Epigraphy Masterclass, University of Kent, 17-18 May 2017

Posted for Efrosyni Boutsikas (to whom queries should be addressed):

We are pleased to announce a  Research Seminar and free Epigraphy Masterclass by Dr Dan Dana from the Centre of Anthropology and History of the Ancient World (ANHIMA) of the French National Centre for Scientific Research. The event will be held at the Department of Classical and Archaeological Studies of the University of Kent, on 17-18 May 2017.

The Masterclass is aimed at training PG students on recording inscriptions, interpretation and analysis. It will give insights on techniques and methods applicable across the field of epigraphy.

Below are further details on both events.

17 May, 11:00 (DPeter Brown)
Research Seminar

Auxiliary soldiers recruited from Britain according to Roman military diplomas

18 May, 11:00 – 14:00 (CNE SR2)

Unit 1: Signatures of artisans in ancient Thrace

The analysis of several signatures of artisans in ancient Thrace, on various supports, is relevant for the diffusion of the epigraphic habit, but also meaningful if such documents are reinserted in the context of the circulation of persons, objects and techniques. Accordingly, we may have a glimpse of the activity and the mobility of artisans (both Greek and Thracian) in a space better known thanks to recent investigations.

Unit 2: Natives, Greeks and Romans : the case of a city from Thrace

The choice of an ancient Greek city from Thrace allows to use the considerable evidence of imperial times (mainly epigraphic and iconographic) in order to substitute the common and simple ‘ethnic’ registers or categories by more pertinent questions about epigraphic visibility, regional creations, and particularly processes of mutual adaptation

Everyone is welcome, but please email if you are interested in attending the Masterclass as spaces are limited.

Open Epigraphic Data Unconference, London, May 15, 2017

Open Epigraphic Data Unconference
10:00–17:00, May 15, 2017, Institute of Classical Studies

This one-day workshop, or “unconference,” brings together scholars, historians and data scientists with a shared interest in classical epigraphic data. The event involves no speakers or set programme of presentations, but rather a loose agenda, to be further refined in advance or on the day, which is to use, exploit, transform and “mash-up” with other sources the Open Data recently made available by the Epigraphic Database Heidelberg under a Creative Commons license. Both present and remote participants with programming and data-processing experience, and those with an interest in discussing and planning data manipulation and aggregation at a higher level, are welcomed.

Places at the event in London are limited; please contact <> if you would like to register to attend.

There will also be a Google Hangout opened on the day, for participants who are not able to attend in person. We hope this event will only be the beginning of a longer conversation and project to exploit and disseminate this invaluable epigraphic dataset.
