San Giovenale, vol. 5, fasc. 1: The Borgo

Now available for purchase and free download at Bokorder.se. Also available at Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Bokus.com, and Adlibris.com. San Giovenale. The Borgo. Excavating an Etruscan Quarter: Architecture and Stratigraphy By Carl Nylander, Börje Blomé, Lars Karlsson, Angela Bizzarro, Giuseppe Tilia, Stefano Tilia & Alessandro Tilia The Etruscan city of San Giovenale was excavated by the Swedish Institute of Classical Studies at Rome between 1956 and 1965. The ancient city plateau consists of two residential areas, the Acropolis and the Borgo, separated by a cut roadway. This publication deals only with the northwest corner of the Borgo (Borgo NW), which was excavated under the direction of Carl Nylander between 1961 and 1965. Here, in a “pocket” at the edge of the plateau, the Etruscans built a small metal working quarter, surrounded by a defensive terrace wall. Protected by the high tufa cliff a series of water cisterns and furnaces were installed. The excavations uncovered four major houses, Houses A, B, C and D, separated from each other by small drains and a Lane K. The houses, the drains and lanes are oriented west–east. A major well is located east and above House C. The most important settlement dates from the early Archaic…

ActaRom-8° , Catalogue , Open Access / 2013-03-22

Now available for purchase and free download at Bokorder.se. Also available at Amazon.com, and Amazon.de. Sylloge inscriptionum Graecarum et Latinarum Upsaliensis. The Greek and Latin inscriptions in the Collections of Uppsala University By Christer Henriksén (ed.) The present book is the first complete edition of the 24 Greek and Latin inscriptions in the Collection of Classical Antiquities and the Victoria Museum of Uppsala University. It contains an introduction that discusses the various types of inscriptions represented in the collections, their probable provenance and their history as part of the Uppsala collections. After the introduction follows the actual edition, which consists of a new reading of text of each inscription, followed (where possible) by an English translation, a summary of its physical and palaeographical features, and a line-by-line commentary. The commentary explains each text with regard to its contents and discusses points of linguistic, phraseologic, and onomastic interest. Inscriptions of particular interest are provided with separate introductions that place them in a wider historical and social context. While the commentary is intended to be useful both to specialists in epigraphy as well as to the general classicist, it also aims at providing such information that may interest the general public. The…

Bones, behaviour and belief

Now available for purchase and free download at Bokorder.se. Also available at Amazon.com, Amazon.de, Bokus.com and Adlibris.com. Bones, behaviour and belief. The zooarchaeological evidence as a source for ritual practice in ancient Greece and beyond By Gunnel Ekroth & Jenny Wallensten (eds.) The importance of the zooarchaeological evidence as a source for ritual practices in ancient Greece is gradually becoming widely recognized. Animal bones form the only category of evidence for Greek cult which is constantly significantly increasing, and they can complement and elucidate the information provided by texts, inscriptions and images. This volume brings together sixteen contributions exploring ritual practices and animal bones from different chronological and geographical perspectives, foremost ancient Greece in the historical period, but also in the Bronze Age and as early as the Neolithic period, as well as Anatolia, France and Scandinavia, providing new empirical evidence from a number of major sanctuaries and cult-places. On a methodological level, the complexity of identifying ritual activity from the zooarchaeological evidence is a recurrent theme, as is the prominence of local variation visible in the bone material, suggesting that the written sources and iconography may offer simplified or idealized versions of the rituals actually performed. Although zooarchaeology needs…
