MetadataShow full item record
This thesis is a discussing of ideology, social space and power in Uruk societies from 4000 to 3000 B.C. I have focused on on the interaction between north and south druing the Uruk expansion. In this period societies in the northern areas became influenced by south Mesopotamian culture. I argue that ideology was an important aspect and can help to understand the nature and the reasons behind the extensive trading connections.
