OREA


The Institute for Oriental and European Archaeology (OREA), founded in 2013 and going back to the 19th century Commissions, covers essential prehistoric and early historical cultural developments from the Orient to Europe. This mission is reflected in research ranging from Europe, North Africa, as well as the Middle East in the context of World Archaeology. The orient and occident are frequently understood as counterpoints in different worlds and explored separately. In this research institute, these areas are deliberately considered a common cultural bracket for crucial advances of human (pre)history and are therefore explored together. The focus of basicresearch lies in the time horizon from the Quaternary, about 2.6 million years ago, to the transformation of societies into historical epochs in the 1st millennium BC.
