New Journal “Journal of Ancient History” with (for now) free access – including important article on the current state of Ancient Near Eastern Studies

The new “Journal of Ancient History” which is put out by de Gruyter has put online the first issue of what appears to be an excellent journal. As of now (and I doubt this will last for long…), the articles in the first issue can be accessed for free online!

This first issue includes an excellent paper by Mark Van de Mieroop (Columbia), in which he surveys his understanding of the current state of Ancient Near Eastern historical studies (“Recent Trends in the Study of Ancient Near Eastern History: Some Reflections”) – with a particular emphasis on the study of Mesopotamian history.

Well worth reading – check it out!
