The University of Ghent (Belgium) keeps some 45 cuneiform tablets that originate from the Susa excavations (chantier A). One of the IAP project goals sketched in Workpackage VI is to allow the in house expertise on imaging Mesopotamian heritage to be used by partners outside the network to facilitate research in Greater Mesopotamian studies. In that regard, on November 29 and 30 this small collection was scanned with the Portable Light Dome equipment.

It will allow prof. Katrien De Graef and her team at Ghent to tackle the content of these documents and shed new light on the history of Susa, in particular into the Old Babylonian period to which most of the tablets in this collection date.
