Your are invited to visit the web site of the AREA (Archives of European Archaeology) project at, which focuses on the history of archaeology.

Although our website is being restructured, as a result of the renewed funding that we have received from the Culture 2000 programme of the EU, we will soon add many new features, including an updated version of our archival database, the current research activities of our partners, biographical notes of prominent archaeologists (especially 19th century), bibliographical references, and possibly a reference guide to the history of archaeology. Your comments and suggestions would be very welcome.
