    These are some links that I've collected on some of the historical and archeological topics that have interested me. I hope others will list some sources of information relating to history, prehistory and archaeology in this thread. Discussions on good books and journal or magazine articles are also worth mentioning here. I'll sticky the thread and let it grow, but expect tangents or discussions that go on for more than a few posts to get split to their own threads. Woo-woo links and spam will be deleted.

    A couple that I've gathered up:
    (You've already listed several others.)

    Çatalhöyük Home Page: Neolithic site in central Anatolia. One of the largest and earliest cities (village?) in ancient history. The city passes through hunter-gatherer to farming culture. Fascinating finds and cultural implications.

    Archaeological Atlas of the Aegean: An interactive map of Aegean archaeological sites.

    Yes, nice find! I hope you don't mind, but I took the liberty of copying the thread to the History Resources thread.
