NEH Blog for Congressional Staff features Digital Epigraphy



Humanities Insights, the NEH blog for Congressional Staff, featured on March 18, 2014 the Digital Epigraphy and Archaeology project. Part of the project, specifically the Digital Epigraphy Toolbox, was previously funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and was recently completed and released for public use.

The article states that “Since its creation, the toolbox has been presented at national and international conferences, such as the 104th American Institute of Archaeology Annual Meeting and the 13th Congress of Greek and Latin Epigraphy hosted by Oxford University. In 2012 it placed second in an international competition for an eHumanities Digital Innovation Award; the competition was hosted by the University of Leipzig in Germany. The National Archives [UK] used the toolbox to digitize 13th-16th century artifacts in its collection. More recently, the DEA group teamed up with Cornell University and the Library of Congress to digitize historical documents written by President Lincoln, including the Gettysburg Address.”
