Open Access Journal: Vita Latina

Vita Latina
ISSN: 0042-7306
"Créée en 1957 dans le cadre des expériences de latin vivant, la revue Vita Latina est éditée par l’Association du même nom qui était originellement implantée en Avignon avant d’être hébergée en 1994 par l’université Montpellier III ; elle a pendant longtemps été entièrement rédigée en latin et, outre des articles sur les auteurs classiques, elle contenait des créations littéraires originales (poèmes, courts récits) et des réflexions sur l’actualité. Son orientation éditoriale a évolué et elle s’adresse aujourd’hui à tous ceux qui souhaitent rester informés dans tous les domaines de la recherche en études anciennes (littérature, histoire, philologie, archéologie, philosophie, religion, mythologie, arts, architecture), des origines à l’Antiquité tardive, avec une spécificité pour les auteurs aux programmes des Agrégations de Lettres ou de Philosophie.

    I.Sicily ~ Building a digital corpus of Sicilian inscriptions

    I.Sicily ~ Building a digital corpus of Sicilian inscriptions

    I.Sicily is a project to create and make freely available online the complete corpus of inscriptions from ancient Sicily. The project includes texts in all languages (Greek, Latin, Phoenician/Punic, Oscan, Hebrew, and Sikel), from the first inscribed texts of the Archaic period (7th-6th centuries BC) through to those of late Antiquity (5th century AD and later). In the first instance the project is restricted to texts engraved on stone, but it is intended to expand that coverage in the future. The project uses TEI-XML mark-up, according to the EpiDoc schema.

    Internet Archaeology is now fully Open Access

    Internet Archaeology is now fully Open Access
    As of today, Internet Archaeology is an open access journal. We've concluded our hybrid phase and will no longer charge a subscription for access to any of our past and future content.
    Several things have spurred this decision. Over the last 4 years, we have made active efforts in this direction, by switching to a default CC-BY license, by opening up our back issues with an annual rolling wall, and by adjusting our subscription charges accordingly. During this time, we have also witnessed a marked increase in quality, funded submissions, including several themed issues. Internet Archaeology has always tried to be more than 'just a journal'. We explore the possibilities of the web and have delved into many different publication formats. This flexibility extends into everything we do. Being a small operation has meant we could be responsive to changes in the wider scholarly landscape, and the journal has simply reached the tipping point.
    Funded through JISC's eLib programme, Internet Archaeology was launched in 1995 as a born-digital journal and published its first issue in 1996. It was also open access before the term was really invented. As part of the initial funding agreement, and as the only sustainable option for us at that time, we introduced institutional subscriptions in 2000, followed by subscriptions for individuals in 2001. By 2010, the open access debate had truly sparked into life and it was around that time that we started to publish open access content where funds were available. By the start of 2014 however, over 50% of the articles we had published were open access, so we have decided to make open access the focus of our efforts from now on.
    There will always be challenges of course but I'm very excited to be taking the journal into this new phase.

    Open Access Journal: Kentron

    [First posted in AWOL 1 January 2011. Updated 29 September 2014]

    ISSN : 0765-0590
    Revue publiée sous la direction de Pierre Sineux. Fondée en 1985 par François Hinard (†), éditée d’abord de manière assez artisanale, Kentron est depuis 2000 publiée par les Presses universitaires de Caen et riche de plus de vingt années d’expérience. Bernard Deforge et Jacquy Chemouni ont dirigé la revue à partir de 1994. En 2008, Pierre Sineux, professeur d’histoire grecque à l’université de Caen Basse-Normandie, a pris le relais, en renouvelant complètement le Conseil scientifique et en dotant la revue d’un Comité de lecture, tout en conservant ce qui faisait, depuis le début, l’originalité de la revue: la volonté de faire dialoguer des disciplines différentes et d’enrichir l’étude de l’Antiquité en croisant les modes d’approche et en multipliant les perspectives. C’est pourquoi aujourd’hui Kentron, revue pluridisciplinaire du monde antique, ouvre ses pages aux littéraires, philosophes, linguistes, historiens et archéologues. Elle accueille des contributions en langue étrangère (anglais, allemand, espagnol, italien). Chaque volume est constitué désormais d’un dossier thématique, de varia et de comptes rendus.

    L’archive de la revue Kentron propose, au format Pdf, la totalité des articles publiés dans la revue depuis l’année 1994 (vol. 10, fasc. 1) à l’exception des deux dernières années diffusées exclusivement sous forme de volumes imprimés.

