|Gertrude Bell Project
"Gertrude Bell (1868-1926) ['s...] first love, however, was always for archaeology, and, as Honorary Director of Antiquities in Iraq, she established in Baghdad the Iraq Museum. [...] The University of Newcastle upon Tyne Library has undertaken a 4 year project to check and complete the transcription of the manuscripts, to recatalogue and digitise the photographs, and to build a WWW for the finished archive."
"In many ways, the history of Iraq is the history of all humanity. The Iraq Museum's huge collection tells the epic story of human civilization, from the earliest settlements to the rise and fall of vast empires. These artifacts, some of them more than 10,000 years old, show the development of everything from hunting and writing implements to mathematics, art, law, religion, and industry - and ultimately - humankind's best and worst impulses"
