Description:

The quite recent discoveries of text archives at the western Euphratian archaeological site of Meskene, the ancient city of Emar, only some three decades ago, can hardly be overestimated, as far as their importance for the reconstruction of the late second millennium chronology and history of Northern Syria during the hegemony of the Hittite Empire is concerned. . The Emar texts provide us with numerous peculiarities of a Late Bronze Age urban society which, for most of the time being, remained under control of two regional powers, at first the Mittani Empire and, after the Hittite conquest of Northern Syria, the Great Kings of Hatti and their representatives in this area, the kings of Karkemish. . The texts give proof of kingship and the existence of two successive local dynasties which amount total to seven generations? (D. Sürenhagen, Introduction).The 17 essays in this volume are devoted to ?Chronology and History? (Part I) and ?Landscape, Law and Religion? (Part II). Among others, Y. Cohen and L. d'Alfonso analyze ?The Duration of the Emar Archives and the Relative and Absolute Chronology of the City?, D. E. Fleming studies ?Emar's Scribal Traditions against the Chronology of Late Bronze History?; L. Mori seeks ?Information on Landscape from the Emar Legal Texts? and S. Démare-Lafont studies the relationship of ?The King and the Diviner at Emar. Bookseller Inventory #
