1994-95 ANNUAL REPORT

J. A. Brinkman

During the academic year 1994/95, John Brinkman completed a series of twelve articles for the Reallexikon der Assyriologie on topics of Neo-Babylonian history, including the first detailed study of Nabopolassar in more than seventy years. (Nabopolassar was the founder of the so-called Chaldean dynasty and father of Nebuchadnezzar II, known from the Bible). He also finished a treatment of the geography of Babylonia at the time of the Neo-Assyrian Empire (1000-600 b.c.), which deals with the ancient river regimes in southern Mesopotamia and their effect on population movements and agricultural patterns. His continuing research into Mesopotamian historiography was represented by a short essay on the Mesopotamian chronicle tradition (submitted to the Journal of the American Oriental Society ) and by a paper on "Expressions of Time in Assyrian Royal Narrative" given at the national meeting of the American Oriental Society (Salt Lake City, March 1995).
