This blog has been list as one of the Top 50 Biblical History Blogs according to the Accredited Online Bible Colleges web site. The blogs are arranged alphabetically according to type. Note #35 under the “Archaeology and Place” category.
There are excellent blogs which did not make this particular list, but it is nice to be considered useful.
Update: I noted above that several high-profile blogs were absent from this list. I have seen them on other “Top 50” lists that are compiled by well-known individuals or associations. I do not know how this particular list was compiled by the “Accredited Online Bible Colleges” folks, but Todd Bolen (whose blog ranks high in many lists and search engines) has an idea of how/why this kind of thing may happen in some situations. Interesting stuff.
