Research and Protection on Iraq's Archaeological Heritage - 28-29/04/2019, Najaf (Iraq)
Archaeological research in South Iraq is currently undergoing dynamic growth, with new excavations and surveys already changing our reconstruction of the origins of Mesopotamian urban life. This international conference will focus on the archaeology and social history of Mesopotamia during the 4th through 3rd millennia BC, or the Late Ubaid through Ur III Periods. We invite papers that focus on the early cities and states of Mesopotamia, through aspects such as art, architecture, material culture and texts. We also invite papers using scientific techniques to explore the Mesopotamian past (e.g., isotope studies, UAV mapping, or geoarchaeology). The conference will also include a strong focus on cultural heritage and its protection, through conservation and public archaeology presentation strategies; papers that examine museums, exhibits, and their interaction with diverse audiences will be very welcome.
LUGAR/LOCATION/LUOGO: University of Kufa (Najaf, Iraq)
