Henri Duday is Director of Research for CNRS at the University of Bordeaux. The Archaeology of the Dead is based on an intensive specialist course in burial archaeology given by Duday in Rome in November 2004. The primary aim of the project was to contribute to the development of common procedures for excavation, data collection and study of Roman cemeteries of the imperial period. Translated into English by Anna Maria Cipriani and John Pearce, this book looks at the way in which the analysis of skeletons can allow us to re-discover the lives of people who came before us and inform us of their view of death. Duday throughly examines the means at our disposal to allow the dead to speak, as well as identifying the pitfalls that may deceive us.

Rescue excavations were carried out along the terrace north of Ancient Corinth by Henry Robinson, the director of the Corinth Excavations, and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens on behalf of the Greek Archaeological Service, in 1961 and 1962. They revealed 70 tile graves, limestone sarcophagi, and cremation burials (the last are rare in Corinth before the Julian colony), and seven chamber tombs (also rare before the Roman period). The burials ranged in date from the 5th century B.C. to the 6th century A.D., and about 240 skeletons were preserved for study. This volume publishes the results of these excavations and examines the evidence for changing burial practices in the Greek city, Roman colony, and Christian town. Documented are single graves and deposits, the Robinson “Painted Tomb,” two more hypogea, and four built chamber tombs. Ethne Barnes describes the human skeletal remains, and David Reese discusses the animal bones found in the North Terrace tombs. The author further explores the architecture of the chamber tombs as well as cemeteries, burial practices, and funeral customs in ancient Corinth. One appendix addresses a Roman chamber tomb at nearby Hexamilia, excavated in 1937; the second, by David Jordan, the lead tablets from a chamber tomb and its well. Concordances, grave index numbers, Corinth inventory numbers, and indexes follow. This study will be of interest to classicists, historians of several periods, and scholars studying early Christianity.

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

Denkt man an die Geschichte der Deutschen, so liegen darauf immer noch – und aus erklärlichen Gründen – die langen Schatten des «Dritten Reichs». Aber muss man deshalb die gesamte deutsche Vergangenheit, auch das, was viel weiter zurückliegt, nach wie vor mit spitzen Fingern anfassen? Nein, meint Simon Winder. Und so begibt er sich auf Spurensuche und erzählt uns neu, was zwischen der Zeit der Germanen und dem Beginn des NS-Regimes geschah. Dabei fasziniert ihn besonders das Ungewöhnliche und das, was man davon heute noch sehen kann. Er zeigt uns die schönsten Altstadtkerne, führt uns in Museen, Schlösser und Kirchen, daran entzünden sich locker plaudernde Geschichtsstunden über Künstlernaturen und Kriegswirren, über Wagner und Wald, über Erbfolgen, Einsamkeit und Erfindergeist. Und schließlich erfährt er – ausgerechnet bei einem Schostakowitsch-Stück, das im Hofbräuhaus erklingt –, was das heutige Deutschland trotz oder gerade wegen seiner komplexen Geschichte so besonders macht ...

English summary: Funeral rituals, but also the ongoing cult of the dead, present socially highly relevant communication situations. These contributions of a colloquium at the College de France and of the focused program Imperial and Provincial Religion study whether practices of social differentiation, media, or religious innovation can be detected during the Roman Empire. These practices have been detected in other social sectors and are classified as Romanized or as a "training of provincial culture." German text. German description: Rituale bei der Bestattung, aber auch fortdauernder Totenkult stellen gesellschaftlich hochrelevante Kommunikationssituationen dar. Diese Beitrage eines Kolloquiums des College de France und des Schwerpunktprogramms aReichs- und Provinzialreligion untersuchen fuer die romische Kaiserzeit, ob sich hier Praktiken sozialer Differenzierung, medialer oder religioser Innovation aufspueren lassen - wie sie fuer andere gesellschaftliche Bereiche als aRomanisierung oder aAusbildung von Provinzialkulturen in der Forschung diskutiert werden.
