The Berbati-Limnes Archaeological Survey 1988–1990

Distributed by Astrom Editions. View record at WorldCat. The Berbati-Limnes Archaeological Survey 1988–1990 By Berit Wells & Curtis Runnels (eds.) This volume presents the results of the surface survey carried out in the Berbati Valley and on the Limnes plateau for three seasons between 1988 and 1990. Both in ancient and modern times the two areas differ considerably both economically and politically, which in part is due to the natural environment, Prosímni (Berbati) lying in a fertile valley and Limnes in a mountainous district. The introductory chapter gives a general background to the project, introducing the two villages involved, presenting the objectives and setting out the methods employed in the field. For much of its history the Berbati-Limnes area depended upon external economic systems and powers. Thus the Final Neolithic–Early Helladic pastoral economy can be explained as part of the developments in the Balkans called the Secondary Products Revolution. These changes resulted in the catastrophic soil erosions which more or less depopulated the area at the end of the EH. The recovery was slow. Only towards the end of Middle Helladic does there seem to be a new beginning, which heralds intensive use of the area in the Late Bronze…

Distributed by Astrom Editions. View record at WorldCat. The Tyrant-Slayers of Kritios and Nesiotes. A critical study of the sources and restorations By Sture Brunnsåker Preface More than fifteen years have passed since this book first appeared. This edition is identical with that of 1955, except that I have been allowed to add a list of illustrations, indices, a list of corrigenda and a postscript with bibliographical addenda, dealing with the most important contributions to the discussion since 1955. Sture Brunnsåker, Uppsala, March 1971 Introduction (excerpt) Since , in 1859, Friedrichs created the basis for all further research by identifying the copies at Naples, much has been written about the statues of the Tyrant-Slayers. A variety of problems have been raised and discussed. Some have been solved, others are still under debate. Although a great number of articles and books have dealt with this monument, nobody has so far attempted to classify and examine the whole stock of evidence available to us. The main purpose of this work is to fill this gap. Since the original statues have not survived, we must base our study on the various categories of evidence, literary sources, marble copies, reproductions of the statues in…
