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.

Archive

The branch office posesses an extensive study collection of archaeological finds from Uruk-Warka. Small finds, ceramics and test materials were received by Heidelberg during the 50s and 60s as part of the official division of finds with the Iraq Museum in Baghdad. The collection is curated by the University of Heidelberg and open to the general public.

Publications

From 1960 to 2006 appeared the Baghdader Mitteilungen(Baghdad Disclosures). Since 2007 they were incorporated as fascicle into the newly created annual "Zeitschrift für Orient-Archäologie". The Baghdader Forschungen(Baghdad Research) series is produced at irregular intervals. Ausgrabungen in Uruk-Warka, Endberichte, Endberichte (Excavations in Uruk-Warka, Final Reports) will be published as a further series.
