I’m delighted to be taking part in a conference on the “Big Ancient Mediterranean” at the University of Iowa next week.  The goal of the conference is to help various digital projects dealing with the ancient Mediterranean – such as my own Inscriptions of Israel/Palestine – figure out how best to link the data in our projects and thus to leverage our individual contributions into something much more powerful and useful.  The program looks fantastic and I’m looking forward to participating and learning.

The conference will be tweeted at #BAM2016.  I hope to provide some reflections afterwards.
