Cuneiform Collections

Since their discovery some 150 years ago cuneiform tablets have been discovered in both controlled and un-controlled excavations, and have been dispersed across the globe. Prior to the 1930's cuneiform tablets excavated in the Ancient Near East could be easily removed from the countries of origin as objects for study, collection, or sale, adding to the huge numbers of tablets in public and private collections in many countries.

In an attempt to virtually reassemble the scattered textual heritage of the Ancient Near East, we list here the collections of cuneiform tablets know to us.
