Cambridge Scholars Publishing is pleased to announce the publication of The Land of Fertility II: The Southeast Mediterranean from the Bronze Age to the Muslim Conquest, edited by Łukasz Miszk and Maciej Wacławik.

The contributions in this volume are based on papers presented at the second international conference on “The Land of Fertility”, held at the Institute of Archaeology at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, in June 2015. This event was part of a cycle of conferences concerning the area of the so-called “Fertile Crescent”, a region in the south-east Mediterranean where the modern world started its development at the very beginning of human civilisation. This volume presents a detailed analysis of the cities in this region, and their formation and development, as well as the urbanisation process, relations between urban centres, and urban ideology. The period covered here spans from the beginning of the Bronze Age through the ancient era to the Muslim Conquest.
