Elynn introduces the historical geography of the Neo-Elamite kingdom. What do we know about the borderlands and their role in Assyrian-Elamite relations? Why don’t we know where so many places are, and why is that so significant?
2:32 who were “the Elamites”?
5:24 the Elamite language, writing, and texts
7:33 about the Elamite kingdom
10:21 relations with Elam’s neighbours
11:50 the borderlands and Elamite-Assyrian relations
15:36 on Elamite identity
16:28 where are the places mentioned in the texts?
21:16 about the harbours
25:16 matching up names with sites on the ground
