The research that I undertook for the book was of two kinds - library based and field work. The library research was carried out in a number of institutions in Europe and the Middle East and I would like to thank everyone who helped me with references or information, in particular: Michael Given, Tony Grey, Stjohn Simpson, Benjamin Pickles, Mark Horton, Alistair Northedge, Matt Thompson and Jeremy Johns. The field research was usually carried out as an incidental part of other projects.

 Several individuals and institutions have been particularly  helpful; these  are: the  British School of Archaeology in  Jerusalem,  the  British School of Archaeology in Iraq, the British Institute at Amman for Archaeology and History, the British Institute in  Eastern Africa, the International Merv Project, Dr Julian Reade and the Turkish Government. 

Preparation of the manuscript and drawings was helped by a number of people including Heather Nixon, Charles Craske, Crispian Pickles, David Myres and Kate Cheyne. Photographs were provided by a number of people and institutions, in  particular I would like  to thank Kerry Abbott, Pat and Charles Aithie, Susan Bailey, Rebecca Foote, Cherry Pickles and James  Allan. 

Here I would also like  to  express my thanks  to  Mark Barragry and Seth Denbo both of Routledge for their enthusiasm and patience. Finally, I would like to express my gratitude to my wife Heather Nixon who tolerated and helped with this book for so long.
