info Wienerisches DIGITARIUM is a digital collection of more than 300 transcribed full text issues of the “Wien[n]erisches Diarium”, a historical newspaper that was founded in Vienna in 1703 and is still published under the title “Wiener Zeitung”. The issues provided as facsimiles and in XML/TEI P5 including different layers of annotation are evenly distributed over the 18th century and offer a reliable basis for a wide range of research interests.
The collection was created within the project “Das Wien[n]erische Diarium: Digitaler Datenschatz für die geisteswissenschaftlichen Disziplinen“ (PI: Claudia Resch) which was funded by the “go!digital2.0” program of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and carried out at the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH-CH) from 1 March 2017 to 29 February 2020 (Project-Nr. GD 2016/16, ÖAW 0704).

info The Tell el-Daba Documentation Archive is a digital archive for resources from the Austrian long-term fieldwork project in Tell el-Daba, Egypt. The archive was created within the framework of the project `A Puzzle in 4D´ (Austrian Fund for Research, Technology & Development (DH 2014/12)), in which the documentation materials available at the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) at the Austrian Academy of Sceinces (ÖAW) were prepared for digital archiving. Further documentation is available at the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) in Cairo and at the ÖAI in Vienna. The archive forms the basis for the archiving of further documents, which will result from future projects.
The excavations in Tell el-Daba, Egypt, from 1966 to today (with a brief break due to the Arab-Israeli war of 1970-1975) were carried out by the ÖAI under the direction of Manfred Bietak and his successor Irene Forstner-Müller. Field investigations took place in nine different areas, which revealed a continuous stratigraphy from the early Middle Kingdom to the New Kingdom (around 1980/70 - 1410 BC).

The Tell el-Daba archive consists of four parts:
• AboutThisArchive_Archivinformation_E73
