In recent years, more and more studies have appeared that deal with feasting and feasting-related activities in the ancient Near East-and their ideological, social and economic meaning. While much of this has focused on textual (e.g., Klingbeil 2006; Altmann 2011; Nam 2012) and iconographic analyses (e.g. Ziffer 2005; ) and on the archaeological evidence for cult-related feasting (e.g., Lev-Tov and McGeough 2007; Zuckerman 2007; London 2011; Meyers 2012; Greer 2013; Herrmann and Schloen 2014), a growing awareness of the need to study the archaeological evidence of feasting in a broad range of every-day activities, at many levels (e.g., Killebrew and Lev-Tov 2008; Maeir 2008; Ben-Shlomo, Hill and Garfinkel 2009; Yasur-Landau, Cline and Samet 2011; Pollock 2012; Altmann and Fu 2014; Koch 2014; Hitchcock, Horwitz and Maeir 2015), is emerging (for a general overview, see Wright 2010a; 2010b).
