Annoted Justinian Code
http://www.uwyo.edu/lawlib/blume-justinian/_files/images/corrections1.jpg

About Fred H. Blume and the Annoted Justinian Code

From about 1920 to 1952, Fred H. Blume, attorney and Wyoming Supreme Court Justice, worked alone in his spare time to produce a massive, annotated English translation of Justinian’s Code. His hopes of seeing it published during his lifetime never came to fruition. Blume also translated Justinian’s Novels into English during the same period, but they, too, remained unpublished. This web site is dedicated primarily to housing an edited, electronic version of Justice Blume’s magnum opus--what he referred to as his ANNOTATED JUSTINIAN CODE. It also contains his translation of the Novels and other materials related to Justice Blume’s Roman law work, but it does not attempt to be a portal for research on the Code or Roman law in general.

United States State Department Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs
http://eca.state.gov/sites/all/themes/custom/eca_bureau/logo.png
These satellite images document the scale of destruction that looters continue to inflict on archaeological heritage sites during the ongoing conflict in Syria. Looting at archaeological sites destroys irreplaceable evidence of life and society in the ancient world. In the case of Syria, this evidence has helped researchers understand important historical developments such as the beginnings of agriculture and cities, the rise and fall of empires, and the development and spread of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Syria’s rich archaeological corpus includes several ancient settlements on the UNESCO World Heritage List and Tentative List and many others that help us understand the mosaic of human history.

Dura Europos
This unique Classical-period site, founded in the 3rd century BC and occupied until the 3rd century AD, demonstrates the diversity of the ancient Middle East. One of the world’s earliest churches was discovered here, as was one of the oldest preserved synagogues and numerous temples devoted to polytheistic deities. This important site of approximately 150 acres (60 hectares) is now covered by looters’ pits.

Mari
Mari was an important city in the Early and Middle Bronze Ages (ca. 3000-1600 BC). Excavations have recovered cuneiform archives as well as the remains of the famous “palace of Zimri-lim,” which was destroyed by Hammurabi of Babylon in the mid-18th century BC. Looters here have sunk several pits in the area of Zimri-lim’s palace and at other places in the city center.

Tell Sheikh Hamad
In the late 2nd millennium BC (beginning around 1350 BC), this site served as the regional capital of Assyria’s western provinces; in the 1st millennium BC, it was an important administrative center in the Assyrian empire. Looting here has focused on the citadel area, as well as parts of the lower town.

Lessico dei Grammatici Greci Antichi

[First posted in AWOL 9 Septemver 2010, updated 24 June 2014]

LGGA Lessico dei Grammatici Greci Antichi
Progetto diretto da Franco Montanari, Valter Lapini, Fausto Montana, Lara Pa
http://www.aristarchus.unige.it/lgga/images/banner.gif
Il LESSICO DEI GRAMMATICI GRECI ANTICHI (LGGA) intende fornire uno strumento di consultazione di base online per gli studiosi dell'antichità greco-latina, in particolare per le ricerche sulla storia della filologia, della grammatica e dell'erudizione antiche.

Il contenuto è costituito da schede relative ai personaggi che hanno dato contributi di vario genere alla ricerca erudita e filologico-grammaticale nel mondo antico, ordinati alfabeticamente secondo il nome latino.

Il repertorio comprende ora un totale di 567 personaggi. Le schede vengono progressivamente rese disponibili e scaricabili in formato PDF. Per accedere a questo servizio gratuito è sufficiente registrarsi con il proprio indirizzo di e-mail alla comparsa dell'apposita finestra.

La preparazione dei files pdf comporta un lavoro di rifinitura e completamento delle voci del lessico. Le schede di alcuni dei grammatici più importanti, che richiedono una voce enciclopedica molto ampia e complessa, vengono via via rese disponibili per il download in una versione comprendente la sola bibliografia aggiornata, mentre la trattazione generale e gli eventuali testi saranno aggiunti in un secondo tempo. Questa soluzione è attualmente adottata o prevista per Aelius [2] Herodianus, Apollonius [09] Dyscolus, Aristarchus, Aristophanes, Didymus, Eratosthenes, Galenus, Iulius [2] Pollux, Zenodotus.

A partire da luglio 2007, il Lessico dei Grammatici Greci Antichi ha adottato una politica di peer review, che prevede di sottoporre ciascuna scheda alla valutazione di almeno due revisori esterni prima che questa sia pubblicata..

Per visualizzare un esempio di scheda cliccare qui.


The LGGA (Lessico dei Grammatici Greci Antichi) means to provide an online reference tool for scholars of Greek-Latin Antiquity, especially for studies on the history of ancient philology, grammar and scholarship.

The contents consist of files on the personalities who variously contributed to erudite and philological-grammatical research in ancient world, alphabetically ordered by Latin name.

The catalogue includes now a total of 567 grammarians. Files are made available progressively, as soon as work on a file is completed and can be downloaded in pdf format. To access this free service you have just to sign in with your e-mail address when the relevant window appears.

The preparation of the pdf files entails a polishing and completion work on the entries of the lexicon. The files concerning some particularly important grammarians, that call for a more extended and complex encyclopedic entry, are made available for download as they are filled in just with the updated bibliography, while the general discussion and possible texts will be added on in a second time. This handling has been chosen for Aelius [2] Herodianus, Apollonius [09] Dyscolus, Aristarchus, Aristophanes, Didymus, Eratosthenes, Galenus, Iulius [2] Pollux, Zenodotus.

From July 2007 the Lessico dei Grammatici Greci Antichi has adopted a peer review policy, which consists in submitting each entry to at least two external reviewers before publication.

