TIMEA's text collection contains over 25,000 pages from travel guidebooks, museum catalogs, travelogues, and other works documenting travel in the Middle East, particularly Egypt in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. All materials are in the public domain. The texts are encoded in TEI-Lite to facilitate searching and analysis. In addition, place names that match names included in the NGA GEOnet Names Server (GNS) are automatically marked up and transformed into links to a list of related items in TIMEA's collections.
