New ways forward in archaeology, linguistics, and genetics

EXPLORING CELTIC ORIGINS

New ways forward in archaeology, linguistics, and genetics Edited by Barry Cunliffe and John T. Koch An accessible work exploring Celtic identity and language across several disciplines.

EDITOR’S PICK

EXPLORING CELTIC ORIGINS

Exploring Celtic Origins is the fruit of collaborative work by researchers in archaeology, historical linguistics, and archaeogenetics over the past ten years. This team works towards the goal of a better understanding of the background in the Bronze Age and Beaker Period of the people who emerge as Celts and speakers of Celtic languages documented in the Iron Age and later times. Led by Professor Sir Barry Cunliffe, the contributors present multidisciplinary chapters in a lively userfriendly style, aimed at accessibility for workers in the other fields, as well as general readers. The collection stands as a pause to reflect on ways edited by forward at the moment of intellectual history Barry Cunliffe & John T.

MYTH AND MATERIALITY By John Wadell (NUI Galway)

Leading Irish archaeologist John Waddell explores myth and materiality, as revealed by archaeology. OXBOW INSIGHTS IN ARCHAEOLOGY SERIES The aim of this latest book in the Oxbow Insights in Archaeology series is to promote the thesis that myth may illuminate archaeology and that on occasion archaeology may shed light on myth. Medieval Irish literature is rich in mythic themes and some of these are used as a starting point. Some myths are of great antiquity and some were invented by contemporary authors. It is a challenging source, first explored in the author’s earlier work Archaeology and Celtic Myth, and this work will elaborate on some of the themes pursued there, as well as introducing some new ones. Combining literary and archaeological evidence, chapters deal with the construction of the past, illustrating how the Irish medieval world invented aspects of the past; the abuses of myth presented in later literature; the evidence for the survival of pagan Oxbow Books • July 2018  beliefs and practices well into medieval times in 9781785709753 • £15.99 • Paperback Ireland; evidence to illustrate the key elements of 197 x 126mm • 192 pages • 35 b/w and colour illus. the institution of sacral kingship, a consideration of sacred trees; mythology of the underworld and its archaeological expressions, and the equine aspects of the myths attached to the Irish goddess Macha (linked to Navan Fort) and her Welsh counterpart Rhiannon.

Excavations at the Anta Da Lajinha Edited by Chris Scarre (Durham University)

Re-assessment of the chronology, landscape setting, and social context of Neolithic megalithic tombs in Iberia. This volume takes the recent excavations at Lajinha and the adjacent site of Cabeço dos Pendentes, along the Tagus valley, as the starting point for a broader consideration of the megalithic tombs of western Iberia. Key themes addressed are relevant to megalithic tombs more generally, including landscape, chronology, settlement and interregional relationships. A final section considers the Iberian tombs within the broader family of west European megalithic monuments, focusing on chronologies, parallels and patterns of contact.

BIG MEN OR CHIEFS?

Rondel Builders in Neolithic Europe By Jaroslav Řídký, Petr Květina, Petr Limburský, Markéta Končelová and Pavel Burgert Questions what archaeological features can reveal about the Central European Neolithic period. This book asks whether the Neolithic large circular structures, most often termed rondels, can be regarded as “architecture of power”­—the first clear evidence of thought-out power strategies of some individuals or their groups. Using anthropological terms—were they skilful and exceptional entrepreneurs with an ad hoc status (such as Big Men) living in egalitarian/segmented communities, or rather powerful Chiefs living in rank and hereditary based societies/chiefdoms?

By A. Bernard Knapp (University of Glasgow)

A diachronic study of seafaring, seafarers and maritime interactions during the eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age. Discussing themes often neglected in studies of the eastern Mediterranean Bronze Age—such as social aspects of seafaring and transport, the relationship different peoples had with the sea, and the whole notion of ‘seascapes’—this book seeks to answer questions about seafaring, seafarers, and maritime interactions. It does so by examining a wide range of material, documentary and iconographic evidence, and re-examining a multiplicity of varying interpretations on Bronze Age seafaring and seafarers in the eastern Mediterranean.

SOCIAL DIMENSIONS OF FOOD IN THE PREHISTORIC BALKANS

Edited by Maria Ivanova, Bogdan Athanassov, Vanya Petrova, Desislava Takorovo and Philipp Stockhammer A multi-disciplinary approach to archaeological exploration of the social dimensions of food production and consumption. Archaeologists have long been aware of the importance of food for the understanding of prehistoric developments. Studies have classified and described cooking ware, hearths and ovens, and studied food residues and stable isotopes in skeletal material. However, there is no integration with traditional, functional perspectives on nutrition and semiotic approaches. In this volume, specialists in archaeobotany, economic zooarchaeology and palaeoanthropology discuss food production and consumption in social dimensions from the Mesolithic to the Early Iron Age in the Balkans.

