The Near East Archeology is dedicated to the archeology of the ancient Near East. Geographically, the work area extends from Afghanistan or Pakistan to Turkey and across the Arabian Peninsula. In terms of time, it covers the span from the beginnings of human settlements to the Islamic conquest, a total of around 10,000 years.

Taken together, this very large area of ??work is considered under the heading of the Ancient Near East. The Near East Archeology at the Free University of Berlin is the archeology of the Ancient Near East. It opens up the remnants of the material culture of the ancient Near East as historical sources and processes them in such a way that statements can also be made about the economic, social, political, religious, cultural, intellectual and art-historical aspects of the ancient cultures. The students are introduced to the archaeological-hermeneutic methods of Near Eastern archeology. During the course of the course, the Near Eastern Archeology provides an understanding of methods and theories as well as basic knowledge of geography, history, sites and monuments of the ancient Near East.
