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
Contains documents with instructions for how to use the archive, as well as documentation material from the creation of the archive. It also includes instructions for datamanagement for future projects on Tell el-Daba.

• PhysicalFeature_Befunde_S20
Contains documents on the archaeological evidence (‘archaeological objects’), arranged according to areas A-I to R-I, and with one folder containing documents on several areas. Documents include protocols and databases, drawings and maps, documentation of surveys, prospection and analysis.

• MobileObjects_Funde_E19
This folder contains documents about the finds (inventory books, find sheets, databases, tables, fotos, drawings, wall paintings, analysis).

• OtherDocuments_AndereDokumente_E73
This folder contains further documents (digital library, excavation logistics) and photo collections on various topics and photo collections which contain information on both, archaeological objects and finds.

info The Digitizing Early Farming Cultures (DEFC) collection includes data gathered within the identically named project that ran between 2014 and 2017 at the former Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) in close collaboration with the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities and Cultural Heritage (ACDH-CH) at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW).

The project focused on data about Neolithic sites and finds from Greece and Anatolia, most resulting from projects of the Aegean Anatolian Prehistoric Phenomena (AAPP) research group (at OREA). The aim of the project was to enable research across the whole region and to overcome the issue of fragmentation of knowledge through differing terminology, chronologies, and typologies whilst complying with standards of data interoperability and data sharing. To achieve this, an online Django-based database was created – the DEFC App. The DEFC collection in ARCHE contains data of the DEFC app (an SQL database dump, 3D models with provenance metadata, CIDOC CRM mappings, maps and chronological tables, the project thesaurus and the bibliography) as well as DEFC project documentation (workflow description and reports).

The SQL database includes data from the following publications (data entry in 2016 and 2017 by M. Brzakovic, Th. Rinner, D. Bochatz, Sh. Schilk):

Additionally, 3D models of 90 representative sherds from the Schachermeyr pottery collection were 3D digitised with a Breuckmann smart Scan. The 3D models and their metadata were linked to the database and integrated into the DEFC homepage using 3DHOP (see the publication list).

Creating the DEFC app, the following data standards and tools were used:
Django framework was used to create the database itself, source code available at https://github.com/acdh-oeaw/defc-app
The database has been mapped to the CIDOC CRM, and the SPARQL query was made available on the DEFC app homepage. The mapping, documentation and exported RDFs are available in this collection.
The thesaurus was mapped to SKOS and is available in this collection and at https://vocabs.acdh.oeaw.ac.at/defc_thesaurus
Geolocations of archaeological sites were linked to Geonames (http://www.geonames.org)
Bibliographic units were entered in a Zotero database. The bibliography is available in this collection and at https://www.zotero.org/defc-orea-oeaw
Chronological periods were entered into the PeriodO gazetteer of period definitions (DEFC Collection available at http://n2t.net/ark:/99152/p0qv6m8).

The Digitizing Early Farming Cultures (DEFC) project was a project of the first generation of the Austrian go! digital projects (ACDH 2014/22). It received additional funding from the EU infrastructure project ARIADNE (FP7-INFRASTRUCTURES-2012-1-313193).

info Paul Kretschmer (1866-1956), Professor für vergleichende Sprachwissenschaften an der Universität Wien, reiste zwischen 5. August und Ende Oktober 1901 auf die griechische Insel Lesbos um Dialektforschungen durchzuführen. Ausgestattet mit einem Phonographen der Vorgängerinstitution des heutigen Phonogrammarchivs erstellte er Tonaufnahmen griechischer Lieder, fertigte zahlreiche Fotografien an und führte Tagebuch. Neben 131 Fotografien finden sich mehrere Tagebücher dieser Reise in Kretschmers Nachlass an der Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek (ÖNB), die Tonaufnahmen werden im Phonogrammarchiv (PhA) der Österreichischen Akademie der Wissenschaften (ÖAW) verwahrt.

Im Zuge des Forschungsprojekts „Paul Kretschmer und seine Reise von Wien nach Lesbos (Griechenland) 1901. Kontextualisierung und Restudy.“, wurden sowohl Vorder- als auch Rückseiten der 131 Fotoaufnahmen im TIFF-Format digitalisiert und von 57 Tagebuchseiten, die mit den Fotografien oder Tonaufnahmen in Beziehung stehen, Scans im JPG-Format angefertigt. Aufbauend auf Kretschmers Tondokumenten entstanden am Phonogrammarchiv drei Videos mit Untertiteln im MKV-Format. Insgesamt umfasst diese Sammlung 262 Faksimiles der fotografischen Objekte, 57 Faksimiles ausgewählter Tagebuchseiten und drei Videos.

