Accessing Antiquity collects original essays on the application of computer technology to research in classical philology and archaeology, each essay discussing the history, present state, and future direction of a noteworthy classical database from the perspective of the pioneer(s) who developed it. The book's coverage ranges from the earliest attempts at creating machine-readable versions of classical texts to the widely distributed CD-ROM containing the entire corpus of ancient Greek literature.
A panoramic view of the remarkable transformation recently brought about in the study of antiquity, Accessing Antiquity offers historians of classical scholarship - and scholars who may be interested in developing a major computerized research tool - firsthand accounts of what it has been like to undertake such projects. It captures a period that has great interest for the technician and classical scholar of today as well as for the scholar and technological historian of tomorrow.
