  • Description Arachne is the central Object database of the German Archaeological Institute (DAI) and the Archaeological Institute of the University of Cologne. Arachne is intended to provide archaeologists and Classicists with a free internet research tool for quickly searching hundreds of thousands of records on objects and their attributes. This combines an ongoing process of digitizing traditional documentation with the production of new digital object and graphic data. Site provides access to an expanding collection of digitized books and photoarchival images relating to objects of Classical antiquity. In 2009, approximately 250,000 objects and 300 books were included. (Continuously updated)
