Royal Asiatic Society Film Footage of Excavations in Iraq

Royal Asiatic Society Film Footage of Excavations in Iraq
The RAS Collections hold only two reels of film. These have been digitised and are available to view.
We are grateful to Amara Thornton and Michael McCluskey  from the UCL, Filming Antiquity project for their insights into this film.
The footage dates from the late 1920s/early 1930s and shows excavations in Iraq at the mound of Kouyunjik, scenes in the village of Nebi Yunus, across the Khosr river from Kouyunjik within the ancient city boundaries of Nineveh, and scenes in the city of Mosul, across the river Tigris from Nineveh. The footage (at present) has been attributed to Nineveh excavator Reginald Campbell Thompson (1876-1941), a British Assyriologist, epigrapher and archaeologist.
Campbell Thompson directed four seasons at Nineveh – the initial 1927/28 season was followed by three in succession – 1929/30, 1930/31 and 1931/32.  He focused on the mound of Kouyunjik, the location of Ashurnasirpal’s palace, and also sought evidence of a temple of the Assyrian goddess Ishtar, which was eventually discovered during the 1930/31 season. Campbell Thompson’s wife, Barbara, joined him on site for all four seasons, credited in the official publications with her work on the “domestic” arrangements.  A varied cast of team members included two friends of Barbara’s – Miss Isabel Shaw (1929/30) and Miss M. Hallett (1930/31) – as well as Richard Hutchinson (1929/30) and Robert W. Hamilton (1930/31) and Max Mallowan and Agatha Christie (1931/32).  Of the Iraqi members of the excavation, Campbell Thompson specifically credited his overseers Yakub and Abd-el-Ahad, as well as Mejid Shaiya, whom Campbell Thompson referred to as “my old henchman”.
2_Title card
The film has impromptu title cards (no more formal than paper pinned up for the camera) which lead viewers through a sequence of scenes.  Reginald Campbell Thompson was intensely interested in the customs, culture and biographies of the people who worked with him and for him on site. Campbell Thompson’s footage, if indeed he was behind the camera, offers scenes similar to other excavation films from this period and other, striking images unique to his own sense of the city of Mosul and its dynamism. Through the camera lens we see the work of the dig in the context of the local culture and geography. We see craft work, leisure activities, and what one intertitle describes as a fête complete with makeshift Ferris wheel.

Other shots are more pedagogical and seemingly geared toward students: a scene shows the ‘squeeze’ process of transferring stone inscriptions onto paper and washing delicate pottery fragments. One interesting sequence shows off the different modes of transportation that intersect each day; crossing the screen we see a donkey drawing a carriage, a bicycle, and a motor car. This interest in different modes of transportation extends to the delicate process of ‘sending home’ items unearthed on the dig as we see workers ‘packing antiquities’ to be sent presumably to Britain.
5_Paper Squeeze
It is unknown when the reels of film came into the RAS Collections, though it was noted in the Minutes for 13 November 1941 to thanks Mrs Campbell-Thompson for Assyrological slides. It is possible that the films were donated at the same time or were left after a Lecture. Campbell Thompson gave “Excavations at Nineveh 1929-1930” (jointly with R. W. Hutchinson) at the Royal Asiatic Society at 4.30 pm on 25 September 1930; and another lecture on 1 October 1931 (for the 1930-31 season).

Mekhane in Ionic Greek means essentially contrivance, engine, 'machine'. Here it is used as the domain name for a digital map of visualizations about the ancient world. It focuses on gathering the following information about visualizations:

  • Technological tools
  • Purpose
  • Ancient places
  • Contemporary site of production
  • Geographical density
  • International impact

  • It is, in short, a research and a study tool for visualizations of ancient sites, buildings and environments.

    TABULA IMPERII BYZANTINI (TIB)
    DPP 
    Research on the Historical Geography of the Byzantine Empire at the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Vienna is conducted by the Tabula Imperii Byzantini (TIB). This renowned project was accepted by the Union Académique Internationale in Brussels in 2015 (Project 87), and at the same time included into the scheme of Long-Term-Projects at the Austrian Academy of Sciences, based on independent excellent international evaluations. The TIB carries out systematic research in the historical geography of the Byzantine Empire, from the beginning of the 4th century to the mid-15th century. The aim of the project is to create a historical atlas of the Byzantine space from Late Antiquity to the Early Modern period.

    Individual regions are represented on maps on a scale of 1 : 800,000. A separate accompanying volume provides the results of further research in each region. Each volume contains detailed introductory chapters on geography and climate, borders and territorial designations, history, administrative history, church history and monasticism, traffic routes, economy and demographic trends. The main part of each volume consists of an alphabetical catalogue of all toponyms, hydronyms etc. that were known in Byzantine times. Also included are the historical places, whose historical names are unknown, but for whose existence there is (or there was) archaeological evidence. Written sources (from Late Antiquity to Early Modern Times) and archaeological materials elucidate the history of individual places, along with brief descriptions of monuments, both those that are known to have existed and those that are still preserved. The aforesaid results are enriched by systematic field research in order to verify, modify or complete the information of the sources.

