The world’s oldest written dialects test the limits of our linguistic imaginations. In some cases, limited primary source materials and a dearth of bilingual evidence leave the scholar with few strategies for decipherment. Even when primary texts are plentiful, early written languages may present additional challenges. For Near Eastern isolates like Sumerian and Elamite, each of which is unrelated to any other known tongue, comparative evidence from cognate languages cannot be used to bridge gaps in our comprehension of either language’s grammar, semantics, or phonology, to name only one example. This presentation will use the Sumerian wordfield of vision as a case study to explore how database compilation and analysis can illuminate obscure aspects of ancient languages. While a variety of bilingual documents, including royal inscriptions and lexical lists, pair Sumerian texts with their translations in Akkadian, a more fully understood Semitic language related to Arabic and Hebrew, many grammatical and semantic features of Sumerian remain enigmatic. The case study to be presented in this seminar concerns an analysis of more than 700 instances of verbs of vision compiled from Sumerian literary texts (Reference to author’s work). Each vocabulary instance was tagged with its morphological and grammatical features, as well as aspects of its context, such as the identity of the verb’s subject and object. Sorting the vocabulary instances according to these attributes revealed characteristics of each verb’s usage that had previously been overlooked, leading to improved definitions for many of the verbs examined in the study and uncovering ideological and theological principles governing their use. Database technologies allow scholars to search for patterns across a much wider range of information than is feasible using traditional methods. Rather than being at odds with literary and linguistic research, data mining and database approaches allow for new observations that are missed in smaller datasets (Hayles 2007 and Kirschenbaum 2007), and database-oriented research is becoming more common in the study of modern languages (for example, Ktori et al. 2008). The proliferation of online text corpora like the Perseus Digital Library and the Electronic Text Corpus of Sumerian Literature allow for more comprehensive and sophisticated linguistic studies of ancient languages than ever before. This presentation offers a methodology for database-driven lexical analysis that is adaptable to other ancient languages and asserts that databases should be an integral part of our philological toolkit.

The Oxford Roman Economy Project

[First posted on AWOL 26 November 2012, updated 24 November 2017]

The Oxford Roman Economy Project
The Oxford Roman Economy Project is a research project based in the Faculty of Classics, at the University of Oxford. The project, lead by Prof. Alan Bowman and Prof. Andrew Wilson, was originally funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council for the period from October 2005 to end September 2010, but additional funding through the generosity of Baron Lorne Thyssen now allows it to continue.
The Oxford Roman Economy Project currently consists of:
  1. A research programme on the Roman Economy which includes the development and maintenance of an online database of documentary and archaeological material, the organisation of conferences, seminars and occasional lectures, and the publication of research. The original focus on quantification is now expanded with the aim of also exploring vital parts of ancient life which have not hitherto been much considered in economic terms (e.g. the production and collecting of art; the economics of ancient religion).
  2. A looser constellation of graduate students and visiting researchers who are using material from and contributing material to the project’s website and conferences.
  3. A series, Oxford Studies in the Roman Economy, published by Oxford University Press.
The research programme addresses the fundamentals of the Roman imperial economy and analyses all major economic activities (including agriculture, trade, commerce, and extraction), utilising quantifiable bodies of archaeological and documentary evidence and placing them in the broader structural context of regional variation, distribution, size and nature of markets, supply and demand. The project studies the economy of the Roman world between the Republican period and Late Antiquity, with a particular focus on the period between 100 BC and AD 350, including the era of greatest imperial expansion and economic growth (to c. AD 200), followed by a century conventionally perceived as one of contraction or decline, and then something of a revival under the Tetrarchy and Constantine. Geographically, the project draws on material selected from all over the Mediterranean world. 
The large amounts of data that are studied during the project, which mostly already have been published in some form or another, are stored and organized in a large database, which is currently being made accessible online to the wider scholarly community through this website.
An integral part of the project is a series of conferences addressing particular aspects of the economy, such as urbanization (2007), agriculture (2008), trade (2009), metals, mining and coinage (2010), the economics of Roman art (2011), and urban economic life in preindustrial Europe and the Mediterranean (2012).

Follow the Pots

Follow the Pots
The ‘Follow the Pots’ research program explores two interconnected sides of an archaeological looting story: the conventional archaeological investigation of the emergence of prehistoric urbanism and increasing social complexity in the Early Bronze Age of the southern Levant, and the multiple and contested values of this archaeological heritage to multiple stakeholders today.
What this means is that we study how archaeologists, people living in the southern Ghor, looters, middlemen, museum administrators, government officials, antiquities dealers, and collectors think about, acquire, and use pots and other grave goods from the Early Bronze Age (EBA) cemeteries of Fifa, Bab adh-Dhra` and en-Naqa/es-Safi.
Follow the Pots (FTP) emerges from several years of archaeological fieldwork and analysis by Chesson and Kersel, and more broadly the Expedition to the Dead Sea Plain. In this examination of the social lives of archaeological objects, the artifacts have at least two lives as
(1) as grave goods in 5,000 year old tombs; and
(2) as looted and excavated artifacts in the present, where they are launched on new lives as museum pieces, tourist trinkets, and archaeologically studied objects.
FTP arises from our realization that only by integrating ethnography and archaeology can we hope to produce a holistic and cohesive story about the use and reuse of these EBA materials.
Directors: Drs. Morag M. Kersel (Dept. of Anthropology, DePaul University) and Meredith S. Chesson (Dept. of Anthropology, University of Notre Dame) with much-appreciated support and guidance from Dr. R. Thomas Schaub (EDSP, Emeritus Indiana University of Pennsylvania)

Friday Quick Hits and Varia

It’s a long weekend here in North Dakotaland punctuated by food, sport, and the spectacle of American consumerism. So far the food has been better than the sport with Australia slinking to 165/4 in the first test of the Ashes, but it’s only day two and the captain is at the crease. Plus, my second favorite NFL team managed to win on Thanksgiving (whoever is playing the Cowboys) and I’m guardedly optimistic that Ohio State can win The Game on Saturday. 

Whatever happens, the weekend is always a nice way to set up for the grading, paper writing, and frantic fire-fighting at the end of fall semester. So I hope you have time to enjoy a little gaggle of quick hits and varia:

    Il rilievo tridimensionale si avvale di una vasta gamma di strumenti (sia hardware che software) e tecniche capaci di estrarre ed immagazzinare informazioni relative principalmente, ma non unicamente, a forma, dimensioni e valori cromatici di oggetti o porzioni di territorio. Quasi mai un unico strumento ed un unico software sono sufficienti ad esaurire le esigenze descrittive ed analitiche derivanti da un progetto di rilievo. Sempre più spesso, infatti, c’è la necessità di integrare, in un unico progetto, dati provenienti da più strumenti e metodiche di scansione.

