As of late, there has been great consternation about the future of antiquities and archaeological expeditions within Iraq, largely due to political upheaval and military conflict in the area. With that in mind, the H-Museum mailing list has assembled a host of materials gleaned from their own discussion boards and scholarly resources that will help give visitors some sense of the breadth and importance of the material reminders of ancient civilizations located within Iraq's borders. The collection is divided into five primary sections, including a compilation of recent articles and documents that deal with the protection of cultural property and details about ongoing archaeological projects within the country. Two of the most important links on the site lead to the virtual online library of Iraq's history at the University of Kansas and the resources for Near Eastern archaeology provided by Arizona State University.
