New Open Access Journal: In-Scription: revue en ligne d'études épigraphiques

In-Scription: revue en ligne d'études épigraphiques
La revue In-Scription: revue en ligne d'études épigraphiques propose de créer le premier lieu de publication en ligne de textes scientifiques consacrés à l'étude des écritures médiévales en dehors du monde manuscrit, et en particulier à celle des inscriptions médiévales. Elle est animée par l'équipe du Corpus des inscriptions de la France médiévale de Poitiers (CESCM) et entend favoriser la publication dans des délais courts de textes originaux en français et en anglais, produits notamment par de jeunes chercheurs. Un comité de lecture évalue la qualité et la pertinence des textes et sollicite des expertises extérieures le cas échéant. Le responsable prépare la publication en lien avec les auteurs et le webmaster. La revue entend publier les textes au fil de l'eau afin de mettre les textes le plus rapidement possible à disposition d'une communauté scientifique qui possède aujourd'hui assez peu de journaux spécialisés.

Abstract The current volume of the Forschungen in Ephesos presents the concluding results of the recent archaeological and art-hisorical investigations at the monumental tomb in the hinterland of Ephesos. The date ot the Mausoleum can be fixed accumulative between 310 and 280/70 BC and following the interpretation of references regarding the monument`s dedication and the sources for the historical events Antigonos I. Monophthalmos is recognised as the newly identified personality to whom the Mausoleum belonged.

Open Greek and Latin Project of the Open Philology Project

Open Greek and Latin Project of the Open Philology Project
The ultimate goal is to represent every source text produced in Classical Greek or Latin from antiquity through the present, including texts preserved in manuscript tradition as well as on inscriptions, papyri, ostraca and other written artifacts.  Over the course of the next five years, we will focus upon converting as much Greek and Latin, available as scanned printed books, into an open, dynamic corpus, continuously augmented and improved by a combination of automated processes and human contributions of many kinds. The focus upon Greek and Latin reflects both the belief that we have an obligation to disseminate European cultural heritage and the observation that recent advances in OCR technology for Greek and Latin make these intertwined languages ready for large-scale work.

The Open Greek and Latin Project aims at providing at least one version for all Greek and Latin sources produced during antiquity (through c. 600 CE) and a growing collection from the vast body of post-classical Greek and Latin that still survives. Perhaps 150 million words of Greek and Latin, preserved in manuscripts, on stone, on papyrus or other writing surface, survive from antiquity. Analysis of 10,000 books in Latin, downloaded from, identified more than 200 million words of post-classical Latin. With 70,000 public domain books listed in the Hathi Trust as being in Ancient Greek or Latin, the amount of Greek and Latin already available will almost certainly exceed 1 billion words.

Where existing corpora of Greek and Latin have generally included one edition of a work, Open Greek and Latin Corpus is designed to manage multiple versions of, and to represent the complete textual history of, a work: every manuscript, every papyrus fragment, and every printed edition are all versions within the history of a text. In the short run, this involves using OCR-technology optimized for Classical Greek and Latin to create an open corpus that is reasonably comprehensive for the c. 100 million words produced through c. 600 CE and that begins to make available the billions of words produced after 600 CE in Greek and Latin that survive.

Karanis Housing Project

Karanis Housing Project
Karanis was a Greco-Roman town located in Egypt's Fayoum Region. Founded in the third century BCE, the town remained inhabited until the fifth century CE. A small population of Roman mercenaries lived in the primarily agrarian town, where sustenance farmers produced crops such as wheat, barley, olives, figs, and walnuts. Alexandria, one of the major centers of Roman trade, lay a mere 124 miles to the north of Karanis, making this small, rural town a gateway to more populated and urban areas.

The site was primarily excavated by a team from the University of Michigan, lead by Francis W. Kelsey, in the 1920s. However, Kelsey was not the first person to show interest in Karanis; local farmers had been obtaining government permits to remove nitrogen-rich soil from the site to use as fertilizer (sebbakh) up until the early twentieth century, and the papyri they inevitably unearthed caught the attention of English scholars Bernard Pyne Grenfell and Arthur Surridge Hunt, who completed minor excavations of the site in 1895 before moving to a different site. As a result, Kelsey and his team were forced to work around whole swaths of the town that had been destroyed by earlier activities -- most notably, an area right in the center of the Karanis mound. The Michigan team completed a wonderfully thorough excavation of the areas that remained intact, cataloging each artifact and making careful note of where exactly each item was discovered. This provides crucial information to archeologists and classicists who wish to consider artifacts in their original contexts.

The Karanis Housing Project seeks to bring this valuable information into the twenty-first century by digitizing the dig and making a comprehensive list of finds easily accessible and searchable online. While still in its early stages, the model developed based on data from Karanis will eventually be applied to other excavations, providing a way to analyze finds and query specific artifacts that is far more user-friendly than sifting through boxes of field notes.

Open Access Journal: Bulletin of the History of Archaeology

[First posted in AWOL 10 December 2011. Updated 1 November 2016]

Bulletin of the History of Archaeology
ISSN: 2047-6930 (online)
ISSN: 1062-4740 (print)

The Bulletin of the History of Archaeology (BHA) was inaugurated nearly 19 years ago as a forum to exchange research, information on on-going projects, and resources solely devoted to the history of archaeology. Since that time it has become global in its reach and interests, but retains its focus on exchanging knowledge about the history of archaeology.
