Rune Rattenborg as part of Memories For Life: Materiality and Memory of Ancient Near Eastern Inscribed Private Objects a research project based at Uppsala University and the University of Cambridge financed by a Research Project Grant from the Swedish Research Council (grant no. 2016-02028). The intention is to continuously update this index to provide an easy digital geographical reference for Assyriologists, Near Eastern Archaeologists, and other researchers with an interest in the cuneiform script. New download versions will appear regularly. Time permitting, we will aim to expand the index to contain also basic periodisation and bibliographical information for easy reference, along with quantitative data.
                            The current version of the index is stored with the University of Uppsala Department of Linguistics and Philology, hosted by Jakob Andersson and is available for download through links here. The index is supplied in .kml (suitable for use with GIS applications and Google Earth), .csv (for database integration) and .geojson (for GIS and web mapping applications).

                            L'immagine che gli studiosi hanno di Roma è quella del luogo, per eccellenza, depositario di valori artistico-architettonici di primaria importanza, meta di ogni viaggio (reale o intellettuale) che a quei valori voglia attingere. Paradossalmente la conoscenza della città è resa problematica proprio in ragione della straordinaria estensione del suo patrimonio e della altrettanto vasta - e non coordinata - diffusione delle relative fonti documentarie.
                            Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization (DARMC)

                            The Digital Atlas of Roman and Medieval Civilization(DARMC) makes freely available on the internet the best available materials for a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) approach to mapping and spatial analysis of the Roman and medieval worlds. DARMC allows innovative spatial and temporal analyses of all aspects of the civilizations of western Eurasia in the first 1500 years of our era, as well as the generation of original maps illustrating differing aspects of ancient and medieval civilization. A work in progress with no claim to definitiveness, it has been built in less than three years by a dedicated team of Harvard undergraduates, graduate students, research scholars and one professor, with some valuable contributions from younger and more senior scholars at other institutions.

                            The Digital Archaeological Atlas of the Holy Land (DAAHL) is an international project that brings together experts in information technology including Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and the archaeology of the Holy Land (modern Israel, Palestine, Jordan, southern Lebanon, Syria and the Sinai Peninsula) to create the first on-line digital atlas of the region held sacred to the three great monotheistic faiths - Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Using the power of spatial information systems such as Google Maps and Google Earth, GIS, the tens of thousands of recorded archaeological sites for the region - from the remote prehistoric periods to the early 20th century - will be entered into a comprehensive database along with site maps, photographs and artifacts. The historical and archaeological content for this project will be developed by a team of over 30 international scholars working in the region, helping to provide the data used to create the Atlas. This website and its content will serve as the prototype "knowledge node" of a more comprehensive Digital Archaeological Atlas Network for the Mediterranean region.

                            Digital Augustan Rome is a long term mapping project that is prepared to provide a worthy digital successor to the published book and maps of Mapping Augustan Rome that appeared as Supplement 50 in the Journal of Roman Archaeology Series, 2002. The volume was directed by Lothar Haselberger in collaboration with David Gilman Romano and edited by Elisha Dumser. The entries were written by over 12 authors.  
                            The Digital Gazetteer of the Song Dynasty
                            A digital history project at the University of California, Merced
                            In 1958, Sinologist Hope Wright published a work entitled An Alphabetical List of Geographical Names in Sung China. Originally published in Paris by the Centre de Recherches Historiques of the École Pratique des Hautes Études, and reprinted as a second-generation photocopy in 1992 by the Journal of Song-Yuan Studies, the Alphabetical List is now out of print.

                            Wright’s compilation is the most comprehensive print source for Song geography in any language. The Digital Gazetteer of Song Dynasty China (DGSD) is a MySQL database derived primarily from the Alphabetical List.

                            Digital Maps of the Ancient World: Mapping the Ancient World little by little…
                            The aim of this platform is to map out the Ancient World in as many aspects as possible. This website and subsequent content came about from my wife, parents and a few of my pupils asking to have access to the maps, which had been created to use as part of my Classics syllabus.
                            The maps are an ongoing process and so are not complete but I do hope that you will find them useful; for the classroom, personal interest or just to double check a specific place or site.

