The coverage of the "Reallexikon der Assyriologie und vorderasiatischen Archaologie" embraces those ancient Near Eastern cultures which used the cuneiform script (Mesopotamia, North Syria and Anatolia) together with neighbouring regions in the 4th to the 1st millennia B.C. Entries include important personalities, deities, ancient place names and modern archaeological sites, as well as cultural items and concepts. The articles appear alphabetically under their German heading, but may be in German, English or French. They may be accompanied by illustrations, diagrams and plans.