    Demotisches Namenbuch: Suchliste

    Demotisches Namenbuch: Suchliste
    The Institute for Egyptology and Coptology of Ludwig Maximilians University Munich is pleased to announce the publication of “Demotisches Namenbuch: Suchliste” compiled by Dr. Birgit Jordan with the assistance of Sophia Specht, M.A.
    The search list allows looking up all components of demotic personal names included in the “Demotisches Namenbuch”. It is now possible, for instance, to check in which personal names a particular deity is mentioned. The list is not only a useful tool for the identification of personal names in damaged texts but also a good starting point for onomastic studies.
    Mit dieser Suchliste soll die Nutzung des Demotischen Namenbuchs (DN) ein wenig erleichtert werden. Einen großen Teil der Tipparbeit hat dankenswerterweise Frau Sophia Specht (LMU) übernommen.
    (1) Die Liste enthält alle Einträge des DN, auch die Varianten und relevante Verweise, und soll die Suche nach möglichst vielen Bestandteilen, incl. Artikeln (z. B. p# DET SG M [bestimmter Artikel Singular maskulin]) und Präpositionen, ermöglichen.
    (2) Die nach dem traditionellen demotistischen „Alphabet“ vorgenommene Sortierung ignoriert die Bindestriche und die Gleichheitszeichen zum Anschluss von Suffixen; das jeweils folgende Sortierkriterium ist einfach das nächste Zeichen mit Ausnahme von „.t“. Es scheint leider so zu sein, dass der Variationsreichtum eines Umschriftsystems sich umgekehrt proportional zur Zahl der tatsächlich aktiven Forscher auf dem fraglichen Gebiet verhält. Die Umschrift in dieser Liste jedenfalls orientiert sich weitgehend am DN und seinen Idiosynkrasien.
    (3) Mit einem * direkt am Eintrag bzw. einem „H“ vor der Seitenangabe des DN sind Lesungen gekennzeichnet, die das DN auf die Herausgeber der Primäreditionen zurückführt und denen die Autoren des DN nicht immer folgen.
    (4) Einige der Abschnitte des DN tragen Überschriften wie „Fragliches und Zerstörtes“. Einträge aus diesen Bereichen sind in der Suchliste mit einem „F“ vor der Seitenangabe markiert. Die von den Editoren des DN vergebenen „(?)“ und die gelegentlich auf Zeichenebene eingefügten hal- ben Klammern habe ich übernommen.
    (5) Die Übersetzungen folgen den Angaben des DN, außerdem den Hinweisen, die Günter Vitt- mann dankenswerterweise bei der Durchsicht der Liste beisteuerte. Bei den Einwort-Einträgen, die oft griechische und sonst fremdsprachige Einwort-Namen wiedergeben, habe ich auf die Um- schrift bzw. Übersetzung meist verzichtet.
    (6) Pfeilspitzen (>) zwischen den Einträgen geben die Verweise und die Varianten der Namen bzw. (<>) alternative Lesungen oder Umschreibungen gemäß DN wieder.
    (7) Ein „N“ vor der Seitenangabe verweist auf die am Ende der letzten Lieferung des DN zu- sammengefassten Korrekturen und Neulesungen sowie neue Einträge. Die Seitenangabe bezieht sich auf die Seiten des gedruckten DN, auf welchen die Korrekturen und Ergänzungen zu be- rücksichtigen wären.
    (8) Online-Publikationen bieten gegenüber gedruckten Werken den großen Vorteil, Änderungs- wünsche und Korrekturen rasch und vergleichsweise unaufwendig anbringen zu können. Die Liste enthält garantiert noch Fehler oder Unklarheiten, zu deren Meldung und Ausmerzung alle Nutzer hiermit aufgerufen seien.

    Teaching Tuesday (on a Wednesday): Trust the Process

    In past years I’ve blogged pretty regularly about my experiences teaching in History 101: Western Civilization in the University of North Dakota’s Scale-Up classroom. This is my fifth time teaching in this room on Tuesday nights to about 150 students per semester. I’m not sure whether or when I’ll be back teaching in this room in the future. Changes in our graduate program will likely limit the pool of graduate teaching assistants which are vital to making this room work at scale.

    For those unfamiliar with how a Scale-Up room works, it consists of 20, round, 9-student tables with three laptops each, large flatscreen monitors, and dry-erase boards. My class focuses on student writing with each table responsible for a section of a textbook chapter. Each table has an array of textbooks and can use the web for both primary sources and additional information. In a sense, my class is 15-20 separate seminars guided by myself and my graduate teaching assistants who primarily focus on issues of writing and organization as well as the mechanics of getting a group of nine students to work together.  

    Over the years, I’ve learned a few things by teaching in this classroom (despite a less than successful effort to get some of my experiences published a few years back). Here are three of them:

    1. Patience. At its core, my class is about writing. The course starts with three short paper which tables work together to design and students then submit as individuals. The final two-thirds of the class is dedicated to each group producing three, longer (2500-3000 word) chapters of a textbook. Each chapter gets comments on an outline, a rough draft, and even the provisional final draft which can be revised in limited ways at the end of the semester. Invariably the first chapter, typically dedicated to some aspect of Greek history, is rough. The outlines are rough, the rough draft is rough, and the final draft can be awkward and uneven. By the final chapter, some 9 weeks later, however, the outlines are better, the rough drafts are good, and a few of the final chapters are quite excellent.

    The regular, incremental improvement in student work is rarely acknowledged in conversations with that tables. In other words, they rarely “close the loop” explicitly by telling me what they’re doing better with a particular draft or outline, but their work does improve steadily over the course of the semester. This used to frustrate me because there has been so much emphasis on making learning explicit, but in this class, I wonder whether it is more telling that the students aren’t entirely conscious of how they’ve improved. Being patient, trusting the process, and not forcing things seems to make learning happen.

    2. Conversation. Last night, I had about 65 of the 90 students in attendance. It’s the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and many of my students head home early this week. While this is a bit annoying, UND doesn’t have a fall break and only has Thursday and Friday off for the holiday, so I’m inclined to be sympathetic. 

    One benefit of the smaller class and a general attitude of holiday good cheer is that I was able to float around the room and chat with students about their holiday plans, their semester, and the class. While this was not strictly speaking relevant to their task at hand, students seem to genuinely appreciate my interest. More importantly, at least from an institutional and pedagogical standpoint, this kind of interaction builds trust, encourages retention, and, on the classroom level, makes students more susceptible to encouragement, critique, and open conversation about the learning process.

    This reminded me that one of the key advantages of the Scale-Up room is that it allows for more informal interaction with students and if learning in the Scale-Up room is all about the process, then the process is grounded in a trust that comes from familiarity.

    3. Content and Freedom. My greatest discomfort in the Scale-Up room is that I basically allow my students to control the content from which they build their arguments. This means being tolerant of less than idea sources, questionable interpretations, and imaginative and unexpected points of emphasis. At first, I tried to control the sources of information that the students could mine for their arguments, but this is rather like hugging a wave. 

    As a result, I’ve gradually shifted my attention from controlling access to “good evidence,” but now need to step up my efforts at managing how students critically evaluate the vast quantity of data available on the web. For a 100-level history class focused on producing good arguments, this involves shifting emphasis from producing a walled garden or allowing uncritical free-range scavenging for information, to  structuring critical engagement with available sources of historical information. That’s a big task, and one that’ll have to wait until when and if I teach the class again.

    Origen, Commentary on Matthew, book 16 now online and in English

    A kind message informs me that David Gohl’s translation of the remaining books of Origen’s Commentary on Matthew (which I discussed here) has now reached book 16.  He has translated this, and uploaded it for comment to Academia.edu here.

