Humboldt University Nubian Expedition

Humboldt University Nubian Expedition (in English)  - Humboldt-Universität Nubien Expedition (auf Deutsch)
Rescue excavation in Sudan
An enormous dam is currently being constructed on the 4th Nile Cataract in Northern Sudan. After its completion in 2008, a 170-kilometre stretch of the river valley will be flooded. A unique cultural landscape will forever be submerged in the waters of the new lake. In contrast to the construction of the Aswan Dam in the 1960s, for the 4th Cataract there is no UNESCO campaign to react to this situation, to document the ancient sites and thereby preserve them for posterity. However, without archaeological study of the area, a whole chapter of humankind’s history, central to the understanding of Nubian cultures and of the development of African civilisations will be irreplaceably lost.

With this background in mind, the Department for Northeast African Archaeology and Cultural Studies at the Humboldt-University Berlin has taken responsibility for a 40-kilometre sector in the centre of the area to be flooded. The objective of the project, which began its activities in the area with a first survey in spring 2004, is to systematically explore the region, record all archaeological sites, and examine the most important ones through excavation.
The Research area
The concession area of H.U.N.E. is nearly exactly at the centre of the large arc, where the Nile flows from Northeast to Southwest. It comprises:
The names of those islands are Us, Sur, Sherari and Shirri. They are up to ten kilometres long and reach a width of several kilometres. The largest, Shirri, has an area of 30 square kilometres.

  • a circa 40 kilometre stretch of the left, or southwest, bank of the Nile, from Gebel Musa downriver to the marketplace of Salamat upriver,
  • a group of four larger and several smaller islands within the adjacent part of the river.

    Avestan Digital Archive (ADA)

     [First posted in AWOL 26 July 2012. Updated 22 April 2014]

    Avestan Digital Archive (ADA)
    The Avestan Digital Archive (ADA) seeks to be a digital archive containing all Avestan manuscripts spread all over the world. The Avesta, the holy book of the Zoroastrian religion, was last edited at the end of the 90s of the 19th century by the German scholar K. F. Geldner. We claim that presently a new edition is needed. The main reasons are:
    • In the last decades some manuscripts Geldner did not have access to have become available
    • Geldner did not check by himself all the manuscripts used for his edition. For some of them he had access only to copies or collations by other colleagues. This was the source of several mistakes in his edition
    • the methods of textual criticism have strongly changed since Geldner and many methodological decisions of Geldner seem today unacceptable. The most important one is undoubtedly that he does not record systematically all the variae lectiones (or a selection according to well established criteria), but only the variants he considered important for the establishment of a sure text
    • even when he checked the manuscript by himself and recorded the variae lectiones, he made mistakes more often than expected
    For all these reasons it has become a true need to provide the scholars with reasonably sure readings of the extant Avestan texts. But a new edition of the Avesta is a huge task: probably more than two hundred manuscripts scattered all over the world have to be checked. Many of them are not available even as microfilms and are only accessible through long stays in Indian libraries. Also the purchase of microfilms from European libraries is not the best way for single researchers to get access to the manuscripts: a lot of them are needed, so that the undertaking quickly gets too expensive and the result is a not easily manageable amount of microfi lms. A printed publication of such an amount of manuscripts is no more feasible, above all because of financial reasons. So it is easy to understand that yet nobody has seriously tried to undertake a new edition of the Avesta, or al least a serious review of Geldner's edition. 

    In order to solve this problem we have conceived the ADA project. This project seeks, on the one side, to find, to collect and to digitalize all the extant Avestan manuscripts. On the other hand, the ADA Project is developing a tool to provide all these manuscripts with indexes of the passages and to make them thus available on the web for researchers and for the general public. The electronic tool will allow an easy checking of all the manuscripts containing a concrete passage. This research tool can be useful not only for the Old Iranian studies, but also for the textual criticism based on manuscripts in other languages and fields of research. Furthermore, the ADA project seeks to review the manuscript transmission of the Avestan texts in all its aspects, a task which presupposes the complete ga thering and availability of the manuscripts.

So far it comprises the analysis the texts included in the published volumes of the Corpus of Hieroglyphic Luwian Inscriptions (CHLI) by J. David Hawkins. This initial phase of this project has been completed with the assistance of a research grant of the Corpus Linguistics Program sponsored by the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Dr. Ilya Yakubovich acted as the principal investigator of the project, whose team consisted of Dr. Timofey Arkhangelskiy, Mr. Sergey Boroday, and Dr. Alexei Kassian. The extension of the corpus to other Luwian texts is planned for the near future, with the eventual goal of preparing a corpus-based Luwian dictionary. The lexicographic work on the Luwian texts is further facilitated by a Humboldt Fellowship tenured by Ilya Yakubovich at the Philipps Universität Marburg in 2013–15. Special thanks go to Martien Dillo for his corrections and suggestions.

    A special feature of the Luwian corpus, which sets it apart from the electronic corpora of better-known languages, is the absence of an up-to-date Luwian dictionary in hieroglyphic transmission. The compilation of the corpus could hardly be separated from deciphering the Anatolian Hieroglyphs and interpreting the Luwian lexicon. This is why the interface of the corpus contains the provisional Luwian glossary, whose lemmata can be used as entries for automated search. Ilya Yakubovich takes the entire responsibility for the interpretative transliteration conventions adopted in the glossary. The narrow transliteration used in the corpus generally follows the system of the CHLI but incorporates several modifications reflecting the recent progress in the Luwian Studies.

    The present corpus is not meant to represent a final product. The corrections of both linguistic and technical errors will be warmly welcomed. For linguistic issues, please contact Ilya Yakubovich (sogdiana783@gmail.com). For possible problems with computer interface, please contact Timofey Arkhangelskiy (timarkh@gmail.com).
