Esarhaddon workshop at RAI 60
Organizers: Andrew Knapp (Eisenbrauns), Amitai Baruchi-Unna (Hebrew University of Jerusalem)
Despite reigning just over a decade, Esarhaddon has been the subject of a vast amount of scholarship. His tumultuous rise to power, his alleged paranoia, his focus on expanding into Egypt, and more aspects of his reign continue to fuel debate about the nature of his reign. This workshop is broadly dedicated to Esarhaddon and will accept papers on any aspect of this enigmatic figure and Assyria during his rule.
