diss:kurs 2022: Crossing Boundaries – Modern Approaches to an Ancient Egyptian Papyrus Puzzle - Dr. Kathrin Gabler & Stephan Unter M.Sc., M.A.

In the ‘Crossing Boundaries’ Project, the researchers approach a large archive of ancient Egyptian papyri, contextualised and interdisciplinary. While Kathrin Gabler uses an Egyptological and philological perspective on the material, Stephan Unter accesses the papyri from a technical and informatics point of view, applying machine learning techniques to a fragmentary papyrus puzzle. Together, they preserve the past for the future, using modern methods and tools.
