The first fascicle of the annual journal on Polish excavations carried out in the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East chronicles Polish archaeological presence in the region, from Cyprus to Sudan and from Egypt to Armenia, in the seasons of 2012 and 2013. The excavated data is presented in the form of general reports and detailed studies encompassing different fields of research, from art history to the nature sciences, supplemented with a brief chronicle of other projects of the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology University of Warsaw not represented in the Reports section.
The second part of the volume carries 11 study articles focusing on different aspects of research into the history, economy, culture and material culture of the Ancient Near East, starting with the results of a survey of epigones of the Levallois tradition in the Nile Valley and discussing early animal and plant economies in Ancient Syria based on macrofossils as well as iconographic studies and a series of articles on coins, glass, beads, faience figurines based on finds from PCMA excavations. Completing the list is a text giving new insights into Nubian archery and a review of Indian steel, a forgotten commodity on the great trade routes.
