Studies in the SUBARTU series, founded in 1995, take an interdisciplinary approach to Upper Mesopotamia from the Lower Palaeolithic up to the end of the Iron Age. Drawing on fields as diverse as archaeology, geography, environmental studies, history, epigraphy, and heritage, the series brings scholars from different disciplines into dialogue and opens up new approaches to our understanding of a region that has for millennia been at the crossroads between different cultures and civilizations. The series takes an open and exploratory approach to a geographical area that encompasses Iraq, Syria, and Southern Turkey, and which forms a bridge linking Mesopotamia to the Mediterranean, while its broad time frame encourages a focus on long-term change, and a reappraisal of established chronologies for this region. Together with its companion series LEMA, ARATTA, ARAXES and OXUS, SUBARTU forms part of the ARWA collection associated with the International Association for Archaeological Research in Western & Central Asia.
