Research Projects

CAMNE supports a wide range of research projects, spanning prehistory to the present day and covering an area that stretches from the western Mediterranean to central Asia.

We have particular areas of research strength in the study of Greek and Mesopotamian cultural interactions, religious practice in ancient Egypt, cultural and religious life in the Roman Near East, ancient Syria-Palestine and the archaeology of the Arabian Peninsula.

The Anatolian Hieroglyphic script

Our staff members in Archaeology have current fieldwork projects in Syria, Iran, Italy and Spain, and our postgraduate members are involved in excavations and surveys at various Mediterranean and Near Eastern sites.

Closer to home, we are fortunate to be able to draw upon the collections of the Oriental Museum in Durham, which has an Egyptian collection of worldwide importance and significant holdings of cuneiform tablets and other artefacts from the Ancient Near East.
