The digitalEPIGRAPHY website

Jun 24, 2020

The website, digitalEPIGRAPHY was created in 2018 and is operated by Krisztián Vértes in association with The Epigraphic Survey and The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago (@theorientalinstitute).

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 to 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 is a work in progress that was created by a small team of enthusiastic people who feel deeply responsible for shaping the future of documenting ancient Egyptian monuments. The website was designed by Krisztián Vértes and created by the immense help of Groteszk Kreatív Társulat (@groteszkkreativtarsulat) and Júlia Schmied (@juli.schmied).

If you’d like to contribute to our topics, you can reach us personally at Chicago House between October 15th - April 15th (The Epigraphic Survey, Corniche el-Nil, Luxor, Egypt), through our site by commenting on any article or by following our Facebook or Instagram pages.
