London Centre for the Ancient Near East

"The purpose of the London Centre for the Ancient Near East is to promote London as a centre for the study of the ancient Near East: the geographical areas of Mesopotamia, the Levant, Egypt and the Sudan, the Arabian peninsula, Iran, Anatolia and the Aegean world, as well as the Indus valley and other neighbouring regions. It aims to create a Centre to establish closer relations between colleagues with interests in the Ancient Near East on the staff of the various academic institutions in London; to act as a focus for all people with the same interests who are otherwise based in London or who are visiting; to publicize as widely as possible all activities in London relating to the Ancient Near East. In particular it seeks to produce for members a periodic list of public lectures, seminars and other events in London that bear on Ancient Near Eastern topics; to act as a forum in London for seminars, conferences and international meetings; to campaign to make University of London libraries more accessible for non-university scholars; and to raise generally in London public perception of the Ancient Near East."
