About eHRAF

Our award-winning, membership-based eHRAF Archaeology database contains information on the prehistory of the world for a sample of archaeological traditions.

Designed with comparative archaeological research in mind, eHRAF differs from other academic online databases that you may be used to.

The contents are organized by traditions and indexed at the paragraph level by HRAF anthropologists with unique subject identifier codes from the Outline of Cultural Materials (OCM), making it ideal for both exploratory, in-depth cultural research, and cross-archaeological comparisons.
