      The Mediterranean's Iron Age period was one of its most dynamic eras. Stimulated by the movement of individuals and groups on an unprecedented scale, the first half of the first millennium BCE witnesses the development of Mediterranean-wide practices, including related writing systems, common features of urbanism, and shared artistic styles and techniques, . This volume explores early complex society and nascent urbanism, based in studies of Mesopotamia during the fifth–fourth millennia bc. Urbanism in the Near East has traditionally been located in late fourthmillennium bc southern Mesopotamia (south Iraq); but recent excavations and surveys in northeast Syria and southeast Turkey have identified a distinctively northern . distance trade networks, and concentrated populations. This non-centralized economic urbanism contrasts with the strongly centralized political urbanism found in many other parts of the ancient world. “Heterarchy”, currently a fashionable term for non-hierarchical social complexity, is a key concept in the book.
