Workshop: New Archaeological and Epigraphic Research in Iraq

Recent archeological and epigraphic fieldwork in Iraq has seen a surge of activity. Several projects, conducted by Iraqi and international teams, are currently underway in both the autonomous Kurdish region – in the districts of Erbil, Sulaimaniya, and Dohuk – and in the South – mostly in the governorates of Dhi Qar, Wasit, Qasidissiyah, Najaf and Muthanna.


These projects target both well-known and newly discovered sites dating from the Palaeolithic to the Iron Age and include excavations as well as large-scale regional surveys. Other projects aim to build capacity by training Iraqi archaeologists and heritage management specialists. This session aims to bring together researchers working in Iraq to provide a venue for presentation and discussion of ongoing work.


Paper topics on archeological as well epigraphic fieldwork and heritage management projects throughout Iraq are welcome.
