Old Excavation Photos Sought!

There is a great opportunity for older archaeology enthusiasts to have their photographs preserved in the Non-Professional Archaeological Photographs-project. The team is particularly interested in photographs taken by students and volunteers in excavations prior to 1980. If you have some of these photos, or if you know someone who does, please get in touch with NPAPH Project as soon as you can.

The official website has lots of details. You can also check out their Facebook page. The trailer below describes their vision.

Some archives are already online for viewing:

Dan P. Cole Photo Collection – Shechem and Gezer

Gordion Expedition Collection – the ancient Phrygian capital

Leo Boer Photograph Collection, 1953-1954 – travels of a student

Others cover Italy, The Netherlands, and Guatemala.
