XSTAR: XML System for Textual and Archaeological Research

"The XSTAR project is based at the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago. It is led by two University of Chicago faculty members: an archaeologist, David Schloen, and a linguist, Gene Gragg, both of whom have extensive experience in software development. Collaborators include researchers and computer specialists at the University of Chicago and elsewhere.The goal of this project is to create a sophisticated Internet-based research environment for specialists in textual and archaeological studies. In particular, XSTAR is intended for archaeologists, philologists, historians, and historical geographers who work with artifacts, documents, and geographical or environmental data. It will not only provide access to detailed, searchable data in each of these areas individually, but will also integrate these diverse lines of evidence as an aid to interdisciplinary research."
