About us

digitalEPIGRAPHY was created in 2018 and it is operated by Krisztián Vértes in association with The Epigraphic Survey and The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. Our site is envisioned as an educational hub for Egyptologists, artists, illustrators, designers and anybody who is interested in knowing more about digital documentation techniques applied on ancient Egyptian monuments. Our goal is to provide digital documentation solutions for our colleagues working in the field or at home, and to present up-to-date information about the latest methods, trends and tools utilized in digital epigraphy.

Since 2012, the Epigraphic Survey has been home to numerous comprehensive digital documentation efforts with outstanding results. Our website was partially brought to life to present these results. However, one of our main mission is to get the discussion going in this highly important segment of Egyptology, therefore we'd like to encourage our readers to exchange their views of digital documentation or documentation in general through the channels we provide here. digitalEPIGRAPHY was designed by Krisztián Vértes and created by the immense help of Groteszk Kreatív Társulat and Júlia Schmied.
