Discussion about Mediterranean anthropology.
Dear H-SAE members,
Those of you interested in anthropology of the Mediterranean during the Medieval may wish to start a discussion.
Recently the writing system of a Medieval manuscript was revealed to be proto-Romance: i.e. the ancestor to the modern Romance languages. In addition, it is written with a proto-Italic alphabet. It is the only known document of this kind and therefore has considerable linguistic and historic importance.
Feedback on Silent Race Film Database
A couple years ago my students and I built a database of silent race films (from 1909 to 1930). In fact, a number of you provided valuable assistance! You can find the database, as well as instructions on what to do with it, and background information, here: http://dhbasecamp.humanities.ucla.edu/afamfilm/.
