There are over 5000 items in the collection, most of which were collected by the pharmacist Sir Henry Wellcome. The collection arrived in Swansea in 1971 as part of the distribution of Wellcome’s objects. The Egypt Centre, as it is now known, opened its doors in 1998, and focuses on the Preservation of the Collection and Collection Management, Learning and Teaching, and Widening Participation.
The online collection catalogue (Abaset) was designed specifically with the Egypt Centre in mind. Sam Powell, as a student at Swansea University and volunteer at the Egypt Centre, used her experience of working with the collection to design a bespoke new platform that would allow the collection to be appreciated virtually. Through working closely with the Egypt Centre staff, Abaset has been honed to ensure that the user experience is as intuitive as possible, and meeting the needs of a diverse collection.

This volume deals with the Assyrian and the Babylonian Empires and seeks to provide new data for the ways that enabled these states to govern efficaciously their vast territories and diverse populations across the ancient Middle East. With both states exerting and distributing power and authority from centre to periphery, the channels through which these were asserted are understood to be of key concern in order to assess the imperial structures. Elucidating the mechanisms of control, especially in view of the always fragile relations between the state centre and remote peripheries, has long been a major subject in the study on ancient empires.
The volume edited by Shuichi Hasegawa and Karen Radner is specifically concerned with tracing the Assyrian and Babylonian Empires’ reach into and their hold over their more peripheral regions. The papers collected in this volume cover the period from the 9th to the 6th century BCE and draw on the rich archaeological and textual data that has come to light in old and new excavations and survey projects in Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Turkey, and in particular at the Dinka Settlement Complex (Gird-i Bazar and Qalat-i Dinka), the cemetery discovered at Sanandaj, Tel Rekhesh, Tell Ali al-Hajj, Tell Mastuma and Yasin Tepe.

We run regular lectures, conferences and workshops at our institute in Nicosia and now we are happy to share our program online.
Among the many sites of the rich Iraqi historical and cultural heritage, the Marshes of Southern Iraq occupy a very special place. Numerous studies show a consensus, that the first states in the human history, the Sumerian city-states, were formed thanks to the interaction between the interwoven agricultural and marsh areas, with mutual assistance and mutual dependence. The Marsh area is a geographical and cultural entity constantly changing through the millennia because of the shifting and changing of the natural river beds and the construction, silting and abandonment of the artificial canals serving for irrigation, drainage and transportation. These deltaic processes are connected to another important problem in the history of mankind, particular to the Ancient South Mesopotamia: the initial settlement of the Mesopotamian alluvium. Several Russian academic institutions started cooperation with the State Board of Antiquities and Heritage of Iraq for a detailed study of the Marsh area and two adjacent archaeological sites in this context.

