Archaeology, Artifacts and Antiquities of the Ancient Near East" follows the evolution of Oscar White Muscarella s scholarly work and interests and is divided into several categories of interrelated fields.
When asked by Jennifer Pavelko of Brill USA to compile a volume of my past articles, on the model of the two volumes of Irene Winters outstanding scholarship published by Brill, I was of course flattered. And then began the difficult task of decision making. Given the limitation of approximately forty articles to be selected by me, I had first to examine my curriculum vita and make a list of which to choose. When I reached fifty articles I was obliged to refocus my mind and eliminate ten of them. This exercise was fortunate, I believe, for it forced me not merely to focus on works that to my mind reflect a diachronic compendium of my decades of writing, but concomitantly, and as objectively as possible, to contemplate the very nature and thrusts of my work as a whole. The scope of my research and writing has widened from the pure archaeological work of excavation reports and artifact analyses to include a sharpened interest in the vast number of unexcavated antiquitiesand, as I came to realize, of forgeriesas well as associated cultural phenomena that often run contrary to archaeological goals.
