Moore Group is delighted to present When On Google Earth 100 after Declan solved Ferhan’s When on Google Earth 99 (which was Erebuni Fortress in Yerevan, Armenia). Started by Shawn Graham back  in January 2009, the game owes it’s origins to a geological game (Where on Google Earth) which has been around for a little longer. Shawn has a near complete list of the previous winners here.

The Rules of When on Google Earth are simple:
Q: What is When on Google Earth?
A: It’s a game for archaeologists, or anybody else willing to have a go!

Q: How do you play it?
A: Simple, you try to identify the site in the picture.

Q: Who wins?
A: The first person to correctly identify the site, including its major period of occupation, wins the game.

Q: What does the winner get?
A: The winner gets bragging rights and the chance to host the next When on Google Earth on his/her own blog!
