The Ashmolean Latin Inscriptions Project is very pleased to announce two pieces of good news:
Firstly, we have a new member of staff: Dr Hannah Cornwell, recently returned from the British School at Rome, will join our joint Warwick-Oxford team as a Research Fellow. She will be responsible for preparing our Epidoc catalogue and producing digital media. An accomplished Roman historian and Research Assistant for RIB (Roman Inscriptions of Britain), Dr Cornwell has many strings to her bow, and we look forward to welcoming her to AshLI in September 2014.
Secondly, we have just made an agreement with EAGLE (Europeana Network of Ancient Greek and Latin Epigraphy) to become an affiliated partner. EAGLE is a project to collate the major ancient epigraphic collections in Europe into an integrated online repository, freely accessible to all. We’ll be in good company, alongside projects from Greece, Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Austria, and a fellow AHRC-funded project based in Oxford, The Last Statues of Antiquity. All of the Ashmolean Latin inscriptions which appear in our catalogue, as well as accompanying information, should be searchable in EAGLE by autumn 2016, and users will be able to benefit from their online tools and links to relevant inscriptions in other affiliated collections.
