Mediterranean Ceramics Reference Stability Report

Archaeologists working with Mediterranean ceramics require access both to information about objects and to secondary literature. This post initiates a project to track the ability of scholars using digital resources to cite stable references to digital versions of books and journals as well as to online catalogs of object images and descriptions. The list of 10 digital resources will be repeated early each month with a report on any changes to the URLs used to access them.

2. Robinson's Agora V from JSTOR:

3. Lattara 6:
