The grant, which is a $286K award over 3 years, supports Professor Heringman in creating an open-access digital edition of the first three volumes of Vetusta Monumenta, a series of prints and essays published by the Society of Antiquaries of London from 1718 to 1806 (visit Vetusta Monumenta here). His co-director is Crystal Lake (MU English PhD 2008), who is an Associate Professor at Wright State University.
