Vom Verlag:

This book contains revised versions of papers presented at a special session that took place during the 2012 meeting of ASOR, dedicated to the celebrated site of Kueltepe, the urban centre of the second millennium BCE state of Kanesh in Anatolia. The material remains and the more than 23,500 cuneiform tablets unearthed at the site shed light on social, political, and economic aspects of the Middle Bronze age (MBA; c. 2000-1700 years BC) in central Anatolia (present-day Turkey), but also in Upper Mesopotamia (Northern Syria and Iraq). The rich textual record provides ample information on a very sophisticated supraregional market economy, representing one of the best-documented historical cases of long-distance trade in the ancient world. Although the site was first excavated in 1893, followed by intermittent excavations between 1906 and 2005, modern scientific and interdisciplinary excavations have only been undertaken since 2006. The new scientific research at Kueltepe/Kanesh has already begun amassing new data and providing us with a unique opportunity to generate new perspectives and to challenge previous models and assumptions about, for example, trade, colonialism, ethnicity, art, religious ideas, identity, and patterns of social, political, and economic organization in the Near East during the Middle Bronze Age. A primary goal of this special JCSS volume is to integrate the work of scholars in archaeology, archaeometry, bioarchaeology, geoarchaeology, and history on the site of Kueltepe to develop a new synthetic research paradigm for investigating issues of trade, colonialism, ethnicity, art, identity, and urbanization in the Near East in a unified fashion.

After receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard University, Atici joined UNLV in 2007 and founded the UNLV Zooarchaeology Laboratory in 2009. His research covers the full spectrum of human-animal interactions from hunting to taming to large-scale, industrial production of animals in specialized pastoralist societies in Southwest Asia. His current research program in Turkey comprises active field work at the Pre-Pottery Neolithic (PPNA) Kortik Tepe, Neolithic Ugurlu Hoyuk, and Early through Late Bronze Age Kaman-Kalehoyuk and Kultepe-Kanesh. Atici has published on Epipalaeolithic forager adaptations, food provisioning systems in early complex societies, and the relationships between food and ethnicity. Atici is committed to advancing zooarchaeology through fostering international collaboration, data sharing, and best practices. Fikri Kulakoglu is Professor of Archaeology in the Department of Near Eastern Archaeology at Ankara University. His career in archaeology spans over thirty years in Turkey during which time he has participated in numerous fieldwork and directed excavations at Saraga Hoyuk and Kalehoyuk in Gaziantep, and surveys in Sanliurfa in southeast Anatolia. Since 2006 he has been the director of the Kultepe Project where he leads a large multinational and interdisciplinary team to excavate the ancient state of Kanesh, the capital of the Old Assyrian Trading Colony period in Anatolia where more than 23,000 tablets have been unearthed. In addition, he has conducted archaeological surveys in the same area, Kayseri Province in central Anatolia, since 2008, aiming to identify major trading settlements and trade routes around Kanesh. In 2010, he co-edited a book, Anatolia's Prologue: Kultepe Kanesh-Karum, that compiled a large corpus of scholarly work on the cuneiform archives from Kanesh. Gojko Barjamovic is Lecturer on Assyriology at the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations at Harvard University. His research focuses on ancient economy and states. He also publishes works on the social and intellectual history of the ancient Near East, and he is an epigrapher for the Kultepe excavations in Turkey. He is the author of A Historical Geography of Anatolia in the Old Assyrian Colony Period (Copenhagen 2011) and co-author (with Thomas Hertel and Mogens Trolle Larsen) of Ups and Downs at Kanesh - Observations on Chronology, History and Society in the Old Assyrian {eriod (Leiden 2012). He is currently co-editing (with Kim Ryholt) two studies of canon and libraries in the ancient world: Libraries Before Alexandria and Canonicity and Identity Formation, and working on two archival studies of cuneiform texts: Old Assyrian Texts in the Yale Babylonian Collection, and The Archive of Kultepe 1994, House I. Andrew Fairbairn is an Australian-based archaeobotanist. Trained at University College London's Institute of Archaeology, he has published over sixty papers and books on projects in the UK, Hungary, Italy, Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Papua New Guinea, and Australia dating from 50,000 years of age to sites from the early twentieth century. After working for The Museum of London, Cambridge University, and the Australian University, he joined The University of Queensland in Brisbane as Lecturer in 2006 and from January 2014 is studying the ancient development of global plant trade as an Australian Research Council Future Fellow. Fairbairn's work focuses on seeds, fruits, wood and tubers used by ancient peoples and gives an insight into the ancient diet, economy, and environment of our ancestors.
