HESTIA uses digital technology in combination with close textual study to investigate the geographical concepts through which Herodotus’s Histories describe the conflict between Greeks and Persians. This short case study draws on the experience of HESTIA to consider three of the main themes addressed at the ESF strategic workshop in October 2010 (interdisciplinarity, repurposing of data and text vs non-text), the research scope afforded by the collabora- tion and some closing remarks towards building a research infrastructure.