                             FastiOnline: A database of archaeological excavations since the year 2000
                            Between 1946 and 1987 the International Association for Classical Archaeology (AIAC) published the Fasti Archaeologici. It contained very useful summary notices of excavations throughout the area of the Roman Empire. However, spiraling costs and publication delays combined to render it less and less useful. AIACs board of directors thus decided in 1998 to discontinue the publication and to seek a new way of recording and diffusing new results. The Fasti Online is the result of this effort.

                            The GIS Center was founded to improve SCA's ability to protect and manage archaeological sites. This goal was achieved by creating a system for identification of the location and characteristics of archaeological sites and to record them in a searchable GIS and database. The information is then transferred to targeted stakeholders, which enables them to take the existence and significance of these sites into consideration in all conservation, land management and planning, and related socio-economic activities...
                             GIS in Archaeology: The Complete Guide

                            Introduction to Geographic Information Systems

                            Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are tools for the input, analysis and output of spatial data. Geographers initially used these tools for resource management purposes (Burrough 1986). Over the last decade, GIS applications have revolutionized many disciplines in many ways (Marble, 1990), though some disciplines adopted them earlier than others. In the field of archeology, GIS has barely reached the end of the experimental stage. Although it was used fairly regularly in the early 1980?s, (Kvamme, 1996) its present utilization has dramatically increased. At the time this paper was written, over 500 archaeologists worldwide were registered GIS users with the online database "GIS-using archaeologists", developed byPaul Miller and Ian Johnson in 1995. It is suspected that the actual number of GIS users in the archaeology circle is substantially higher.
                            GlobalXplorer° is an online platform that uses the power of the crowd to analyze the incredible wealth of satellite images currently available to archaeologists. Launched by 2016 TED Prize winner and National Geographic Fellow, Dr. Sarah Parcak, as her “wish for the world,” GlobalXplorer° aims to bring the wonder of archaeological discovery to all, and to help us better understand our connection to the past. So far, Dr. Parcak’s techniques have helped locate 17 potential pyramids, in addition to 3,100 potential forgotten settlements and 1,000 potential lost tombs in Egypt — and she's also made significant discoveries in the Viking world and Roman Empire. With the help of citizen scientists across the globe, she hopes to uncover much, much more. This is just the beginning. With additional funding, Dr. Parcak aims to revolutionize how modern archaeology is done altogether, by creating a global network of citizen explorers, opening field schools to guide archaeological preservation on the ground, developing an archaeological institute, and even launching a satellite designed with archaeology in mind.
                            Google Ancient Places
                            The Web is seeing an explosion of digitized material being made freely and openly available online. Google Books alone has some 12 million books in over 300 languages; but other collections, such as the Open Library and the Hathi Trust, are also making accessible texts, many of which were previously available only in prestigious university libraries. But the challenge is: What’s there? And how can it be used?

                            With funding from Google’s Digital Humanities Research Awards, the Google Ancient Places (GAP) project addresses these two primary concerns of discovery and usability using ancient world places as the target information that we want to able to find and visualize. We call this automated process the ‘there and back again’ principle: it’s not enough to empower users to discover ancient places in large text corpora; we also allow users to move back again to find the books that refer to them.
                            Heritage Gazetteer of Cyprus
                            Welcome to the Heritage Gazetteer for Cyprus (HGC). Cyprus has played an important role in the history of many cultures. It has been described in many languages and several different alphabets, over several millennia. This can make identification of places difficult; and it means that interesting historical information may be dispersed, and hard to access.

