Assyrian Landscapes Research Group
 

HISTORY AND AIMS

Assyrian Landscapes Research Group is an informal cooperation initiative founded by Jason Ur, Daniele Morandi Bonacossi and Rafał Koliński in 2012, and joined by Peter Pfälzner in 2013. Its aim it to carry out the field research according to similar methodology and to provide a platform for rapid exchange of results and ideas between cooperating projects.


 

ALRG WORKING MEETINGS

The first meeting of the group took place in Udine, in March 2013, and was attended by Jason Ur and Rafał Koliński. The main reason of this meeting was presentation and comparison of the results of initial field season of each project.
 In the following years, no working meeting took place, partly due to logistic reasons (meeting in Europe) and partly due to temporal suspension of fieldwork by some of the projects as a result of IS inclusion (meeting in Kurdistan). 
During the 10th ICAANE in Vienna in 2016, attended by all the directors of ARLG directors the idea of the working group meeting was refreshed. As a result, the meeting, organized by the UGZAR project, was scheduled to May 2017. 
It will be held in Poznań at the Faculty of History building (Collegium Historicum Novum), at the Morasko Campus.
