Endangered Archaeology in the Middle East and North Africa
This two-year project, supported by the Arcadia Fund and based at the Universities of Oxford and Leicester, will use satellite imagery to record and make available information about archaeological sites and landscapes which are under threat across the Middle East and North Africa. The archaeological heritage of the Middle East and North Africa, which is of international significance for all periods, is under increasing threat from massive and sustained population explosion, agricultural development, urban expansion, warfare, and looting.
Development of a cultural heritage database
**Coming soon - watch this space**
Watch this space for the launch of EAMENA's spatial database, which will be accessible to all people and institutions with an interest and passion for the wonderfully rich and diverse archaeological heritage of the Middle East and North Africa. At the core of our project is the desire for excellence in heritage management.
We use state-of-the-art Arches 3 heritage management software to record all archaeological sites. The software is designed to the highest international standards for recording heritage sites and can be customised to meet the needs of any heritage project. It is open sourced and web-based.
