A few items

Non-blog activities continue to keep me busy. Including:
  • Little by little, the digital publication Coins from Ilion (Troia) is coming along. This is very much a joint effort by all the people listed there. My goal is to be well-prepared for the upcoming study season, when I can look at the coins directly.
  • I'm in the proofs stage with "Forum Note: Legal threats to Cultural Exchange of Archaeological materials", co-authored with Glenn Schwartz, that will appear in the July American Journal of Archaeology. Should be done with it tomorrow.
  • Things seem to be moving along well with 'Diversity and Reuse of Digital Resources for Ancient Mediterranean Material Culture', which is coming out in G. Bodard and S. Mahony, eds., Digital Research in the Study of Classical Antiquity from Ashgate. There will be more editorial stages, I'm sure, but the writing is done.
  • Also working on "Ceramic Data from In-Field Use to Digital Publication" with Billur Tekk√∂k and John Wallrodt. Needs to be done next week.
  • And don't forget the CAA2009 paper... Perhaps more on that later.

OK, not all of this will be immediately available for free and in digital form, but that doesn't mean it's totally without merit.

Sebastian- Good luck on your effort of putting finds from Troy on the internet. If its possible to estimate the number of additional coins that will be "published" in this manner and how that compares with the number published in the 1961 book, it would be of interest.

Best regards,
