This project sought to contribute to the comprehension of the origins of Venice and its people through archaeology, ancient documents, and genetic genealogy. ArchEasy, a web-based management system for Venetian archaeologists was evaluated and promoted. A promotional website was established for uScript, a web-based application that will create a repository of manuscript transcriptions. One hundred Venetian DNA samples were collected in collaboration with the Genographic Project to contribute to the determination of the origins of the first inhabitants of Venice.
