Open Access Archaeology Repository (or a start at least…)

May 12, 2009

Last month, I posted a call for links to open access archaeology journals, books and conference proceedings on the web for a new repository at WikiArc. Thanks to those of you who answered, we now have links to a fair number of resources, although I’m sure the list is very far from definitive so please do keep the submissions coming, either by comment on this blog or by e-mail to the address on the WikiArc links page.

In an attempt to make this resource more useful, I spent this morning playing with Google’s Custom Search Beta, and have created a small custom search widget which searches the resources linked from WikiArc. The search box is near the top of the page on WikiArc. You can also search from the link below:

Please do let me know if you encounter any issues searching. I hope you find it in some way useful

    I’m putting together a list of open access resources for archaeologists, focusing on pottery, and came across your wiki. It’s a great idea. Will add a link to my list.

    I noticed that you mentioned the MOLAS handbook. This is available online as a pdf at

    Will send in the pottery links when I’ve done a bit more work.

    regards, Maggie

    Hi Maggie,

    Thanks very much for that and the promise of a link!
    I shall add the MoLAS handbook right now.

    Thanks again,

    Matt

    Here is a link to “Hawaiian Archaeology,” the journal of the Society for Hawaiian Archaeology. Recent issues are available online.

    Thanks Carl, I had a couple of difficulties with the WikiArc site last week, but I’ve added that link now.
