The Assyriology Institute at the Heidelberg University provides a dynamic research environment: long-standing expertise in the decipherment of original cuneiform texts goes hand in hand with the research on the materiality of texts, which accords equal importance to both the text and the medium which carries it.

The Uruk-Warka Collection in Heidelberg presents a unique opportunity of closely following the millennia long history of the Ancient Near East by studying original artefacts. The variety of research interests of the professors, scholars and doctoral candidates based in Heidelberg, as well as the international character of the Institute are its distinguishing features.
