A first action by the consortium was a mission to the Carthage Archives undertaken by Sophie Hachou, of the Ecole de Chartes, undertaken in September and October 2017 and financed by the Council for American Overseas Research Centres (CAORC). Working together with colleagues of the INP they catalogued all the archives present in the Bardo Museum, making priorities for digitalization clear, so that their addition to NAHAN can take place as soon as the platform is ready.

A Database of Archival Materials related to the Heritage and Archaeology of North Africa

NAHAN is a network of institutions holding archival materials on North African monuments. We are creating an open-access platform on which to publish these materials, which should be available by Summer 2018.  We are seeking funds, both as individual institutions and collectively, to enable institutions to catalogue and digitize their archival holdingst o the common platform.
