The focus of this ambitious series is on the ancient Near East, including ancient Israel and its literature, from the early Neolithic to the early Hellenistic eras. Studies that are heavily philological or archaeological are both suited to this series, and can take full advantage of the hypertext capabilities of “born digital” publication. Multiple author and edited volumes as well as monographs are accepted. Proposals and manuscripts may be submitted in either English or Spanish. Manuscripts are peer reviewed by at least two scholars in the area before acceptance. Published volumes will be held to the high scholarly standards of the SBL and the Centro de Estudios de Historia del Antiguo Oriente. The partnership between the SBL and the Centro de Estudios de Historia del Antiguo Oriente was initiated under the auspices of SBL’s International Cooperation Initiative (ICI) and represents the type of international scholarly exchange that is the goal of ICI.

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

First posted on AWOL 20 November 2019. Corrected PC version on the OI site, together with its working Mac version updated 13 January 2010]

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.
Please read the INSTRUCTIONS prior to downloading to ensure proper functioning of the application files. The .zip files available for download are approximately 3gb in size and will take several minutes for download to complete.

La base de données Eurykleia constitue le cœur du projet Eurykleia. Celles qui avaient un nom
Elle permet de rendre visible la pluralité des contextes discursifs dans lesquels apparaissent des noms de femmes. Les entrées de la base ne concernent donc pas, au premier chef, les personnages eux-mêmes mais bien les occurrences des noms des femmes. Fondée sur un questionnement et des méthodes nouvelles, la base Eurykleia ouvre de nouvelles pistes de recherches et produit des résultats permettant la description d’une Antiquité véritablement mixte.

Exhibition: Sortir du gynécée. un nouveau regard sur la Grèce antique / Out of the Gynaeceum: A New Look at Ancient Greek Society

Sortir du gynécée. un nouveau regard sur la Grèce antique / Out of the Gynaeceum: A New Look at Ancient Greek Society
Peliké à figure rouge<br />
Trop de clichés circulent sur la Grèce antique : les femmes y seraient recluses, voilées ou loin des regards, dans un gynécée ; elles n’auraient aucune fonction civique ou collective. Privées d’éducation ou de culture, elles vivraient dans l’ombre des hommes, dans une cité misogyne. Sans sous-estimer l’inégalité entre les hommes et les femmes, cette exposition a pour objectif de proposer un autre regard sur la Grèce antique (VIIe-IIe siècle av. J.-C.). En intégrant les nouveaux acquis des travaux des philologues, des épigraphistes et des archéologues, et en recourant aux outils récents de la recherche en histoire des femmes et du genre, les historien.nes de cette exposition permettront aux visiteurs de découvrir des champs d’action et des domaines où les femmes antiques agissaient, géraient, pensaient, créaient, aimaient.
Le genre, en tant que méthode d’analyse qui postule l’historicité des catégories hommes/femmes et la dimension sociale et culturelle des identités, permet de se défaire des clichés et de percevoir ce qui fait la spécificité de la société grecque : l’importance primordiale de la distinction libres/esclaves, une définition différente du politique et la variété des contextes d’action individuelle.

Exposition issue d'un programme de recherche de l'UMR 8210 ANHIMA, "Anthropologie et Histoire des Mondes antiques"
Clichés about ancient Greece abound. The conventional wisdom is that women were cloistered—veiled or kept hidden from view in a gynaeceum, unable to hold either civic office or public position. Deprived of education and culture, they are said to have lived in the shadow of men, in a misogynistic society. Without underestimating the inequality that existed between men and women, the goal of this exhibit is to offer a different view of ancient Greece (7th-2nd centuries B.C.). By incorporating new findings from philologists, epigraphists, and archeologists, and by drawing on recent tools from research on the history of women and gender, this exhibit will allow visitors to discover the spheres of action and domains in which women of ancient Greece acted, supervised, thought, created, and loved. Gender, as an analytic tool that posits the historicity of the categories “man” and “woman” as well as the social and cultural dimension of identities, allows us to go beyond clichés and to understand the particularities of Greek society: the fundamental importance of the distinction between slaves and free people, a definition of politics different from our own, and a variety of contexts for individual action. 
This exhibit is the product of the“Anthropology and History of Ancient Worlds,” research project, UMR 8210 ANHIMA.

Akkadian Prayer Miscellany

[First posted in AWOL 11 June 2018, updated  16 January 2020]

Akkadian Prayer Miscellany
Alan Lenzi, University of the Pacific (Stockton, CA)
The Akkadian Prayer Miscellany is a place for me to post work I've done on a selection of Akkadian prayers. As the name suggests, the project contains a mixture of different kinds of prayers from different places and times. The one unifying element is that all of the texts are in Akkadian. As working on this site is not my top research priority (rather, see →here), additions will accumulate rather slowly.