    Excellent news!  Grab your copy while it’s hot!

    Archaeology of North Dakota Quarterly

    Yesterday, I visited the North Dakota Quarterly storerooms. We’re being evicted at the end of the calendar year (not, as we hoped, the end of the fiscal year), and we have about 23,000 back copies of NDQ stored there.

    If you don’t know why I’m blogging about NDQ then you should read this!

    IMG 1389

    These volumes represent a massive commitment of time, imagination, and energy at the Quarterly, and while we know that we can’t keep all of this massive cache of back issues, we simply have to keep some of it.


    IMG 1394

    What captured my attention is that we probably have as many as three complete runs of the Quarterly. This is not trivial since the Quarterly began in 1910 and copies of the “Inaugural Issue” are rare:

    IMG 1252

    They also have numerous copies of issues from the so-called “First Series“:

    IMG 1390 copy

    And a great stack of the 1956 volume which was the first issue of the “Second Series.” Because NDQ had just returned from a hiatus of over 20 years and the first issue of this series did not find its way into many university libraries. 

    IMG 1388

    What is causing me some anxiety is where will this massive collection of NDQ volumes go? On the one hand, the older volumes will make their way into UND’s university archive, but we would love to find a home for the more recent volumes as well which feature significant contributions to the study of Native Americans, Hemingway, and Thomas McGrath as well as innumerable little gems like John F. Kennedy’s address to University of North Dakota’s campus and an interesting reminder to the media to avoid becoming “sedentary professional people ready to accept any fantasy that may be ‘advanced’”.

    What can we do and what should we do with these back issues?

    November 4, 2016: Domaine de Restinclières

    I'm going to post photos and stories from my back log of memories from my family's trip to France this fall. It was such an adventure for a homebody like me and I was mostly too overwhelmed at the time to blog about my experiences.

    On November 4, my family and I went on a hike at the Domaine de Restinclières. The Domaine de Restinclières is a château and 200 hectares of gardens and forest around the source of the Lez and Lirou rivers north of Montpellier maintained by the Hérault Départment since 1992. It is leafy and semi-wild and has kilometers of trails to wander around on.

    Ruth took this photo of our band on a crumbly limestone slope above the Lez.


    Firefox Quantum

    I've been using Firefox 57.0, aka "Quantum", since the end of last week and have been loving it. It feels as fast as advertised and I haven't noticed any deterioration in rendering of pages.

    I've tended to use Chrome as my work browser and Firefox as my personal browser over the past 4+ years. My personal browser just got a big upgrade. The Mozilla Servo and Rust Language teams must be feeling pretty pleased and they deserve it. Congratulations!

    From my diary

    The leaves are falling, the dark days are beginning, the pre-Christmas rush at work is underway, and winter colds are starting to appear.  I’ve been unable to progress any of my projects.  Indeed I am only able to blog today because of a cold which has prevented me working, and, of course, from doing much else.  So there is little news.

    I have a new commission out there, for a translation of the Vita Compilata of St Nicholas of Myra.  I don’t know that it will be ready for Christmas, but we’ll see.  This is one of the early lives of the Saint, and probably dates to the 9-10th century, prior to the mass revision of Greek Lives undertaken by Simon Metaphrastes.

    These documents are not all that interesting historically, but they are the earliest form of the legends of St Nicholas.  It seems extraordinary to me, in a world filled with universities and Greek language courses, that the materials for a figure like Santa should be left to little old me to translate.  But so it is.

    I expect to get at least a couple of weeks off at Christmas, so I will be able to do more work on Eutychius then.

    A small pile of books is growing on the side here, of books to be chopped up and fed through the scanner.  They are all volumes which will be of more use in electronic form than in paper form.  Converting them takes relatively little time; but this I have not had.

    I’ve also been disposing of novels that I no longer feel any urge to reread.  My book collection is slimming down for the first time in years.  I read quite a lot of trashy fantasy/science fiction novels.  I have found that purchasing these on Kindle and reading them in the evening on my smartphone in the hotel works quite well.  It also reduces the amount of storage space.  There are quite a lot of kindle-only space operas, thankfully.  So I think that, if even I am doing it, probably there is a general shift going on, away from paper fiction.   That said, I find that I feel considerably less regard for a kindle book than I do for a volume in paper form.

    We often hear that stuff put online never goes away.  This is not actually true, however.  Even Archive.org do not preserve everything.  This weekend I discovered that an alumni magazine for York University had vanished, containing an article of considerable importance to me.  Fortunately I had kept a copy of the PDF; and I have today uploaded it to my own site.  It will be most interesting to see whether Google can find it there, and if so, how quickly.

    St Nicholas of Myra in the Greek Synaxarium – now online in English

    Christmas is coming, and, as it happens, I have a new translation for you.  This is another piece of the medieval St Nicholas of Myra material, all edited by G. Anrich in Hagios Nikolaos back in 1902.

    In the Greek orthodox church, various days are marked as saints’ days, and a short life of the saint is included in the church service for that day.  These materials for each saints’ day are included in a 12-volume collection known as the Menaion, or the Synaxarium.

    There are two versions of the Life of St Nicholas in the manuscripts, a longer one and a shorter one (itself in two versions).  Anrich printed them all as section VIII of his book.  These are translated below.

    These were translated by Fr Albert Iustinos.  This is the pen-name of a monk on Mount Athos.  I think that he has done a splendid job, and I am looking forward to a translation of the Vita Compilata (Anrich section IX) in due course.  Thank you very much!

    As ever, these are public domain.  Do whatever you like with them, personal, educational or commercial.

    Some thoughts on the American Schools of Oriental Research Annual Meeting

    I spent most of last week at the American Schools of Oriental Research annual meeting. For me, the conference is a series of meetings with various committees ranging from the program committee for the conference to the Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute‘s board of trustees gathering. In between, I usually have a chance to catch a paper or even an entire panel over the course of the three day conference.

    The meetings, panels, and papers never fail to stimulate my thinking and remind me why I got into the business of archaeology, digital publishing, and ancient history over the past two decades.

    Here are some quick thoughts:

    1. Digital Narratives and Archaeology. There were numerous opportunities to think about how the digital technology mediates archaeological knowledge. As I’ve intimated on this blog, I have a particularly intriguing collaborative project that is brewing which will incorporated 3D images, archaeological data, and conventional catalogue entries and interpretive narratives into a hybrid publication that explores the convergence of the paper-based codex and the dynamic world of linked data on the semantic web. The codex implies a certain unity and linearity of engagement while linked data protocols allow for nearly infinite opportunities to combine, deconstruct, and remix archaeological evidence on a highly granular scale. Balancing the work of archaeologists as interpreters of the past and as producers of reusable and empirical data has both practical and philosophical implications as Giorgio Buccellati has suggested in his recent book, A Critique of Archaeological Reason (2017).

