Developed as part of a collaboration between the United States Institute of Peace, the University of Southern California, and the Cotsen Institute at UCLA, the West Bank and East Jerusalem Searchable Map site is a worthy find. This collection includes lists of archaeological sites that have been surveyed or excavated since Israel occupied the West Bank and East Jerusalem in 1967. The data about each site here includes the site name(s), location on a GIS grid, a description of the site's major components, and details about the periods when the site was occupied. Visitors can get started by by clicking on the "view the searchable map interface" link. The map allows visitors to toggle different layers off and on, including "Time Period" and "Types of Sites." Additionally, visitors can download all of the data from the database, and look over a complete bibliography. The site is a tremendous resource for archaeologists and historians of the ancient world, and it's one that merits several return visits.
