AMAR: Archive of Mesopotamian Archaeological Site Reports

The Archive of Mesopotamian Archaeological Reports (AMAR) collection is under development as part of the Iraq Cultural Heritage Program Grant. The Iraq Cultural Heritage Project (ICHP) was established in 2008 through a grant from the US Embassy Baghdad. The Cultural Affairs Office at the Embassy oversees the project. International Relief and Development (IRD), a US-based non-governmental organization, implements the project for the Embassy.
The project director, Elizabeth Stone, has directed archaeological excavations in Iraq, has been engaged in advanced training for Iraqi archaeologists and has attempted to document and stem the damage to Iraq's archaeological sites. Dr. Stone is collaborating with the University Libraries at Stony Brook University to make the AMAR collection available online. Before developing this online collection, she contributed more than one hundred digitized volumes to the ETANA website. 

The aim of the AMAR project is to digitize 500 archaeological site reports describing archaeological excavations both in Iraq and in the immediately surrounding areas (Turkey, Syria, Iran and the Gulf). This will include both out-of-copyright as well as in-copyright and in-print materials. This online collection is intended to provide basic sources of information to our colleagues in Iraq, and also other archaeologists working in the Middle East. 

The electronic files are only to be distributed from the AMAR Web site. 

Individuals, libraries, institutions, and others may download one complimentary copy for their own personal use. Links to the AMAR Web site are welcomed.

Levantine Epigraphy and History in the Achaemenid Period

SCHWEICH LECTURES ON BIBLICAL ARCHAEOLOGY
ImageProfessor André Lemaire, École Pratique des Hautes Études

Tuesday 25 June, Wednesday 26 June and Thursday 27 June 2013, 6.00pm
The British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AH

The Achaemenid period in the Levant is generally considered an obscure part of history. However, since 1980, epigraphic discoveries and research have thrown new light on this period.  A variety of aspects will be presented across three evening lectures on this subject.

Tuesday 25 June 2013
Levantine Epigraphy and Phoenicia: the kingdoms of Byblos, Sidon and Tyre during the Achaemenid period

The Persian “king of kings” had to rely on the Phoenician navy in his wars against Greece in the Eastern Mediterranean and Phoenicia played the most important part in the satrapy of ‘Avar-Nahara. Since 1980, the dates of important royal Sidonian inscriptions have been revised and various new inscriptions from Byblos, Sidon and Tyre as well as new numismatic studies have been published. They shed new light on the history and extent of the Phoenician kingdoms, especially on their relations with Palestine.

Wednesday 26 June 2013West Semitic Epigraphy and the Judean Diaspora during the Achaemenid Period: Babylonia, Egypt, Cyprus
According to the Biblical texts Kings and Jeremiah, after the fall of Jerusalem, King Nebuchadnezzar deported part of the Judean population to Babylonia while other Judeans took refuge in Egypt. Apart from in the book of Ezekiel, the Bible does not tell us much about their life there. New epigraphic data can now reveal how the Judean refugees’ lived.
Thursday 27 June 2013
Levantine epigraphy and Samaria, Judaea and Idumaea during the Achaemenid period

The historical interpretation of the Biblical books of Ezra and Nehemiah is much debated and these books essentially concern Jerusalem and Judea. The publication of various – mainly Aramaic – contemporary inscriptions (papyri, ostraca, seals, seal-impressions, coins etc) sheds new light on the daily life and religion of the Persian provinces of Samaria, Judaea and Idumaea, especially during the 4th c. BCE. They help us to understand several Biblical texts in their historical and economical context.

New Open Access Journal: Networks and Neighbours

Networks and Neighbours
http://networksandneighbours.org/public/journals/1/pageHeaderTitleImage_en_US.png
N&N aims to promote the study of how people and communities interacted within and without their own world and localities in the Early Middle Ages.

