Description:

A wealth of original text material from the Ur III period provides insight into kitchen gardens in ancient Mesopotamia. These gardens played a vital role in Mesopotamian society, as they were a major component in the supply of food. The complexity involved in cultivating such gardens is demonstrated in particular by texts on date palm cultivation that hail primarily from Umma. The relevant texts cover diverse subjects and therefore also shed light on planting methods, the selection of botanic species, and the usage of the produce. Besides fruit, vegetables, and herbs, there is also evidence that wood was harvested in such gardens, which would have been of great importance in Southern Mesopotamia as the region is poor in wood. The personnel that worked such gardens are differentiated, but the sources also demonstrate that they were always strongly dependent on the ubiquitous public administration represented by palace and temples.

About this title:

Synopsis: Der in der Ur III-Zeit durch reiches Urkundenmaterial gut dokumentierte Nutzgarten hatte eine wichtige Funktion in der altmesopotamischen Gesellschaft, da er zur Sicherstellung eines grossen Teils der Nahrungsmittelversorgung der Bevolkerung diente. Von der Komplexitat seiner Bewirtschaftung zeugen vor allem die vornehmlich aus Umma uberlieferten Texte zum Dattelpalmanbau. Die vielfaltig thematisierten Urkunden erlauben zudem Einblicke in die Art der Bepflanzung der Garten, die Auswahl der angepflanzten botanischen Arten sowie die Nutzung der erwirtschafteten Ertrage. Neben Obst, Gemuse und Gewurzen erfolgte auch der Anbau von Nutzholz in Garten, welcher fur den holzarmen Suden Mesopotamiens sicherlich von grosser Bedeutung war. Das Gartenpersonal zeigt sich differenziert, aber immer abhangig von der zu dieser Zeit allgegenwartigen offentlichen Administration in Gestalt von Palast und Tempel.
