Event Details

Join T.J. Wilkinson, Professor of Archaeology, Department of Archaeology, Durham University and Braidwood Visiting Scholar for 2012-13 for Canals, Kings and Hydraulic Landscapes in the Ancient Near East: An Archaeological Perspective.

The management, manipulation and distribution of water is central to the development of Mesopotamian civilization. This lecture examines the development of hydraulic systems in the Near East and the role played by scholars from the Oriental Institute in their detection and analysis. Since the time of Breasted, remote sensing has been a key tool for recognizing ancient water supply networks and the presentation also takes advantage of the wide range of remote sensing methods that have become available in recent years.
