Athena Review Image Archive (ARIA): a resource for archaeology

  • Archaeology, and other natural sciences such as geology, biology, and paleontology, study material evidence provided by tangible remains, and the space they occupy.
  • Visual imagery, including maps, site and artifact photos, and aerial photos, provides key elements for successful research of such evidence.
  • The Athena Review Image Archive is an accumulation of thousands of images used in the journal's articles and related research in archaeology, history, and paleontology. This visual evidence is available for all to use.
