Summary
Archaeology, Artifacts and Antiquities of the Ancient Near East follows the evolution of Oscar White Muscarella's scholarly work and interests and is divided into several categories of interrelated fields. The first part deals primarily excavations and associated artifacts, issues in ancient geography and the identification of ancient sites in northwest Iran, the author's research involving the culture and chronology of the Phrygian capital at Gordion in Anatolia, and the chronology and Iranian culture relations of a site in the Emirate of Sharjah. Part two is wide-ranging and includes chapters on Aegean and ancient Near Eastern cultural and political interconnections, the role of fibulae in revealing cultural and chronological matters, and the gender-determined usage of parasols and their recognition in excavated contexts.
