The project „Heyne Digital―, funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), explores the origins of archaeology as an academic discipline in the 18th century. The focal point is Christian Gottlob Heyne‘s eminent lecture „Über die Kunst der Antike― (About the Art in Antiquity), which he gave at the Georg-August-University in Göttingen, Germany. Already in his lifetime Heyne‘s lecture was regarded as a crucial step towards the establishment of archaeology as a systematic and structured academic discipline. Heyne did not leave any notes of his lecture, thus the lecture can only be reconstructed by his students‘ notes. Göttingen Institute of Archaeology and Göttingen State and University Library will research the lecture in a close collaboration and make it accessible as a scholarly digital edition with various features. In this paper we will present the requirements and specifications researchers raised for this scholarly digital edition and discuss the challenges as well as possible solutions
