Ancient Near Eastern Art

Ancient Near Eastern Art: An Introduction
A clear and easy-to-read introduction to a wide range of artifacts and artistic styles from the Ancient Near East, touching on the civilizations of Mesopotamia and Sumer, Palestine, Phoenecia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Persia.


Ancient Near Eastern Culture & History

Ancient Near East by About.com
About.com’s (formerly the Mining Co.’s) history pages are a good place to begin the study of a topic, because they are geared for the general reader rather than the historian.

Exploring Ancient World Cultures: The Near East
A well-done introduction to the history and culture of the Near East, with links. Some comments about the Hebrews borrowing from the Sumerians can of course be taken with a grain of salt.


The above pages will get you started on many fascinating hours of research and discovery regarding all aspects of ancient Near Eastern culture and history. However, if you need additional site suggestions for further help and more specific research, please visit History on the Internet: Ancient Near East, where you can find many more high quality links.
