An international team of archaeologists led by University of Cincinnati researchers recently discovered a Bronze Age warrior’s tomb in southwestern Greece filled with more than 1,400 objects: jewels, weapons and armor, as well as bronze, silver and gold vessels. The unusual find is celebrated in the New York Times.
In late 2012, the University of Cincinnati Libraries was awarded a Scholarly Communications and Information Technology Program planning grant from The Andrew W.

The project’s findings have now been published in a report titled “Building Expertise to Support Digital Scholarship: A Global Perspective.”
