*Mark Hedges and Tobias Blanke (King’s College London)*
*Linking and Querying Ancient Texts: A multi-database case study with
epigraphic corpora*


LaQuAT investigates technologies for providing integrated views across
heterogeneous ancient documentary text collections, including relational
databases with different schemas and an XML corpus. These structurally
diverse datasets overlap geographically, chronologically, and
prosopographically, and so a mechanism for querying an integrated set of
them is of considerable potential value to the researcher.

The seminar will be followed by wine and refreshments.
