Collection: Musée d'Art et d'Histoire, Geneva, Switzerland History


In 1938 the Musées d'Art et d'Histoire of Geneva acquired nearly a thousand cuneiform documents collected by the Assyriologist Alfred Boissier (1867-1945). This set was classified, studied and cataloged by Edmond Sollberger. His inventory, gradually updated by different curators in charge of the archaeological collections, was integrated into the computerized database of the institution by the Service of Scientific Inventory and Documentation of the MAH.

Through Professor Antoine Cavigneaux of the University of Geneva, a cooperation agreement was signed between the directorate of the MAH and the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative (CDLI). The data transfer from the museum to the CDLI was facilitated by Émilie Pagé-Perron, a graduate student at Geneva. Ludek Vacin of the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science, Berlin, was granted access to the collection kept in the MAH and he scanned the tablets in July and November 2011, in accordance with the procedures and methods described in the pages of the CDLI.

The Musées d'Art et d'Histoire of Geneva and the Cuneiform Digital Library Initiative are pleased to present the new results of the scanning missions in the overview of related artifacts accessible below.
