RECOMMENDED READING ON THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST

A Guide to Introductory Readings on the Ancient Near Eastern World

A Collaborative Production of

The Research Archives of the Oriental Institute

The Oriental Institute Museum

The Oriental Institute Museum Education Program


Recommended Reading is a guide to introductory readings on the peoples and cultures of the ancient Near East. Some of the material included here (Ancient Mesopotamia) was originally published as the Resource Guide included with one of the three volumes (Life in Ancient Egypt, Life in Ancient Nubia, Life in Ancient Mesopotamia) of the Guides for Teachers Based on the Collections and Resources of the Oriental Institute Museum, University of Chicago (Chicago, 1996), produced by the Museum Education Program with the generous support of a grant from the Polk Bros. Foundation. We have made some additions and corrections, and slightly altered the structure of that Resources Guide for the purposes of providing this information on-line, and we expect to add additional material as needed. The Egyptian and Nubian lists have been developed by Emily Teeter in the course of many years of teaching and lecturing and will change as new material is published. In addition, we are planning to add more lists as we identify topics of interest to the public. We welcome your suggestions.

This on-line version was coordinated and processed into HTML by Charles E. Jones, and is a publication of the Research Archives of the Oriental Institute.
