Since the excavations in the Assad Lake region (Syria) and a large number of rescue projects in Syria, Turkey and Iraq, Upper Mesopotamia has been the focus of a wide interdisciplinary research. ‘About Subartu. Studies Devoted to Upper Mesopotamia’ constitutes an attempt at a wide-scope evaluation of these historical and archaeological extensive activities. Historians, epigraphers, geomorphologists, art historians and archaeologists contribute to produce together a balanced account of considerable new evidence from the Neolithic period to the Iron Age. ‘About Subartu’ is a collective work, including papers by Trevor Watkins, Danielle Stordeur, Toshio Matsutani & Yoshihiro Nishiaki, Stuart Campbell, Régis Vallet, Friederike Bachmann, Michael Roaf, Tony Wilkinson, Lutz Martin, Bertille Lyonnet, Marcella Frangipane, Marco Bonechi, Thomas McClellan, Lorenzo Nigro, Mirjo Salvini, Olivier Rouault, Alfonso Archi, Maria Giovanna Biga, Walther Sallaberger, Amelia Catagnoti, Rita Dolce, Maria Vittoria Tonietti, Pelio Fronzaroli, Nicolò Marchetti, Greta Jans & Joachim Bretschneider, Giorgio Buccellati & Marilyn Kelly-Buccellati, Diederik Meijer, Maria Grazia Masetti-Rouault, Peter M.M.G. Akkermans, Manfred Dietrich & Walter Mayer, Raymond-Jacques Tournay and Ruth Mayer-Opificius.
