P R S Moorey

P.R.S. Moorey, FBA, FSA (1937-2004) was one of the finest scholars of his generation. Keeper of Antiquities at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford University from 1983-2002, Roger Moorey laid the groundwork for much of our understanding of the bronzes, terracottas and faience of the Ancient Near East. This study and accompanying catalogue of the Ancient Near Eastern terracottas in the Ashmolean's collections, completed in 2004, is the last of Roger Moorey's many publications.
