The following websites are a selection of online resources, available free and open access, for research on Levantine (“biblical”) archaeology and the Bible in its ancient world. We have listed mainly high quality and non-confessional resources in English that are accessible to the general public, and which we believe will be of most value to the readers of The Bible and Interpretation.
