AWMC and Pelagios

January 15, 2013 in API, Interest, Pleiades Project

AWMC is happy to formally join the Pelagios network. Pelagios is a networking site whereby linked data for the ancient world is accessible via the common denominator of Pleiades id numbers. These stable identifiers allow many different types of online data – geographic, epigraphic, archaeological, art historical, textual – and metadata to be aggregated into virtual networks linked through place names (and the aforementioned numbers). The potential of this networking is enormous and AWMC is pleased to join with other colleagues already participating in this initiative. Read more about the AWMC and Pelagios collaboration on the Pelagios blog. One may browse the AWMC information in Pelagios here.


New Functionality

June 15, 2012 in News, Site Information

Thanks to the outstanding work of ISAW, we are now using the innovative (and easy to use) Awld.js javascript library on our site. This allows us to easily link ancient world information to other projects and sources on the web (all without changing the way that links work in wordpress).

For instance, if we are discussing Troy all we need to do is link the term to Pleiades and the library takes care of the linkages. It will also do this for wikipedia links, so if we reference the Flavian dynasty it will give an informational popup.
