Baghdad Branch of the Orient Department

The Baghdad Branch was founded in 1955 as the Baghdad Department and has been a part of the Orient Department since 1996. With its establishment, a constant, and very fruitful tradition of German archaeological research in Iraq has been persued and administrated. It's working focus encompasses Mesopotamian cultures from prehistoric times to the Islamic Middle Ages. The Branch is currently directed from Berlin. Since 2003 the focus of the work lies on the preservation of cultural heritage of Iraq. On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Baghdad branch in 2005 the book "50 Jahre Forschungen im Irak 1955-2005" was published.
