Resource: ArchAtlas

Version 4 of ArchAtlas, the online atlas devoted to publishing visually-rich scholarly essays on archaeological questions has been released and can be found at either of the two following addresses:

A new 'Occasional papers' section has been added alongside the older visual essays in the journal. The menu system has been improved and a new "OpenAtlas" feature has been initiated, which utilises Google Maps' detailed satellite imagery to link essays and site information together. One of the latest sites added to the Open Atlas features is the Valley of the Kings.

If you click on the background image (a lovely satellite photograph of the Egyptian Nile Delta and the eastern Mediterranean) it will take you to the site's blogs where you can read about all the latest progress including latest journal entries and the above mentioned new features.
