Edition 5 note, 2021 update

The previous version of ArchAtlas included a search facility for archaeological sites which allowed the user to enter a site name and find latitude and longitude values. This is no longer the best way to share site coordinates, especially without relying on an insecure database backend. The feature has been therefore been retired for the long-term-archive version of the website.
