In this presentation Tamborrino and Wendrich suggest that Europeana can enable cultural links and intersections across boundaries and cultures, and provide information for lost archaeological sites outside Europe. Set in the context of digital technologies for the humanities, the authors describe the links between the Nile and Europe, and the series of campaigns which have 'discovered' Egyptian monuments dating back to Napolean. A case study looks at the Nubian temples south of the Aswan dam, remains of which can today can be found in various museums around Europe, the US, Egypt and the Sudan. As well as the tangible heritage there is intangible heritage - with associations between Nubia and famous photographers and conservationists. An international campaign lead by UNESCO in from the 1960s when the Aswan dam was constructed lead to the involvement of large numbers of archaeologists from Europe and worldwide in recording monuments such as the temples at Philae, Gerf Hussein, Dendur and Abu Simbel. Various physical and digital archives are available. The authors proposed that Europeana could be instrumental in creating links and re-contextualising the digital content/ digital heritage of the Nile.
