New Agendas in Remote Sensing and Landscape Archaeology in the Near East is a collection of papers produced in honour of Tony James Wilkinson, who was Professor of Archaeology at Durham University from 2006 until his death in 2014. Though commemorative in concept, the volume is an assemblage of new research representing emerging agendas and innovative methods in remote sensing. The intention is to explore the opportunities and challenges faced by researchers in the field today, and the tools, techniques, and theoretical approaches available to resolve them within the framework of landscape archaeology. The papers build on the traditional strengths of landscape archaeology, such as geoarchaeology and settlement pattern analysis, as well as integrating data sources to address major research questions, such as the ancient economy, urbanism, water management and the treatment of the dead. The authors demonstrate the importance of an interdisciplinary approach for understanding the impact of human activity on shaping the landscape and the effect that landscape has on sociocultural development.

La religion des femmes en Grèce ancienne: Mythes, cultes et société

La religion des femmes en Grèce ancienne: Mythes, cultes et société
La religion des femmes en Grèce ancienne
  • Éditeur : Presses universitaires de Rennes
  • Collection : Histoire
  • Lieu d’édition : Rennes
  • Année d’édition : 2009
  • Publication sur OpenEdition Books : 25 août 2020
  • Nombre de pages : 282 p.
Vingt ans après la publication de La Fille d’Athènes, Mythes, cultes et société, ouvrage majeur de Pierre Brulé, il convient de suivre les traces de ces petites Athéniennes, sans doute devenues épouses et mères et, chemin faisant, de revenir sur les travaux pionniers de cet helléniste hors norme. En effet, il importe de se mettre en quête de la place que le féminin tient dans les mythes et les rites grecs, de reconsidérer la vision que les hommes proposent des pratiques religieuses des femmes et de revisiter les divinités qui les concernent plus spécifiquement, autant de pistes abordées dans le présent ouvrage.
Il s’agit de se demander comment les femmes grecques appréhendaient le domaine cultuel et si elles le faisaient d’une manière particulière, spécifique à leur « nature féminine ». S’agissait-il d’un des seuls domaines dans lequel elles auraient pu trouver une forme d’expression publique et de reconnaissance sociale ? Peut-on parler encore de « citoyenneté cultuelle » pour les femmes grecques ? Il convient toutefois de ne jamais oublier que la « religion des filles c’est celle que les hommes font fonctionner, et d’une certaine façon, utilisent ».
Dans le présent volume des contributions sont rassemblées et organisées autour de trois parties : les figures féminines, déesses et héroïnes ; les mots et les noms du féminin et, enfin, les passages et les transmissions féminins.

Webinar: Live from the Agora - The Royal Stoa

Live from the Agora - The Royal Stoa
About the Webinar: 
The Athenian Agora was the economic, political and legal center of the ancient city. Located in the heart of modern Athens and attracting more than half a million international visitors annually, the American School has conducted excavations at the site since 1931. 
In the lead-up to our 90th anniversary of the Athenian Agora Excavations, the American School of Classical Studies is pleased to announce a series of webinars that highlight important buildings, monuments and moments throughout the history of these excavations.
The Royal Stoa was one of the most important buildings for the administration of Athens.
Identified by Pausanias as the "office" of the King Archon, the second most important political and religious position in Athens, this was the site where Socrates was indicted for impiety, importing new gods and corrupting the youth of the city in 399 BC.
Join John Camp, Director of Excavations in the Agora, for a behind the scenes tour of this incredible monument to the Athenian democracy.

About the Speaker:
John McK. Camp II is one of the best known archaeologists in the world and is regarded as the foremost expert on the topography of Athens and Attica. Dr. Camp's long association with the American School’s Athenian Agora excavations dates back to 1966, when he first served as Field Supervisor, later as Assistant Director, and currently as Director (since 1994).
 He received his A.B. in Classics from Harvard University (1968), and his M.A. (1972) and Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology (1977) from Princeton University. He was the Andrew W. Mellon Professor at the American School from 1985 to 1996, and since then has served on the faculty of Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia, where he is the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Professor of Classics.

In 1895–96, William Matthew Flinders Petrie and James Edward Quibell discovered a shaft-tomb below the ‘Ramesseum', the funerary temple of Ramses II at Thebes, Egypt. This is most famous for having the largest group of Middle Kingdom papyri – also known as the Ramesseum Papyri – found in a single spot together with a number of distinctive objects, such as carved ivory tusks and miniature figurines in various materials dated around XVIII century BC. Gianluca Miniaci attempts to thoroughly reconstruct the archaeological context of the tomb: the exact find spot (forgotten afterwards its discovery), its architecture, the identity of its owner(s) and recipient(s) of the assemblage of artefacts. A detailed analysis of the single artefacts – provided for the first with full color photographic records and drawings – and their network of relations gives new life to the Ramesseum assemblage after more than a century from its discovery.

