Το Έργον της εν Αθήναις Αρχαιολογικής Εταιρείας» (Έργον) 
ISSN: 0570-6211
Από το 1954 η Εταιρεία καινοτομεί ως προς την ανακοίνωση του έργου της. Επειδή τα ΠΑΕ, όπως είναι φυσικό, εκδίδονταν πολλές φορές δύο χρόνια αργότερα, άρχισε να δημοσιεύεται η ετήσια λογοδοσία του γραμματέως σε ιδιαίτερο πολυτελές τεύχος με πλούσια εικονογράφηση που τιτλοφορείται «Το Έργον της εν Αθήναις Αρχαιολογικής Εταιρείας», το οποίο και διανέμεται συνήθως την ημέρα της λογοδοσίας, την άνοιξη κάθε χρονιάς.
Μέχρι στιγμής έχουν δημοσιευτεί 61 τόμοι του περιοδικού Το Έργον της εν Αθήναις Αρχαιολογικής Εταιρείας:
From 1954 onwards, the Society introduces changes in the presentation of its work. As the PAE were oftentimes published with a two-year delay, the annual accountability presentation of the Secretary began to be published in a special volume with rich illustrations, titled «To Ergon tes En Athenais Archaiologikes Hetaireias», which is usually distributed on the accountability day, in the spring.
To date, a total of 61 volumes of the Ergon have been published:

3D model of the Pergamon Altar

Der Pergamonaltar

Foto: Antikensammlung SMB, Johannes Laurentius 

Die Berliner Antikensammlung besitzt ein einzigartiges Denkmal der griechischen Antike. Der Große Altar wurde im 2. Jh. v. Chr. in der kleinasiatischen Königsresidenz Pergamon errichtet. Nach seiner Wiederentdeckung im späten 19. Jh. gelangten gemäß Fundteilung ausgewählte Architekturteile sowie der Skulpturenschmuck des Altars nach Berlin. Sie werden in einer monumentalen Teilrekonstruktion im Pergamonmuseum präsentiert. Der 113 m lange Sockelfries des Altars, der auch unter den Bezeichnungen Gigantenfries oder Großer Fries bekannt ist, gilt als Meisterwerk der hellenistischen Bildhauerkunst. Er zeigt einen an Dynamik und Pathos kaum zu überbietenden Kampf zwischen Göttern und Giganten.
Im Rahmen des Masterplans Museumsinsel wird das Pergamonmuseum seit 2013 abschnittsweise saniert, der Saal mit dem Pergamonaltar ist seit Herbst 2014 bis voraussichtlich 2019 geschlossen.

ISSN: 1105-7785
Από το 1851 η Εταιρεία εκδίδει σε ξεχωριστούς τόμους μελέτες και μονογραφίες. Τα πρώτα χρόνια οι εκδόσεις αυτές ήταν λίγες. Από τη γραμματεία του Γ. Οικονόμου έγιναν περισσότερες και επί Α. Ορλάνδου σχηματίστηκε μια σειρά σπουδαιότατη που περιλαμβάνει εκτός από ογκώδεις μονογραφίες πολλές διδακτορικές διατριβές.

Μέχρι στιγμής στη σειρά ΒΑΕ έχουν δημοσιευτεί 305 τόμοι αυτοτελών επιστημονικών έργων, στους οποίους συμπεριλαμβάνονται και οι 29 τόμοι της σειράς «Αρχαίοι τόποι και Μουσεία της Ελλάδος»:

Κατάλογος Τίτλων


From 1851 onwards, the Society publishes studies and monographs in individual volumes. In the first years, such publications were limited in number. During Georgios Oikonomos’s secretariat more publications emerged, whereas the time of Anastasios Orlandos was marked by a very important series that includes massive monographs as well as numerous dissertations. To date, the BAE series includes 305 volumes of individual scholarly works that also contain the 29 volumes of the series “Ancient Sites and Museums of Greece”:

