I’m happy to say that normal service has been resumed!
This is just a quick blog post to apologize for the current appearance of the NT Gateway. It looks like someone has been experimenting with the site over at Logos and I’m in touch with them to find out what is happening as a matter of urgency. Hope to have the normal service resumed as soon as possible! Thanks for your patience and best wishes, Mark Goodacre
I was about to show one of my favourite maps in class the other day, of the Expansion of the Empire in the Age of Augustus, and the link here on the NT Gateway returned an error. So when I got back to my office, I went in search of the page at the Ancient World Mapping Centre and found that the entire site had been revamped, now using Word Press and with tons more maps and lots of updates. So here is the updated entry on my Maps page, with the new links:
At the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, this centre “exists to promote cartography and geographic information science as essential disciplines within the field of ancient studies”. Many useful, high resolution, well documented reproductions of maps from print resources and elsewhere. Ever growing resource, now revised and expanded utilizing a blog format (November 2012). See especially maps of the Expansion of the Empire in the Age of Augustus, Greece, the Aegean and Western Asia Minor and Roman Empire in AD 69.
I’m grateful to Phil Harland for letting me know about his fine new website:
Superb companion site for Phil Harland’s Associations in the Greco-Roman World. You an browse or search a large online database of inscriptions and papyri. Produced by Phil Harland in coordination also with John Kloppenborg and Richard Ascough.
27 NT papyri transcriptions on the website of the Birmingham (UK) based Institute for Textual Scholarship and Electronic Editing.
