NINO: Netherlands Institute for the Near East.

This is a place to be in order to study cuneiform tablets. It is not the most digital of places, hence the challenge to build a useful tool for the study of tablets is substantial.


During the stay of Cale Johnson (now Birmingham) we converted a corpus of 6000 tablets from Uruk into Text-Fabric.

Later, with Cale in Birmingham and with the help of the NINO students Alba de Ridder and Martijn Kokken we did an Old Babylonian letter corpus. Also with the spirited support of these three we started an Old Assyrian Corpus, which still awaits the finishing touches.
