Description

The Big Ancient Mediterranean (“BAM”) integrates GIS tools, network analysis, textual annotation, and data mining capabilities to explore and visualize ancient texts in new ways. The site’s simultaneous presentation of these tools is designed to allow a deeper “reading” of texts by providing students, teachers, researchers, and the general public with an open-access portal wherein they can interact with maps, visualizations, and linked data. BAM aims to further connect and develop the digital resources and rich landscape of linked data developed in the field of ancient studies. The first module within BAM is called Terra Biblica, which offers users a means to explore biblical and early Christian texts.
