Written by leading scholars inthe 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, andPersia. 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 BC 'agricultural revolution', until the conquest of Alexander the Great that marked the end of the Persian period.

Dieses Buch behandelt ein zentrales Konzept in der mesopotamischen Weltanschauung: den Namen als Grundbestandteil des Menschen, im Leben und nach dem Tod. Im Gegensatz zum organischen Korper ist der Name nicht den Regeln der Sterblichkeit unterworfen und bindet das Individuum auch nach dem Tode ans Diesseits. Um aber diese Form des Weiterlebens zu gewahrleisten, muss der Name so gut wie moglich - mundlich wie auch schriftlich ("geschriebener Name" = Inschrift) - verankert werden; der Bewahrung des Namens kommt deshalb uber die Rolle als Gliederungselement von Erinnerung hinaus die Funktion zu, seinen Trager am Leben zu erhalten.Damit versteht sich die Arbeit als ein Beitrag zum Umgang mit dem Tod, fur Mesopotamien ein kaum erforschtes Gebiet. Die diachrone Behandlung des Themas anhand von Keilschrifttexten aus dem 3. bis 1. vorchristlichen Jahrtausend zeigt, dass der Name als Mittel zum Selbsterhalt eine Konstante der altorientalischen Geisteswelt ist. Es gibt allerdings Entwicklungen, die sich am besten fur den "geschriebenen Namen" fassen lassen, fur dessen Konzeption einschneidende Veranderungen festzustellen sind: Der sich wandelnde Umgang mit dem Namen spiegelt den Wandel im Umgang mit Gegenwart, Vergangenheit und Zukunft in Mesopotamien wider.

The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity offers an innovative overview of a period (c. 300-700 CE) that has become increasingly central to scholarly debates over the history of western and Middle Eastern civilizations. This volume covers such pivotal events as the fall of Rome, the rise of Christianity, the origins of Islam, and the early formation of Byzantium and the European Middle Ages. These events are set in the context of widespread literary, artistic, cultural, and religious change during the period. The geographical scope of this Handbook is unparalleled among comparable surveys of Late Antiquity; Arabia, Egypt, Central Asia, and the Balkans all receive dedicated treatments, while the scope extends to the western kingdoms, and North Africa in the West. Furthermore, from economic theory and slavery to Greek and Latin poetry, Syriac and Coptic literature, sites of religious devotion, and many others, this Handbook covers a wide range of topics that will appeal to scholars from a diverse array of disciplines. The Oxford Handbook of Late Antiquity engages the perennially valuable questions about the end of the ancient world and the beginning of the medieval, while providing a much-needed touchstone for the study of Late Antiquity itself.

The Neolithic - a period in which the first sedentary agrarian communities were established across much of Europe - has been a key topic of archaeological research for over a century. However, the variety of evidence across Europe and the way research traditions in different countries (and languages) have developed makes it very difficult for both students and specialists to gain an overview of continent-wide trends. The Oxford Handbook of Neolithic Europe provides the first comprehensive, geographically extensive, thematic overview of the European Neolithic - from Iberia to Russia and from Norway to Malta - offering both a general introduction and a clear exploration of key issues and current debates surrounding evidence and interpretation. Chapters written by leading experts in the field examine topics such as the movement of plants, animals, ideas, and people (including recent trends in the application of genetics and isotope analyses); cultural change (from the first farming to the first metal artefacts); domestic architecture; subsistence; material culture; monuments; and burial and other treatments of the dead. In doing so, the volume also considers the history of research and sets out agendas and themes for future work in the field.
