Exeter Lecturer in Ancient History wins AHRC grant
Congratulations to Professor Andrew Meadows, Lecturer in Ancient History, who has won an Arts and Humanities Research Council grant for the project ‘OPAL: the Oxford-Paris Alexander Project – transnational perspectives in a digital age.’
The OPAL project, a collaboration between the University of Oxford and the Bibliothèque nationale de France, focuses on the coinage of Alexander the Great. It seeks to place the collections of this coinage held by both institutions online in a Linked Open Data framework. The OPAL project is designed also to serve as a case study for the role that a digital collection may play in the construction of a virtual, transnational presentation of transnational heritage.
