The Assyriologist and the Computer: The “Archibab” Project
The “Archibab” project began six years ago in response to a call for proposals entitled, “Corpus and tools for research in the humanities” issued by the French National Research Agency. It covers Mesopotamian records from the Old Babylonian period, dating from the 20th –17th B.C.E., hence the acronym ARCHIBAB (Fr., “ARCHIves BAByloniennes;” Eng. “Babylonian archives”) by which the project is designated. I would like first to define the spirit that guided the development of this project; second, to give concrete examples of what we can ask of the Website created through this project; and finally to outline the developing prospects for the coming years.
