The Perseids Project
The Perseids Project aims to support access to scholarship in Classics for students and members of the public at all levels of competence. We provide a suite of tools that foster language acquisition, facilitate working with documents, and encourage research.
The Perseids Platform is a free and open online environment for producing data-driven editions of ancient documents. The Platform allows users to collaborate on editing and publishing documentary materials from the ancient world.
Our aim with the Perseids Project is to support a wide range of publication types for the texts and data, from micro-publications to full-fledged digital editions. To develop our publications, we collaborate with students, scholars at other institutions, and researchers across disciplines.
Libraries and Tools
As part of our work we often write tools, libraries, and APIs. Since one of our goals with the Perseids Project is to make all of our data and code open, we release our programs as free software for anyone to use or modify.
