Artefacts: Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques

Sponsored by the Centre National de la Recherché Scientifique, Mason de l’Orient et la Méditerraneé, and Université Lumière Lyon 2, Artefacts: Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques (Online Encyclopedia for small archeological objects) is a fantastic new resource for small archaeological objects dating from the Neolithic Period to the Modern Era.

Not only does the site provide excellent records for objects, they include high-quality images, reproductions of artists renderings (if available), and geo-spatial data on find sites and geographic distribution. Additionally, object records include bibliographic citations and references that can be accessed through available hyperlinks.

This repository is a sterling example of a digital resource that can greatly facilitate research. Project Andvari hopes to follow in the footsteps of Artefacts: Encyclopédie en ligne des petits objets archéologiques by providing a quality interface to enhance the study of the material culture of early medieval northern Europe.
