Just thought i would create a thread dedicated to links useful to Academics, Researchers and Students of the Humanities field.
Here are some sites to get it started :)

ANCIENT LOCATIONS is my collection of Placemarks of archaeologically interesting locations of the ancient world.
The list is continuously updated and expanded to give anyone with an interest in archaeology and history the possibility to look up the coordinates of relevant sites.


On this site you find a data base that records almost all Latin inscriptions. The texts are presented without abbreviations and completed where possible. The presentation of the texts is kept as simple as possible. Beside the commonly used indications for resolution, completions and erasures as few special characters as possible have been used. The abbreviations give the references for the publications used. The statistical data indicates which volumes (with how many texts per volume as far as the Latin inscriptions are concerned) are recorded completely in the data base.


IDP is a ground-breaking international collaboration to make information and images of all manuscripts, paintings, textiles and artefacts from Dunhuang and archaeological sites of the Eastern Silk Road freely available on the Internet and to encourage their use through educational and research programmes.

The Penguin Atlas of Ancient History by Colin McEvedy

He has some pithy summaries, including this for 50,000 BC: "If the evidence for man’s descent is scanty, we can thank our ancestors who probably ate most of it. " :)