info The most wide-spread contemporary use of English throughout the world is that of English as a lingua franca (ELF), i.e. English used as a common means of communication among speakers from different first-language backgrounds (Seidlhofer 2011). Nevertheless, linguistic descriptions before the mid-2000s focused almost entirely on English as spoken and written by its native speakers. Starting in 2005, the VOICE project sought to redress the balance by compiling the first general corpus capturing spoken ELF interactions as they happen naturally in various contexts. VOICE was designed and compiled to make possible linguistic descriptions of this most common contemporary use of English by providing a corpus of spoken ELF interactions which has been freely accessible to linguistic researchers all over the world since 2009. The Vienna-Oxford International Corpus of English (VOICE) was initially created by Barbara Seidlhofer (founding director) and Angelika Breiteneder, Theresa Klimpfinger, Stefan Majewski, Marie-Luise Pitzl (project researchers) from 2005 to 2011 at the English Department at the University of Vienna. VOICE 1.0 Online was released in 2009, VOICE 1.0 XML in 2011. VOICE POS XML 2.0 was the first part-of-speech tagged version of VOICE and was based on the same data as VOICE 2.0 XML. Both VOICE 2.0 XML and VOICE 2.0 POS XML were released in 2013. Additional researchers centrally involved in the creation of VOICE 2.0 POS XML were Ruth Osimk-Teasdale, Michael Radeka and Nora Dorn. VOICE 2.0 XML and VOICE POS XML 2.0 included minor revisions with regard to previous versions. VOICE 3.0 XML and VOICE 3.0 Online are based on the same data as VOICE 1.0/2.0 and were created from spring 2020 to autumn 2021 in the VOICE CLARIAH project. VOICE 3.0 XML is a new, merged TEI-conform XML version of VOICE 2.0 XML and VOICE POS XML 2.0, which contains spoken mark-up as well as part-of-speech and lemma information in TEI-XML format. The members of the VOICE CLARIAH team who created VOICE 3.0 were: Marie-Luise Pitzl (PI), Daniel Schopper, Barbara Seidlhofer, Hans Christian Breuer, Ruth Osmik-Teasdale, Hannes Pirker, Stefanie Riegler, Omar Siam.

info Digital postcards of Friedrich Julius Bieber. The postcards were scanned, both from the front and the back with the color separation guide and gray scale.
The postcards of Friedrich Julius Bieber consist of postcards he sent to his family from various parts of Europe and Africa, as well as unsent postcards. Most were addressed to his wife Berta and their two sons, Friedrich and Otto. Friedrich Julius Bieber’s postcards are kept at the Austrian National Library. The postcards at the Austrian National Library are divided into two collections. One was donated by Otto Bieber and consists of 142 items, including 141 postcards sent when he traveled to Ethiopia in 1904, 1905 and 1909, and one unsent postcard (“Ansichtskarten”, Cod.Ser.n. 24552). The other was donated by the grandson of F. J. Bieber, Klaus Bieber, in 2020 and consists of 587 items, including 352 postcards sent from 1884 to 1947, and 237 postcards that were never sent (“Ansichtskarten”, Cod.Ser.n. 61631). Large parts of the collection are postcards from his journeys to Ethiopia in 1904, 1905 and 1909, and from Igls near Innsbruck (Tyrol, Austria) in 1917. It also includes postcards sent to Friedrich Julius Bieber by his relatives and friends. There is one postcard sent by his father to his mother in 1884, and there are those sent by his sons after his death, to friends of their father still connected to Africa.
F. J. Bieber’s short and concise messages on the postcards were written in German using Kurrentschrift, an old form of German-language handwriting, which was mainly used until the middle of the twentieth century in German-speaking areas. Most of the messages express concern about his family or report on his daily activities. The messages and designs on the picture postcards will show us Friedrich Julius Bieber’s personal characteristics, and his journeys. The collection gives us clues to understanding the society, customs, social trends, cultures and peoples of Europe and northeast Africa, especially Ethiopia, at the beginning of the twentieth century. The postcards are original historical materials for modern history and will help us to understand the people portrayed on these postcards.

info The ELLViA Corpus was compiled within the eponymous project `ELLViA - English in the Linguistic Landscape of Vienna, Austria´, which investigates written language use and language choice in Viennese public space from a sociolinguistic perspective. The ELLViA Corpus consists of photographic images that were taken in the streets of Vienna in 2015 (with some little post-hoc remedial fieldwork in early 2016), as well as of tables containing their sociolinguistic annotation. The photographs document all linguistic landscape (LL) items (i.e. ‘things with text on them’, such as signs, stickers, poles, windows, dispensers, hydrants, screws etc.) that were exhaustively searched and identified within 12 predefined and rigorously delimited survey areas (street sections) from 6 selected administrative districts in Vienna. In each of the 6 districts, 2 types of street were sampled for comparison: commercial and residential. The 12 survey areas (all of approx. 200m length) cover mostly one but on two occasions also more streets (once two, once four), viz. the building facades, sidewalks, and roadways.
Each photograph in the collection contains one or more LL item(s); and each LL item is recorded on one or more photographs (for reasons of ensuring sharp focus and completeness of visibility). In other words, some LL items were photographed multiple times (in part or as a whole), while some sets of identical LL items are represented by only a single photograph. The correspondence of items and photographs is thus NOT 1:1. Additional photographs show the street sections in their entirety or in parts, to document the context. After data collection on site was completed, all photos were checked for faces, license plates, and private doorbell tags showing names, and all respective information was blurred in a post-edit. These post-edited photographs are archived here.
For annotation and to relate each LL item to its respective photograph(s), there are two tables for each of the 12 street sections that make up the sample. One set of tables lists each LL item (with a unique identifier) for a given street section, and provides the unique ID number of the photograph(s) pertaining to each particular LL item (and to its environmental context). The tables also record the street, street number, and date of photography. Additional information comprises the coding assigned to each LL item in the process of sociolinguistic analysis. A second set of tables records all buildings along a particular street section covered, together with the ID number of the photographs documenting each, as well as a list of the establishments (shops, restaurants, etc.) and `street furniture´ (hydrants, traffic signs, bike stands etc.) in a particular building or in its immediate proximity. Two additional tables pertaining to all 12 street sections are also provided, which display the coding scheme applied in annotation (1) regarding the LL items and (2) regarding the buildings. This scheme is the same for all data.
