Join us for the third joint event between HS Academy and the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPI CH). Save the date for December 12th, 2023, at 3 pm (CET), as we delve into the JPI CH-funded project ARCH (Ancient Coinage as Related Cultural Heritage).

ARCH, a collaboration between CSAD at the University of Oxford, the Bibliothèque nationale de France (BnF) in Paris, and the Department of Archaeology at the University of Valencia, investigates curation, archiving, and preservation of the monetary heritage of the pre-Roman world. The project aims to establish an online portal for Greek coinage, offering a comprehensive view of coin types from the 7th to the 1st century BC.

At its core, ARCH harnesses the power of Linked Open Data technology, offering a dynamic and interconnected platform that facilitates the in-depth exploration and preservation of ancient coins. This technology serves as a cornerstone, enabling access to a vast array of data and enhancing the overall depth of research in the field.
The project introduces a Unified Portal, a singular gateway that connects diverse online typological resources. This portal provides a broad overview of Greek numismatics, remodelling the way researchers and enthusiasts engage with and comprehend various coin types.

Integral to ARCH’s methodology is the adoption of the Knowledge Organisation System. This system serves as the structural backbone of the project’s portal, ensuring categorisation and access to information. It represents an innovative approach to organising and presenting data in the realm of ancient coinage, enhancing the overall accessibility and usability of the platform.

The project will be presented by Leading Investigators:
• Dr. Frédérique Duyrat (Bibliothèque nationale de France)
• Prof. Andrew Meadows (Oxford University)
• Prof. Pere Pau Ripollès (Universitat de València)

This webinar promises a deep dive into the research of ARCH, unveiling its journey in establishing a centralised access point for diverse audiences. Learn how this approach is not only reshaping the understanding of Greek coinage but also creating possibilities for broader applications across geographical areas.
