Product Overview

This catalogue makes available to scholars more than 600 complete or fragmentary stone vessels from the Ancient Near East in the rich collections of the British Museum. In common with much other material in the British Museum, many of the pieces were acquired in the nineteenth century, often from excavations, and have therefore an added importance. Some of the pieces have been published before but the vast majority are presented here for the first time. Much of this material is of the type that is often overlooked in museum collections, but although not glamorous it is of great value for studies of material culture, trading connections, technology, and so on. It is therefore expected that the present volume will prove to be an indispensable tool for archaeologists, historians and art historians alike.
