Last updated: 8/20/18

The Manar al-Athar website and database aims to provide high resolution, searchable images for teaching, research, and publication. These images of archaeological sites, with buildings and art, 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 is the first website of its kind providing such material labelled jointly in both Arabic and English.

Manar al-Athar is based at the University of Oxford.
