Rock Inscriptions and Graffiti Project


The Rock Inscriptions and Graffiti Project

Directed by M. E. Stone, the projectís files contain nearly 9,000 inscriptions relating to the Holy Places and the Holy Land, many of them in Armenian. The inscriptions illustrate human movement through the Land of Israel and Sinai, the varied inhabitants of the desert and their character, and in general, the human geography.

The inscriptions database, along with informational files, photographs, bibliography and maps, is now under the auspices of the Orion Center. It is located in room 3517 of the Humanities Building on Mt. Scopus.
