Ancient Near East Photographs
This collection, created by Professor
Scott Noegel, documents artifacts and
archaeological sites of the ancient
Near East. While the majority of the
collection depicts structures and sites
dating from 3000 BCE to 200 CE, the
collection also has images of more
recent sites, such as the al-Azhar
Mosque and the modern creation,
Lake Nasser. Currently, all images are
of Egypt and Israel, although plans
exist to eventually add images from
Anatolia, Syria, Iraq, and Iran.
About the Database
The images were collected over a ten
year period by University of
Washington scholars, and the images
included in this database were chosen
to facilitate research and to
supplement general reading in a
variety of disciplines. The richness of
this image collection can be seen in
the diversity of the topics represented
by the images within. In addition to
topic-specific images, one can find
pictorial data to supplement to the
study of pharaonic history, daily life in
ancient times, ancient art,
architectural features, and the history
of religions (Egyptian, Canaanite,
Israelite, Judaism, Coptic Christianity,
Early Islam, etc.).
Images were scanned at 300dpi using
an Umax Astra 2000 scanner and
saved at 72dpi as jpg files. Alterations
were made with Adobe Photoshop.
The images in this collection are
owned by Professor Scott Noegel. For
permission to use these images you
must send an inquiry to Dr. Scott
Noegel at snoegel[at]u[dot]washington[dot]edu.
