Sacred space, its use, development, and meaning, is a major theme in archaeology and ancient history, and productive of research questions relating to religious identity, performance and practice, change, innovation, and dissolution. This series seeks to integrate the study of archaeology, texts, architecture, and religion, creating a forum for interdisciplinary and comparative studies of landscapes and domains of evidence that are normally treated separately. The series is open to thematic, cross-regional and diachronic studies, as well as specific works within ancient history, classical archaeology, Egyptology, Assyriology, archaeology, and philology that treat sacred space and its material culture in regions encompassed by the designation ‘Ancient Near East’. Studies that seek to make issues and questions from one area accessible and thought-provoking to scholars in another are welcome.
