Downloadable Megiddo reports!

The following message has been passed around this evening (courtesy of T. Urban) about the online availability of some of the old excavation reports of the Oriental Institute excavations at Megiddo.

Do check this out – many of these titles are hard to find:

The Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago announces the online publication of four older titles. Internet publication of these books was made possible through the generous support of Misty and Lewis Gruber.
