The Melammu Project
The Intellectual Heritage of Assyria and Babylonia in East and West
The Assyrian and Babylonian Intellectual Heritage Project (Melammu) investigates the continuity, transformation and diffusion of Mesopotamian culture throughout the ancient world from the second millennium BC until Islamic times. A central objective of the project is to create an electronic database collecting the relevant textual, art-historical, archaeological, ethnographic and linguistic evidence and making it easily accessible on the Internet. In addition, the project organizes regular symposia focusing on different aspects of cultural continuity and evolution in the ancient world.
The website of the Melammu Project -- which has been online since 2000 and features the database, bibliographies, as well as information about the project and its symposia and proceedings -- has now been completely renewed. Updates include:
- PDFs of all the articles from the Melammu Symposia Proceedings (five volumes so far);
- bibliographies on Melammu-related themes;
- a new lay-out;
- many new entries;
- and a general revision.
Of course, this update does not mean that the database and bibliography are now complete and feature all available Melammu-related material. So we would like to invite everyone to add entries and references to the database and the bibliographies, on any subject that is still missing. This can be done by (preferably) using the forms available in the 'Submit' section of the website, or if that does not work, by sending an e-mail to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org. The same goes for questions or feedback regarding the Melammu Project, its website and its contents. We also encourage everyone to send us pdfs of their published articles with relevance to the Melammu Project for inclusion in our Digital Library, where they can be made available for general download.

I am the coordinator of the Assur-Projekt in Berlin. Your description sounds good. Do you know the annual congress in Vienna? Your project is something you should present there. If you don't know the address I can send it.