    Comments at a series of meetings this past week also demonstrated that the convergence of media types – the newsletter, the blog, the webpage, the journal article, the book – has complicated the construction of communication strategies for various organizations. At one meeting, several folks went to great length to distinguish between a blog and a webpage emphasizing not only the functional difference, but also the difference in purpose. The webpage was more stable and, perhaps, persistent, and the blog was designed to encourage conversation. While this might be a useful editorial distinction, for the reader the line between a page and a blog is blurry at best. Moreover, the function of a static, traditional webpage in a world of search-engine optimization is bound to the need to produce new content and encourage linking simply to remain visible. In other words, the platform, content, narrative, and visibility (or even simple existence) are so deeply intertwined that even digitally defined genres have melted away into the granular world of the web.

    2. Roman Countryside. I was intrigued by Andrew McCarthy and colleagues paper on their rural site of Prastio-Mesorotsos in western Cyprus. Like many sites on the island, they have struggled to understand the absences of Roman period material particularly from the 2nd-4th centuries AD. They demonstrated using Aoristic analysis (of a sort) that there is reason to expect this material based on the chronological structure of their Hellenistic and Later Roman assemblages, but telltale forms remain elusive. I couldn’t help but think about Sue Alcock’s argument for Roman Greece, offered so many years ago in Graecia Capta, that suggested that under Roman rule settlement in Greece became more nucleated and this accounted for the relative invisibility of Roman material in the countryside. I also recalled David Pettegrew’s important contribution on the variable diagnosticity of material from the Late Roman, Roman, and Hellenistic periods. He argued that the visibility of certain periods has biased our reading of hidden landscapes by making periods with less diagnostic material – for example undecorated amphora sherds – comparatively less visible in the countryside. While it remains impossible to construct functional or highly nuanced arguments without artifacts, it does remind us that the absence of evidence – or the invisibility of evidence – is not the evidence for absence. McCarthy and his colleagues are making strides to reconcile the absence of evidence with larger patterns of settlement change on the island.

    3. Globalization and Cyprus. Jody Gordon’s paper looked at Roman Cyprus as an example of globalization that offered insights for understanding the world today. His paper elegantly brought together the works of contemporary theorists of globalization and ancient critiques of Cyprus while never straying too far from the ancient evidence on Cyprus. I’m usually predisposed to be skeptical of efforts to apply modern constructs like globalization to the ancient world, but I found Gordon’s paper particularly compelling both as a way to think about Cyprus during the Roman and Late Roman periods, as well as a way to use the study of antiquity to understand in more subtle ways contemporary challenges. Scholars have historically seen issues of cultural hybridity, precarity, and even the acceleration of time through the compression of space (a distinct inversion of David Harvey’s famous dictum of time-space compression) as distinctly modern (or even industrial) challenges. Gordon explores the possibility of recognizing similar challenges in the pre-modern world as a way to critique the idea that some groups are “left behind” by globalization and to inspire approaches to the past like the “archaeology of care” that challenge the linearity (and in some ways moralistic inevitability) of certain “historical” processes.

    4. Non-Places. The hotel was convenient and completely and utterly banal. Every room and every corridor looked like other corridors and rooms at other conferences in other hotels in other cities. What brought this home to me at the ASOR annual meeting is that participants frequently struggled to remember papers, conversations, and events from other meetings or struggled to place papers or events at a particular meeting.

    I’ve been thinking a good bit about memory lately. Over the last few years, I’ve struggled to remember things, names, people, and even ideas. The concept of memory has also been particularly significant in mass media with books like Neil Gaiman’s American Gods and the new Pixar movie Coco, focusing on memory and the act of remembering as crucial to the very existence of an individual. As the modern world becomes more and more populated with non-places that meet the demand for familiarity in a world driven by convenience, seamlessness, and need to accommodate the ever increasing speed of capital, technology, and life, the anxiety about memory makes sense. The past is racing toward us at a faster and faster pace and encroaching more and more on the fragile window of the present. An “Irish” pub, a chain Mexican restaurant, a faux New England bar, did little to create a sense of time or place at the meeting. By the time I left, my own memories of the conference had already begun to slip into the placelessness and timelessness of the modern past.

    Current Approaches to Collective Burials in the Late European Prehistory Proceedings of the XVII UISPP World Congress (1–7 September 2014, Burgos, Spain) Volume 14/Session A25b edited by Tiago Tomé, Marta Díaz-Zorita Bonilla, Ana Maria Silva, Claudia Cunha and Rui Boaventura. xii+128 pages; illustrated throughout in black & white. 374 2017. ISBN 9781784917227. Book contents pageDownload

    The present volume originated in session A25b (‘Current Approaches to Collective Burials in the Late European Prehistory’) of the XVII World Congress of the International Union of the Prehistoric and Protohistoric Sciences (UISPP), held in Burgos in September 2014.

    Collective burials are quite a common feature in Prehistoric Europe, with the gathering of multiple individuals in a shared burial place occurring in different types of burial structures (natural caves, megalithic structures, artificial caves, corbelled-roof tombs, pits, etc.). Such features are generally associated with communities along the agropastoralist transition and fully agricultural societies of the Neolithic and Chalcolithic.

    For a long time, human skeletal remains exhumed from collective burials were dismissed as valuable sources of information, their studies being limited mostly to morphological assessments and subsequent classification in predefined ‘races’. They currently represent a starting point for diversified, often interdisciplinary, research projects, allowing for a more accurate reconstruction of funerary practices, as well as of palaeobiological and environmental aspects, which are fundamental for the understanding of populations in the Late Prehistory of Europe and of the processes leading to the emergence of agricultural societies in this part of the world.

    The articles in this volume provide examples of different approaches currently being developed on Prehistoric collective burials of southern Europe, mostly focusing on case studies, but also including contributions of a more methodological scope.

    Imágenes de centauros en los vasos áticos de figuras negras y de figuras rojas Siglos VIII A.C. – IV A.C. by María Herranz. 298 pages; 15 graphs, 124 tables (all in colour). Spanish text with English summary.. 38 2017. ISBN 9781784916848. Book contents pageDownload
    The centaur, a hybrid being with the body of horse and a human head and torso, first appeared in the mountains of Thessaly. This was the Greek horse-breeding region and it seemed natural for the centaur to have originated there, in the heart of this exclusive heritage of the landed gentry. Centaurs belonged to the spheres of heroic mythology, with clear ties to the values of the aristocracy.

    This book is composed of a catalogue divided into nine chapters. Each chapter comprises catalogue entries for a number of black-figure and red-figure Attic vases. The division into chapters is based on the various types of centaurs and different conflicts, either among themselves or against a hero. In addition to the catalogue is a chapter on images and statistics. Each of these nine chapters corresponds to a section of catalogue entries and statistics, as the information refers to two examples in each section, one in black figures and another in red figures. The highlighted examples illustrate the variety of different vase types (amphorae, lekythoi, etc.) and their chronology (550-500 BC, 500-450 BC). The statistics are likewise divided into black and red figures, and various themes, such as the centaur Pholos and the banquet, or Herakles and Nessos. For each of these themes or groups of examples, a table is given showing the number of vases (amphorae, lekythoi, etc.) and their place in the chronology (550-500 BC, 500-450 BC, etc.).

