Databases for teaching Ancient Israel and the Near East

Prepared by Dr Denis Mootz

The following are very extensive databases of information for teaching Ancient Israel and the Near East. They can be incorporated into your teaching strategy in many ways, including (1) as a reference source for teachers (2) for data mining by students as part independent historical inquiry projects (3) as an exemplar to encourage students to build their own databases of information they come across during their research, or to add to these ones.

We look forward to hearing how these have helped in your classroom!
