Excavations at Tell Ali al-Hajj, Rumeilah: A Bronze-Iron Age Settlement on Syrian Euphrates
edited by Keiko Ishida, Makiko Tsumura, and Hidetoshi Tsumoto
After thirty years of our museum's and collaborators' investigation, the final excavation report of Tell Ali al-Hajj (also called Tell Rumeilah) is now available!
This volume presents many important results on the architecture, artifacts (ceramics, clay objects, house models, metal, bone, and stone objects), and the basic chronology of this small, but long-inhabited site. Combined with the archaeological findings, additional scientific analyses including AMS carbon datings provide further insights into this village on the Euphrates. In this sense this volume will contribute to the understanding not only of a Bronze-Iron Age local community but of Mesopotamian history on the whole.

The excavations at Tell Mastuma, northwestern Syria, were carried out by the Ancient Orient Museum from 1980 to 1995. Our researches at the settlement illuminated thick layers of occupation from Neolithic and Early Bronze Age up to the Achaemenid Period. This final report primarily focuses on a small Iron Age town and many aspects of its material culture, including scientific analyses.

Sculptures of Commagene Kingdom
edited by Katsumi Tanabe, with contributions by Akira Hori, Saeko Miyashita, and Mitsuru Haga.
The Kingdom of Commagene was a small Hellenistic dynasty centred around ancient Samosata, Eastern Anatolia (modern Turkey), from the second century BC to the first century AD. Numerous Greco-Persian sculpture reliefs remained more or less intact at the sites like Nemrut Dağı and Arsameia am Nymphaios, which in 1986/1987 the Ancient Orient Museum attempted to document photographically in light of art-historical perspectives. The volume contains many detailed photographs mostly in monochrome.
