Web sites about archaeology frequently consist mostly of ads attempting to entice potential volunteer diggers; but some are more substantive. One particularly good resource is the website of The Megiddo Expedition, which excavates at Megiddo, the site of one of the major cities of the kingdom of Israel and the future site of Armageddon.

Another interesting site (both archaeological and web) is that of Çatalhöyük in Turkey. The fact that it is prehistoric (Neolithic) allows perhaps too much scope for imagination in interpreting some of the odder finds, but you’ll find a wide range of opinion on this site, from scholarly to New Age.

An impressive archive of archaeological sites in Turkey can be found at tayproject.org, “the first archaeological site inventory on the net.” Happy surfing!
