Mesopotamian Ancient Place-names Almanac

Version 1.0 of the MAPA Gazetteer, presented here in CSV and JSON formats, is the presentation of a gazetteer drawn from legal, economic and administrative texts from the First Millennium BCE, issued in and around the Mesopotamian city of Uruk. The listed toponyms were input manually from the books and articles in MAPA_Gazetteer.bib. The gazetteer follows the JSON-LD based Linked Places format of the World Historical Gazetteer. The readme contains a key to the database’s fields, a brief introduction to the MAPA project and its next steps, and a bibliography.
