acdh:hasDescription
‘A puzzle in 4D’ is a project dealing with the general problem of integration of heterogeneous and incomplete digital and non-digital records of archaeological long-term excavations to prepare them for spatio-temporal analysis and long-term archiving based on national and international standards and open-access online publication for specialists and the general public.
As part of the project 'A Puzzle in 4D' a digital archive of the Austrian excavations at Tell el-Daba in Egypt has been created. Resources that are located at the Institute of Oriental and European Archaeology of the Austrian Academy of Sciences were processed. These resources come from excavations carried out between 1966 and 2009 and were both analogue and digital. Analogue resources have been digitised for the archive (field drawings, inventory books, convolute maps, plans ,protocols, photos), and digital resources have been ordered, consistently named and converted into durable file formats.
In this project, a workflow based on semantic technology has been created for the integration of metadata and data.

info The Tell el-Daba Documentation Archive is a digital archive for resources from the Austrian long-term fieldwork project in Tell el-Daba, Egypt. The archive was created within the framework of the project `A Puzzle in 4D´ (Austrian Fund for Research, Technology & Development (DH 2014/12)), in which the documentation materials available at the Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA) at the Austrian Academy of Sceinces (ÖAW) were prepared for digital archiving. Further documentation is available at the Austrian Archaeological Institute (ÖAI) in Cairo and at the ÖAI in Vienna. The archive forms the basis for the archiving of further documents, which will result from future projects.
The excavations in Tell el-Daba, Egypt, from 1966 to today (with a brief break due to the Arab-Israeli war of 1970-1975) were carried out by the ÖAI under the direction of Manfred Bietak and his successor Irene Forstner-Müller. Field investigations took place in nine different areas, which revealed a continuous stratigraphy from the early Middle Kingdom to the New Kingdom (around 1980/70 - 1410 BC).

The Tell el-Daba archive consists of four parts:
• AboutThisArchive_Archivinformation_E73
Contains documents with instructions for how to use the archive, as well as documentation material from the creation of the archive. It also includes instructions for datamanagement for future projects on Tell el-Daba.

• PhysicalFeature_Befunde_S20
Contains documents on the archaeological evidence (‘archaeological objects’), arranged according to areas A-I to R-I, and with one folder containing documents on several areas. Documents include protocols and databases, drawings and maps, documentation of surveys, prospection and analysis.

• MobileObjects_Funde_E19
This folder contains documents about the finds (inventory books, find sheets, databases, tables, fotos, drawings, wall paintings, analysis).

• OtherDocuments_AndereDokumente_E73
This folder contains further documents (digital library, excavation logistics) and photo collections on various topics and photo collections which contain information on both, archaeological objects and finds.