ANCIENT EGYPT & THE NEAR EAST

FIGURINE MAKERS OF PREHISTORIC CYPRUS Settlement and Cemeteries at Souskiou Edited by Edgar Peltenburg (Edinburgh University), Diane Bolger (Edinburgh University) and Lindy Crewe (Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute, Nicosia)

Analyses settlement and cemeteries of Souskiou Laona together, providing novel insights into prehistory. The Chalcolithic period in Cyprus has been known since Porphyrios Dikaios’ excavations at Erimi in the 1930s and through the appearance in the antiquities market of illicitly acquired anthropomorphic cruciform figures, often manufactured from picrolite, a soft blue-green stone. The excavations of the settlement and cemetery at Souskiou Laona reported on in this volume paint a very different picture of life on the island during the late 4th and early 3rd millennia BC. Burial practices at other known sites are generally single inhumations in intramural pit graves, only rarely equipped with artefacts. At Souskiou, multiple inhumations were interred in deep rock-cut tombs clustered in extra-mural cemeteries. Although the sites were also subjected to extensive looting, excavations have revealed complex multi-stage burial practices with arrangements of disarticulated and articulated burials accompanied by a rich variety of grave goods. Chief among these are a multitude of cruciform figurines and pendants. This unusual treatment of the dead, which has not been recorded elsewhere in Cyprus, shifts the focus from the individual to the communal, and provides evidence for significant changes involving kinship group links to common ancestors. Excavations at the Laona settlement have furnished evidence suggesting that it functioned as a specialised centre for the procurement and manufacture of picrolite during its early phase. The subsequent decline of picrolite production and the earliest known occurrence of new types of ornaments, such as faience beads and copper spiral pendants, attest to important changes involving the transformation of personal and social identities during the first centuries of the 3rd millennium BC, a topic that forms a central theme of this final report on the site.

HAGIA SOPHIA IN CONTEXT

An Archaeological re-examination of the cathedral of Byzantine Constantinople By Ken Dark (University of Reading) and Jan Kostenec (Czech Centre for Mediterranean Archaeology) An archaeological examination of the Hagia Sophia and the surrounding complex of buildings. The Byzantine cathedral of Hagia Sophia has been a source of fascination since its sixth-century construction. Often seen as encapsulating Byzantine history and culture, it has been the subject of much scholarly interest since the Renaissance. However, while almost all archaeological work has focused on the church itself, the surrounding complex of ecclesiastical buildings has been largely neglected. This book focuses on the archaeology of the immediate environs of the church in order to understand the complex as a whole.

ASIA MINOR IN THE LONG SIXTH CENTURY

Current Research and Future Directions Edited by Ine Jacobs (University of Oxford) and Hugh Elton (Trent University, Ontario) A comprehensive examination of quality of life across Asia Minor before the end of Antiquity. This volume explores series of themes focused on life in Asia Minor towards the end of Late Antiquity, including the physical development of large and small settlements, their financial situation, and the proportion of public and private investment. Imperial, provincial, and local initiatives in city and countryside are compared and the main motivations examined, including civic or personal pride, military incentives and religious stimuli. The evidence presented is used to form opinions on the impact of the plague on living circumstances in the sixth century and to evaluate the significance of the Justinianic period.

THE LATE THIRD MILLENNIUM IN THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST Chronology, C14, and Climate Change Edited by Felix Höflmayer (Austrian Academy of Sciences)

Examines supraregional collapse in western Asia and Egypt in relation to rapid climate change. In recent years it has been argued that climatic reasons, especially rapid climate change in the late third millennium BC, might have triggered supraregional collapse in western Asia and Egypt, linking it to a period of aridification and cooling. This book addresses three major themes: the radiocarbon evidence for the mid to late third millennium BC Near East, the chronological implications of new dates and how historical/archaeological chronologies should/could be adapted, and if and how climate change can be related to transitions in the late Early Bronze Age.

The focus of this book is a corpus of glyptic imagery preserved as impressions on two large archives of administrative tablets from Persepolis, the Persepolis Fortification archive (509–493 BC) and the Persepolis Treasury archive (492–457 BC). The glyptic imagery published here concerns representations of what have been traditionally termed “fire altars” and/or “fire temples.” Most of this glyptic evidence has never been published; many of the structures and the scenes in which they occur are strikingly original.

