The Wisconsin Palmyrene Aramaic Inscription Project (update)

PALMYRA WATCH: Blog: Preserving The Words Of Ancient Palmyra Through Digital Humanities (Catherine Bonesho, Society for Classical Studies Blog). I noted this project a few years ago here. But this blog post gives a good, updated overview, with a detailed description of the cutting-edge RTI technology they are using. So cross-file under Technology Watch and Digitization.


For many other past posts on the site of Palmyra, its Aramaic language, its artifacts, and its tragic fate while in the hands of ISIS, start here and follow the links. And this post (and links) is also relevant to ancient Palmyra (but you have to follow the link there for details).
