Review quote

The aim of this edited collection is to showcase the research possibilities inherent in the application of digital technology, notably electronic databases, to the study of Latin inscriptions. The editor, Francisca Feraudi-Gruenais, head researcher at the Heidelberg Epigraphic Database, is admirably positioned to undertake such a task, and she has invited contributions from scholars in Europe and North America who are using this technology to ask new and interesting questions of the epigraphic material.
