Welcome to the Pleiades Project Wiki
Pleiades is a joint project of the AWMC Ancient World Mapping Center, the Stoa Consortium for Electronic Publication in the Humanities and the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World. It brings together a global community of scholars, students and enthusiasts to expand and enhance continually the information originally assembled by the Classical Atlas Project (1988-2000) to support the publication of the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World (R.J.A. Talbert, ed., Princeton, 2000). Our name, "Pleiades" (the daughters of Atlas in Greek Mythology) reflects both this heritage and the forward-looking goal of collaborative diversification.
Initial startup funding for Pleiades was generously provided by the U.S. National Endowment for the Humanities with a two-year grant (2006-2008) through its Preservation and Access Research and Development program. Subsequent development and operations were underwritten in part by the institutional partners themselves and in part -- for prototyping of interoperability mechanisms -- by a one-year Transatlantic Digitization Collaboration Grant from the NEH and the U.K. Joint Information Systems Committee under the rubric "Concordia". From May 2010, Pleiades is funded by a three-year, Preservation and Access grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