PTOLEMY I SOTER

A Self-Made Man Edited by Timothy Howe (St. Olaf College, Minnesota) Explores Ptolemy I’s continual acts of self-creation in a variety of forms.

Edited by Timothy Howe

As the founder of the longest-lasting of all the Hellenistic kingdoms, not only was Ptolemy I an able soldier and ruler, he was also an historian and, in Egyptian eyes, a living god. His own inclination and experience facilitated continuous acts of self-creation in a variety of forms, whether literary, dynastic, artistic, or political. This book, written by field experts in numismatics, gender, warfare, historiography, Egyptology and religion, examine the many ways in which Alexander the Great’s most successful Successor consciously made his own legacy.

Koine  was used to describe the new common language dialect that became widespread in the ancient Greek world after the conquests of Alexander the Great. Modern scholars have increasingly used the word to conceptualise regional homogeneities in the material culture of the ancient Mediterranean. In this volume, 20 scholars from various disciplines present case studies that focus on the fundamental question of the social and cultural mechanisms that led to the spread and consumption of material culture in the Greek early Iron Age.

ASCENDING AND DESCENDING THE ACROPOLIS Movement in Athenian Religion Edited by Søren Handberg and Troels Myrup Kristensen

Examines religious mobilities in Attica using a range of sources and evidence. Ascending and Descending the Acropolis – Mobility in Athenian Religion provides new perspectives on religious mobilities within the geographically limited region of Attica in Greece from the Late Bronze Age to the second century AD. Attica is a particularly fruitful region to study these forms of mobility, as it provides rich evidence across a range of material and textual sources for a variety of different mobile situations – both inside the city of Athens itself (such as on and circumnavigating the Acropolis) and to sanctuaries in its hinterland (such as Eleusis and Brauron), as well to as more distant sanctuaries, such as Delphi.

THE AGORA BONE WELL

By Maria A. Liston, Susan I. Rotroff and Lynn M. Snyder A truly interdisciplinary work examining the Agora Bone Well. Dorothy Thompson excavated the Agora Bone Well in 1938, yet it has not been fully studied until now. Located outside the northwest corner of the Athenian Agora and dating to the second quarter of the 2nd century B.C., the well contained the remains of roughly 460 newborn infants, a few older individuals, the bones of almost 150 dogs and other animals, and various artefacts. This book provides a thorough examination of its contents, a thoughtful analysis of the neighbourhood in which it was located, and examines its wider context.

THE ARCHETYPE OF WISDOM

A Phenomenological Research on the Greek Temple By Roberto Malvezzi An innovative examination of Greek temples incorporating lived experiences. This volume analyses the birth of the earliest Greek temples through an innovative phenomenological approach, in which lived experiences are assumed as key tools of investigation. It explores the connections that tied the Greeks to their surroundings, which can be found in the evidence of Greek religion, poetry, art and philosophy. This framework sheds new light on the relationship between ‘human’ and ‘divine’ in the ancient Greek world, and suggests that the archetypal structure of temples was devised to facilitate a particular experience.

New Archaeological Perspectives Edited by Andrew P. Fitzpatrick (University of Leicester) and Colin Haselgrove (University of Leicester)

Edited by Andrew P. Fitzpatrick and Colin Haselgrove

The latest archaeological research on the Battle for Gaul and its aftermath.

new archaeological perspectives

Roman historians have little to say on the consequences of the war on the Iron Age communities of north-west Europe. Their story is told instead by archaeology and numismatics. Huge numbers were involved in the war, at a vast cost in people and wealth. In the aftermath, leaders sympathetic to Rome were installed and sometimes whole peoples were resettled. The diplomatic relations created at this time directly affected the eventual incorporation of these peoples into the Roman Empire.

LATE ANTIQUE AND EARLY MEDIEVAL HISPANIA Landscapes without Strategy? By Pilar Diarte-Blasco (University of Leicester)

Examines transformations of the Iberian Peninsula from the disappearance of the Roman Empire to arrival of Islamic troops. Examines the transformations of the urban and rural landscapes of the Iberian Peninsula, across one of the most turbulent periods of the history of this region, between the decay and disappearance of the Roman Empire and the arrival of the Islamic troops (c. AD 400-711). It analyses landscape changes in a global perspective, combining both rural and urban contexts, discarding orthodox and reductionists points of view, where both aspects are analysed independently and as isolated compartments.

