The American School of Classical Studies at Athens
The American school of classical studies at Athens was founded at 1881 and was devoted in the research of Greek culture. The American school of classical studies is one of the greatest research and education organizations of the world.
This project contains the digitization of:
- Ioannis Gennadios collection which focuses in the history of modern Greece (it’s noteworthy to say that the content of this collection was gathered by I. Gennadios himself)
- Dragoumis’ archive
- Three photographic albums of the ASKS (American school of classical studies at Athens) from the early twenty’s. This archive contains photographs, negatives and glass plates of many dimensions
The most part of the project is the photographs taken in Ancient Korinthos excavation, excavation calendars and approximately 10.000 maps and designs of the area. The excavation lasted for a period of over 100 years.
The archive contained about 300.000 documents. Those documents went through extra documentation (OCR and metadata) in order to become user-friendly. Finally, four multimedia applications, themed by ancient Korinthos, were developed.
