This e-journal, publishing salvage excavation reports, aims at creating a wide data base that will keep the archaeological research updated and open to all scholars around the world. The printed version of the journal (published since 1961, and available in English since 1982), served for years as a major reference in works concerning the archaeology of the Holy Land. We believe that the digital form of this journal will be even more widely refered to and will be more convinient thanks to easy searching abilities and technological advantages, such as interactive maps and internal links.
The availability of such a large-scale data base of salvage excavations on the web is the first of its kind in the archaeology of the Holy Land. The data - which is relevant to a wide range of scholars in various fields, such as archaeologists, Bible scholarts, egyptologists, historians and art historians – will finely be digitally catalogued with the option of conducting elaborate word searches according to sites, periods and topics, as well as by geographical searches according to regions and map references.
