ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE MIDDLE EAST
Credit points: 15
In this subject we trace fundamental innovations in the human career which were played out in the Middle East. The region was the cradle of crucial developments including the advent of the earliest farming societies and literate civilisations. Focusing on South-west Asia, the subject continues to investigate its archaeology from the Bronze and Iron Ages to the period of western ascendancy in the Hellenistic to Byzantine periods, concluding with the arrival of the Crusaders in the region. Political conditions, international rivalry and the massive size of many archaeological sites all played their parts in producing a distinctive brand of Middle Eastern archaeology.
