The Digital Thebes Project

From the website:

The project: the Digital Thebes project was initiated in 1998 to address the complexity of the archaeological record as it emerges within the contemporary city of Thebes through excavations (1900s- current), and formed the basis of my doctoral thesis. Harnessing the potential of Geographic Information Systems and based on meticulous data capture (from analog to digital), the project has produced an interactive map of Thebes showing published archaeological sites dating from the Early Bronze Age through the Late Bronze Age (3000-1100 BCE).

Status (as of 2019): digital work associated with this project is complete.

Skills required: N/A.

Internship type: N/A.

Funding: White-Levy doctoral scholarship, University of Cambridge; McIntire Department of Art, University of Virginia (additional digitizing).
