JCS Supplemental Series
The Journal of Cuneiform Studies Supplemental Series (JCSSS) is an annual monograph series dedicated to publishing interpretive studies on the ancient Near East. Each volume is refereed and thoroughly edited.Three such volumes have appeared to date, covering a broad array of issues: the social, economic and historical aspects of the Ur III and late Old Babylonian periods in Mesopotamia and the study of textual variation in Sumerian literature.The fourth volume, which will appear in fall of 2013 will present a collection of innovative studies on aspects of archaeology, archaeometry, bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, and history on the site of Kültepe (ancient Kanesh) that will shed new light on social, political, and economic aspects of the Middle Bronze age ( /c/. 2000-1700 years BCE) in central Anatolia (present-day Turkey), but also in Upper Mesopotamia (Northern Syria and Iraq). This presentation reveals the broad goal of the new Kültepe archaeological team, which is dedicated to developing a new synthetic research paradigm to investigate issues of trade, colonialism, ethnicity, art, identity, and urbanization in the Near East.
