eHRAF Archaeology (formerly eHRAF Collection of Archaeology) is a teaching and research tool that provides researchers and students access to archaeological materials for comparative studies within and across regions. Annual installments cover eight or more major traditions from around the world with at least 10,000 pages indexed with subject codes. Most major traditions contain an overview by an expert and descriptive materials on five to seven sites. eHRAF assigns subjects to individual paragraphs, which allows searching for concepts as well as keywords.