    Macedonian lionesses: Herakles and lion jewelry in elite female dress (c. 325–275 BCE) Taken from Journal of Greek Archaeology Volume 2 2017 edited by John Bintliff (Ed. in Chief). Pages 231-251.Download
    By Alexis Q. Castor

    Lions, of all animal quarry, rank among the most daunting and dangerous prey for hunters. Heroes and rulers demonstrated their physical strength in lion hunts and depicted them in historical records and images as a way to affirm their authority. Lions and the iconic lion-slayer Herakles, who was important in Macedonia as the ancestor of the royal Argead clan, became especially prominent in Late Classical and Early Hellenistic Macedonian art.
    The Study of East Asian Art History in Europe: Some Observations on Its Early Stages Taken from Bridging Times and Spaces: Papers in Ancient Near Eastern, Mediterranean and Armenian Studies edited by Pavel S. Avetisyan and Yervand H. Grekyan. Pages 89-102.Download
    By Lothar Von Falkenhausen

    Reflections are offered on how East Asian art history was established as a field of study in European academia. Concentrating on Germany (especially Berlin), the early stages of this process from the late 19th century to the post-World War I period are traced and the main protagonists and institutions briefly characterized. The paper ends with a short polemic about the impending reorganization of the East Asian collections within the Berlin State Museums, which risks losing much of the hard-won intellectual gains made in more than one century of serious scholarship and institution-building.

    The folding cubit rod of Kha in Museo Egizio di Torino, S.8391 Taken from Proceedings of the XI International Congress of Egyptologists, Florence, Italy 23-30 August 2015. Pages 450-456.Download
    By Naoko Nishimoto

    Much may be inferred about item S.8391, a folding cubit rod that belonged to Kha (TT 8, 18th Dynasty), by analyzing the results of the measurement survey conducted in 2011 from the perspective of woodwork. When Schiaparelli discovered the rod, it was folded inside a leather bag with a strap. The extremely rare folding cubit rod was loved by Kha, who was the overseer of works in Deir el-Medina and its related sites, where it was in practical use. This rod folds in half with a simple bronze hinge at the center; there are absolutely no inscriptions. The carved tally marks are only rough divisions into palms and the digits, and compared with other rods, the cubit measure is somewhat long, so the rod’s precision was in doubt. However, a metrological argument concerning the differences in the values of the palms and digits is proposed based on the presumed manner in which the wooden rod was created and actually used. The rod’s total length is 527.6mm, not greatly different from that reported by Senigalliesi in 1961. The size of each measurement interval, which Senigalliesi did not report, suggests how the rod was made. The tally marks are fine white lines; the left-hand palm is 75mm long, which is the common measurement of one palm, subdivided into four digits that vary little in size. Taking this into account, it is unthinkable that the makers lacked the ability to make tally marks accurately. The variations of values were supposedly caused by the process of creating the hinge. The center interval, including the hinge, is especially small, at (36mm + 36mm =) 72mm. For example, if we assume a play of about 3mm, a commonly used value, the center interval would become 36mm + 36mm + 3mm = 75mm. The inclination of the lines and the variations in size indicate that tally marks were etched in the closed position. S.8391 can also be used as a half-cubit measure in a closed position, and the first palm on the left side can measure digits. Traces of trial and error in remaking the hinge were found. In this study, I discovered that the clever hinge that makes this cubit rod possible satisfies two contradictory requirements to realize this rare folding rod. The appearance of this folding cubit rod, with no inscriptions and purely functional design, shows that it took incalculable effort to make it a prized instrument for the owner.
    Mercenaries or refugees? The evidence from the inscriptions of Merenptah on the ‘Sea Peoples’ Taken from Journal of Greek Archaeology Volume 2, 2017 (John Bintliff (editor-in-chief), Archaeopress, 2017) by Konstantinos Kopanias. pp.119-134. Journal of Greek Archaeology . Download
    During the fifth regnal year of Merenptah (either 1208 BC or 1219 BC), king Merey of the Rebu/Lebu attacked Egypt, together with his archers and many northern warriors. These northerners were not affiliated with any of the existing minor or major kingdoms of the eastern Mediterranean, since they are only identified by obscure ethnonyms. Five inscriptions of Merenptah refer to these particular events, but they offer scarce historical information; a sixth one, inscribed on a wall of the Amun temple in Karnak, is the most elaborate one.5 Although the Karnak inscription has often been cited, most scholars usually focus on the parts referring to the ‘Sea Peoples’, which are often examined in isolation and out of their context. The aim of this paper is to re-examine the available evidence.

    Faience in seventh-century Greece: egyptianizing ‘bric a brac’ or a useful paradigm for relations with Egypt? Taken from Interpreting the Seventh Century BC edited by Xenia Charalambidou and Catherine Morgan. Pages 71-79.Download

    Egyptianizing objects found in seventh- and sixth-century contexts in east Greece and elsewhere are most often made of faience. There are many problems, both of dating and attribution. I would like to discuss one particular group of faience objects from seventh-century contexts, the small perfume vessels in double vase form (so-called Leopard Spot Group), and will make some comments on the parallel group of small lekythoi, pyxides and alabastra. These are not stray imports brought in on the whim of individuals for dedication or personal use, but the products of an intentionally established industry which was certain of its market, and whose products could be traded widely. These were highly valued objects acceptable both as dedications to the gods and as gifts for the grave. By examining the techniques and decorative motifs, strong links can be made with Egyptian craft traditions and in particular with the iconography of good luck signifiers. A complementary strand is the role of east Greece, in particular Rhodes, as an intermediary in the packaging and onward dispersal of oils. Around 650 BC, the appearance of these specific faience vessel types in east Greece and the west suggests that faience factories had been set up on the same model as for the terracotta aryballoi. It cannot be fortuitous that Egyptian models and techniques found such ready acceptance in the Greek world at this time.

    El Sur de la Península Ibérica y el Mediterráneo Occidental: relaciones culturales en la segunda mitad del II milenio a.C. by Juan Manuel Garrido Anguita. 580 pages; illustrated throughout with 181 plates in colour.

    In ancient times, the first communities, societies and civilizations in the Iberian peninsula, according to archaeological evidence, began to develop following a progressive local evolution tempered by the significance of outside contacts. In order to reconstruct our history, resorting to ancient poets, we strive to distinguish reality from myth in the pursuit of a bond of certainty between the data provided by historical and literary sources and the excavated remains. Greek epics, based on the Illiad and the Odyssey, are the basis for the first speculations that link societies all along the Mediterranean coast, from east to west, with a common thread. However, how many times have we been told about mythical places, such as cities of great splendour and unique cultural progress? Did the land which Plato called Atlantis and Adolf Schulten linked to Tartessos truly exist? These answers may never be revealed (they are not at the forefront of research interests nowadays); for the time being, they are lost into a mythical and legendary world. Nonetheless, they remain alive over time.

