ArchaeOman is a cross-project information platform for the field of Near Eastern Archaeology with the emphasis on Oman. It makes web-based content equally accessible to scholars and the interested public. The term ArchaeOman is derived from the Greek root archaeo (from Ancient Greek ἀρχαῖος archaios), which means "old" or "ancient", and Oman, which expresses the regional context to the Sultanate of Oman on the Arabian Peninsula.
ArchaeOman is, in the first instance, meant to complement the existing and planned academic publications (articles, chapters in edited volumes and monographs) with digital material. These are especially 3D models, panorama views and web GIS applications. They should not only contribute to archaeological research but also offer illustrative materials to the general public. In addition, short summaries of the results of the research are included.
The following projects are presented:
Bat (2010–2015), Al-Ayn (2010–2011), Al-Zebah (2011–2014), Al-Khubayb (2015), Muhaliyah (2016), Lizq (2017), the reuse of tombs (2015–2017), Tawi Said (2018), Al-Khashbah (since 2015), the Al-Mudhaybi Survey (since 2019), as well as UmWeltWandel (since 2020).
