Ancient Near East Placemarks for Google Earth

I had this installed earlier, but somehow managed to delete it, and on finding it again thought others might like to know (it was Chuck Jones who originally put me on to it some while back, thanks). ANE Placemarks for Google Earth by Olof Pedersén Professor in Assyriology at Uppsala University.

When you have it installed, preservation-minded people can zoom in on individual sites and have a look at the number of looters' holes in some regions. All you collectors out there who thinks every one of those sites should have a 24/7 guard squad on them as the 'only way' to stop illicit material appearing on a market near you, zoom in and look at each of them and think of the logistics and costs.
