1997-98 ANNUAL REPORT

Robert D. Biggs

Robert D. Biggs continued his study and publication in the area of Babylonian medicine. Having been appointed a member of a Ph.D. dissertation committee at the University of Copenhagen for a dissertation dealing with several specific chapters of the Babylonian scholarly compendium of omens from the internal organs of sheep (generally known as extispicy), he is once again immersing himself is this rather specialized branch of Assyriological research. His membership on this committee is yet another example of cooperation between Oriental Institute faculty and staff and their colleagues at the University of Copenhagen. He once again participated in the Oriental Institute Oriental Rug Symposium, this time with an illustrated lecture entitled "The Qashqaºi and Shiraz Weavings of Iran."