    Open Access Journal: Le Bulletin de l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale (BIFAO)

    [First posted in AWOL 6 July 2009. Updated 16 January 2020]

    n.b. BIFAO is is now also beginning to emerge at Open EditionVolume 1116 (2017) appeared there in early December 2018.

    Le Bulletin de l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale (BIFAO)
    Le BIFAO est maintenant disponible en ligne pour tous les numéros jusqu’au 100 (2000). Le site rassemble près de 1 650 articles pour un total de plus de 35 000 pages de texte et d’illustrations, permettant l’accès direct aux numéros de la revue qui sont actuellement pour une très grande part épuisés. Ce site est destiné à être mis à jour régulièrement. Les sommaires de tous les numéros (1 à 111) sont également accessibles sur ce site.  
    Issu d’un projet lancé par l’Ifao en 2001, cet outil de recherche est le fruit de la collaboration, au sein de l’institut, de l’imprimerie, du service des publications et du service informatique. La première phase, réalisée à l’imprimerie, a consisté à scanner les 95 premiers volumes du Bulletin de l’Institut français d’archéologie orientale, puis à appliquer aux fichiers obtenus le traitement optique de reconnaissance des caractères. Les numéros récents déjà disponibles sous forme électronique ont été ajoutés. Le service des publications a effectué ensuite la relecture et la correction des tables des matières. L’ensemble des données a ensuite été transmis au service informatique qui a réalisé l’indexation du texte et sa mise en ligne.

      Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging - Nomenclature pour le catalogage des objets de musée

      Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging - Nomenclature pour le catalogage des objets de musée
      The Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging website is the most up-to-date version of the Nomenclature standard.
       Since it was first published in 1978, and throughout all the iterations since, Nomenclature has been improved and expanded by inviting input from the museum community it serves. The standard has been published in paper format as follows:
      • Nomenclature created by Robert G. Chenhall in 1978
      • Revised Nomenclature in 1988
      • Nomenclature 3.0 in 2010
      • Nomenclature 4.0 in 2015
      The Nomenclature for Museum Cataloging website (launched in 2018) is a collaborative project which includes:
      • all of Nomenclature 4.0;
      • harmonized data and images from the Parks Canada Descriptive and Visual Dictionary of Objects (This includes French equivalents to Nomenclature terms, illustrations, bibliographic data and more. Parks Canada and the American Association for State and Local History [AASLH] agreed to harmonize their two standards in order to promote standardized cataloging practices throughout both countries. Nomenclature replaces the online version of the Parks Canada Descriptive and Visual Dictionary of Objects);
      • French equivalents for all of Nomenclature, including categories, classes, sub-classes (and definitions of each) and terms; and
      • Canadian spelling for some English terms, as alternatives to the U.S. spelling.
      Nomenclature continues to be developed and maintained by the Nomenclature Task Force, with updates being performed directly within the system. Nomenclature is a living standard that will evolve to meet the needs of its users.
      Individual or institutional users are able to propose additions or changes, using the term submission forms found on the Nomenclature Community website. The Nomenclature Task Force also welcomes groups of subject experts within particular disciplines to work together with the Task Force to develop or improve Nomenclature.

      Open Access Monograph Series: Archaiologia

      Sous la direction de Sandrine Huber 
      Collection créée par Arthur Muller et dirigée par Sandrine Huber, professeure d’archéologie grecque et d’histoire de l’art grec à l’université de Lille.

      Prenant acte du développement des sciences de l’Antiquité à l’université de Lille et du déploiement des sciences de l’Archéologie jusqu’à l’époque contemporaine, les Presses universitaires du Septentrion ont créé en 2006 la collection Archaiologia, au sein du domaine Temps, Espace et Société.

      La collection Archaiologia – du mot grec qui désigne chez Thucydide l’étude du passé – accueille toutes les recherches archéologiques selon des arcs chronologique et géographique étendus, depuis la Préhistoire jusqu’à l’époque contemporaine, portant d’une part sur les civilisations méditerranéennes, classiques ou non, et leurs marges, à l’image de la vaste enquête, Historia, d’Hérodote, d’autre part sur les sociétés de nos régions. Elle est ouverte à la présentation et à l’exploitation de tous les types de sources, écrites (textuelles et épigraphiques), iconographiques et matérielles, dans toutes les directions de l’histoire (politique, économique, religieuse, artistique, culturelle…) et plus largement de l’anthropologie culturelle des sociétés du passé. La collection Archaiologia fait place aussi bien aux ouvrages monographiques qu’aux actes de manifestations scientifiques, lorsque les contributions y présentent une forte unité thématique.
