Summary

"Ancient Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) was the original site of many of the major developments in human history, such as farming, the rise of urban literate societies and the first great empires of Akkad, Babylonia and Assyria." The work of archaeologists is central to our understanding of Mesopotamia's past; this volume evaluates the theories, methods, approaches and history of Mesopotamian archaeology from its origins in the nineteenth century up to the present day.
