Is there an archaeological resource available in Logos that shows pictures of ancient artifacts, such as coins and pottery, along with explanations of where and when they are from?  I am looking for a sort of catalog showing all the coins from a certain area of the ancient Near East in chronological order.  Pottery would be good as well.  I may have something already, but I am not putting my finger on it.

The "Archaeology of the Land of the Bible" series has a lot of good stuff, but it is black and white.

Outside a media search (museums), I think Logos is going to be a bit spotty.

My favorites (A-Company)

BibleTimes PhotoMuseum

Biblical World in Pictures (BAS)

Both organized by subject and time/place. 

But you know coins are persia and later. I think Logos has a prepub on pottery styles by period (about to ahip?)

EDIT: Can't find the pottery book, but quite good.

I'm not aware of such a resource. That would be quite a task bringing coins and pottery together.

Your request is broad, but here are some coin sites that I have found useful:

Yes, I do like the Bible Times PhotoMuseum, that looks like a great resource, and I actually have the Biblical World in Pictures in Logos from the old Archaeology collection from the L3 days.  Thanks for the suggestions, Denise!

Great suggestions, Ted.  I will look into these.  It would be okay to find separate volumes for coins and pottery or even broken up further people groups.  Thanks!

It might be useful to save these links in a notes file for future quick reference. It would be a bit like creating your own resource of archaeological data you are interested in.

Or tag them for future searches and filtering of library.

Haven't used them, but there are 3 volumes in the Anchor reference library on Biblical Archaeology. Has anyone used these?

Product link => Archaeology of the Land of the Bible (3 vols.) plus quoted earlier reply in this thread:

Concur color images would be an appreciated improvement. Chapters have useful insights.

They are actually very good; I just wish the illustrations were in color, but black and white seems pretty standard for this kind of work.
