Abstract in different language: The main goal of this volume is to describe the history and culture of civilizations which developed on an extensive territory, including the Near East as well as some territories in Central and South Asia. Experts from various scientific institutions in the Czech Republic as well as in Slovakia who have long been involved in the study of the cultures on this territory present here the results of their research projects which are devoted to various aspects of the historical development. The main topic of the majority of the projects is the study of the cultures of Asia in the antiquity, but also some problems connected with the present developments are mentioned as well. Pavel Král in his paper describes the development of settlement patterns in the area of Mosul in northern Mesopotamia in the Early Bronze period. Also the contribution by Kateřina Šašková is related to the history of ancient Mesopotamia. The author thouroughly studies the written sources that mention the treatment of the illness from which the Assyrian king Asarhaddon (680–669 B.C.) suffered. Michal Habaj evaluates a wide range of written sources pertaining to the history of Scythians and tries to reconstruct the ways in which that ethnic group is portrayed in the classical historiographic work by Herodotus. On the other hand, the paper presented by David Rafael Moulis is based primarily on the archaeological data. Its main goal is to reconstruct the ritual offerings that were deposited under the floor of various buildings in order to protect those buildings as well as their inhabitants. Other papers are devoted to more recent topics. Katarína Šomodiová studies the contemporary communities of Mandaeans in Khuzistan (Iran) as well as in some European countries (Germany and Denmark). The contribution by Simona Levá Jandová leads us to the region of Southern India and describes the traditional Tamil tales called Kuravanji. The region of Central Asia is represented by the study performed by Tomáš Retka who analyzes the linguistic situation in the contemporary Republic of Tajikistan. The texts of the individual papers were presented at the 16th colloquium Orientalia Antiqua Nova which was organized by the Department of Middle East Studies of the Faculty of Philosophy and Arts of the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen in April 2016. We believe that the present publication will be useful to the wide scientific public which is interested in the development of civilizations in Asia.
