Apologies for the lack of scholarly updates, there has been a lull in the dissertation research. I’m still waiting for the material to be sent from Jordan (it should happen any day now) and the second week in June I will head out to NJ and get the material that will make up the majority of the dissertation. As for now I am working on a paper for my Cultural Anthropology class. I’m focusing on the difference between Assyrian and Persian policies in Transjordan and how that affected agricultural production. I’ve spent a lot of time researching and trying to get enough material to write something decent. The main problem is finding any anthropological corollaries to use.
