Topics and areas in need of improvementEdit

Members of the project are welcome to add topics, articles or general areas relating to the ancient Near East to the list below if they consider them in need of more attention from the project at large. Please provide a motivation and the date in which you added a topic/article/area if you add to the list.

  • The chronology used in articles needs to be standardized to the middle chronology where applicable (or use the most commonly cited dates). Conflicting dates in other chronologies should also be provided, preferrably in a note or something to that effect to avoid clutter. Ichthyovenator (talk) 12:59, 13 August 2020 (UTC)
