Archaeology Resources: Compiled Guide

Indexes (citations to articles in journals, conference papers, books, etc.) & Bibliographies

(Note: Periodical indexes offer you citation access to articles in periodicals. Some of these citations link to full text, while others do not, and will require you to find the paper journal to see the article itself.)

NOTE: Core archaeological indexes ONLINE are preceded by an asterisk.

NOTE: Most of the listed indexes and bibliographies DO NOT in themselves contain online full-text articles. If they do not, to find out whether the articles in your citations are available online, search the Journal title (or book title) in CLIO. Be sure to note if the years covered online match the date of your citation. (Also, see section II: Electronic Journals. )

In addition, there is a service, E-Link, within many of the online indexes listed below. E-Link can be found as a button next to the citation. It provides direct links from a database citation to the full text of the article online (if available) and if full-text isn't available, E-Link checks CLIO, our library catalog, to see if the Libraries have what you need in print. E-Link will also help you submit an interlibrary loan request. Just click on the E-Link icon for a menu showing the options available to you.

Nemea Valley archaeological project archaeological survey. (Online)
NVAP-AS was organized in 1983 to investigate through the technique of intensive surface survey an area of approximately 80 square kilometers in the southern Corinthia, Greece. The area extends from Mt. Phoukas and the ridge of the ancient city-state of Phlius, on the north, to the Dervenakia (Tretos) Pass and Mt. Strongylo, on the south. From 1984-86, three teams of archaeologists operating in the field each summer examined a total of 50 square kilometers; in 1989, much of the remainder was inspected using less intensive procedures. The archaeological survey was the first in Greece to take as its most basic unit of analysis not the site but rather the individual artifact: we have been interested in explaining the existence of all traces of activity in the ancient landscape, not only major concentrations of artifacts or those that remain in the places where they were originally deposited." Links to information, publications, and images from the Nemea Valley archaeological survey.
