Reception of Antiquity in a Semantic Network: Digital Books, Images and Objects

The aim of the project financed by the Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) is the reconstruction and online publication of those prints, which appeared between 1500 and 1900 as a result of the debates on the excavations and findings of antique cultures in the Mediterranean. The project partners have excellent and complementary collections, which not only reflect an essential part of the reception of Antiquity of this epoch but furthermore document the history of Archaeology and Egyptology as such. The work began in September 2009.
