Imaging the Ghent University Cuneiform Collection

Gent

The University of Ghent (Belgium) keeps some 45 cuneiform tablets that originate from the Susa excavations (chantier A). On November 29 and 30 2012 this small collection was scanned with the Portable Light Dome equipment.

It will allow prof. Katrien De Graef and her team at Ghent to tackle the content of these documents and shed new light (pun intended) on the history of Susa, in particular into the Old Babylonian period to which most of the tablets in this collection date.
