Beschreibung

Herve Reculeau. Climate, Environment and Agriculture in Assyria in the 2nd Half of the 2nd Millennium BCE. Studia Chaburensia, Vol. 2. XVI, 290 pages, 39 ill., 42 Tab, 1 Map.

This book is the result of a two-year post-doctoral research conducted at the Cluster of Excellence TOPOI under the direction of Prof. Dr. Hartmut Kühne. It focuses on potential environmental changes and or climatic fluctuations, and their impact on the agrarian economy of Assyria during the 13th to 10th centuries BCE. Being intersected in two parts the first three chapters present a state-of-the-art compendium of palaeo-ecosystems and climatic as well as archaeological conditions of Upper Mesopotamia during the Late Holocene, i.e. the 2nd Millennium BCE, while the last four chapters analyze the cuneiform evidence of the 13th century BCE of cereal yields in relation to dry-farming and/ or irrigation, field locations, productivity, and metrology. It is suggested that the overall poor yields documented at Middle Assyrian cities like Assur and Kar-Tukulti-Ninurta or provincial towns like Dur-Katlimmu, Harbe, Tall Sabi Abyad or Sibanniba cannot be interpreted in terms of an opposition between dry-farming vs. irrigation agriculture, but rather reflect the poor efficiency of Assyrian agriculture during an arid episode which prevailed in Upper Mesopotamia in the whole Late Bronze Age.
