Over the past month, the ASOR staff has been assembling online resources to aid our members and friends who have been asked to adapt to online teaching. We encourage you to share online resources, websites, teaching aids, guidelines, or advice that you feel could be useful to ASOR members or the public. Please email Marta Ostovich ( with any resource links you would like to share. We also welcome your suggestions and offers to volunteer in helping us set up these resources (webinars, tutorials, etc.). The following page is a work in progress and we are extremely grateful to all of you who have already contributed!

Archaeology in the Community-ASOR Ancient Nubia Curriculum


Over the last couple of years, ASOR has partnered with Archaeology in the Community (AITC), a local D.C.-based organization specializing in archaeological education, to produce a series of educational videos and lesson plans on Ancient Nubia featuring black scholars who work in this area. The videos are designed for 6th grade teachers to use in fulfillment of Social Studies, Civics, and Geography requirements.

The videos feature interviews with Dr. Solange Ashby (Egyptology-Nubiology), Debora Heard (Archaeology), Jenail Marshall (Bioarchaeology), and Dr. Shayla Monroe (Zooarchaeology). They were produced by Sydney A. Pickens, Ali Bavugamenshi, and Dr. Alexandra Jones. Music was provided by 2 Nice Guys Music Production (Teddy Burgh and Teddy Thompson).


The ASOR Photo Collection is designed as a resource for the ASOR community to share images of the Middle East, North Africa, and the wider Mediterranean world. The photos in this Collection have been submitted by ASOR members and celebrate the rich heritage of the regions in which the ASOR community works. ASOR is providing open access to these images for use in lectures and presentations.