    Since 1986 new methods have been included into the scholarly work of the TIB, namely: studies of Palaeo-climate and settlement theories (for example the modified "Central Place Theory"), as well as the regular use of the Global Positioning System (GPS) during field missions and surveys. Digital Humanities, e.g. in the form of Historical Geographical Information Systems (HGIS), further contribute to the analysis and interpretation of the research data.

    Breaking Ground: Women in Old World Archaeology

    Breaking Ground: Women in Old World Archaeology
    http://www.brown.edu/Research/Breaking_Ground/images/nav/title.gif
    Breaking Ground may as well have been titled “Against all Odds,” as the women archaeologists whose lives and careers we remember here faced innumerable challenges and difficulties but prevailed to contribute significantly to the expansion of our knowledge of the ancient world. Most entered this male dominated field at a time when few educational opportunities or careers were open to women. They excavated in countries where traditional, patriarchal societies did not generally allow women leadership or even public roles. Yet we found English women as early as the 19th century gaining government permissions to excavate in Egypt and Greece. We found women traveling alone through deserts and mountains and gaining acceptance from Bedouin tribes. We found them directing fieldwork using male workers whose own wives held subservient roles. The women archaeologists’ rewards were almost purely intellectual, as many received no (or almost no) compensation for their demanding jobs, but of adventure there was plenty. Their activities were arduous, often dangerous, and required determination, stamina, a love of adventure, and certainly dedication.

    This database includes women from many countries (both Eastern and Western Europe, Australia, and North America) who were, not only field archaeologists, but also some of whom also taught in universities or worked as museum curators or archaeological artists or photographers. A combination of at least two of these skills is often encountered among them. Yet whenever any of them were on expeditions they all faced the same deprivations of poor housing, primitive hygiene, limited food, and long hours in severe weather sorting or washing pottery, drawing plans, keeping records, and enduring sandstorms, searing temperatures, or heavy rains. Archaeology is not glamorous, but it is adventurous and filled with the unexpected. Such a life makes more demands on the female sex, and it takes a certain type of woman to persist and succeed. By remembering the careers of these intelligent and dedicated women, we not only honor them, but also hope to encourage other women to be drawn to archaeology as a career so that the human record may continue to be pieced together in the years ahead.
    This unique collection of pioneering women’s biographies includes not only field archaeologists, but also those who have been deeply involved in the discipline of archaeology: philologists, epigraphers, writers, artists, museum curators, professors, and fund raisers. Not surprisingly, most of these women were right in the middle of the archaeological process. This web project provides a broad view of how these women became major contributors to the field, at the same time crafting their own identities. The life stories of these women, their extraordinary intellectual and archaeological accomplishments, are provocative, for they transcended the cultures they lived in and, despite the struggles they faced, achieved much of enduring importance.
    This project originated in 1994 as the inspiration of Professor Getzel M. Cohen of the University of Cincinnati and Professor Martha Sharp Joukowsky of Brown University. Volume I of Breaking Ground: Pioneering Women Archaeologists, published by the University of Michigan Presss in 2004, contains biographies of Jane Dieulafoy, Margaret Alice Murray, Gertrude Bell, Harriet Boyd Hawes, Edith Hall Dohan, Hetty Goldman, Gertrude Caton-Thompson, Dorothy Garrod, Winifred Lamb, Theresa Goell, Kathleen Kenyon, Esther Van Deman.

    In Breaking Ground the impression may have been given that we have covered in full women active in Classical and Near Eastern Archaeology. This misconception could not be further from the truth, and that is why this web project is devoted to additional pioneering women and their lives. This was to become a dictionary and second volume of Breaking Ground, but it inevitably grew into a volume of encyclopedic proportions.

    In 2003, Martha S. Joukowsky and Barbara S. Lesko, also of Brown University, decided that the stories of these many women should become a web-based project so that it could be accessed on the web and be available to worldwide readers. Taking each biography in turn, we edited them, created abstracts for each woman and keywords so that subject searches could be made. The contributions of French, German and Italian colleagues have been left in their original language, but their abstracts are presented in English. Surely we wish for more information on each subject and we invite you the browser or reader to add your comments and suggestions, perhaps supply photos, and correct any infelicities that may have crept into these portraits.

    This web project was created in part because of our frustration with traditional publishing limitations of space, and we wanted this project to complement the book Breaking Ground by presenting the stories of additional archaeological women. We welcome future submissions. Our desire is also to have this database added to with additional biographies in future years. To attempt a book length manuscript would have burst the bounds of publication. It seemed sensible to create a web-based project also for more broad and detailed coverage, not only of each woman’s life, but also to give world wide viewers a glimpse of how these professionals looked in their time and place. The bibliography of each woman is presented without which, of course, her work would not be complete.

