Perspectives on the archaeology, history and palaeoenvironment of Iraqi Kurdistan.
At a crossroads between the flood plain of southern Mesopotamia, the Assyrian heartland to the north and Western Iran, the province of Sulaymaniyah (Kurdish Autonomous Region of Iraq) constitutes one of the most fertile agricultural regions of the Middle East. Archaeological research in this important region was limited for much of the later twentieth century, owing to modern political circumstances. This conference brings together a new generation of researchers, whose fieldwork is filling out this significant gap in the archaeological, historical, and environmental record.
Presentations will span the emergence of village life in the Neolithic period through to the imperial landscapes of the Iron Age, and the meeting will highlight a range of projects based at UCL, alongside those of other leading European universities, including new excavations, surveys, and reconstructions of past environments.
