As is well known, boat trips on rivers and canals were an essential part of Mesopotamian economy at the end of the 3rd millennium BC; the Tigris and Euphrates, with their tributaries and canals, served as major highways in Mesopotamia. In the Ur III period, inland traffic by waterway was very extensive (more so than interregional water transport). This paper aims at highlighting ports/harbours of the province of Ĝirsu/Lagaš recorded in the administrative texts from the end of the 3rd millennium, by cataloguing the name of the places where these harbours are located.
The topic of the study is the description and complex analysis of the Ló-hegy site uncovered at Dunaföldvár in the spring of 2009. Features of the economic area of an Árpádian period village were uncovered during the excavation preceding the construction of highway M6. The metal and ceramic finds unearthed in the archaeological features date the settlement from the 12th–13th centuries. The observations made during the excavation suggest that the village perished in consequence of the Mongol Invasion.

This paper studies nine memorial Safaitic inscriptions from the town of Deir al-Kahf in Northern Badiyah, northeast of Jordan, along the Baghdad Highway road. The first seven are found to the east of the town, the other two are from the far north end. It seems that these inscriptions show the sadness and grief over an important person called Bnctm. The paper deals with the verbs and names semantically and syntactically, also considering their parallels in other Semitic languages.

Houses of the Baden culture at the Balatonőszöd — Temető dűlő site
. A large settlement of the Baden culture was unearthed on a coherent surface of 100000 square metres during excavations preceding the construction of the new track of highway M 7 at Balatonőszöd in 2001–2002. The Late Copper Age settlement stood on the bank of a lake and along a stream that ran into the lake. The remains of four buildings (house foundations, daub fragments and miniature house models) were uncovered from the classical phase of the culture. The buildings were overground wood-structure houses plastered with daub and raised on posts above the waterlogged territory. They could have profane and sacral functions as well.
