Below the Surface - Archeologische vondsten Noord/Zuidlijn Amsterdam
Rivers in cities are unlikely archaeological sites. It is not often that a riverbed, let alone one in the middle of a city, is pumped dry and can be systematically examined. The excavations in the Amstel yielded a deluge of finds, some 700,000 in all: a vast array of objects, some broken, some whole, all jumbled together. Damrak and Rokin proved to be extremely rich sites on account of the waste that had been dumped in the river for centuries and the objects accidentally lost in the water. The enormous quantity, great variety and everyday nature of these material remains make them rare sources of urban history. The richly assorted collection covers a vast stretch of time, from long before the emergence of the city right up to the present day. The objects paint a multi-facetted picture of daily life in the city of Amsterdam. Every find is a frozen moment in time, connecting the past and the present. The picture they paint of their era is extremely detailed and yet entirely random due to the chance of objects or remains sinking down into the riverbed and being retrieved from there.

e-Pedius
Mobilna in spletna aplikacija e-Pedius, poimenovana po rimskem slikarju Quintusu Pediusu, podpira množično izvajanje pri sestavljanju fragmentov stenskih poslikav.


Fragmenti stenskih poslikav

Restavriranje stenskih poslikav iz fragmentov z arheoloških najdišč je namreč zaradi velikega števila fragmentov, njihovih poškodb in manjkajočih delov težavno in zahteva leta ročnega dela strokovnjakov. Institut »Jožef Stefan« in Zavod za varstvo kulturne dediščine Slovenije sta v preteklosti že razvila nagrajeno računalniško aplikacijo, ki omogoča digitalizacijo fragmentov in njihovo sestavljanje, vendar je ta na voljo le strokovnjakom, ki imajo dostop do fizičnih fragmentov.

Nova rešitev e-Pedius pa je dostopna vsem zainteresiranim uporabnikom tabličnih, prenosnih in namiznih računalnikov in tudi nestrokovnjakom omogoča sestavljanje fragmentov v nove postavitve, nadaljevanje sestavljanja obstoječih postavitev in ocenjevanje postavitev. Zasnovana je kot mobilna igra, pri kateri se točkuje prizadevnost uporabnikov, vodi lestvica najboljših in spodbuja sodelovanje med uporabniki.
