The aim of the "Digital Tabula Imperii Byzantini (DIGTIB)" is to create an online alphabetical gazetteer based on all published TIB volumes (starting with TIB 1) by extracting the indices of places and by listing the specific pages of documented toponyms within the respective volumes.

Then we see why it had such a strategically valuable location. After that we visit the city itself in the 6th century from the Great Palace to the streets.
The project aims to make digital objects accessible online through Europeana Collections. During the project photos, video and audio content, as well as 3D surveys and reconstructions about Byzantine history and culture will be digitised.

In addition, the digitised data will enhance Europeana’s artistic content by adding to the Byzantine art and archaeology material already available on the platform.
