Adrian is a fourth-year PhD student whose research is fuelled by a fascination with ancient documentary evidence. Having explored the multilingual epigraphic record from second and third century Histria on the Black Sea through the prism of sociolinguistic theory as part of his Mag.Phil. at the University of Vienna, he is now eager to pursue his journey into the tantalizing world of papyrology and epigraphy. This is complemented by a desire to help shape the rapidly evolving field of Digital Humanities by embarking on projects that are natively designed to leverage integrative technologies including source document markup guidelines such as EpiDoc. His current digital project focuses on the archive of manumission inscriptions preserved on the Polygonal Wall in Delphi. For the moment, the objective is to make as much of the wall available online as a deep-zoomable visualization. Further steps include mapping all of the inscriptions on the wall and linking them to PHI (Searchable Greek Inscriptions). A preliminary prototype already is online.
