Project Title: Annotation of places in the Chronicle of Galāwdewos
Awardees: Pietro Liuzzo, Solomon Gebreyes Beyene
Home Institutions: University of Hamburg
Project Outline: This project aims to annotate places in the Chronicle of Gälawdewos, an Ethiopian Chronicle of the
XVI century, and an important source for events involving the Ethiopian kingdom and muslim invasions of the horn of
Africa in the XVI century. Using the text as a test case, the project developed markup strategies for ethiopic texts in fidäl (the script of Ethiopian), within the digitization and encoding plan of the Beta maṣāḥǝft project and as the beginning of a planned gazetteer of ancient places in Ethiopia.
