Manar al-Athar Online Photo Archive

The Manar al-Athar open-access website, based at the University of Oxford, aims to provide high resolution, searchable images for teaching, research, and publication. These images of archaeological sites, with buildings and art, will cover the areas of the former Roman empire which later came under Islamic rule, such as Syro-Palestine/the Levant, Arabia, Egypt, North Africa, and Spain. The chronological range is from Alexander the Great (i.e., from about 300 BC), through the Islamic period, to the present.
It has strong coverage of Late Antique sites in Syro-Palestine which have undergone conversion from paganism to Christianity, and sometimes, in turn, to Islam. Other Late Antique strengths include mosaics (of Jordan, Syria, Antioch, and Tunisia), synagogues, and Umayyad buildings and art. More images are being loaded regularly at present to build up this coverage.

Images are freely downloadable for use in academic and educational publications simply by acknowledging the source.
