Announcing the new Painted Hieroglyphs and Visual Documentation databases

Dec 16, 2020

This is it! We have something to show you, and we'd like to ask you to be our research partners in developing digitalEPIGRAPHY's first databases. Our brand-new collections for Painted Hieroglyphs and Visual Documentation are here!

In the past few months, we've been busy creating something that has been a dream of mine for many years. Working with ancient Egyptian artifacts, wall scenes, fragments, and countless other material, I often find myself needing access to a broader context, a similar image, or an innovative solution in order to put into perspective what I am occupied with. Whenever this happens, research begins.

With our brand-new collections, digitalEPIGRAPHY would like to test the water to find out how we can support your investigations. What we've been working on for some time now is not one but two visual databases, directly accessible and searchable through the website, implemented within the Complementary Material section.

Our new collections are still forming. They have been forming steadily in the past few months and have now reached a point to be presented to you, dear Reader. We would like to invite you to look at what we've created and be part of their future development. You'll be our beta testers, if I may say so.

If you're finding inconsistencies with the presentation or have any remarks and suggestions, don't hesitate to reach us here in the comments or at Have fun exploring!
