The Arms and Armor of the Ancient Near East was produced for the Higgins Armory Museum of Worcester to study and contextualize its holdings from the Ancient and Classical period. Two terms went towards researching the history, culture, and military tactics of Greece, Egypt, and Mesopotamia between 3000 B.C. - 300 B.C. One was spent photographing 155 museum holdings from these areas. During the final term we created a website using this information for display on the museum's official site.
