Palestine Exploration Quarterly On-line

Palestine Exploration Quarterly

The Palestine Exploration Quarterly provides a unique record of the early days of archaeology in the Holy land from 1869 onwards. As it is published in the United Kingdom it is covered by the ‘standard life of author + 70 years’ copyright. This means that much of the early material is now in the public domain – though this has to be established by finding out when all the authors died. As this is a time-consuming process and the issues often have pull-out maps, the process of digitisation has been somewhat slower than usual.

I have just added the public domain material from the 1914-1920 issues to the website (click to access the table of contents).
