From huts to houses

Distributed by Astrom Editions. See record at WorldCat. From huts to houses. Transformations of ancient societies. Proceedings of an international seminar organized by the Norwegian and Swedish Institutes in Rome, 21–24 September 1997 J. Rasmus Brandt & Lars Karlsson, eds. The present volume contains 43 of the 43 announced papers and 11 posters presented at an international conference in Rome in 1997. In a cross-cultural context, the papers examine various aspects of transformation processes connected with architectural changes, covering themes such as building types and development, building function, building technology, and finance and organization. Within this framework, the investigations span a long era, extending from the Mesolithic period to modern times, including experimental reconstructions of ancient dwellings. From the geographical and cultural point of view the contributions cover the Middle East and Europe from the Arabian deserts to the Arctic Ocean, though with a slight emphasis on central Italy in the Iron Age. The last article is a translation from Swedish to English of a study on shepherd huts in the Roman campagna made by S. Erixon in 1932, an article often quoted in studies on primitive architecture, but not easily accessible to all. Bibliographical information J. Rasmus Brandt &…

Fortification towers and masonry techniques
ActaRom-4° / 1992-01-01

Published by the Swedish Institute of Classical Studies in Rome. Distributed by Astrom Editions. Fortification towers and masonry techniques in the hegemony of Syracuse, 405–211 B.C. By Lars Karlsson Syracuse assumed the leadership of the Greek cities after the Carthaginian wars of 409–405 B.C. and the first chapter discusses the four main periods which can be discerned in the archaeological material: (1) the rule of Dionysios I, 405–367 B.C., (2) the period of Timoleon, 244–c. 316 B.C., (3) Agathokles, 316–289 B.C., and (4) the rule of King Hieron II, 270/69–215 B.C. Pyrrhos, as king of Syracuse in 278–276 B.C., was also responsible for work on Sicilian fortifications. Towers with internal crosswalls are treated in Chapter Two and they appear in two types. The first group consists of seven towers with internal walls in the shape of a T (the ‘Epipolai Towers’). The towers are large and square, measuring 10–12 m. (around 30–35 Doric ft.) on a side. The second group of towers with interior walls in the shape of a Greek cross, is common in Sicily. Twelve square examples are known (plus two circular and two semicircular). The square towers frequently measure 6.60 m. (20 Doric ft.) on a side….
