The Archaeology Data Service

The Archaeology Data Service supports research, learning and teaching with freely available, high quality and dependable digital resources. It does this by preserving digital data in the long term, and by promoting and disseminating a broad range of data in archaeology. The ADS promotes good practice in the use of digital data in archaeology, it provides technical advice to the research community, and supports the deployment of digital technologies.

F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research

The mission of the W. F. Albright Institute of Archaeological Research is to develop and disseminate scholarly knowledge of the literature, history, and culture of the Near East, as well as the study of the development of civilization from prehistory to the early Islamic period.

The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR)

The American Center of Oriental Research (ACOR) promotes research and publication across disciplines with a special emphasis on archaeology in the region. ACOR’s main activities include a fellowship program for scholars, archaeological excavation and restoration projects, and other academic programs.

The Digital Library for International Research (DLIR)

The DLIR Archive was established as part of the Cooperative Digitization of International Research Materials (CDIRM) project. CDIRM utilized participating American overseas research centers’ (AORCs) connections to collaborate with foreign archives and special collections that hold unique and rare research materials.

The Federal archeology program

The Federal archeology program is a general term used to encompass archeological activities on public land, as well as archeological activities for federally financed, permitted, or licensed activities on nonfederal land. Included under this term are archeological interpretation programs, collections care, scientific investigations, activities related to the protection of archeological resources, and archeological public education and outreach efforts.

Arthur Evans Archive (Knossos excavations)   
The Arthur Evans archive consists of the archaeological records and papers of Sir Arthur Evans (Keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, 1884-1908), which he bequeathed to the Museum on his death in 1941.

Cambridge Library Collection – Archaeology   
It was the work of Winckelmann at Pompeii in the 1760s which first revealed the potential of systematic excavation to scholars and the wider public. Pioneering figures of the nineteenth century such as Schliemann, Layard and Petrie transformed archaeology from a search for ancient artifacts, by means as crude as using gunpowder to break into a tomb, to a science which drew from a wide range of disciplines – ancient languages and literature, geology, chemistry, social history – to increase our understanding of human life and society in the remote past.

The National Archeological Database   
a computerized communications network for the archeological and historic preservation community—was established to improve access to information on archeological activities nationwide. This internationally recognized resource is maintained through a cooperative agreement between NPS and the Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) at the University of Arkansas.

Louisiana Excavated Sites Database  
Excavated Sites: searchable database of sites at which Phase II testing and/or Phase III excavations have been conducted.

Database of excavations since 2000. It will not offer information on all sites being excavated, and certainly not on those excavated in the past, or never excavated. Each participating country is responsible for uploading the data it gathers: some countries records are more complete than others.

Culturally Affiliated Native American Inventories Database  
The Culturally Affiliated Native American Inventories Database is a transmission for public use of data from museums and Federal agencies that have NAGPRA compliance obligations. Many of the Native American human remains described here have been culturally affiliated as a result of consultation with tribes and Native Hawaiian organizations.

Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies [CAST]  
CAST is involved in a number of archaeological and historic preservation research efforts. Developments in informatics, geomatics and geophysics have lead to an exciting suite of new approaches and methods that can be used in the investigation, analysis and visualization of the past.

Comparative Archaeology Database [CADB]  
Comparative research in archaeology draw upon datasets from all parts of the world. These datasets document the material evidence of the human past and comprise the primary sources for archaeological research.

Art & Archaeology Technical Abstracts [AATA]   
AATA Online is a comprehensive database of over 138,000 abstracts of literature related to the preservation and conservation of material cultural heritage. AATA now includes selected subject-specific bibliographies produced as part of the Getty Conservation Institute’s own conservation and scientific research projects or as part of specific collaborative projects in which the Institute is involved.

The Levantine Ceramics Project (LCP)   
is an open, interactive website focused on ceramics produced in the Levant from the Neolithic era (c. 5500 B.C.E.) through the Ottoman period (c. 1920 C.E.). Here you can submit and find information—whether long published or newly discovered—about ceramic wares, shapes, specific vessels, scientific analyses, kiln sites, and chronology. The LCP makes it simple to access, share, use, and refine data, to link scholars and to foster collaborative research.
