The British School of Archaeology in Iraq

The British Institute for the Study of Iraq (Gertrude Bell Memorial) was established as the British School of Archaeology in Iraq on January 14, 1932 to promote, support and undertake research in Iraq and neighbouring countries. At its Annual General Meeting on 12 December 2007 its members approved a change in name to the British Institute for the Study of Iraq to reflects its widening remit. The purpose for which the Institute is established is to advance research and public education relating to Iraq and the neighbouring countries in anthropology, archaeology, geography, history, philology and related disciplines within the arts, humanities and social sciences.
