Section 508 Compliant This book examines the architecture of Akrotiri, dealing not only with the building technology, but also with issues of typology, form, and function. It provides an overall picture of the architecture of Akrotiri, including an outline of its town plan, a description of the individual houses, and a discussion of its relationship with Crete and its neighbours in the Eastern Mediterranean. The book is based on the author's personal observations and experience obtained over a fifteen year period (1977-1992) of work at the site of the Akrotiri excavation. This book is confined to the last phase of habitation and the uniquely preserved houses that are seen today.

Mädchen - weibliche Individuen vor dem sozial, juristisch, biologisch etc. definierten Übergang zur 'Frau' - wurden in der altertumswissenschaftlichen Forschung bisher eher selten thematisiert. Diese Lücke schließt der vorliegende Band. Mit 26 Beiträgen in englischer und deutscher Sprache bietet er einen Überblick über den internationalen Forschungsstand: Von theoretischen Überlegungen zu den Nachweismöglichkeiten von 'Mädchen' in der prähistorischen Forschung über zusammenfassende Darstellungen des gegenwärtigen Wissensstandes zu Mädchen im Alten Orient, in Ägypten und in der Ägäischen Bronzezeit zu Spezialstudien über bestimmte Aspekte des Mädchen-Seins in Griechenland und Rom, bis hin zur christlichen Spätantike und den frühmittelalterlichen Gesellschaften. 'Mädchen im Altertum / Girls in Antiquity' ist die um einige Beiträge erweiterte Publikation einer internationalen Tagung gleichen Titels, die 2010 in Berlin von 'FemArc - Netzwerk archäologisch arbeitender Frauen' in Kooperation mit dem Deutschen Archäologischen Institut veranstaltet worden war. Mit Beiträgen von Claudia-Maria Behling, Katrin Bernhardt, Olympia Bobou, Susanne Brather-Walter, Stephanie L. Budin, Eve D'Ambra, Peter Emberger, Susanna E. Fischer, Caitlin C.

Abstract : An olive branch is traditionally a symbol of peace, but not necessarily in the context of chronological problems in the Eastern Mediterranean region and the Near East during the second millennium BC. Cherubini et al. (above) strongly attack the radiocarbon dating by Friedrich et al. (2006) of an ancient olive branch, buried by volcanic tephra during the Minoan Santorini eruption. The criticism stems from their investigation of growth rings in modern olive trees on Santorini. The authors attempt with additional arguments, beyond their botanical investigation, to defend the traditional low chronology of the Santorini eruption of around 1500 BC. However, they ignore other crucial publications with radiocarbon dates concerning the Santorini eruption. In this response, we evaluate and negate their main arguments, and present our own conclusions.

The Bronze Age was a time of affluence and innovation for Crete, a unique "moment" in the early history of architecture that, in a bizarre way, echos the modern world of the 20th century AD. The mythical Daidalos, with his many attributes and tasks, stands for the protoype of "an architect at work," following orders and desires set by his clients and by society. The labyrinth, as a paradigm of order, stands for the primordial idea of architeccture and a metaphor of human existence. In this book, architecture is the protagonist and phenomoneology the basic tool of thought. It addresses archaeologists, architectural historians, and architects alike, in the hope that it will prove useful to those interested in understanding the Minoan world through its architecture as much as those interested in exploring architecture through the Minoan paradigm.

Among Women

Women's and men's worlds were largely separate in ancient Mediterranean societies, and, in consequence, many women's deepest personal relationships were with other women. Yet relatively little scholarly or popular attention has focused on women's relationships in antiquity, in contrast to recent interest in the relationships between men in ancient Greece and Rome. The essays in this book seek to close this gap by exploring a wide variety of textual and archaeological evidence for women's homosocial and homoerotic relationships from prehistoric Greece to fifth-century CE Egypt. Drawing on developments in feminist theory, gay and lesbian studies, and queer theory, as well as traditional textual and art historical methods, the contributors to this volume examine representations of women's lives with other women, their friendships, and sexual subjectivity. They present new interpretations of the evidence offered by the literary works of Sappho, Ovid, and Lucian; Bronze Age frescoes and Greek vase painting, funerary reliefs, and other artistic representations; and Egyptian legal documents.
