In a photo from the Archives, archaeologist Nelson Glueck takes a break from his explorations to snap a photo with a soldier, circa 1938.

Greetings from the ASOR Archives! As you may know, the ASOR Archives has been a hive of activity for the last three years as we have been organizing, preserving, and digitizing over one hundred years of records documenting ASOR’s history and the history of American archaeology in the Near East.

    Greetings!

    I just want to salute you on the Archon- Nelson Glueck papers and photos. Impressive! As a Jordanian now living in the US, I cannot but say thank you for making the photos available to the public.

    Just wondering if there's a way to add some helpful info to certain photos, maybe in the future.

    Again, great job!
