Dear Colleague,

The Institut für Vorderasiatische Altertumskunde, Freie Universität Berlin, in cooperation with the Orient-Abteilung, Deutsches Archäologisches Institut, and the Vorderasiatisches Museum, Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, takes pleasure in inviting scholars to convene for 4ICAANE at the Freie Universität Berlin on 29 March – 3 April 2004. After Rome, Copenhagen and Paris, the ICAANE will meet in Germany for the first time. The programme of the 4ICAANE invites colleagues who specialise in the archaeology of the Ancient Near East including prehistorians, historians, art historians, anthropologists, philologists and natural scientists to contribute to one of the four main themes, the workshops and / or the posters. There will be neither a regional emphasis, nor a chronological limit but it is suggested that the Ancient Near East may be concluded with the collapse of the Sasanian empire.

4ICAANE will continue the tradition in offering four main themes to be organised in four sections of the conference. In addition there will be room for poster presentations, workshops, sectional meetings and social activities. An introductory invited paper will start each section. Invited observers will cover each section to present a résumé of each main theme on the last day of the conference.

Yours sincerely