The journal Networks and Neighbours (N&N) is a voice of the larger, international project of scholars by the same name.  The project runs masterclasses, lectures and other events including our annual symposium.  The symposium rotates around the globe, thereby eliciting the work being done across academic environments, languages and traditions and providing a real face to the international network of early medievalists.  In 2013 the symposium was held in Leeds, U.K. while in 2014 the N&N Symposium will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  This international spirit is embodied in the journal N&N, and to this end we invite reports from early medieval activities worldwide and book reviews and articles in languages other than English.

The editorial board of N&N consists of established leaders in the field as well as emerging young scholars working in early medieval studies.  The methodologies, styles, chosen historiographies, historical representations and theses of the board members complement each other in various ways and provide emulative models of historical research and authorship.  They also represent though the firm, critical and confrontational interrogations needed to advance early medieval scholarship in radical directions and towards truly alternative ways of thinking and emerging the early medieval past.


N&N thus aims to promote the study of how people and communities interacted within and without their own world and localities in the Early Middle Ages.  Our ultimate discourse is amenable to intellectual events that emerge from N&N but inceptively we set out with the view that if texts present directed meaning because they are sets of signifiers and our minds are developed so as to expect, anticipate and subsequently comprehend complex information through sets, or networks, of ideas, then we can argue that it is the respective, local topology of a past situation, or rather of its functional and malleable discourses, that can provide the modern ‘reader’, or historian, with the framework through which s/he can write a story of the past.  We maintain that identity and meaning were not determined by fixed sets and integers, but by a complex network of interrelated signs. In practice, this suggests that a single person within their personal world could have travelled within various worlds and realities, identifying with various neighbours at even single overlapping points of identity; one did not encounter another as a fixed category, either of ‘self’ or ‘other’. Therefore, by ‘network’ we do not mean a fixed identifier, a singularizing category, but refer to the complex ways that individuals, groups, institutions et cetera constructed self-considered, coherent and singular existences from the multiplicity of mental activity, perceptions, ideas, and the varying confrontation with images, physical and non-human being, languages, sounds, senses, ‘discourses’ and all else that was life in the period.

These are the foundational thoughts of N&N and we welcome those interested in them but also those critical of such approaches and otherwise anyone engaged in the serious reconsideration, revisiting and re-presenting (via text, image or sound) of the historical sources, patterns, inventions, representations and historiographies about early medieval worlds to submit a piece to Networks and Neighbours.

Upper Greater Zab Archaeological Reconnaissance (UGZAR) Project is the name for field activities (archaeological survey) aimed at recording of the prehistoric and historic period sites located in Iraqi Kurdistan, on both sides of Greater Zab river (MAP 1). Research on the evidence gathered during the field-work will aim at preparing a full catalogue of archaeological sites located within the limits of the project area, from the Paleolithic to Late Middle Ages period. These data will be used for reconstruction of the settlement trend and the settlement history of the area. After the termination of the project the data will be transferred to local authorities to allow for a more efficient protection and management of the archaeological heritage of Kurdistan.

A Computerized Database of the Entire Body of
Extant Chinese Encyclopedias (Leishu)
Project Summary
  Chinese Encyclopedias (Leishu) are reference books consisting of extracts from sources extant at the time of compilation which were put under different categories. By the time of the Tang and Song dynasties, the compilation of Leishu became fashionable, and well-known examples of them survive in the present day, for instance, Beitong Shuchao, Yiwen Leiju, Taiping Yulan, Chuxueji. The CHANT Database contains the entire corpus of traditional Chinese texts down to the sixth century, but some missing titles/passages are still to be found in the form of citations in various Leishu. The Research Grants Council of the Hong Kong Government funded this project in 2000. The objectives of this study are: i) to build up a computerized database of extant Leishu. ii) to make a comparative study of citations appearing in Leishu and the CHANT Database. Regarding the comparative study, there are three tasks we set ourselves. First, by comparing the earliest citations with extant versions, we hope to be able to correct textual mistakes wherever they occur. Second, we would make an analysis of the variant readings through textual comparison. In this way, we can get closer to the texts as they were in their original form, which may differ significantly from extant versions. Third, we are able to identify all texts which are not found in extant editions so that such missing parts can be culled and re-constituted for purposes of textual studies. We estimated that some of the Leishu could be available online in 2004.
