Anthony B. Toth <email@example.com>
I would like to disseminate information about new sources for scholars studying the Levant, and to promote the sharing of ideas about novel methods that can shed light on the study of the region and of other regions. My current research interest is nomadic peoples and I would encourage discussion about any poorly researched and documented group.
