Coinciding with the major exhibition, Mesopotamia: Inventing Our World, we are proud to present Explore Mesopotamia which brings together world experts in a series of informative and entertaining lectures delving into the archaeology, art and mystery of ancient Mesopotamia.
On Thursday September 12, 2013, Dr. Harrison discussed the exciting discoveries of the University of Toronto's ongoing excavations at ancient Tayinat in Turkey, and what they reveal about the nature of Mesopotamia's cultural and historical influence on its ancient Near Eastern neighbours.
Dr. Harrison is a Professor of Syro-Palestinian Archaeology and Chair of the Department of Near and Middle Eastern Civilizations at the University of Toronto.
