We invite applications for a 4-day training workshop on digital
text-markup for epigraphic and papyrological editing, to be held in the
Institute for Classical Studies, London. The workshop will be taught by
Gabriel Bodard (KCL), James Cowey (Heidelberg) and Charlotte Tupman
(KCL). There will be no charge for the teaching, but participants will
have to arrange their own travel and accommodation.

EpiDoc ( is a set of guidelines for using TEI XML
( for the encoding of inscriptions, papyri and other ancient
documentary texts. It has been used to publish digital projects
including the Inscriptions of Aphrodisias and Tripolitania, the US
Epigraphy Project, Vindolanda Tablets Online and Curse Tablets from
Roman Britain, Pandektis (inscriptions of Macedonia and Thrace), and the
Duke Databank of Documentary Papyri. The workshop will introduce
participants to the basics of XML and markup and give hands-on
experience of tagging textual features and object description in EpiDoc
as well as use of the tags-free Papyrological Editor (

No technical skills are required to apply, but a working knowledge of
Greek or Latin, epigraphy or papyrology and the Leiden Conventions will
be assumed. The workshop is open to participants of all levels, from
graduate students to professors or professionals.
