The 2014 exhibition, "Assyria to Iberia at the Dawn of the Classical Age" at The Metropolitan Museum of Art offered a comprehensive overview of art and cultural exchange in an era of vast imperial and mercantile expansion. This book features twenty-seven essays based on the symposium and lectures that took place in conjunction with the exhibition. Written by an international group of scholars from a wide variety of disciplines, they include reports of new archeological discoveries, illuminating interpretations of material culture, and innovative investigations of literary, historical, and political aspects of the interactions that shaped art and culture in the early first millennium B.C. This volume of diverse perspectives explores the cultural encounters of populations interacting through trade, travel, and migration, as well as war and displacement, in the ancient world. Assyria to Iberia: Art and Culture in the Iron Age contributes significantly to our understanding of the epoch- making exchanges that spanned the Near East and the Mediterranean and exerted immense influence in the centuries that followed.
