The Flagship Storytelling Application (FSA) is a web-based tool designed to allow users to create multimedia narratives on epigraphic content and share them on the web.
With the help of a friendly interface, users are able to write texts and include content in different format into their narratives. In particular, the FSA is designed so as to help authors with special interest in epigraphy and in ancient history or archaeology to get easy access to the main resources for multimedia content on the Ancient World. With the FSA we intend to create a tool that will ultimately enable users to include images and videos from popular hosts (such as YouTube or Europeana), excerpts from Ancient texts, maps locating ancient places and, especially, the vast collection of inscriptions from the EAGLE network.
The FSA is thus a useful resource to spread the knowledge about monuments and inscriptions in the collections of the EAGLE network, or to suggest unexplored paths through themes and objects. All the users of the EAGLE services, the members of the EAGLE Best Practices Network and the whole community of persons interested in cultural heritage and history, whether specialists or amateurs, are encouraged to unleash their creativity and experiment with the potential of this tool.
The EAGLE Storytelling App has been published on the WordPress site as an official plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/eagle-storytelling-application/) and it can now be easily downloaded and installed on any WP instance.
