Abstract

Venetian law requires an archaeologist to report all objects found during municipal excavations. We designed a system to help analyze evidence from those reports. Manuscript transcriptions made by scholars at the Venice State Archive are not archived. We developed a website to promote U-Script, a manuscript transcription and search tool. Our historical data visualization system demonstrates the significance of historical evidence. Finally, we collaborated with the National Geographic-IBM Genographic Project to investigate the origins of Venetians by gathering DNA samples.