Open Access Journal: Bioarchaeology of the Near East

[First posted in AWOL 13 July 2009. Updated 28 August 2020]

Bioarchaeology of the Near East
Printed version ISSN: 1898-9403
Online ISSN: 1899-962X
Bioarchaeology of the Near East (printed version ISSN 1898-9403, online ISSN 1899-962X) is published annually in one volume. The aim of the journal is to promote research on the history of human populations inhabiting South-Western Asia (chiefly Mesopotamia, Syria, Palestine, Anatolia, Iran, and Egypt). It will publish original contributions in which methods of physical anthropology and bioarchaeology are used to answer historical questions. Three kinds of texts will be considered for publication: original papers, general review articles (especially those focussing on methodological issues), and short fieldwork reports. Papers of two first categories will be subject to peer review.

The editors welcome contributions focusing on the biological background of historical processes observed in past populations in the region where most ancient civilisations of the Old World emerged. This includes large-scale studies e.g., on migrations, secular trends, microevolution, temporal changes or regional differences in the quality of life, disease patterns or demographical profiles, but also local studies or diagnostic case studies of distinguished individuals. Papers using not only biological, but also archaeological and textual evidence are mostly appreciated. For more effective exchange of information the journal also includes short fieldwork reports on human remains excavated at archaeological sites located in the region of interest.

Articulando professores, doutorandos e mestrandos da área da literatura bíblica, bem como da história da antiguidade para o estudo da apocalíptica judaica e cristã primitiva, com métodos da história da religião e da exegese bíblica, o propósito foi, durante muito tempo, publicar artigos sobre apocalíptica, profecia e fenômenos visionários dos pesquisadores do grupo e de seus interlocutores no Brasil e no exterior.
A partir do décimo quinto número, no entanto, a revista estendeu o seu horizonte de interesses para os estudos de cristianismo primitivo, incluindo aí Novo Testamento, textos apócrifos, religiosidades mediterrâneas, judaísmo em aspectos literários, históricos, metodológicos etc. Ao não mais se restringir a certo gênero literário ou tipo de religiosidade específica, a Revista Oracula colabora para o fortalecimento de publicações e pesquisas nessa área incipiente – ainda que promissora – na pós-graduação brasileira.

L'Enfant et la mort dans l'Antiquité / EMA

L'Enfant et la mort dans l'Antiquité / EMA
Dans le domaine de l'archéologie funéraire antique, les avancées méthodologiques (archéo-anthropologie, histoire sociale) et l'accroissement régulier de la documentation n'ont pas fait l’objet de larges synthèses. En centrant la recherche sur le cas des enfants (jusqu'à 12-14 ans) et en s'appuyant sur un réseau international, les archéologues et anthropologues impliqués dans le programme "L’Enfant et la mort dans l’Antiquité, des pratiques funéraires à l’identité sociale" (EMA), financé par l’Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR), ont tenté de faire évoluer cette situation entre 2008 et 2012, avec un ensemble de sites représentatifs de l'ensemble "chrono-culturel" défini (le monde antique grec et romain, du début du Ier millénaire av. J.-C. à la fin de l'Antiquité).

Les trois partenaires du programme, le Centre Camille Jullianà Aix-en-Provence (pour le monde grec colonial et le monde romain d’Occident), l’UMR Archéologies et Sciences de l’Antiquité (pour le monde grec continental et égéen) et le Centre d’Études Alexandrines (Alexandrie et l’Égypte gréco-romaine), ont rassemblé une part importante de cette documentation dans la base de données ici accessible.

Parallèlement, les principaux thèmes définis au début du programme (topographie et marqueurs des tombes, types de sépultures et traitement des corps, offrandes et autres pratiques rituelles) ont été débattus dans des tables rondes internationales dont les résultats ont été publiés.

Open Access Journal: CLARA Classical Art and Archaeology

[First posted in AWOL 30 March 2018, updated 31 August 2020]

CLARA Classical Art and Archaeology
ISSN: 2464-3726
So-called muse, from the Ustinow Collection, Museum of Cultural History, University of Oslo. Copyrighted material.
CLARA is an open access journal hosted by the Museum of Cultural History at the University of Oslo and administered by an international Editorial Board. The main objective is to annually publish papers of a high academic quality within the field of Classical Art and Archaeology and to make them accessible to a wide scholarly public.
  • CLARA Special issue: Perceiving Matter. Visual, Material and Sensual Communication from Antiquity to the Middle Ages and Beyond
    Vol 5 (2020)
    The twenty-first century has witnessed a growing interest in antique and medieval polychromy. By now it is generally acknowledged that colour is an integral part of their sculpture. In the present special issue of CLARA, scholars from various disciplines explore different aspects of sculptural polychromy in marble, glass, stucco, wood and terracotta – from Antiquity to the Renaissance: The multisensory perception of colour, the interplay of colour and texture, the treatment of sculpted surfaces, the importance of gilding and polishes, and the challenges when reconstructing lost polychromy. Combining empirical and theoretical data, the special issue includes hitherto unpublished colour reconstructions and scientific details.
    Photo: Female head. Parian marble. Found in Athens, in the Odeion of Herodes Atticus. It comes from an acrolithic statue of a goddess. The inlaid eyes were made of ivory, the irises were made of dark stone and the eyelashes of metal. The hair was painted in red colour. Copy of an original work of the 5th or 4th century BC. 2nd century AD. ​
