Archaeology Photography is the world's first dedicated and fully-searchable collection of archaeological photographs and video. With over 80,000 archaeology images and 1300 DVD-quality videos covering more than 400 archaeological sites across the Mediterranean basin, is the largest online archaeology media resource.Conceived and built with the needs of academics, publishers, and scholars in mind - is a highly-organized and constantly-expanding collection - the brainchild of archaeologist and photographer Samuel Magal. Magal's high quality images have been featured for years in authoritative text books and are used daily in universities and colleges across the world to teach the next generation of archaeologists and historians.

Recognizing demand among fellow scholars for easily-accessible media, cataloged according to key research parameters like site or monument name, type and style, historical era or geographical region, Magal founded to be a one-stop-shop for archaeological research. The web site includes visual content from both well-known and rare archaeological sites, in-depth site background information, and an archive of archaeological articles and diagrams.

With an innovative subscription or simple one-time purchase business models, image bank makes more archaeological content more accessible, more cost-effectively, to a wider audience. Academic institutions can subscribe to the complete library, offering unlimited access to images and videos. Publishing houses can enjoy unique pricing plans dependent upon size, quality and media usage.

"Online archaeological research suffered from a glut of low-quality, uncataloged media," noted Magal. "Simply put, we created to make life easier for researchers. By offering high-quality images and video supplemented by comprehensive background knowledge, all organized in a logical catalog, is an indispensable tool for universities, publishers, and researchers worldwide," he concluded.