The Photographic Archive of the British School at Rome includes over 100,000 items which are testimony to the evolution of processing techniques since the birth of Photography in 1839. A number of unique collections of 19th century photographs found their way into the BSR and out of these the Archive grew to include later collections, which document the research and activities of the BSR up to the present day.
A broad range of subjects is covered and make these collections of invaluable importance for research in the humanities, art history, architecture, visual studies and many other related disciplines. Topics concerned are Italian and North African archaeology and topography, ancient Greek, Etruscan and Roman art, in particular sculpture, and European medieval and Renaissance art and architecture. Collections of images relating to BSR events and activities, and the work of BSR Fine Art Fellows, have also been accurately preserved.
The photographic material was assembled and acquired thanks to the generous donations of former BSR Directors, Assistant Directors, Librarians or presented to the BSR by individuals in order to broaden and enrich the institutional resources for academic research.
The uniqueness of the BSR photographic holdings lies not only in the importance of the many and various collections which found their home in Rome throughout the years, but also in the nodes and relationships arising from their ownership and provenance. From the second half of the 19th Century with collections of master photographers and pioneering publishers - James Graham Collection (c. 1855), Robert MacPherson Collection (1854-1868), John-Henry Parker Collection (1865–79) - to the years marking the beginning of amateurial experiences - Peter Paul Mackey Collection (1890-1910), Thomas Ashby Collection (1890-1925), Dora & Agnes Bulwer Collection (1890-c.1930?), John William Cruickshank Collection (1892-1918), Robert Gardner Collection (1912-13).
Looking at the 20th Century and at the origins of more complex bodies of archival holdings, photographic materials to consider noteworthy belong to the Eugenie Strong Collection (1900-c. 1930), the John Marshall Collection (1900-28), the Lantern slides Collection (1901-1950?) and the John Bryan Ward-Perkins Collection (1946-74).
A short description to each collection is provided on the BSR website.
The Photographic Archive also encourages collaboration and discussion between other Archives, thus creating in the BSR a forum for discussion, lectures, courses, exhibitions and collaborative projects.
The increase in activities and events relating to the Photographic Archive was triggered in 2002 by a generous three-year grant from The Getty Foundation which funded the cataloguing and organization of three 19th century collections of photographs. A second two-year grant from The Getty Foundation in 2007 funded the cataloguing and organization of part of the J.B. Ward-Perkins collection. Other private individuals, sponsors and institutions have contributed to the enhancement of this extraordinary digital patrimony and we wish to thank the generosity and support of: Peter Brown, BSR Honorary Fellow (2008, 2010, 2012-2014); Università del Salento (2011-13); Peter and Ann Wiseman (2012-2014); and Jim and Angela Ball, BSR Ashby Society members (2013-2014).

Quelle place occupe l’Occident dans les exportations attiques à figures rouges au IVe siècle av. J.-C. ? [...] Ce qui rend d’abord plus difficile l’étude des vases attiques à figures rouges du IVe siècle par rapport à ceux du Ve, c’est l’aspect beaucoup moins structuré d’une bonne partie de la production. Certes il existe encore, au début du IVe siècle, conformément à la tradition plus ancienne, des ateliers aux pièces abondantes et de niveaux variés, et qui sont clairement identifiables : c’est le cas par exemple des Peintres de Méléagre et de Iéna. Mais, par la suite, les personnalités artistiques de valeur se font plus rares, et sont plus difficiles à appréhender dans des œuvres qui deviennent d’ailleurs moins nombreuses [...] On reste en revanche frappé par la place importante qu’occupent des groupes de pièces, souvent plus que médiocres et qui constituent cependant de gros ateliers, dont les produits paraissent en quelque sorte standardisés, aussi bien dans leurs formes, devenues on le sait très peu nombreuses, que dans leur décor [...]. Un autre type de différence entre le Ve et le IVe siècle tient au caractère beaucoup plus vague de la chronologie : l’évolution stylistique est bien moins évidente que pour le siècle précédent, et on ne peut a priori supposer, par exemple, que les produits les plus médiocres et les plus hâtifs soient nécessairement les plus tardifs. Par ailleurs, la transformation de certaines formes de vases, qui tendent à s’étirer en hauteur, pourrait fournir des indices d’une chronologie relative ; mais cette évolution ne se constate malheureusement que sur des types de vases qui sont à peu près absents de l’Occident, c’est-à-dire la pélikè, l’hydrie ou le cratère en calice ; seul le skyphos, dont la forme se modifie assez sensiblement dans le cours du IVe siècle, est bien représenté dans l’Ouest.

On October 11, 1960, was completed the first Czech (then Czechoslovak) mission at Abusir. The Czech (former Czechoslovak) Institute of Egyptology, Faculty of Arts, Charles University, Prague, is commemorating the 60th anniversary of the beginning of archaeological works at the concession of Abusir in the Arab Republic of Egypt. The anniversary will be discussed in the latest, 24th issue of our journal Prague Egyptological Studies. On the occasion of the anniversary, we are making available online the updated list of structures excavated and numbered at Abusir and North Saqqara during the Czech archaeological missions at Abusir and Saqqara North. Total number for now is 34 structures in Central (Royal) Abusir, 6 structures in Abusir West, 109 structures in Abusir South and 4 more in North Saqqara. All are represented in a concise listing with a selective bibliography of the publications, predominantly in English and German and a link to a map application in the ArcGIS Online, where you can find the particular structures in the map. The list of the structures will be also a part of the latest, 25th issue of our journal Prague Egyptological Studies.