    Spanish description: En tiempos lejanos, ahora sepultadas bajo la caída de los años, comienzan a formarse las primeras comunidades, sociedades y civilizaciones que se irán desarrollando en la Península Ibérica, por una progresiva evolución local, sin descuidar la atención de los contactos foráneos previa contrastación arqueológica. Refugiándonos en figuras creadas por los antiguos poetas, tratamos de discernir entre lo que comúnmente se ha denominado mito-leyenda y lo real, buscando un vínculo de certeza entre los datos que revelan las fuentes literario-históricas y los vestigios que se desentierran de nuestra primera historia, aquella que tratamos de reconstruir. La épica occidental apoyada en los relatos homéricos de la Ilíada y la Odisea, son la base de las primeras conjeturas que con un hilo, unen a las sociedades que conviven en el Mar Mediterráneo desde Oriente hasta Occidente. Pero ¿cuántas veces hemos oído contar relatos sobre míticas ciudades de gran esplendor e inigualable progreso cultural? ¿Existió aquella tierra denominada por Platón “Atlántida” y que fue asociada por Adolf Schulten a Tartessos? Estas respuestas quizá nunca lleguen a desvelarse (tampoco están en la vanguardia de los intereses de la investigación), por ahora sólo están inmersas en un mundo mítico y legendario, pero es cierto que se mantienen vivas, nostálgicas, con el paso del tiempo.

    A Crowded Desert: early results from survey and excavation of nomadic sites in north-west Qatar (poster) Taken from Proceedings of the Seminar for Arabian Studies Volume 47 2017 edited by Julian Jansen van Rensburg, Harry Munt, and Janet Starkey. Pages 43-50.Download

    This paper presents the results and preliminary conclusions of the 2016 season of the Crowded Desert Project, which aimed to find out about nomadic occupation and its relations with settled peoples in the region. Activities included extensive and intensive surveys and excavations in the area delimited by the areas of Umm al-MāΜ and MulayΉa in the north-west desert of the Qatar peninsula. Conclusions so far complement and expand the ideas developed during the pilot season of the project in 2015, and also provide finer chronological detail and a wider coverage of the area of research than before. The distribution of glass, metal, and pottery recovered showed important chronological differences in the patterns of occupation of the landscape. The paper also presents observed differences in the spatial distribution of features, showing how cairns (presumably pre-Islamic tombs), Islamic burials and cemeteries, and mosques and places of prayer (sing. muΒallā, pl. muΒallayāt) are distributed with respect to the tents and spaces habitation found. Finally, this paper introduces the first stratigraphic and geoarchaeological assessments undertaken in the area. Stratigraphic sequences are hard to find, and often nothing remains of them around any preserved structures. In cases where some have been found, their interpretation is restricted by their poor state of preservation and the constraints imposed by small trenches. A geoarchaeological programme is being developed in the hope of overcoming these problems and providing environmental information that might be useful for the understanding of the history of the region.
    Auxiliaries and their forts: expression of identity? Taken from Roman Frontier Studies 2009 edited by Nick Hodgson, Paul Bidwell and Judith Schachtmann. Pages 229-235.Download
    By Julia Chorus

    Little is known about the origin of the pre-Flavian troops in the auxiliary forts in the Lower Rhine delta (The Netherlands). For the greater part this also applies to the transition phase just after the Batavian Revolt, in the early seventies AD. At that time the forts were all built in timber, so hardly any epigraphic evidence shows up during excavations. Can research on building techniques and their possible background fill a gap in the knowledge on the military occupation in the Rhine delta? When comparing the defences and internal buildings of the forts in the research area and also outside that region, the variety of building techniques is striking. Instead of environmental circumstances this must above all be due to the differences between the soldiers. Comparison with late Iron Age building techniques (fortifications, houses) shows some interesting relations between forts, soldiers, their possible recruitment area and building traditions. The ramparts of the forts, for instance, provide information on their builders and seem to show the origin of the builders/soldiers in the fort. They must have built their forts according to the tradition of their ancestors and meanwhile expressed their identity.

    The 18th annual meeting of the Symposium on Mediterranean Archaeology (SOMA) was held in Wrocław-Poland, 24th to 26th April 2014.

    Since prehistoric times the Mediterranean has acted as a stage for intense interactions between groups inhabiting regions that are now studied mainly within various sub-fields of ancient studies. In recent years, however, the development of research techniques and analytical models of archaeological evidence have identified similar historical paths that are similar, if not, in some cases, common to these disparate areas of the ancient world from West (Iberian peninsula) to East (Anatolia and Levant), from North (Europe, Black Sea Coast) to South (Maghreb and Egypt).

    The 18th SOMA provided a forum for presentations related to the above-mentioned topics, as well as general themes such as the role of the sea, trade, colonization, even piracy, using archaeological data collected within contexts associated with the Mediterranean Basin and the area referred to as the Ancient Near East, ranging chronologically from the Prehistoric to Medieval periods. This current volume contains 22 papers selected from the 90 presented.

    The Creation of the First (Divinatory) Dream and Enki(g) as the God of Ritual Wisdom Taken from Ash-sharq - Bulletin of the Ancient Near East: Archaeological, Historical and Societal Studies edited by Laura Battini. Pages 155-161.Download
    By Annette Zgoll

    A close reading of the Sumerian version of the Flood Myth shows the god Enki(g) as the creator of the first divinatory dream. Enki(g)’s wisdom is precisely to be understood in this particular way, as ritual wisdom. In addition, Enki(g)’s/Ea’s trick in order to disclose the secrets of the gods without breaking his oath becomes comprehensible: it uses a clever combination of two different types of oracular devices.

    This volume explores the relevance of time travel as a characteristic contemporary way to approach the past. If reality is defined as the sum of human experiences and social practices, all reality is partly virtual, and all experienced and practiced time travel is real. In that sense, time travel experiences are not necessarily purely imaginary. Time travel experiences and associated social practices have become ubiquitous and popular, increasingly replacing more knowledge-orientated and critical approaches to the past. Papers discuss the implications and problems associated with the ubiquity and popularity of time travelling and whether time travel is inherently conservative because of its escapist tendencies, or whether it might instead be considered as a fulfilment of the contemporary Experience or Dream Society. Whatever position one may take, time travel is a legitimate and timely object of study and critique because it represents a particularly significant way to bring the past back to life in the present.

    The Sunshade after the Old Kingdom – Female Attribute with Hathoric Connotation? Taken from Egypt 2015: Perspectives of Research by Mladen Tomorad and Joanna Popielska-Grzybowska. Pages 161-173.Download
    By Lubica Hudáková

    Abstract: The motif of a male sunshade bearer accompanying the tomb owner or his relatives is attested from the early 5th dynasty until the early Middle Kingdom, and in the related depictions the sunshade has a practical shielding function. The gradual abandonment of the motif coincides with the appearance of female sunshade bearers that start to be represented from the First Intermediate Period onwards. The context of the scenes in which these women appear, along with their iconography and associated inscriptions, indicate that the sunshade became a Hathoric attribute some time after the end of the Old Kingdom and fulfilled this function well into the 18th dynasty.