    Opening up Classics and the Humanities: Computation, the Homer Multitext Project and Citizen Science

    Opening up Classics and the Humanities: Computation, the Homer Multitext Project and Citizen Science 
    Gregory Crane
    University of Leipzig, Department of Computer Science
    Tufts University, Department of Classics September 2014  
    Abstract: Increasingly powerful computational methods are important for humanists not simply because they make it possible to ask new research questions but especially because computation makes it both possible -- and arguably essential -- to transform the relationship between humanities research and society, opening up a range of possibilities for student contributions and citizen science. To illustrate this point, this paper looks at the transformative work conducted by the Homer Multitext Project (http://homermultitext.blogspot.de/; http://www.homermultitext.org/).

    Punk Archaeology is a irreverent and relevant movement in archaeology, and these papers provide a comprehensive anti-manifesto.

    This volume was made possible by a whole community of folks ranging from the relentless Andrew Reinhard who proofed this over and over and over again to Aaron Barth who put together the conference which produced these papers. The authors were great to work with except Richard Rothaus who insisted that we include his handwritten paper. (I kid, I kid). Support for the whole deal came from the Cyprus Research Fund, the Center for Heritage Renewal at North Dakota State University, and the North Dakota Humanities Council. Administrators at the University of North Dakota are to be commended for raising their eyebrows politely and ignoring what I was doing

        Egyptology Books and Articles in PDF Online

         [First posted in AWOL 19 December 2013, updated 30 September 2014]

        Egyptology Books and Articles in PDF Online
        University of Memphis logo
        The world-wide-web is replete with links to Egyptological resources, and there are many pages of bibliography out there, of which the prime example is the Online Egyptological Bibliography. But as yet, none of the more systematic bibliographies are publishing links to the actual PDF files of books and articles which may be freely acquired online, although they may be collecting the URL references. This project attempts to go some way toward filling that gap.
        Click here for the full list.
        Notice: Bookmark this page, not the full list, as the file name may change.
        The list uses standard Egyptological abbreviations for books and journals.
        This project is a "work in progress", and is bound to contain errors and omissions. The document takes the form of one large HTML file with the data arranged by author; links to both the web page from which the file can be accessed and the PDF file for the document itself are given. Searching must be done using the Find function of your web browser. It may be possible to enhance this capability in the future, but much will depend on the reactions of internet users to this work.
        The data has been collected and arranged by Andrea Middleton, Brooke Garcia, and Robyn Price, Graduate Assistants in the Institute of Egyptian Art and Archaeology, a unit of the Department of Art in the University of Memphis (Tennessee, USA). We have tried to seek out as many books and articles as possible on Egyptological subjects which are freely accessible to anyone without the need for privileged access. Thus we have searched sites such as the Internet Archive, the University of Heidelberg Library, the Oriental Institute, the Metropolitan Museum, the Giza Library, Ancient World Online (AWOL), and many more, as well as attempting to collect links noted in the pages of EEF (Egyptologists' Electronic Forum) News.
        Sites which require institutional access or a password are not included—thus journals on JSTOR have not been indexed. Nor have papers available on www.academia.edu or  http://www.ifao.egnet.net/bifao/ (BIFAO) been included here. It is likely that some articles on JSTOR are duplicated elsewhere, and it is equally possible that some articles and books are available at more than one location. In the latter case, we have tried to give all the options.
        Please report comments, errors, omissions, etc. to  nigel.strudwick @ memphis.edu. We hope this work is useful.

        Identify Imperial Portraits: Coins

        Identify Imperial Portraits: Coins
        Sebastian Heath, ISAW/NYU

        Identify 5 of the following coins using the search tools at acsearch.info and the American Numismatic Society (ANS). You can also refer to the exhibition catalog "Faces of Power," which is available as a downloadble PDF. Don't be boring by identifying just the first five coins, instead choose a selection that interests you.

        To indicate that you've identified 5 coins, send an email with links to the same coin type that you found at either acsearch.info or at the ANS. Both of these sites allow you to link to individual records. It is those short direct links that you want to submit. Examples:


        This page is part of a sequence on identifying Roman imperial portraits. After completing the "coin identification" exercise, you can use these coins to help you identify the portraits on this page.

        Identify Imperial Portraits

        Identify Imperial Portraits
        Sebastian Heath, NYU/ISAW

        Put simply, this page collects 3D models of Roman imperial figures so that students can gain skills in identifying them. It is part of a sequence and readers are encouraged to begin on the coin identification page.

        The portraits shown below come from the following institutions or collections: Capitoline Museum, Corinth Museum, Getty Villa, Metropolitan Museum of Art, an Art Institute of Chicago via Anonymous Loan from Private Collector, North Carolina Museum of Art, Vatican Museums, and Yale University Art Gallery. The 3D models are generated from personal photographs and images from wikipedia/flickr or were dowloaded from public internet sources.