    Archéologie de la frontière
    Si la notion de frontière renvoie aujourd’hui à une segmentation de l’espace, les sciences humaines et sociales nous permettent de saisir toute la complexité de cette notion. L’archéologie montre une frontière perçue - et vécue - différemment selon les méthodes appliquées et les cultures étudiées, et qui relève davantage d’un espace d’interactions.
    Parce que les données matérielles portent les traces de ces interactions, elles rendent possible la visualisation des échanges entre popula...

     Women of ASOR Map
    http://worldmap.harvard.edu/media/ASORwomen/banner.jpg
    The “Women of ASOR” Map will act as a networking resource for ASOR’s membership, as it displays the locations of professional female members around the globe – pinpointing the universities, museums or other organizations where they work and the sites at which they excavate. Each red dot opens a pop-up box that contains the profile of a member at this geographic location (latitude and longitude coordinates) and information of any affiliated archaeological projects. Each blue star is located at the geographic location of the archaeological projects affiliated with the members represented on the map (red dots). Helpful Hints: Zooming in on the map allows users to see the more specific locations of the members. To search for a particular member or specialty keyword, use the search box at the bottom left of the screen. Also, on the upper left toolbar is the “Identify” button/link, which needs to be clicked on or highlighted in order to explore the points (red dots and blue stars) on the map.

    Зборник Матице српске за класичне студије - Journal of Classical Studies of Matica Srpska
    ISSN: 1450-6998
    The Management Board of Matica Srpska passed a resolution on publishing the Journal of Classical Studies of Matica Srpska (Zbornik Matice srpske za klasične studije) at its 4th meeting on the 11th of March 1996.
    The Journal focuses on studying the classical antiquities in all aspects. The classical period is the core of European civilization and culture, and our country and the Serbian people are an integral part of that cultural area of the classical era. Many achievements of the classical period in culture, philosophy and science, languages, literature, history, art and material culture were handed down to future European and other nations by the Ancient Balkans. As stated by our leading authority on the Balkans of the classical period, Academician Milan Budimir, the Balkan Slavs as well as all other citizens of former Yugoslavia had strong ties with the culture of the classical period, its location as well as representatives of the era.
    “That antique influence and classical heritage, as well as the heritage and reception of the classical period in the Serbian nation are least mentioned in the world. Thus the primary objective of the journal is the contribution to the promotion of our classical science abroad. To this end are the contributions of colleagues from Europe, Russia, the USA, Canada and India published in our journal.”
    The Journal is to cover critical acclamation and presentation of works of our scientists and authors dealing with classical topics. This is the reason why the reception of Hellenic philosophy, literature, art and culture, both Greek and Roman, in Serbian tradition will be one of the major topics. Comparative research of religion and myth along with theoretical definition of this sphere are further interests of our international partners, including law and natural sciences of the classical period.
    Apart from original research studies and articles on classical topics, the Journal publishes proceedings from scientific conferences on the classical period in our country and abroad, relations with the Orient, classical heritage in Byzantium, interrelations with the Slavic World and Serbian language and culture.
    The Journal also features permanent sections like Hronika naučnog života (the Chronicle of Scientific Life), Projekti (Projects), Vesti iz sveta (News from the World), Nekrolozi (Necrologies) and so forth.
    Special attention is devoted in the Journal to scientific criticism and presentation of new books and studies published in our country as well as abroad, thus publications of the most important publishers have been provided.
    We would like to point out that this Journal is the only one of its kind and has appeared rather late, bearing in mind that the Yugoslav journal on classical topics was lost with the secession of former Yugoslav republics. Precious support to our Journal was given by the International Federation of the Societies of Classical Studies FIEC at its General Assembly on the 20th of August 1999, in Kavala (Greece), when the president of FIEC, Academician Carl Joachim Classen, member of Matica Srpska, publicly supported the publishing of the Journal of Classical Studies and invited colleagues to cooperate with the Journal. We would like to emphasize that FIEC is one of thirteen UNESCO associations for social sciences. Papers from our Journal enter the leading bibliographical publication in the world in this field L’Année Philologique.

    Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres: Lettre d’information
    http://www.aibl.fr/squelettes/styles/img/BackgroundGauche.jpg
    L'Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres est essentiellement une société de savants réunis dans un même idéal de recherche consacré aux sciences humaines. Fondée en 1663 sous l'impulsion de Colbert, installée depuis 1805 quai de Conti, dans le cadre majestueux de l'ancien collège des Quatre-Nations, autrefois édifié par Mazarin, elle est l'une des cinq Académies constitutives de l'Institut de France.
