The Japanese Archaeological Expeditions to West Asia have passed on fourty years since 1956, and recently more than ten expeditions have been send to theree very year. Accordingly, they have kept many materials and research results, altought, it seems that the materials and the research results have not been opened enough to the public. Therefore, to begin with the data base for these materials and the research results have to have been made. We, members of the expeditions and the researchers, have put into effect co-operative researches about them during three years as follows.