Life and Death in the Countryside of Roman Britain By Alexander Smith, Martyn Allen, Tom Brindle, Michael Fulford, Lisa Lodwick and Anna Rohnbogner How the rural population of Roman Britain looked, lived, interacted with material and spiritual worlds, and died. Many previous syntheses of life and death in Roman Britain have drawn mostly upon data from urban or military settings, with rural life being limited to the elite residing in villas. Thanks to the increase in new information resulting from developer-funded excavations over the past thirty years, this has now changed. The six main chapters in this volume each tackle a different theme relating to life and death in the countryside of Roman Britain, combining to facilitate construction of a broad social archaeology of the province.

Crossrail in the lower Thames floodplain By Graham Spurr with Mary Nicholls and Virgil Yendell Analysis of investigations along the Crossrail south-east line. Has the Thames always looked like it does today, confined to the same course, muddy, brackish and tidal? Through analysis of the archaeology investigated along the Crossrail south-east line, which diverts from the main west–east route across the Thames floodplain from Stepney Green to Abbey Wood, this book tells the story of the lower Thames throughout the Holocene (from c. 10,000 years ago to the present). Introducing the techniques and theories used in geoarchaeology, this book uses the platform of the Crossrail sites to understand the wider, lower Thames area from Erith to Greenwich, Canning Town to Hornchurch.

Seeks to address questions about the people who were buried with Beakers —the distinctive pottery of Continental origin that was current in Britain from around 2450 BC. Who were these people? Were they immigrants and how far did they move around? What was their lifestyle? How do they compare with Britain’s earlier inhabitants and with contemporaries who did not use Beaker pottery? This lavishly illustrated book presents a body of data that will be vital to studies of Chalcolithic and Early Bronze Age Britain for decades to come.

Well known for its later gunpowder industry and the famous Sheherd Neame brewery, Faversham’s earlier medieval history also reveals it to have been an important religious and administrative centre. The town archives possess an unusually complete set of medieval-onwards town charters and other documents including a Magna Carta. Using archaeological and historical evidence set in a physical and social context, the authors argue that there is a great deal more to this small town on the North Kent coast than is obvious at first glance.

Textiles, Crafts Production and Social Dynamics in the Bronze Age southern Aegean By Joanne Elizabeth Cutler Proposes new perspectives concerning processes through which Cretan techniques were taken up and imitated abroad. The mid second millennium BC material record of the southern Aegean shows evidence of strong Cretan influence. This phenomenon has traditionally been seen in terms of ‘Minoanisation’, but the nature and degree of Cretan influence, and the process/processes by which it was spread and adopted, have been widely debated. This new study addresses the question of ‘Minoanisation’ through a study of the adoption of Cretan technologies in the wider southern Aegean: principally, weaving technology.

A Phenomenological Approach to the Study of Minoan Architecture By Clairy Palyvou Explores the Minoan world through its architecture, and architecture through the Minoan paradigm. The Bronze Age was a time of affluence and innovation for Crete, a unique “moment” in the early history of architecture. The mythical Daidalos stands for the prototype of “an architect at work”, following orders and desires set by his clients and by society. In this book, architecture is the protagonist and phenomoneology the basic tool of thought. This book addresses archaeologists, architectural historians, and architects alike.

JAWN MARTYR OF KARBALA LAMENTED

Marsiyah Dar Hal Janab Jawn Ibn Hawiyy Mawla Abi Dharr Al-Ghifari By His Highness Raja Muḥammad Amīr Ahmad Khān and Peter Knapcyzk Publishes for the first time a marsiyah that will grip both the academic and lay reader. This hitherto unpublished marsiyah composed by Rajad Mohammad Amir Ahmad Khan of Mahmudabad is unique for a number of reasons. The subject of the marsiyah is Jawn, an Abyssinian companion of Imam al-Husayn, who . was martyred in Karbala. It is the very first marsiyah known to be composed in Jawn’s memory in any language of such length and breadth. Alongside the obvious references to racial equality, the marsiyah demonstrates the author’s deep knowledge of Islamic history and contains subtle metaphysical meditations.

CONVERSATIONS BETWEEN OBJECTS

Conversations between Objects

Edited by Linda Hulin (University of Oxford)

New theoretical approach to the relationship between the archaeological recovery of objects how humans experience objects.

Linda Hulin

Conversations between Objects

This volume in the popular Oxbow Insights in Archaeology series considers the relationship between the archaeological record and the human past, and examines the differences that arise between the practice of excavating material culture and the models for thinking about it. Two common themes emerge: the dominance of vision as a medium of both recording the past and a vehicle for understanding it and the primacy given to knowledge over sensation. Ultimately, this work brings the ordinariness of the object world back into discourse by exploring their affect, en masse, upon the human body.

