Glenn Schwartz is a Near Eastern archaeologist whose research focuses on the emergence and early history of urban societies in Syria and Mesopotamia. His current field project at Tell Umm el-Marra, western Syria, concentrates on the problems of origins, collapse and regeneration of an early urban center. The results from the site, inhabited ca. 2700-1200 BC with some later reoccupation, include a remarkable intact “royal” cemetery from the Early Bronze Age, ca. 2300 BC as well as diverse data from many other periods.
