Fasti Online

"Between 1946 and 1987 the International Association for Classical Archaeology (AIAC) published the Fasti Archaeologici. It contained very useful summary notices of excavations throught the area of the Roman Empire. However, spiraling costs and publication delays combined to render it less and less useful. AIACs board of directors thus decided in 1998 to discontinue the publication and to seek a new way of recording and diffusing new results ... With the generous support of the Packard Humanities Institute (PHI) we are proposing a more in-depth coverage of current excavations, begun in Italy and now expanding to Albania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Malta, Morocco, Romania and Serbia. The site is a web-based GIS database that will contain a basic record sheet for each site excavated for any period in a given year ... The site as it currently stands is the result of a collaboration with, for Italy, the Ministero dei Beni Culturali and the Istituto Centrale per il Catalogo e la Documentazione, for Romania, with the Institutul de Memorie Culturala Bucuresti (CIMEC), for Bulgaria, with the Department of Archaeology, Sofia University St. Kliment Ohridski, for Malta with Heritage Malta and the Superintendency for Archaeology, for Macedonia with the Institute of Archaeology, University of Skopje. In future years we hope to further extend the scope of the site to any country that wishes to take part, although our priorities are currently in the Mediterranean area. The use of the database and help in setting up a project for a country will be provided by AIAC."