    The Peshdar district is part of the province of Sulaymaniyah in the Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq. It is situated directly on the border with Iran (Figure 1). The Peshdar Plain Project was inaugurated in 2015 and aims to uncover the ancient history of this understudied area with a focus on the 9th-7th centuries BC when the Neo-Assyrian Empire controlled the region.
    Continuity and Change in Etruscan Domestic Architecture by Paul M. Miller. xv+272 pages; illustrated throughout in black & white with 9 colour plates. Available both in print and Open Access.ISBN 9781784915810. Book contents pageDownload
    Etruscan architecture underwent various changes between the later Iron Age and the Archaic period (c. 800-500 BC), as seen in the evidence from several sites. These changes affected the design and style of domestic architecture as well as the use of raw materials and construction techniques. However, based on a supposed linear progression from inferior to superior building materials, explanations and interpretations often portray an architectural transition in Etruria from ‘prehistoric’ to ‘historic’ building types. This perspective has encouraged a rather deterministic, overly simplified and inequitable view of the causes of change in which the replacement of traditional materials with new ones is thought to have been the main factor.

    This book aims to reconsider the nature of architectural changes in this period by focussing on the building materials and techniques used in the construction of domestic structures. Through a process of identification and interpretation using comparative analysis and an approach based on the chaîne opératoire perspective, changes in building materials and techniques are examined, with special reference to four key sites: San Giovenale, Acquarossa, Poggio Civitate (Murlo) and Lago dell’Accesa. It is argued that changes occurred in neither a synchronous nor a linear way, but separately and at irregular intervals. In this monograph, they are interpreted as resulting mainly from multigenerational habitual changes, reflecting the relationship between human behaviour and the built and natural environments, rather than choices between old and new materials. Moreover, despite some innovations, certain traditional building techniques and their associated materials continued into the Archaic period, indicating that Etruscan domestic architecture did not undergo a complete transformation, as sometimes asserted or implied in other works. This study of building techniques and materials, while not rejecting the widely held view of a significant Etruscan architectural transition, argues for a more nuanced reading of the evidence and greater recognition of the nature of behavioural change during the period in question.

    L’arte rupestre dell’età dei metalli nella penisola italiana: localizzazione dei siti in rapporto al territorio, simbologie e possibilità interpretative edited by Renata Grifoni Cremonesi & Anna Maria Tosatti. 276 pages; illustrated throughout in colour and black & white. Italian text. Available both in print and Open Access.ISBN 9781784915575. Book contents pageDownload
    This volume presents the proceedings of the conference “L’arte rupestre dell’età dei metalli nella penisola italiana: localizzazione dei siti in rapporto al territorio, simbologie e possibilità interpretative” that took place in Pisa at the Cantiere delle Navi di Pisa under the aegis of the Soprintendenza Archeologica della Toscana and of the University of Pisa on 15th June 2015. The addressed issues were related to the Post-Pleistocene rock art along the Apennine ridge; in recent years more and more evidence has been identified, which is different from the magnificent evidence found in the Alps such as, for example, the well-known Monte Bego and Val Camonica. This evidence, despite various and peculiar features, can be all related to the iconographic field whose main expressions are anthropomorphic figures, weapons, daggers, halberds and several other symbols, all similarly stylised. A peculiarity of these manifestations is their location in small shelters inappropriate for habitation or in places suitable for supervising mountain and territory roads, bearing comparison to evidence from Western Mediterranean coastal areas. An interpretative possibility has emerged: these sites could have been not only ceremonial places, but also spaces linked to the socio-economic fields or perhaps to the power of communities that occupied these territories.

    Large Scale Rhodian Sculpture of Hellenistic and Roman Times Η ΜΕΓΑΛΗ ΡΟΔΙΑΚΗ ΠΛΑΣΤΙΚΗ ΤΩΝ ΕΛΛΗΝΙΣΤΙΚΩΝ ΚΑΙ ΡΩΜΑΪΚΩΝ ΧΡΟΝΩΝ by Kalliope Bairami. xviii+864 pages; 222 plates, 23 in colour.

    The Hellenistic society of the Rhodian metropolis, a naval aristocracy (Gabrielsen), dedicated bronze statues of their members in the sanctuaries and public buildings and used marble and -occasionally-lartios lithos to carve portrait-statues originally for funerary use and in a later period also for honorific purposes, figures of deities and decorative sculpture for the houses and the parks. The artists, local and itinerant, from Athens, the islands and the Asia Minor, established artistic workshops on Rhodes, some of them active for three centuries and for more than one generation. The impact of Rhodian art is evident on the islands of the Aegean and the cities of Asia Minor, due to the expansion of the Rhodian Peraia. Together with Pergamon, Rhodes emerges as a productive artistic centre of the Hellenistic era, creating statuary types and combining them with landscape elements. The radiance of its art is evident in the late Hellenistic period in Rome, the new capital of the world, where the Rhodian artists create mythological statuary groups set in grottoes.

    This volume presents the large-scale Rhodian sculpture of the Hellenistic and Roman period through the publication of sixty unpublished sculptures of life size or larger than life size, together with forty-five sculptures already published. The sculptures are grouped according to their statuary type (gods, mortals and portraits), while those unable to be firmly identified due to their fragmentary condition are grouped under the category ‘uncertain identification’. The presentation of the sculptures is further supplemented by a technical description and an analysis of stylistic characteristics according to chronological development. Excavation data, wherever available, are also provided.

    Prosopography of the Byzantine World

    Welcome to PBW 2016!

    If you are new to this project, you may like to look at our FAQ: you will find guidance on how to use and search the database.
    A full account of the sources studied, together with the names of the scholars responsible, will be found here; this also serves as an index of the coverage of the project, which is a prosopographical reading of Byzantine Sources, 1025-1180. In this new edition materials have been added and enhanced, principally for the 12th century; the most significant additions are from further work on William of Tyre and Nicetas Choniates, and substantial new materials from the Chronicle of Ibn al-Athir. Such an undertaking can never be complete, as new discoveries are constantly being made; while PBW should be examined for what it contains, it should never be assumed that what it does not contain does not exist.
    This edition is the work of Michael Jeffreys (Viaf). The redesign and updating of the site are by Elliott Hall (KDL) and Charlotte Roueché (Orcid); external links have been added by Roueché.
    The full bibliographic description is

        Mercantile 1.0a1

        The Python module of web mercator tile utilities that I named mercantile seems to be complete and so over the next few weeks I will shepherd a few 1.0 pre-releases and then a final 1.0.0. Any mercantile user who wants to help the cause can do this

        pip install -U --pre mercantile

        to get the new 1.0a1 release from PyPI and try it in new or existing projects. I was tempted by attrs yesterday, but resisted, and so the 1.0a1 release is just as stable and tested as 0.10 or 0.11, versions that my team uses the hell out of at work.

        I've come late to the Read the Docs party, but am pretty much all in now. Continuous documentation (as the RTD team puts it) seems to encourage users of my projects to contribute to documentation more than ever. Mercantile's docs are here: http://mercantile.readthedocs.io/en/latest/. They're rather basic and boring, though there is one ASCII diagram at http://mercantile.readthedocs.io/en/latest/quickstart.html that makes my colleague Damon Burgett happy. Damon is the author of Supermercado, which takes web mercator tile manipulation to the next level, and a ASCII graphics wizard.

        The mercantile project is a workhorse, but has also been one where I experimented and learned how to use tox, pytest, and how to publish wheels to PyPI from Travis-CI. It's uncomplicated by C extensions or industry standards and has been pretty fun to work on over the past few years.

