The Intellectual Heritage of Assyria and Babylonia in East and West
The Assyrian and Babylonian Intellectual Heritage Project (Melammu) investigates the continuity, transformation and diffusion of Mesopotamian culture throughout the ancient world from the second millennium BC until Islamic times. A central objective of the project is to create an electronic database collecting the relevant textual, art-historical, archaeological, ethnographic and linguistic evidence and making it easily accessible on the Internet. In addition, the project organizes annual symposia focusing on different aspects of cultural continuity and evolution in the ancient world.
This is the website of the Melammu Project. It features information about its symposia and proceedings, the Melammu Database, bibliographies of Melammu-related themes and pdf files of relevant articles.