LANDSCAPE BENEATH THE WAVES

The Archaeological Exploration of Underwater Landscapes By Caroline Wickham-Jones (University of Aberdeen) Offers an easily accessible introduction to the exciting realm of underwater archaeology. At the end of the last Ice Age, sea level around the world was lower, coastal lands stretched further and the continents were bigger, in some cases landmasses were joined by dry land that has now disappeared beneath the waves. The study of the now submerged landscapes that our ancestors knew represents one of the last barriers for archaeology. This volume considers the processes behind the rising (and falling) of relative sea-levels and then presents the main techniques available for the study and interpretation of the archaeological remains that have survived inundation. Case studies are used to illustrate particular applications, and a review of projects around the world highlights the varying scale and period of sites concerned. It offers an easily accessible introduction to the exciting realm of underwater archaeology.

Estudio arqueológico sobre el paisaje indígena de Haytí y su transformacióna al paisaje colonial de La Española (1200-1550) By Eduardo Herrera Malatesta Examines the ways in which Columbus’ arrival to the Caribbean affected the indigenous populations. The arrival of Columbus to the Caribbean in 1492 marked a milestone in world history, and affected the indigenous population at different cultural, social and political levels. This volumes approaches these transformations by studying material culture patterns and their spatial distribution. In this work a regional archaeological investigation is combined with a theoretical framework that integrates the concepts of taskscape and contested landscapes with statistical analysis and Geographic Information Systems to evaluate the patterns of material culture distribution and its cultural implications.

DEBATING RELIGIOUS SPACE AND PLACE IN THE EARLY MEDIEVAL WORLD (C. AD 300-1000)

ARCHAEOLOGICAL METHOD & THEORY

UNA ISLA, DOS MUNDOS

Edited by Chantal Bielmann and Brittany Thomas

Interdisciplinary and multi-national scholars discuss religious ‘space’ and ‘place’ in the Early Medieval World. Religious spaces are often some of the most debated, contested, or otherwise scrutinized in the early medieval world. That space and place were important to people in the past is evident in their architecture, artwork, literature, and in their cemeteries and burial grounds. While these observations are not new, this volume brings together interdisciplinary and multi-national archaeologists, historians, and geographers to discuss and debate ‘space’ and ‘place’ with a focus on new methodologies and current approaches to Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages.

THE SÖSDALA HORSEMEN AND THE EQUESTRIAN ELITE IN FIFTH CENTURY EUROPE Edited by Charlotte Fabech and Ulf Nässman

A European team of scholars places Sösdala in its European setting. Sösdala is a famous name in European archaeology of the Migration Period, but the fame of the name has overshadowed the finds themselves – including mounts from an exquisitely decorated parade bridle, the closest parallels to which are found in Austria, Poland, Romania and Ukraine. Based on new scholarly studies and scientific analyses, a European team of scholars places Sösdala in its European setting. The book is concluded by full catalogues of three finds of horse tack from Sösdala and Fulltofta.

Empowering the Dead in Christian Nubia: The Texts from a Medieval Funerary Complex in Dongola Edited by Adam Łajtar and Jacques van der Vliet Publishes the texts found on the walls of the crypt of Archbishop Georgios of Dongola. In 1993, a team from the Polish Centre of Mediterranean Archaeology of the University of Warsaw discovered the crypt of Archbishop Georgios of Dongola. The walls of the crypt were covered with writing, and the provisional identification of some of the texts forced a complete re-evaluation of Makurian culture and Christianity in Africa in the early twelfth century. These texts have been recorded, studied and ultimately published in this astounding selection of texts in Greek and Coptic.

PETRAS, SITEIA. THE PRE- AND PROTOPALATIAL CEMETERY IN CONTEXT

In 1864, a large metal hoard of copper, bronze and silver objects was discovered at Pile in the southern Swedish region of Scania. The hoard has been dated to the onset of the rich Nordic Bronze Age, and emerges as the earliest, finest and one of the largest of the Nordic sacrificial deposits of metalwork in or near water. The metal hoard from Pile in Scania, Sweden provides the first detailed documentation, scientific examination and historical interpretation of the assemblage. Around 2000 BCE the site of Pile was networked with places near and the far in a manner that boosted the political economy of Southern Scandinavia, adding to an atmosphere of tensions and change – and it made history. The chapters unfold as a ‘history from beneath’ beginning with place, things and time and concluding with metals and the worlds that intersected in Pile at the threshold of the long Bronze Age.
