Wall Map now Available: Asia Minor in the Second Century C.E.

Wall Map now Available: Asia Minor in the Second Century C.E.
After several years of preparation, AWMC’s newest wall map is now available online.  This map is a successor to that of J.G.C. Anderson (1903) and its partial revision by W.M. Calder and G.E. Bean (1958).  It was displayed in draft at the ‘Roads and Routes in Anatolia’ conference organized by the British Institute at Ankara (March 2014).  It was then revised with a view to being issued with the volume planned to follow that meeting in due course.  Meantime the Center is now making the map available online.

The map may be downloaded from Dropbox at this link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mf0r8zw9rk1ckiv/Asia%20Minor%20Map%20FINAL.tif?dl=0

Shaping the Mediterranean basin: islands, coastlines and cultures across time

Shaping the Mediterranean basin: islands, coastlines and cultures across time
By bridging approaches and methodologies from geosciences, archaeology and history, geoarchaeology is transforming our understanding of the history and cultures that have shaped the Mediterranean basin over millennia. The sheer diversity of current research offers an excellent opportunity for moving beyond geographical frontiers and to begin addressing the needs of a multifaceted and evolving Mediterranean world. This workshop calls upon environmental scientists, archaeologists and historians to discuss and share research advances in the geoarchaeology of Mediterranean islands and coastlines. The workshop will address issues, challenges and prospects of current research on Mediterranean island and coastal environments.

News from the PSI – Papiri della Società Italiana

PSI – Papiri della Società Italiana Project News
Dear colleagues,
just a quick update about the psi-online project, on behalf of all the
friends (and all the Institutions) involved in it. On our website
(www.psi-online.it) it is now possible to browse images and datas about
P. Flor. I, PSI inv. (around 300 papyri kept in the Istituto Vitelli but
not published in the main PSI series, as PSI Com9, PSI Congr.XX; see the
list in PSI XVI, pp. 313-334), P. Tebt. Pad. I and a number of P. Tebt.
Pad. inv. (i.e., not yet published).
During next months we will add also P.Prag. II-III and P.Flor. II-III to
the database, as well as more informations on the collections involved.

Carissimi saluti,

Filming Antiquity

Filming Antiquity
Filming Antiquity is an interdisciplinary collaboration and digitisation project funded by a grant from the Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects (CHIRP) at University College London (UCL).  Over the next two years, Filming Antiquity will be digitising excavation films from the Harding archive held in the UCL Institute of Archaeology and making these films accessible through a project website.  The project team members come from three different UCL departments: Archaeology, English and Information Studies.

The project has three main objectives: a) the digitisation of excavation films currently held in the UCL Institute of Archaeology (IoA), b) an interdisciplinary symposium with screenings of a sample of the digitised films and discussion and c) the construction of an online archive of these films and supporting materials. 

The films we propose to digitise feature excavations and local context in 1930s British Mandate Palestine.  The early 20th century saw radical developments in technologies of transmission and mass communication.  In this period archaeology gradually shifted from amateur to professional practice, as the first generations of trained archaeologists solidified their techniques in the field.  Supported by the industrialists and museums who funded their work, these archaeologists embraced moving image technology to record life and work on site.  These amateur productions were sometimes shown alongside public exhibitions of artefacts as cinematic proof of the spadework tackling the problems of ancient civilisations within a changing modern context. 

The collection of these artefacts into an online archive will contribute to dialogues on information storage and knowledge production through digital resources.  Filming Antiquity provides a model for making excavation films accessible and inviting public discussions and interdisciplinary scholarship through online platforms.

Syriaca.org: The Syriac Reference Portal

[First posted in AWOL  26 March 2014, updated 20 February 2017]

What is Syriac?

Syriac is a language which once flourished on the Mesopotamian plateau. A dialect of Aramaic, Syriac was widely used during much of the first millenium of the common era. Syriac speaking communities could be found in what today would be Turkey, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, India, Central Asia, China, and Mongolia. Sources in Syriac hold immense value for increasing our historical understanding of the Mediterranean, the Middle East and Asia. In particular, Syriac sources document key moments in the development and interaction of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and other religions of Late Antiquity. Learn more…

What is Syriaca.org?

Syriaca.org: The Syriac Reference Portal is a digital project for the study of Syriac literature, culture, and history. Today, a number of heritage communities around the world have linguistic, religious or cultural identities with roots in Syriac language and culture. Syriaca.org exists to document and preserve these Syriac cultural heritages. The online tools published by Syriaca.org are intended for use by a wide audience including researchers and students, members of Syriac heritage communities and the interested general public. In order to meet the diverse needs of users, the design of Syriaca.org is inherently collaborative and fluid.

The primary function of Syriaca.org is to be a reference hub for digitally linking research findings. Syriaca.org's publications compile and classify core data for the study of Syriac sources, offer the scholarly community digital tools for freely disseminating that data, and facilitate further research through the creation of shared digital tools and infrastructure.
