By Simon Mahony, Gabriel Bodard

This booklet explores the demanding situations and possibilities offered to Classical scholarship by means of electronic perform and assets. Drawing at the services of a group of students who use leading edge tools and applied sciences, it indicates that routinely rigorous scholarship is as imperative to electronic examine because it is to mainstream Classical experiences. The chapters during this edited assortment conceal many topics, together with textual content and knowledge markup, information administration, community research, pedagogical idea and the Social and Semantic net, illustrating the variety of tools that increase the various elements of the research of the traditional international. This quantity exemplifies the collaborative and interdisciplinary nature that's on the center of Classical reviews.

Superconductivity Research Developments

Superconductivity is a phenomenon happening in convinced fabrics at super low temperatures, characterised through precisely 0 electric resistance and the exclusion of the internal magnetic box (the Meissner effect). resistivity of a metal conductor decreases steadily because the temperature is diminished.

At the same time this facility could provide a platform for testing and experimenting with other digital approaches to site recording. One of the fundamental issues of archaeological site and finds recording, and not just confined to Silchester, is that it involves the double-handling of data, all records being written or drawn in the first instance, then subsequently digitized during and after the excavation season. Such an approach has obvious resource implications. Would it be possible to enter all the field and finds data without first hand-writing or drawing them?

My approach is also intentionally anecdotal in that I will rely on my experience using specific features of specific sites. It will also be clear that my conclusions reflect personal opinion. At times I will point out what seem to be obvious areas for improvement in the implementation of the resources I cite, but such criticism should be taken within the context of my opening observation. I take its corollary to be that the net effect of the various efforts pursuing digitization is unprecedented  American Council of Learned Societies, Our Cultural Commonwealth (New York: American Council of Learned Societies, 2006), p.

18 Digital Research in the Study of Classical Antiquity Thus far we have focused on the layer and its stratigraphic relationships without considering the spatial dimension. In a settlement, such as an extensive rural one, without complex stratigraphy, it may be possible to develop comprehensive period plans which derive closely from drawings made in the field. However, such an approach cannot be assured in an urban context, since individual periods, or their sub-phases, may be composed of very many individual layers, each perhaps with limited spatial extent, and the boundaries between periods may not necessarily be clearly observable in the field.
