Tracing the Influence of Prominent ANE Archaeologists

This is a fascinating research project about archaeologists in Biblical lands and how they influenced others in the field. The survey demonstrates that the surveyed scholars are more interested in their actual research material than in the history of their discipline. That suggests that they may not be acknowledging the influence of those who broke ground for them (pun intended!)

The survey yielded 539 names of individual scholars, with a total of 441 links showing advisor/advisee relationships for those who received a PhD.
