Vetusta Monumenta: Ancient Monuments, A Digital Edition

Completion of an open access digital edition of Volume 3 of Vetusta Monumenta (Ancient Monuments), an 18th-century collection of engraved prints and essays published by the Society of Antiquaries of London from 1718 to 1906. (12 months)

This proposal seeks funding to support the completion and publication of a pioneering digital scholarly edition, a portion of which is already online at vetustamonumenta.org. Forty-four of the 169 prints that appeared before 1800 in the series Vetusta Monumenta remain to be completed. We are remediating these copperplate engravings, editing the original text that accompanied them, and making them accessible through scholarly commentary. This peer-reviewed scholarly edition has so far engaged more than 100 researchers in the task of reevaluating the history and significance of antiquarianism, the techniques and politics of preservation, and the visual and technical remediation of artifacts.
