Institute for Cultural Studies of Ancient Iraq

The Institute for Cultural Studies of Ancient Iraq was established in 1976 at our Machida Campus.

With the principal aim of studying ancient Eurasian cultures centered on the region that is now Iraq, in recent years the Institute has conducted fieldwork in Iran, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon, has participated in the UNESCO project for restoration of Iraq's cultural treasures, and is engaged in various other joint research projects, interdisciplinary research, and international exchanges. The results of these activities are made available in a variety of publications, including the Institute's own journal, Al-Rafidan.

In 2001 the Institute conducted the third survey of the archaeological site at Kish, and in 2003 conducted an assessment of the damage to the Iraq National Museum and other cultural artifacts as a result of the Iraq War. The war has forced a suspension of other activities in Iraq, but the Institute is assisting in training Iraqi researchers in neighboring Jordan.
