AegeaNet is a discussion and news group on the pre-classical Aegean world from Palaeolithic to Homer and beyond. AegeaNet was born in December 1993 (as aegeanet@duke.edu), was announced at the annual meeting of the Archaeological Institute of America in Washington D.C. on 29 December, and moved to the University of Kansas (aegeanet@ku.edu) on 20 February 2002. At present it has over 800 subscribers. The purpose of AegeaNet is to facilitate discussion, initiate and test new ideas, and explore possibilities in the world of the Aegean Bronze Age. Ideas, musings and queries, sample arguments, fully developed theses, and even entire drafts of papers are welcome.
AWBG is a place for posts and discussion about blogging the Ancient World. Particularly welcome are entries announcing real world events where bloggers can meet, planning and notice of virtual blogfests - when a group of bloggers are posting about the same topic, and other issues related to how bloggers go about their business. Since this is a meta-blog, the list of links below currently includes sites that are similarly introspective about using technology to study some part of the Ancient World.

ANE 2: A DISCUSSION LIST FOR THE STUDY OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST A successor to the Ancient Near East Discussion List originally hosted by the Oriental Institute at the University of Chicago. ANE 2 is a moderated academic discussion list that focuses on topics and issues of interest in Ancient Near Eastern Studies, from the Indus to the Nile, and from the beginnings of human habitation to the rise of Islam. It is intended to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas on these topics between and among scholars and students actively engaged in research and study of the Ancient Near East. Active (on-list) participation in ANE 2 assumes an informed knowledge of the ancient Near East and adherence to List Protocols (which are available at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ANE-2/files/ANE%202%20Protocols and are sent to each new subscriber upon approval of subscription application). The act of subscribing to the list signifies the agreement of the subscriber to follow these protocols and to accept the adjudications of the Moderators. ANE 2 is international in scope. List Members should expect to be able to read postings in English, French and German. Participants are free to post in any of these languages, and, upon occasion, in other languages used in the study of the Ancient Near East. Moderators: Trudy S. Kawami, Ph.D., Columbia University Art History & Archaeology, Director of Research, Arthur M. Sackler Foundation; N. P. Lemche, Professor Dr.Theol., Department of Biblical Exegesis, The University of Copenhagen; Marc Cooper, Missouri State University, Department of History; Robert Whiting, University of Helsinki; Charles E. Jones, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, New York University; Jeffrey B. Gibson, D.Phil. (Oxon)
