This Handbook aims to serve as a research guide to the archaeology of the Levant, an area situated at the crossroads of the ancient world that linked the eastern Mediterranean, Anatolia, Mesopotamia, and Egypt. The Levant as used here is a historical geographical term referring to a large area which today comprises the modern states of Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, western Syria, and Cyprus, as well as the West Bank, Gaza, and the Sinai. Unique in its treatment of the entire region, it offers a comprehensive overview and analysis of the current state of the archaeology of the Levant within its larger cultural, historical, and socio-economic contexts. The Handbook also attempts to bridge the modern scholarly and political divide between archaeologists working in this highly contested region. Written by leading international scholars in the field, it focuses chronologically on the Neolithic through Persian periods - a time span during which the Levant was often in close contact with the imperial powers of Egypt, Anatolia, Assyria, Babylon, and Persia. This volume will serve as an invaluable reference work for those interested in a contextualised archaeological account of this region, beginning with the tenth millennium BCE 'agricultural revolution', until the conquest of Alexander the Great that marked the end of the Persian period.

The archaeological study of the ancient world has become increasingly popular in recent years. A Research Guide to the Ancient World: Print and Electronic Sources, is a partially annotated bibliography. The study of the ancient world is usually, although not exclusively, considered a branch of the humanities, including archaeology, art history, languages, literature, philosophy, and related cultural disciplines which consider the ancient cultures of the Mediterranean world, and adjacent Egypt and southwestern Asia. Chronologically the ancient world would extend from the beginning of the Bronze Age of ancient Greece (ca. 1000 BCE) to the fall of the Western Roman Empire (ca. 500 CE). This book will close the traditional subject gap between the humanities (Classical World; Egyptology) and the social sciences (anthropological archaeology; Near East) in the study of the ancient world. This book is uniquely the only bibliographic resource available for such holistic coverage. The volume consists of 17 chapters and seven appendixes, arranged according to the traditional types of library research materials (bibliographies, dictionaries, atlases, etc.). The appendixes are mostly subject specific, including graduate programs in ancient studies, reports from significant archaeological sites, numismatics, and paleography and writing systems. These extensive author and subject indexes help facilitate ease of use.

Late Bronze Age Aegean cooking vessels illuminate prehistoric cultures, foodways, social interactions, and communication systems. While many scholars have focused on the utility of painted fineware vessels for chronological purposes, the contributors to this volume maintain that cooking wares have the potential to answer not only chronological but also economic, political, and social questions when analysed and contrasted with assemblages from different sites or chronological periods. The text is dedicated entirely to prehistoric cooking vessels, compiles evidence from a wide range of Greek sites and incorporates new methodologies and evidence. The contributors utilise a wide variety of analytical approaches and demonstrate the impact that cooking vessels can have on the archaeological interpretation of sites and their inhabitants. These sites include major Late Bronze Age citadels and smaller settlements throughout the Aegean and surrounding Mediterranean area, including Greece, the islands, Crete, Italy, and Cyprus. In particular, contributors highlight socio-economic connections by examining the production methods, fabrics and forms of cooking vessels. Recent improvements in excavation techniques, advances in archaeological sciences, and increasing attention to socioeconomic questions make this is an opportune time to renew conversations about and explore new approaches to cooking vessels and what they can teach us.

An Archaeology Of Prehistoric Bodies And Embodied Identities In The Eastern Mediterranean

In the long tradition of the archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean bodies have held a prominent role in the form of figurines, frescos, or skeletal remains, and have even been responsible for sparking captivating portrayals of the Mother-Goddess cult, the elegant women of Minoan Crete or the deeds of heroic men. Growing literature on the archaeology and anthropology of the body has raised awareness about the dynamic and multifaceted role of the body in experiencing the world and in the construction, performance and negotiation of social identity. In these 28 thematically arranged papers, specialists in the archaeology of the eastern Mediterranean confront the perceived invisibility of past bodies and ask new research questions. Contributors discuss new and old evidence; they examine how bodies intersect with the material world, and explore the role of body-situated experiences in creating distinct social and other identities. Papers range chronologically from the Palaeolithic to the Early Iron Age and cover the geographical regions of the Aegean, Cyprus and the Near East. They highlight the new possibilities that emerge for the interpretation of the prehistoric eastern Mediterranean through a combined use of body-focused methodological and theoretical perspectives that are nevertheless grounded in the archaeological record.

A quarant’anni dal rinvenimento delle sculture e dello straordinario sito di Mont’e Prama, una necropoli caratterizzata da più fasi di utilizzo, unica in tutta la Sardegna per tipologia e articolazione, a conclusione del restauro dei frammenti scultorei, completato in anni recentissimi, vede la luce l’edizione integrale degli scavi degli anni ’70 del secolo scorso, necessario supporto alla ripresa delle ricerche e doveroso atto di restituzione alla comunità scientifica delle informazioni dettagliate che caratterizzano l’importante complesso archeologico. Nel corso dei decenni si sono seguite innumerevoli pubblicazioni sui diversi aspetti del dato archeologico; va rilevato tuttavia che il dato stesso non ha mai avuto un’edizione integrale, dettagliata e analitica come finalmente avviene grazie alla stampa di questo volume; in esso vi sono i resoconti delle ricerche degli anni ’70, corredati da una ricca serie di interventi di inquadramento generale o viceversa di approfondimento dei singoli dettagli della ricerca. Si ha inoltre per la prima volta il catalogo completo delle sculture ricostruite, tassello indispensabile alla conoscenza approfondita di questo nuovo sorprendente aspetto della cultura artistica della civiltà nuragica. Il volume dunque costituisce uno strumento imprescindibile di conoscenza per chiunque intenda cimentarsi con una proposta di analisi, di lettura, di inquadramento del complesso archeologico di Mont’e Prama, oltre e al di fuori delle controversie susseguitesi sino ad oggi, appoggiando il proprio lavoro su un dato archeologico finalmente completo e approfondito. MARCO MINOJA è stato per cinque anni alla direzione della Soprintendenza per i beni archeologici di Cagliari e Oristano e per un più breve periodo anche Soprintendente ad interim per Sassari e Nuoro; attualmente ricopre il ruolo di Soprintendente archeologo in Emilia Romagna. Specialista in etruscologia, si è formato all’Università degli studi di Milano; ha al suo attivo ricerche e studi in diverse regioni d’Italia, sfociate in monografie curatele e articoli, oltre che nella propria disciplina, nei campi dell’arte antica, degli studi iconografici ma anche delle politiche di tutela e gestione del patrimonio archeologico italiano.
