In July 2004, a number of scholars gathered for a conference on Gilgamesh and the World of Assyria, at The University of Sydney. This volume of conference papers features contributions by Andrew George, the key note speaker, and established scholars such as J. D. Forest, V .A. Hurowitz, G. A. Rendsburg, N. Weeks and I. M. Young, together with those of other local scholars. The chief theme is the Gilgamesh epic, but interesting suggestions are made concerning the importance of that epic for biblical studies and Assyriology in general.