                            The overall aim of this project, therefore, is to facilitate the use of a wide range of expertise in recording the historic geography of Cyprus; the resource has been designed to record all locations/monuments attested as in use in any period up to 1882, and all names used for these locations on the island, in any language or period up to the establishment of standard reference systems. Modern administrative districts are named according to the Οδηγός Τυποποίησης Ονομάτων (Nicosia, 2007, available online). Modern toponyms are given in the form used in the Complete Gazetteer of Cyprus (Nicosia, 1987, pp 1-1301 available online: see also the list of Towns and Villages of Cyprus, pp. 1303-1669).
                            Heritage Gazetteer of Libya
                            The Heritage Gazetteer of Libya is designed to provide a tool for exploring the rich historic heritage of Libya, based on the work of members of the Society for Libyan Studies. The core data are drawn from the publications of the Society, including two guidebooks to Tripolitania (2009) and Cyrenaica (2013) by Philip Kenrick; further information is being added from the Archives of the Society, and from other publications by members.

Using a freely available digital text of Herodotus from the Perseus on-line library, Hestia captures all place-names mentioned in the narrative, organises that information in a database, and then explores those spatial relations through a series of mapping applications, such as GIS, GoogleEarth and the Narrative TimeMap. Our work both challenges the usual division between East and West by bringing to light the deep network culture that underpins the Histories, and finds ways of bringing Herodotus's world into people's homes. 
                            Hierokles: Synekdemos
                            Ryan Horne

                            Application Information

                            Early in the reign of Justinian, an otherwise unidentified author named Hierokles composed the Synekdemos, a sprawling list of the provinces and major cities of the Eastern Roman Empire. Containing nearly a thousand toponyms, the Synekdemos is an unparalleled source on the geography of the Byzantine world. It not only indicates the administrative divisions of Justinian’s time, but also suggests what places, in the view of one educated Roman, “mattered” in the early 6th century CE.
                            Hittite Historical Atlas
                            Since 1906, the excavations at the Hittite capital Boğazköy/Hattusa have yielded thousands of cuneiform tablets and fragments, most of which was published. Nevertheless, there are centres other than Hattusa, which produced tablets. These include Maşat Höyük/Tapigga Kuşaklı/Sarisa Ortaköy/Sapinuwa, Oymaağaç/Nerik and Kayalıpınar/Samuha. The texts from the Hittite centres mention over 4000 geographical names (regions, mountains, rivers, cities), which suggest that the Hittites had a considerable knowledge of their surroundings and geographical terms.
                            Hittite Monuments

                            Hittite Monuments is an experimental site, built with an aim to provide visual references to all major Hittite monuments. The locations listed below are the sites that has monuments belonging to the times of Hittite/Luwian civilization and culture. The text list below divides the sites in two chronological groups. This is definetely not a complete list, nor the listed sites may have complete information. Some pages are still missing information or images. As time permits I continue to update the pages with more information. I would appreciate any comments, feedback, and information. -Tayfun Bilgin
                            Holy Land Maps from the Eran Laor Cartographic Collection
                            The Holy Land has been the subject of a relatively large number of maps, chiefly due to its religious importance. Some of the earliest maps reflected ancient traditions of mapping such as that of Ptolemy; others were meant to illustrate the Holy Scriptures. Some maps were printed separately; while others were published as part of atlases, itineraries and travel books. Owners who could afford the expense added coloring to their maps.

                            Introducing Itiner-e. The Gazetteer of Roads
                            Greetings from Barcelona. Our team composed of Pau de Soto, Tom Brughmans, Josep Guitart and Santiago Muxach very proud to write the first introductory blogpost about our project: the first gazetteer of historical roads, integrated in the Pelagios Commons Universe.
                            Firstly, we want to thank Pelagios Commons for awarding us with one of the Resource Development Grants 2018.  This offers us the perfect opportunity to develop our ideas about new ways of connecting data and projects by focusing on historical Roads. So…
                            Kima Historical Gazetteer: Place Names in the Hebrew Script
                            The Pelagios Resource Development Grant of the first round has enabled us to launch the project Kima, a Hebrew script, attestation-based historical gazetteer. The resulting resource was a promising database, which was, however, still unbalanced and required more work in order to make it usable as an encompassing, multipurpose gazetteer. We were thrilled, then, to hear that our application for the second round was successful.

