Astonishing Resource for Orientalists – Link of the Day

Anyone interested in the history of the Ancient Near East should run-not-walk to the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, where, I have just learned, a number of impressive catalogs from various curated exhibitions are available for free download in PDF format.

I started out with Visible Language; Invention of Writing in the Ancient Middle East and Beyond, and I can see this resource is going to keep me busy for some time!
