Fun link for Monday: Hatay Archaeology Museum Online


This is the inaugural post of Fun link for Monday. There are no real rules or themes for these, although they will likely always be archaeological or museum related. So, for this first link I have chosen something that is both 🙂

The new online collection from the Hatay Archaeology Museum in Turkey. The museum, which is currently in development to open in 2013, has begun with this online collection. It is a really good example of an online photographic database. The collection features two main collections: the mosaic collection and other artifacts (mostly are from the Roman and Hittite eras).

The site features full 360′ viewing on many of the 3-dimensional artifacts and if you click through to the inventory listing you will find all the catalog information as well as a great magnification tool to see all the small details.

Enjoy!

I am a museologist and an archaeologist. I love both, but they work best when mixed together.