                            The identification of ancient places with modern sites is not always certain. We have followed the certainty codes 1-4 in Parpola and Porter, Helsinki atlas (2001), and coloured the pins in the Google Earth (KMZ) files accordingly:
                            1. Yellow: definitely known location (no "probably/perhaps/possibly" in People, Gods, and Places)
                            2. Green: "probably" known to be a modern location
                            3. Aqua: "perhaps" known to be a modern location
                            4. White: "possibly" known to be a modern location

                            This project aim to construct an interactive website that will map the Jewish Diaspora in the late antiquity.

                             The terminus a quo for the proposed research is the Diaspora uprisings against Trajan (115–117) and the ensuing shifts in Jewish life, one of which was the harsh blows experienced by some of the major centers of Jewish settlement in the Diaspora, first and foremost, the Jews of Alexandria and its environs, and the Jews of Cyrenaica and Cyprus.
                            Mapping Mesopotamian Monument

                            Mapping Mesopotamian Monuments presents a topographical survey of the standing historical monuments and architecture in the region from Iraqi Kurdistan and Southeastern Anatolia (Turkey), to Southern Iraq. A work in progress, this monument survey covers all historical periods from ancient to modern. It includes ancient Mesopotamian rock reliefs carved into the cliff faces of the mountains, early Christian churches and monasteries, early Islamic, Ottoman and twentieth century architecture and monuments. This database of images invites you to explore the multiple layers of the rich historical landscape of Mesopotamia. Envisioned and directed by Professor Zainab Bahrani, the basis of the survey is an on-going field project that assesses the condition of monuments, maps their locations and records them with digital techniques in order to provide a record and to facilitate future preservation work across this region.

                            Maps of the Ottoman Empire
                            The W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research (AIAR) in Jerusalem in cooperation with the Center for Ancient Middle Eastern Landscapes (CAMEL) at the University of Chicago scanned and geo-referenced a series of topographical maps of Eastern Turkey and the lands of the broader Ottoman Empire with a grant from the US Department of Education TICFIA program. The bulk of the collection contains topographical maps compiled at the British Intelligence Division War Office in 1915 derived from map and survey data collected during multiple expeditions 1839-1906. The collection contains high resolution copies of the original maps held by AIAR, and geo-referenced versions can be requested by contacting dlir@caorc.org.

                            Mapping the Jewish Communities of the Byzantine Empire
                            The aim of the project is to map the Jewish presence in the Byzantine empire using GIS (Geographical Information Systems).

                            All information (published and unpublished) about the Jewish communities will be gathered and collated.

                            The data will be incorporated in a GIS which will be made freely available to the general public on the world-wide-web.

                            The Mediterranean Archaeological Network (MedArchNet)
                            Our vision for MedArchNet (The Mediterranean Archaeological Network) is to develop an international network of archaeological sites, from remote prehistory to the early 20th century that provides a model for world cultural heritage research, management, and presentation.  MedArchNet is a virtual organization (VO), which will be built initially in small, incremental steps by incorporating a few thematic nodes and requesting VO members to make modest contributions of data.  This prototype represents a shared vision of what MedArchNet can become--a network of archaeological site data spanning the Mediterranean basin that will empower archaeologists, historians, cultural resource managers and the public with tools to conduct cross-regional studies in ways that have never before been possible, while providing methods for monitoring site conditions and planning for infrastructure development that minimizes adverse effects on archaeological sites.

                            A State-of-the-Art System for Jordan’s Archaeological Sites

                            MEGA-Jordan is a purpose-built geographic information system (GIS) to inventory and manage archaeology sites at a national level. It has been developed using state-of-the-art technology and requires no more than basic computer skills to enter site and site element boundaries and buffer zones; site details such as condition, threats, and other monitoring updates; and to print out detailed, up-to-date reports on Jordan’s vast number of archaeological sites. The system, in both Arabic and English, is web-based and will standardiz
