Maps

Here is the Google Earth Map of the Near East, with Archaeological Sites. This Google Earth map is produced automatically from the ANE.kml file (downloadable here) made available by Olof Pedersén (Uppsala Universitet).

HERE IS A PORTFOLIO with a set of historical geographical maps linked to the project of the forthcoming Atlas Historique du Proche-Orient Ancien coordinated by Martin Sauvage (CNRS, Nanterre). Direct links to these maps are available in the various encyclopedic articles of cdli:wiki.

Site Descriptions

Here is a list of sites in the Ancient Near East with their ancient and modern names.
The purpose of this list is to reach an agreement on the naming of archaeological sites for the purpose of identification, and display of CDLI data in Google Earth. It also gives the list of sites that have produced texts and the possibility to search them directly in CDLI according to their provenience. (Lists can be sorted alphabetically through a click on head of column; selective search through the filter window)
