The Hellespont Project: Integrating Arachne and Perseus

An international collaboration between Tuft's University and the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) to join together the digital holdings of Tuft's Perseus Digital Library and the DAI's Arachne into the largest collection of Greco-Roman materials online.

The German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and Tufts University propose to combine and expand the collections of two of the oldest and most established digital projects in Classical Studies--Arachne and Perseus--and thus create a single comprehensive digital library about the ancient world. The resulting collection will contain CIDOC-CRM metadata for more than 250,000 archaeological sites and objects, MODS/FRBR bibliographic records for editions of every major Greek and Latin author whose work survives either in the manuscript tradition or in substantial fragments, and TEI P5 compliant XML transcriptions for 20 million words of Greek and Latin primary sources, as well as for more than 50 million words of archaeological documentation, major lexica, commentaries, and encyclopedias. The project bridges gaps between the material and the textual record and between scholarship in German and English, opening up this content not only to the two partner sites but third-party development.