Near Eastern Landscapes and Declassified U2 Aerial Imagery

Abstract

Recently declassified photographs taken by U2 spy planes in the 1950s and 1960s provide an important new source of historical aerial imagery useful for Eurasian archaeology. Like other sources of historical imagery, U2 photos provide a window into the past, before modern agriculture and development destroyed many archaeological sites. U2 imagery is older and in many cases higher resolution than CORONA spy satellite imagery, the other major source of historical imagery for Eurasia, and thus can expand the range of archaeological sites and features that can be studied from an aerial perspective. However, there are significant barriers to finding and retrieving U2 imagery of particular locales, and archaeologists have thus not yet widely used it. In this article, we aim to reduce these barriers by describing the U2 photo dataset and how to access it. We also provide the first spatial index of U2 photos for the Middle East. A brief discussion of archaeological case studies drawn from U2 imagery illustrates its merits and limitations. These case studies include investigations of prehistoric mass-kill hunting traps in eastern Jordan, irrigation systems of the first millennium BC Neo-Assyrian Empire in northern Iraq, and twentieth-century marsh communities in southern Iraq.
Las fotografías tomadas por aviones espía U-2 durante los años 50 y 60, recientemente desclasificadas, son una nueva fuente de imágenes aéreas muy útil para la arqueología euroasiática. Tal como otras fuentes de imágenes históricas, las fotografías de los U-2 son una ventana hacia un pasado antes de la destrucción de muchos sitios arqueológicos a manos de la agricultura y el desarrollo modernos. Las imágenes de los U-2 preceden aquellas tomadas por los satélites espía CORONA, la otra fuente principal de imágenes históricas de Eurasia, y en muchos casos son de más alta resolución. Por lo mismo, expanden el rango de sitios y rasgos arqueológicos que se pueden estudiar desde una perspectiva aérea. Sin embargo, existen obstáculos significativos para conseguir y acceder a imágenes de localidades particulares, y por lo tanto los arqueólogos todavía no acostumbran a valerse de ellas. En este artículo tenemos como meta disminuir estos obstáculos a través de una descripción del conjunto de imágenes de los U-2 y de un método para acceder a ellas. También proveemos el primer índice espacial de fotografías de los U-2 del Medio Oriente. Una breve discusión de casos prácticos usando estas imágenes demuestra sus ventajas y limitaciones. Estos casos incluyen investigaciones de trampas de caza prehistóricas en el este de Jordania, sistemas de irrigación del imperio Neo-asirio del primer milenio a.C. en el norte de Irak y de comunidades del siglo XX que habitaban en los humedales del sur de Irak.

The TOMBA project
TOMBA is a multilingual internet image database for tombs of élites in Bronze and Early Iron Age Europe (2400/2300-480/450 BC). The database is localized into Danish, English, French, German, Greek, and Italian.

The Tomba project has been established for understanding of this early european development of se élites. It is meant to provide easy access to se early european élites for public and to offer to scientists possibility of advanced studies.

The project to create image database is supported by European Commission, Directorate General X and established by seven institutes from as many European States.

Among European funerary rites and traditions archaeological remains of prehistoric Bronze and Iron Ages (ca. 2000-0 BC) play an important role. Across Europe, graves of this time illustrate development of complex social systems characterised by a significant degree of social stratification. Burials with rich grave goods, which demonstrate social ranking in after-life as well, are of major importance to this me. The high social renk of buried is visible by grave goods as wagons, weapons, metal vessels and gold artefacts as well as by monumental tomb construction. They represent wide cultural connections and mutualities in burial customs among various culture groups of Europe.

No o r source of information available allows se processes to be followed in such detail. Personages of high rank, or ir successors, endeavoured to express ir social status in form of ir burials; at same time this allowed m to lay claim to a similar status in after-life. The emergence of highly structured societies with a dominant élite went hand in hand with complex processes in production and relations of power, linked systems of distribution, thus leading to intensification of international contacts. Indeed, it seems interdependency between formation of élites and intensification of international contacts was a typical feature of such highly structured societies.

This process began in Minoan and Mycenaean cultures of Greece, where for first time in Europe an advanced civilisation (palace-culture with writing and administration) developed in second millennium BC. From this Aegean core area, élite graves containing swords, gold ornaments and metal-vessels spread out over large parts of Europe. In particular phenomenon in Bronze Age covers a strip of land from sou rn Scandinavia (Denmark) to Greece. Especially in Central Europe, beginning in 13th century BC a model for provision of élites’ tombs developed, including swords, wagons and metal-vessels. In Iron Age also in Italy, eastern Alpine region and eastern France similar developments can be observed in course of Late Bronze and Early Iron Age (10th/9th centuries BC), whereas western Europe from Iberian Peninsula to England and nor rn Scandinavia are lacking such an process. Certain special types of grave goods, as well as specific elements of funerary ritual can be detected far away from Aegean, in a wide region between Mediterranean and sou rn Scandinavia. Research into this data provides evidence of European dimension of this process during Bronze and Iron Ages.

During Iron Age rise of élites intensified especially in Italy and Central Europe.
In historical sources, first kings of Greek and Etruscan city states are said to have been recruited from these élites buried with exclusive grave goods. Until 6th century BC these rulers were buried in monumental tombs with outstanding and splendid grave goods. They are protagonists actively participating in cultural-historical developments in an early stage of Europe.

      2. ed: Consumption of perfumed oil in the ancient Mediterranean and Near East: funerary rituals and other case studies
      No 01 (2014)
      The new series of the journal aims at opening up Classical Antiquity to the whole Mediterranean, refreshingly not in the sense of mare nostrum, presenting the Roman perspective, but showing the multitude of cultural influences that have always characterised this region. It begins with a thematic issue on perfumed oil and immediately broadens the discussion with contributions ranging chronologically from the Bronze Age to late antiquity and covering Nubia, Egypt, the Near East and Greece. All this maintaining high quality in the presentation and the scientific rigour of papers.
