When discussing approaches to the vast field of Ancient Near Eastern (or Western Asian) studies,Assyriology is often fragmented into philology and history the study of the texts, and theircontextualisation into broader models and theories respectively. However, such a clear distinction isartificial. In fact, these two approaches constantly mutually influence and complement one another.Just as philological research provides new information for historical reconstructions, so too canhistorical models provide new contexts in which to understand these texts.