This site presents D.B. Monro's A Grammar of the Homeric Dialect (Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1891). It was created in 2018 with support from the Roberts Fund for Classical Studies. Bruce Robertson of Mount Allison University performed the OCR using Rigaudon, from the original scans on the Internet Archive. The raw output is available on Lace. The OCR output was corrected and the HTML files created by Meagan Ayer and Seth Levin. The web interface was created by Ryan Burke. Paradigm charts were created by Seth Levin and Meagan Ayer. Meagan Ayer carried out a thorough editing, proofreading, and reformatting of the HTML pages (see below). The content is freely available for re-use under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike license.
In preparing this digital version of Monro's grammar we have aimed to provide an easily navigated and referenced version of his classic work. A new section of paradigm charts has been added and in some instances hyperlinked to appropriate sections of Monro's text JPEGs of the original pages have been provided at the bottom of each page for comparison.

Die Gründung der Open-Access-Zeitschrift MANICULAE geht aus der alltäglichen Erfahrung des Akademievorhabens ,Handschriftencensus‘ hervor. Fortlaufend werden rund um die Welt Entdeckungen und Beobachtungen gemacht, für die es keinen passenden Publikationsort gibt. Der klassische Aufsatz in einer Zeitschrift benötigt mehr Zeit, eine Nachricht auf Twitter erfolgt zwar rasch, ist aber wenig nachhaltig und nach wenigen Stunden schon wieder vergessen. Manche Entdeckung, so lehrt die Erfahrung, verschwindet über Jahre oder Jahrzehnte in der ‚wissenschaftlichen‘ Schublade und wird am Ende nicht mehr bekannt gemacht.
MANICULAE will hier Abhilfe schaffen. Kurze, prägnant formulierte Beiträge sollen vor allem dem Ziel dienen, sich rasch und verlässlich über Neuigkeiten auf dem Gebiet der Handschriftenforschung zu informieren.
Die Zeitschrift will den für die mediävistischen Fachdisziplinen sowie die Bibliotheks- und Geschichtswissenschaft unverzichtbaren Aspekten der historischen Grundwissenschaften eine den modernen wissenschaftlichen Standards entsprechende Plattform bieten. Mögliche Beiträge erstrecken sich u.a. auf folgende Gebiete:
- Fundbericht bisher unbekannter Handschriften und Fragmente
- Anzeige bibliothekarischer Digitalisierungsprojekte
- Identifikation bisher unbekannter Fragmente
- Beobachtungen zur Provenienz (z.B. Identifikation von Trägerbänden oder Auktionen)
- Allgemeine Neuigkeiten zu Handschriften und Fragmenten (z.B. Besitz- oder Zustandsveränderungen, Text-, Autor-, Schreiber- oder Besitzeridentifikationen etc.)
Neue Beiträge zu Themen der Überlieferungsforschung mittelalterlicher Texte können jederzeit per Mail eingereicht werden. Kurze Redaktionswege und die Begutachtung der Beiträge per Peer-Review ermöglichen eine rasche Veröffentlichung und Sichtbarkeit in professionellem Rahmen.

