On the 29th of May 2013 the IAP Greater Mesopotamia organized its first annual meeting of phase VII of the network. At the Royal Museums of Art and History coordinator prof. dr. Eric Gubel invited all national and international partners to join this event and report on their work of the past year and discus future research plans. The meeting was, as it should for a network focusing on the ancient Near East, preceded by an oriental (Lebanese) lunch.