        The above [click through] model of a portrait now on display in the Getty Villa, and images of a coin, now in the collection of the American Numismatic Society, both show an image of Augustus, the first Roman Emperor. Click on the model and rotate it to view Augustus in profile. That emphasizes the similarity of the small numismatic portrait and the larger sculptural representation. Also note that the coin identifies its subject. Specialists use such "self-identifying" Roman coins to identify portraits. Follow this same procedure for the unidentified portraits below.

        One hint before you start, none of the portraits shown below are also of Augustus. That would be too easy.

        Roman Inscriptions of Britain

        Roman Inscriptions of Britain

        Welcome to the home of RIB online

        This website hosts Volume One of The Roman Inscriptions of Britain, R.G. Collingwood's and R.P. Wright's magisterial edition of 2,401 monumental inscriptions from Britain found prior to 1955. It also incorporates all Addenda and Corrigenda published in the 1995 reprint of RIB (edited by R.S.O. Tomlin) and the annual survey of inscriptions published in Britannia since.

        Preface (2014)

        Editorial Policy

        This online edition of RIB aims to faithfully reproduce the printed edition and the relevant addenda and corrigenda published in Journal of Roman Studies and Britannia. We have endeavoured to make as few editorial interventions as possible, apart from the correction of typographical errors and the modifications necessary to incorporate the addenda and corrigenda. In particular:
        • Addenda have been interleaved or appended, as appropriate (e.g., 1045, 1051). Addenda from the 1995 reprint are indicated by the notation ‘[RIB + add.]’. Addenda from Britannia since 1995 are similarly notated with their respective volume numbers and page references.
        • Corrigenda have been silently applied.
        • Last known locations of inscriptions have been updated where more recent information has been obtained.
        • Measurements have been converted from English imperial to metric, except where quoted. However, conversion of Roman measures to English feet (e.g., from passus or pedes) are unchanged.
        • Certain personal names have been regularized: Lywhd, Lluyd (sp?).
        • Instances of consonantal u have been changed to v.
        • Instances of ‘(centuria/o)’ and ‘(milliaria)’ have been converted to respective symbols (𐆛 and ) (e.g., 143, 977).
        • Newer readings characterized as ‘read’ or ‘better’ in the Addenda published with the 1995 reprint of RIB have been incorporated into transcripts.
        • References to "Mr. (now Professor) …" changed to "Professor …" (etc.)
        • Per Addendum (see note to RIB 152), all translations of numen as ‘deity’ have been changed to ‘divinity’, e.g., instances of ‘deities of the emperor’ are now ‘divinities of the emperor’.
        • Certain museum or other holding institution names have been updated (e.g., Carlisle Museum is now Tullie House Museum).
        • There have been numerous reorganizations of modern political boundaries in Britain in the nearly fifty years since RIB was first published. Accordingly, all geographical references have been updated to reflect these changes. E.g., the former county of Westmorland has been subsumed into Cumbria (formerly Cumberland), the Ridings of Yorkshire have been re-organized into their respective modern counties, Jarrow has been moved from County Durham to Tyne & Wear, etc.
        • Other geographical changes are as follows:

        The Mamasani Archaeological Project: Stage 1
        The response from colleagues to the appearance of the first edition of The Mamasani Archaeological Project: Stage One was tremendous but, for various reasons, it proved difficult to distribute the book from Tehran where it was published. Although co-publication with a publisher in Britain, Australia or Europe was investigated five years ago, nothing came of these original enquiries. Earlier this year, we raised the issue of distribution and, with the assistance of Dr Abbas Moghaddam, we put a proposal to Dr Mohammad Mortezaie, Director of the Iranian Center for Archaeological Research (ICAR), suggesting the publication of a revised, second edition, as well as a downloadable PDF version, outside of Iran so that students and scholars with an interest in Iranian archaeology could easily access the book. To our great delight this proposal was approved and the result is before you.

        Open Access Journal: Chicago House Bulletin

         [First posted in AWOL 28 December 2010. Updated 1 October 2014]

        Chicago House Bulletin
        The Epigraphic Survey based at Chicago House in Luxor, Egypt, is directed by W. Raymond Johnson, PhD, Research Associate (Associate Professor) NELC and Oriental Institute.
        The mission of the Survey since its founding in 1924 has been to produce photographs and precise line drawings of the inscriptions and relief scenes on major temples and tombs at Luxor for publication. More recently the Survey has expanded its program to include conservation, restoration, and site management. In addition to the field director, the professional staff of the Survey normally includes three to four epigraphers, four to five artists, two photographers, an architect, a librarian, several conservators, stonemasons, and IT consultants. The epigraphers and artists include both graduate students and post-doctoral scholars who have received training in all aspects of Egyptology. The Epigraphic Survey is currently conducting its 90th archaeological field season.
        Some issues of the Chicago House Bulletin originally appeared as a part of the Oriental Institute News & Notes:
