The American Academic Research Institute in Iraq (TAARI) has just launched a blog aimed at “institutions, scholars and other individuals” interested in the history and culture of Iraq from ancient times until the present.

The blog includes a thread where current  TAARI research fellows share reports from the field and past fellows discuss their current work.
