(Jerusalem Post) Thousands of documents tracing archaeological discoveries in Israel in the past 100 years will be published in an online database in the coming days, the Israel Antiquities Authority announced on Wednesday.

As part of a grant from the Landmarks Heritage Fund from the Prime Minister’s Office, the IAA used special scanners to preserve thousands of maps, letters, engineering plans, and other documents from Jerusalem and Akko dating back to the British Mandate period. These files are already online at the archive website.
