The Conquest of Assyria tells what must surely be one of the most romantic tales of archaeological endeavour. The great cities and ancient palaces of Mesopotamia had lain buried for over two millenia, and were all but forgotten, half remembered in the Hebrew Bible and Classical texts. This volume records the dramatic finds, the decipherment of the cuneiform system of writing and the rediscovery of a lost civilisation.

English summary: This volume endeavours to describe and comparatively discuss the formation of academic disciplines in Austria through their concrete research practice, focussing on the examples of music research, art history, geography, geology, ancient history and archaeology, oriental studies and historical research. Some of these disciplines deal with (historical) processes, some lie on the boundary between humanities and the natural sciences. This interdisciplinary approach seeks to make a contribution to research on 19th-century Austrian scientific practice that has also significantly shaped today's research landscape. German description: Der Band unternimmt den Versuch, die Ausformung wissenschaftlicher Disziplinen in Osterreich uber ihre konkrete Forschungspraxis zu beschreiben und damit vergleichend zur Diskussion zu stellen. Hierfur wurden exemplarisch die Musikforschung, Kunstgeschichte, Geographie, Geologie, Alte Geschichte und Archaologie, Orientalistik und die Geschichtsforschung in den Blick genommen: Einige der hier anvisierten Disziplinen nehmen (historische) Prozesse in den Blick, einige bewegen sich an der Grenze zwischen Geistes- und Naturwissenschaften. Im Rahmen einer interdisziplinaren Annaherung soll somit ein Beitrag zur Erforschung der osterreichischen Wissenschaftspraxis des 19. Jahrhunderts geleistet werden, die auch die aktuelle Forschungslandschaft deutlich gepragt hat.

The ancient Anatolian city of Kanesh (present-day Kültepe, Turkey) was a continuously inhabited site from the early Bronze Age through Roman times. The city flourished c.2000–1750 BCE as an Old Assyrian trade outpost and the earliest attested commercial society in world history. More than 23,000 elaborate clay tablets from private merchant houses provide a detailed description of a system of long-distance trade that reached from central Asia to the Black Sea region and the Aegean. The texts record common activities such as trade between Kanesh and the city state of Assur, and between Assyrian merchants and local people. The tablets tell us about the economy as well as the culture, language, religion, and private lives of individuals we can identify by name, occupation, and sometimes even personality. This book presents an in-depth account of this vibrant Bronze Age Anatolian society, revealing the daily lives of its inhabitants.
