In light of recent events a new web site is being launched to track and attempt to protect at 'risk historical sites'.


A new internet platform has been launched today to rescue cultural heritage sites on the verge of being irremediably lost, said Global Heritage Fund,



Combining Google Earth, scientific mapping from Esri, satellite imagery from DigitalGlobe, and social networking, the platform aims to serve as an early warning system for site conservation leaders, archaeologists, local communities, government officials, and volunteers.

Very nice link, and thank you for finding it. Egypt has recently released a list of things taken from the museums and (as someone on the Egyptology BBS said) it sort of looked like a "shopping list."

I'm going to "sticky" this to the top of the forum and lock the thread -- if folks have sites to add to this, please let me know and we'll be sure to add them to this valuable information.
