About Our Site

ArchaeologyExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on extensive information on archaeology and artefacts.

Archaeology is as old as mankind yet as new as the latest discovery. Archaeology has never failed to fascinate inquisitive minds, facilitate academic disciplines, and formulate our cultural history.

ArchaeologyExpert is a practical resource that conveniently catalogues a wealth of pertinent articles in relevant lists, suitable for the professional to the enthusiastic amateur. It is rapidly becoming a principal data source for archaeological information.

The website is remarkably comprehensive. It includes individual profiles on famous archaeologists, the basics of excavation with a glossary of terms, a variety of specialisations within archaeology, key articles on important finds and artefacts, and information on how and where to find work on an archaeological dig.

Until now, researchers were required to cross search an array of information sources in order to investigate archaeological topics. ArchaeologyExpert has compiled all this into one easy to navigate site that is written with the web reader in mind. Quickly find precise archaeological information all displayed at one location.

You will find that the home page interface is user friendly. Topic headings have drop down lists that create a seamless browsing environment. The articles are both current and interesting. New articles are regularly added and information is updated. Readers of ArchaeologyExpert can be assured of well presented, accurate data, of the highest standard, suitable for research projects, assignments, or to increase your general knowledge about archaeology.

There is no easier way to locate comprehensive archaeological information than ArchaeologyExpert.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

ArchaeologyExpert was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding ArchaeologyExpert and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
