Abstract

This volume of Berytus includes a series of papers describing preliminary results from recent excavations undertaken in the Souks area of Beirut Central District (BCD) by the American University of Beirut (AUB) in association with the Archaeological Collaboration for Research and Excavation (ACRE). Several progress reports and commentaries have already been published, but post-excavation work continues to produce new results: the opportunity has therefore been taken here to present new findings in advance of definitive publication. This introductory summary provides background information for the reports which follow. It describes the context in which the work was undertaken, includes summary descriptions of the archaeological sequences excavated and reviews the overall progress of study. Errors found in earlier interim statements are corrected, and the author offers personal reflections on the lessons learnt and research opportunities ahead.
