These page provide access to my archival collection of some 1100 images of archaeological and archaeoastronomical interest, which has been available on this site since 1995.

Please note that the images are of variable quality and that many of the captions are in need of update. A major overhaul is under way: the images themselves are being cleaned up, many hundreds of new ones are being added, and the captions are being systematically revised.* In the meantime they are offered here as a raw resource: please take them as you find them. Copyright information is given beneath each image.

As of 1 September 2009, the image collection has been moved to this TEMPORARY LOCATION. The search facility has been removed but you can still locate images of particular sites via hierachical menus organised geographically.

*An expanded and updated set of images of UK and Irish sites and landscapes, with improved captions and search criteria, is available as part of the Archaeology Image Bank provided by the Archaeology Data Service.
