  • The British Institute for the Study of Iraq (BISI) (formerly the British School of Archaeology in Iraq) is the only body in Britain devoted to research into the ancient civilizations and languages of Mesopotamia. It is a registered charity and has its headquarters in the office of the British Academy at Carlton House Terrace in London. The School was founded in 1932 as a memorial to the life and works of Gertrude Bell. Its aims are to encourage, support and undertake research into the archaeology (and cognate subjects) of Iraq, and the neighbouring countries, from the earliest times to c. AD 1700. Since 1934, the School has published a refereed journal, Iraq, which is now published annually, in November/December of each year. The School carried out excavations in Iraq before the Second World War. Activities resumed in 1948, and the School worked continuously from then until 1990. Since then the School has been prevented by political circumstances from resuming its research activities. However, friendly relations with the Iraqi Department of Antiquities and contact with Iraqi colleagues have been maintained, mainly through private visits. In the aftermath of 2003 invasion of Iraq, the school devoted its resources to assisting in the rebuilding of Iraq’s heritage. The School is funded by a grant from the British Government; it also receives an income from private sources. It currently has about 650 subscribing members. It is governed by a Council, which meets in London and is elected annually by the members, under Regulations approved by the original members in 1932 but recently revised. On 12 December 2007 the organization's name was changed to The British Institute for the Study of Iraq (Gertrude Bell Memorial). (en)