PATRISTICA ET MEDIÆVALIA tiene el orgullo de ser la primera revista especializada en temas de filosofía medieval de Latinoamérica. Fue fundada en 1975 por María Mercedes Bergadá, dirigida desde el año 1987 hasta el 2018 por Francisco Bertelloni, y actualmente por Claudia D’Amico.
La Sección de Estudios de Filosofía Medieval de la Facultad de Filosofía y Letras de la Universidad de Buenos Aires ha encontrado en esta publicación un medio de comunicación y de intercambio efectivo con la comunidad científica dedicada a la investigación del pensamiento y de la filosofía medievales.
Enfoque y alcance
Patristica et Mediævalia tiene como finalidad publicar trabajos científicos e inéditos producidos por miembros de la comunidad académica tanto local, como regional e internacional.
La revista conserva su nombre fundacional. Con todo, el ámbito temático de las contribuciones que espera recibir en esta etapa no se reduce de ningún modo a autores/as ligados/as exclusivamente al pensamiento cristiano, sino más bien a todos/as aquellos/as relacionados/as con la cultura del Libro –judaísmo, cristianismo e Islam– que florecieron en un amplio arco temporal que se extiende desde la Antigüedad tardía hasta el Renacimiento del cinquecento.
A partir del volumen 40, Patristica et Mediævalia publica dos números por año (enero-junio y julio-diciembre) reunidos en un único volumen, tanto en su versión digital como impresa.
- Vol 38 (2017)This volume of Patristica et Mediaevalia (2017) presents a series of studies focused on the reception of Aristotle’s political and ethical thought in Iberian and Latin American scholasticism. The background of these studies is the research project “Reception and Development of Aristotle’s Political Thought in Latin America, 16th-18th Centuries”, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation (Germany).
- Vol 36 (2015)The present volume of Patristica & Mediaevalia has as a central topic philosophical, along with theological and legal, assessments to a particular form of slavery -i.e. Black slavery- regrettably practiced in Latin America, in the period that stretches from the 16th up to the 19th century. Even more specifically, the contributors present studies on authors and works that could be characterized as representing "Second Scholasticism" broadly speaking, which should include some representative thinkers both of Iberian and Latin-American Scholasticism.

I am happy and proud to present to you the Database of Medieval Nubian Texts (DBMNT), which is the outcome of roughly ten years of my work on different aspects of literary culture of Christian Nubia. The DBMNT was officially inaugurated in 2011 as an integral part of my book entitled Chronological Systems of Christian Nubia, where different aspects of counting time in the Nubian kingdoms of Nobadia, Makuria, and Alwa between the mid-sixth and fifteenth centuries are treated in detail. At the beginning, the database consisted of 733 records, gathering all Nubian texts in which various chronological phenomena are recorded. However, since the beginning of work, the DBMNT was constructed to include different kinds of written sources from Christian Nubia, not only those containing dates and/or other chronological indicators. For the past four years, I have focused on collecting and entering those sources to produce a major update to the DBMNT. As a result, at present the database contains 2942 records, which cover all possible forms of written expression left by the inhabitants of the Middle Nile Valley in the Middle Ages. Hence, the user will find here written sources of various forms and functions (from important administrative inscriptions and documents, through literary and liturgical manuscripts, private correspondence, elaborate epitaphs and modest tombstones, graffiti left by pious pilgrims on walls of churches, to various symbols scratched on ceramic vessels), executed on all possible kinds of media (stone, papyrus, paper, parchment, leather, pottery, wood, metal, textiles, glass, rocks, and walls of buildings).
The task of gathering all these sources and processing them was not easy and required browsing through an enormous quantity of publications, not infrequently extremely hard to access. As a result, along with texts that were published lege artis (i.e. with a full description, transcription, translation, commentary, and – most ideally – photo and/or tracing), the DBMNT includes also those that were quasi-published (i.e. they have more or less decent transcriptions but no translations and commentaries or vice versa) and those that are classified as unpublished (i.e. they are only mentioned in passing, their content is described without giving a transcription, or they are available only in the form of photographs or tracings/drawings). Of course, the last two cases are the most problematic in terms of metadata (findspot, material, technique of execution, dimensions, colour) and the user will frequently come across empty fields and fields with the note 'not recorded'. These voids will hopefully be filled in, when access to particular objects and/or their documentation is obtained and new publications come out.Grzegorz Ochała