        Open Access Journal: NeHeT: Revue numérique d'Égyptologie

        [First posted in AWOL 5 February 2015, updated 16 November 2017]

        NeHeT: Revue numérique d'Égyptologie
        ISSN: 2429-2702 
        NeHeT est une revue éditée conjointement par le Centre de Recherches Égyptologiques de la Sorbonne (Université Paris-Sorbonne – Paris IV ; équipe « Mondes Pharaoniques » de l’UMR 8167 Orient & Méditerranée) et le Centre de Recherches en Archéologie et Patrimoine de l’Université libre de Bruxelles. Elle est destinée à un lectorat constitué de chercheurs et d’érudits s’intéressant à l’histoire de l’Égypte et du Soudan, de la préhistoire à l’époque byzantine. Son format numérique, en libre accès, a été choisi afin de permettre une diffusion large et rapide des travaux égyptologiques. 

        La revue a deux livraisons annuelles qui peuvent être soit des recueils d’articles sur des sujets variés, soit des numéros thématiques - publications d’actes de colloques, de journées d’études ou dossiers portant sur une problématique prédéfinie. 

        Les éditeurs de la revue L. Bavay, N. Favry, Cl. Somaglino et P. Tallet

        Open Access Journal: Revue égyptologique

        Revue égyptologique
        ISSN: 2195-9323 
        Die Revue égyptologique wurde 1880 von den renommierten Ägyptologen Emil Brugsch, François Chabas und Eugène Revillout, die alle eine große Expertise in dem Bereich der hieroglyphischen Lesung und Grammatik mitbrachten, ins Leben gerufen. Die neue Zeitschrift sollte besonders der weiteren Entzifferung und Interpretation der Hieroglyphen, des Hieratischen, Demotischen und Koptischen gewidmet sein, aber auch für weitere Themen zum Alten Ägypten offen stehen. Besonders innovativ für die damalige Zeit war die Setzung der Hieroglyphen als Drucktypen anstatt diese per Hand in den Text einzufügen. 
        Die Revue égyptologique erschien bis 1914 und erfuhr während der Kriegsjahre eine Unterbrechung. 1919, 1920 und 1924 erschien dann eine Neue Serie unter der Herausgeberschaft von Alexandre Moret und Pierre Jouguet. Ab 1925 wurde sie, ebenso wie die Travaux relatifs à la philologie et à l'archéologie égyptiennes et assyriennes durch die Revue de l'Égypte ancienne abgelöst.

        dh+lib: where the digital humanities and librarianship meet

        RECOMMENDED: Computation in Conversation

        Shawn Averkamp (New York Public Library) gave a presentation, “Computation in Conversation,” at a Library of Congress event hosted by NDSR resident Charlotte Kostelic (@chuckkostelic). As part of the residency, the NDSR fellows each organize an educational event, and Averkamp discussed metadata enrichment of digital collections.

        From her slide notes:

        I want to talk today about some of the current work happening around collections as data and some of the challenges that are holding us back from a collections as data revolution, but I really want to focus on how we as data producers can build better relationships and start productive conversations around our own libraries and how being more inclusive about who we invite into our data design and publishing processes can help us generate more usable datasets and further creative and responsible data reuse by our patrons and staff alike.

        Averkamp’s talk will be of interest to those looking for examples of librarians implementing the IMLS-funded Collections As Data project.

        POST: The Ivory Tower Can’t Keep Ignoring Tech (NYTimes)

        Cathy O’Neil (mathbabe.org) published an opinion piece in the New York Times suggesting that academia should play a larger and more responsible role in educating lawmakers and lobbyists on the problems with influential algorithms. She argues that the issue of limited engagement of algorithmic ethics in academia stems from limited infrastructure in addition to there being “essentially no distinct field of academic study that takes seriously the responsibility of understanding and critiquing the role of technology — and specifically, the algorithms that are responsible for so many decisions — in our lives.”

        Scholars from a variety of disciplines responded on Twitter, with some pointing out that academics have questioned the ethics of algorithms in various forums over the last several years. For instance, Siva Vaidhyanathan (Center for Media and Citizenship at the University of Virginia) shared the Critical Algorithm Studies reading list, which serves as an essential bibliography on algorithmic ethics.

        RESOURCE: RDA Research Data Collections WG Recommendations

        The RDA Research Data Collections Working Group has published and seeks comment on “Recommendations on Research Data Collections.” From the abstract:

        Recent efforts of the Research Data Alliance have established a conceptual model for the management of research data that promotes the use of digital objects, transcending the traditional notion of files and decoupling questions of access and use from location and storage. In this context, the need for building aggregations or collections of such objects has become an essential element. However, contemporary work on object collections focuses on primarily describing such collections through metadata, whereas research data management practice requires not only to describe collections, but to make them actionable by automated processes to be able to cope with ever increasing amounts and volumes of data. To this effect, this recommendation provides a comprehensive model for actionable collections and a technical interface specification to enable client-server interaction. It also reports on first adoption and implementation efforts across communities and institutions and provides perspectives on the use of data types in connection with collection structures, highlighting pathways for possible future work.

        RESOURCE: Digital History & Argument White Paper

        The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media published a white paper produced from the Arguing with Digital History Workshop earlier this fall. The paper was written collaboratively by workshop participants and edited by Stephen Robertson Lincoln Mullen (both at George Mason University).

        From the introduction:

        This white paper aims to help bridge the argumentative practices of digital history and the broader historical profession. On the one hand, it aims to demonstrate to the wider historical discipline how digital history is already making arguments in different forms than analog scholarship. On the other hand, it aims to help digital historians weave the scholarship they produce into historiographical conversations in the discipline. The responsibility for integrating digital history with argumentation thus rests both with the digital historians who make implicit or explicit historical arguments and with the rest of the profession who must learn to recognize them.

        CFP: Access to Historical Records: Major Initiatives (NHPRC)

        The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) seeks preliminary grant proposals to support projects that enable public discovery and use to major historical records.

        All types of historical records are eligible, including documents, photographs, born-digital records, and analog audio and moving images. Projects may:

        • Digitize historical records collections, or related collections, held by a single institution and make them freely available online
        • Create new freely-available virtual collections drawn from historical records held by multiple institutions
        • Provide access to born-digital records
        • Create new tools and methods for users to access records

        The NHPRC welcomes collaborative projects, particularly for bringing together related records from multiple institutions. Projects that address significant needs in the field and result in replicable and scalable approaches will be more competitive. We also encourage organizations to actively engage the public in the work of the project.

        Preliminary proposals will be accepted until January 18, 2018.

        CFParticipation: NEH Digital Humanities Advancement Grants

        The NEH Office of Digital Humanities has opened submissions for the 2018 Digital Humanities Advancement Grants. Digital Humanities Advancement Grants may involve:

        • creating or enhancing experimental, computationally-based methods, techniques, or infrastructure that contribute to the humanities;

        Happy birthday, Statute of Marlborough!

        Earlier this month, we celebrated the 800th anniversary of the Forest Charter, Magna Carta’s little sibling. It inspired a new Tree Charter, with accompanying events ranging from bike rides to pole launches. Today, we commemorate the Statute of Marlborough. At 750 years old, issued on 19 November 1267, it’s one...
