On November 7 and 8, the Project Andvari team got together with an excellent group of workshop participants from around the country (and the world) to help lay out the foundation of the proposed iconographic controlled vocabulary to be implemented along with the Andvari pilot platform. This much-needed resource will help the project team, contributing institutions, and scholars the world over by providing a standardized classification system for the iconographic content of the early medieval north, thereby supporting scholarship and promoting innovative connections between previously separated objects and collections. The workshop was very successful and could not of happened without the support and contributions of all those in attendance. So, a very big thank you to Worthy Martin, Daniel Pitti, Karen Overby, Daniel Pett, Marcus Smith, Youngok Choi, Christopher Roberts, Danielle Joyner, Kevin Gunn, and Sam Russell for all of your hard work! Stay tuned for more updates on the development of the Project Andvari controlled vocabulary and for updates on the forthcoming pilot platform.
