At Nottingham, research on the prehistoric Middle East addresses key questions of past cultural, economic, and technological development. Our projects integrate field and laboratory studies in the investigation of the origin and expansion of farming societies, the elaboration of subsistence techniques, the growth of cities and towns, advances in ancient technologies, and the long-distance exchange systems that linked the societies of the ancient Middle East with each other and the wider world.

Our principal research projects include:
