The historical and cultural role of the Aramaeans in ancient Syria can hardly be overestimated. The aim of the handbook "The Aramaeans in Ancient Syria" consists in giving precise and up to date information on different aspects of Aramaean culture. To that end, history, society, economy and law, language and script, literature, religion, art and architecture of the Aramaean kingdoms of Syria from their beginnings in the 11 cent. B.C. until their end ca. 720 B.C. are covered within the handbook. The wide survey of Aramaean culture in Syria is supplemented by overviews on the Aramaeans in Assyria, Babylonia, Phoenicia, Palestine, Egypt, North Arabia and on the Aramaean heritage in the Levant.
