Why Documenting Your Query is Important.
The CMAP database is periodically updated to include data from newly analyzed archaeological sites. Since data in the database may change after an update, it is important for a researcher to record the database version used when querying.
Notification of updates will be posted on the What’s New page. If you would like to be notified of updates to the Archive, please contact us. We’d be happy to put your name on our mailing list that notifies researchers of database updates, new content, fellowship announcements, and other CMAP-related news.
