A Web Project Removal Notice from Argos at evansville.edu has recently posted that the following specialized search engine has been take offline due to a lack of resources
Argos: Limited Area Search of the Ancient and Medieval Internet (argos.evansville.edu)
This news is not surprising.
Who needs specialized search engines when you have all-encompassing tools such as Google or AllTheWeb?
The little guys simply can not compete in this sector.

This posting refers to an online article of the Washington Post entitled Moon Watch Resurfaces In Court (washingtonpost.com): "Moon Watch Resurfaces In Court - Astronaut, Smithsonian, Collector Claim Rights To Lost Timepiece", by Jacqueline Trescott, Washington Post Staff Writer, Friday, October 17, 2003; Page C01
The same criminal problems attendant to archaeology - greed, and more greed - are not just limited to places such as Iraq and the scandals surrounding the looting of its museum. Similar problems are found in the most unexpected places, even among so-called unique "modern" artifacts.
It appears that Astronaut Buzz Aldrin's Omega "Moon Watch" - the first watch on the Moon - may have been "stolen" while on its way to the Smithsonian Institute and has now turned up in the hands of what appears to be a bona fide purchaser (not all the facts are known yet).

Yahoo! Groups : Explorator
Explorator is a fine newsletter service which Dave Meadows runs under the name of "Explorator" at Yahoo groups. The Explorator newsletter appears once a week in your mailbox if you subscribe to it and contains copious links to current archaeology news around the world. One can also access the Exporator newsletter online at the link given above. Take a look at it. At last report, Explorator had over 3000 members - i.e. list recipients - and I can vouch for the list as good, being a recipient myself.
ArchaeoPundit is a weblog - also called a blog - focused on archaeology and related disciplines, e.g. studies of the megaliths of Ancient Britain and elsewere, research or finds concerning Pharaonic Civiliization as well as studies of the history of the ancient near east, including matters relating to Old Testament scholarship.
As we find materials on the web which we find to be of interest, we will provide links to such materials, and, if appropriate, will add our commentary to what we have found.
We will also peruse archaeology blogs and similar weblogs and blog the bloggers.
Matters of special importance will also find their way into the LexiLine List on the History of Civilization at Yahoo egroups, which we moderate.
