INDEX of Sites

On Warren's Gate (and tunnel) you can begin with the Palestine Exploration Fund (PEF) as this was where Warren worked. LINK  Also see the Official website LINK. Try not to get side tracked on issues other than his work and this is not a biography of Warren's life so don't provide a lot of details on Warren himself, other than a brief introduction to who he was and his work in Jerusalem LINK. The primary source material of the correspondence and articles of his travels are available at LINK and Primary source documents at LINK. Most information on Charles Warren and the Gate he discovered can be found in the history of Jerusalem or history of archaeology and under Warren himself. Remember to provide "the historical background of the site (including history of previous archaeological excavations, if any), objectives of the current excavation, progress at the site, and significance of discoveries to biblical study." Make sure to choose a good encyclopedia, journal articles, and books that specialize in the subject. This will give you a cross section of material.