 Hesperia Bibliographic Citations Now on Zotero

by Andrew Reinhard
http://www.ascsa.edu.gr/html/images/logo.jpg
Bibliographic citation data for 1,500+ Hesperia articles are now freely available on the Zotero platform. Zotero is a widely used, open bibliography tool that helps scholars collect, organize, cite, and share research sources.

Researchers who use Zotero while writing articles and books that reference Hesperia articles can download citation data by visiting the ASCSA’s group page. You can choose to browse the collection of articles from 1932 to 2012 by volume year, or you can search with keywords across all articles.
When you find a citation you need, you can download that data to your own collection of research bibliography. Zotero will automatically format it in the style of your choice (e.g., Chicago Manual of Style). Citation data include article title/subtitle, author, abstract, volume/issue/page numbers, and publication date.

For those researchers with access to JSTOR, Zotero citation entries for Hesperia also contain links to the articles themselves. Once older volumes of Hesperia (1932–2009) become available online for free later this year, these links will be updated to point to the ASCSA’s website.

ASCSA monographs are also on Zotero in the “ASCSA Books” collection, organized by series (e.g., Corinth, Isthmia). This is a work in progress, with about 70 more books to be added to complete the open bibliography of all ASCSA publications...

Le projet de mise en ligne du Dictionnaire des Antiquités Grecques et Romaines est issu d'un partenariat entre des enseignants d'Histoire de l'Université du Mirail et la Mission Innovation Technologique et Multimedia qui assure son développement. Ce projet prévoit l'accès Internet au contenu de l'ouvrage et la possibilité de commenter et d'enrichir les articles.


Ce site est le résultat d'une série de travaux expérimentaux effectués dans le but de permettre l'accès aux textes par la recherche documentaire (recherche par entrées et plein-texte). Il offre à tous l'accès aux fichiers numérisés ainsi que les fonctionnalités de recherches internes.


La consultation des enrichissements officiels est désormais accessible.
Après quelques incidents techniques, la recherche est de nouveau fonctionnelle.

Gertrude Bell Archive, Newcastle University Library
http://www.gerty.ncl.ac.uk/layout_images/gertrude.jpg
Having most relevance for research in Archaeology, History, Politics and Travel, the books and papers of Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) were given to Newcastle University Library by Gertrude's half-sister, Lady Richmond, although part of the Doughty-Wylie correspondence came from St. Anthony's College, Oxford. They are under the care of the Special Collections department, which can be contacted at: lib-specenq@ncl.ac.uk.


The Gertrude Bell Collection comprises books on Arabic and Persian languages and on the histories of Arabia, and the Near and Middle East which were formerly part of Gertrude's working library. These can be found in the Library's online catalogue.
The Papers
The Gertrude Bell Papers comprise Gertrude's personal correspondence, diaries and miscellaneous items, such as Review of the Civil Administration of Mesopotamia (1920), notebooks, obituaries, lecture notes and miscellaneous reports, memoranda and cuttings. Circa. 1,600 letters and diaries covering the years 1877-1879 and 1893-1900 (with some gaps reflecting where we do not have the hard-copy diary) can be found transcribed on this website, along with c.7,000 of her archaeological and travel photographs. (The photographic portion of the Gertrude Bell archive is administered by the School of Historical Studies.) Neither letters to and from army officer Charles Doughty-Wylie (written 1913-1915) nor any of the Miscellaneous materials have been transcribed although a handlist to the Miscellaneous part of the collection is available


Gertrude Bell (1868-1926)
Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell was born into a wealthy family at Washington New Hall in what was then County Durham. Initially home-schooled, she then attended school in London and graduated with a first-class degree in Modern History from Oxford University. Thereafter she travelled in Europe and also spent several months in Bucharest and in Tehran. Her travels continued with two round-the-world trips: one in 1897-1898 and one in 1902-1903.


From the turn of the century, Gertrude developed a love of the Arab peoples - she learned their languages, investigated their archaeological sites and travelled deep into the desert. This intimate knowledge of the country and its tribes made her a target of British Intelligence recruitment during the First World War. At the end of the war, Gertrude focussed on the future of Mesopotamia and was to become a powerful force in Iraqi politics, becoming a kingmaker when her preferred choice, Faisal (son of Husain, the Sharif of Mecca and King of the Hijaz) was crowned King of the state of Iraq in August 1921.


Gertrude's first love remained archaeology and, as Honorary Director of Antiquities in Iraq, she established the Iraq Museum in Baghdad. Her 1905 expedition through the Syrian Desert to Asia Minor was published as The Desert and the Sown and her study, in 1907, of Binbirkilise on the Kara Dag mountain was published as The Thousand and One Churches and remains the standard work on early Byzantine architecture in Anatolia.

 OCHRE Data Service
The OCHRE Data Service facilitates the use of the Online Cultural and Historical Research Environment (OCHRE) worldwide to record, integrate, analyze, publish, and preserve cultural and historical information in all of its digital forms. Located in the Oriental Institute (OI) at the University of Chicago, we provide personal support for customized database projects in the humanities, social sciences, and beyond.

As a center of research devoted to the study of the Ancient Near East, the Oriental Institute has long been an environment where the collection, management, analysis and preservation of cultural heritage is of the highest priority and held to the highest standard. It is no surprise, then, that the Oriental Institute is home to OCHRE—an innovative, integrative software system for managing data from the past, applying it to today's research questions, and archiving it for future study.
The OCHRE Data Service consists of a team of advanced research scholars, experienced technology professionals, and students trained in data entry, editing, and specialized photography. A community of users, based at universities and other institutions around the world, holds the OCHRE Data Service accountable for providing services and features that satisfy the full cycle of data management—from recording, to integration, analysis, publication, and, ultimately, to data preservation.
