This interdisciplinary study offers a systematic approach to ancient archival documents from the Near East, the Mycenean world, and classical Greece. The contributions aim to achieve a richer understanding of archival documents--by addressing questions of formal aspects of creating, writing, and storing ancient documents--and to discover how concepts of record-keeping were adapted by different ancient societies in the ancient world.
