Chronology Links of Interest

We give here a few links of chronological interest, which we hope will prove useful. As there is little yet available on the Internet concerning the traditional topics fundamental to ancient dating (such as stratigraphy, ceramic typology, chronicles, kinglists and genealogies), our selection concentrates on scientific methods.


  • ABZU
    Guide to the resources for the study of the Ancient Near East available on the Internet (Oriental Institute Chicago).
  • SCIEM 2000
    An ambitious project for the "Synchronization of Civilizations in the Eastern Mediterranean in the 2nd Millennium B.C.", funded by the Austrian Academy.
  • The Prehistoric Archaeology of the Aegean
    A useful summary by Jeremy Rutter of Dartmouth College.
  • Megiddo: The Chronology Debate
    From the archaeology pages of Tel Aviv University.
  • Palestine Exploration Fund
    The leading British society for the promotion of research into the archaeology, history, culture, topography, geology and natural sciences of Palestine.
  • Middle Assyria
    Useful site giving information, texts and translations, etc, on the Middle Assyrian kings, and the evidence for synchronisms with the rulers of Babylonia, Hatti, Mitanni and Egypt during the Late Bronze Age.
  • The EEF Guide to Internet Resources for Ancient Egyptian Texts
    Links to many Egyptian historical texts from the Old Kingdom to Roman times, from the pages of the Egyptologists’ Electronic Forum (EEF).
  • E-Journals and Digitized Paper Periodicals (Egyptology)
    Also from the EEF. Links to dozens of journals available online – the “free” content largely concerns periodicals from the late 19th and early 20th centuries often hard to find in libraries. Mainly Egyptology, but some biblical and ancient Near Eastern studies, etc.
