The Encyclopaedia of the Hellenic World (EHW) (http://www.ehw.gr) is an original electronic project aiming at collecting, recording, documenting, presenting and promoting the historical data that testify to the presence of Hellenic culture throughout time and space.
The EHW includes entries that concern geographical-cultural areas lying beyond the borders of the modern Greek state. In particular, the EHW consists of three volumes: Volume I-Asia Minor, Volume II-The Black Sea, and Volume III-Constantinople. The encyclopedia's entries are divided into four main categories: a) geographical terms, b) persons, c) events, and d) general entries.
The electronic format of the EHW enables it to utilize new digital technologies regarding the design of practical methods of integration, structuring and management of a considerable volume of textual and audiovisual material. The fact that the EHW is available for free via the Internet, makes it accessible to a larger, wider and more varied audience than the one of a printed version, since the World Wide Web is today one of the main means of education, communication, information and entertainment.
