The Institute of Near Eastern Archaeology forms part of the faculty 12 of Cultural Sciences and the Department for Cultural Sciences and Ancient Studies. In addition to the BA programmes of "Archaeology" and "Ancient Near East", teaching also comprises the new master programme of "Near Eastern Archaeology". Another focus of our Institute is on research. Apart from field research, projects like HIGEOMES on the historical geography of Upper Mesopotamia and METROLOGIA, a French-German cooperation on the use, function and prevalence of different weight- and measure of capacity systems in the Ancient Near East in their socio-economic and historical context, are based at our institute. more
