📣📣 EMKP is delighted to share the EXCELLENT NEWS that the first digital documentary collection produced by an EMKP funded project has just been released. 🎉🎉
The outcomes generated by the Project “Documenting the Instrument and Instrument-making of #Angkuoch, #Cambodian Mouth Harp” have now been released under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0 license and can be consulted and downloaded freely.
The data is complemented by a guide to the dataset explaining the different formats, sizes, and content of the assets, and a metadata spreadsheet with all the metadata information collated following the Material Culture Ethnography Metadata Schema (MCEMS). https://www.emkp.org/completed-projects/
This project is particularly special for EMKP since, among other socio-cultural outcomes, it allowed the identification of community member Mong Koeuy as the likely maker of a mouth harp https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/A_As1966-11-5 that was donated to the @britishmuseum without attribution in 1966.
The documentation about the identification process together with the complete set of assets generated by the project team can now be freely accessed and downloaded from the Project repository on Figshare: https://drs.britishmuseum.org/projects/Documenting_the_Instrument_and_Instrument-making_of_Angkuoch_Cambodian_Mouth_Harp/80576
We hope you enjoy consulting the materials as much as we did!😊😊
