Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) is an international journal of ancient Near Eastern studies founded and edited by scholars of different disciplines and approaches (philology, linguistics, history, archaeology), and cooperating in common researches and field projects based on an interdisciplinary perspective.
Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) focuses on the variegated scenario of the emergence, development and crises of the ancient Near East cultures analysed in the plurality of their distinct and intertwining characters, languages, writing and literacy, administration and material culture, arts and politics, economy and trade, ideology and religion. All these lements shaped a civilization which strongly impacted on the history of the ancient world. Exploring this plurality of issues from different perspectives can add to our understanding of the social dynamics and the spatial and chronological trajectories that forged the Near Eastern cultures over a long duration.
Asia Anteriore Antica (AsiAnA) will present studies in different disciplines, Hittitology, Assyriology, Semitistics, History, Archaeology and Art History of the ancient Near East aiming to diffuse the results of researches such as excavation reports, edition of epigraphic sources, studies on philological data, visual arts, archaeology and archaeometry. With the intent of confronting different scientific voices of these disciplines and crossing their traditional borders the journal will supply a handy tool of scholarly information on various subjects, open to the international debate and innovative theoretical issues.
