→ Verlags-Link

» Guess Who's Coming to Dinner examines how specific types of food were prepared and eaten during feasting rituals in prehistoric Europe and the Near East. Such rituals allowed people to build and maintain their power and prestige and to maintain or contest the status quo. At the same time, they also contributed to the inner cohesion and sense of community of a group. When eating and drinking together, people share thoughts and beliefs and perceive the world and human relationships in a certain way. The twelve contribu-tions to this book reflect the main theoretical and methodological issues related to the study of food and feasting in prehistoric Europe and the Near East. The book is introduced by Ferrán Adrià, considered to be the world's greatest chef. Famed for his'molecular gastronomy', he invented the technique of reducing foods to their essence and then changing how they are presented, for example in the form of foam. In 2010,he was named Best Chef of the Decade by the prestigious Restaurant magazine. « [Verlagstext]

Culture and change in Central European prehistory

Culture-and-Change.jpg Vandkilde, Helle: Culture and change in Central European prehistory, 6th to 1st millennium BC, Aarhus: Aarhus University Press 2007
→ Verlags-Link

» This book is a cohesive overview of Central European prehistory from the introduction of agriculture around 6000 BC to the state-forming processes that began to emerge during the first millennium BC. A com-plex mosaic of culture, society and processes is mirrored in the material world and in certain periods involves a large part of the Eurasian continent. Culture and change must be understood as both localised and macro-regional: the book is a cultural-historical tale - inspired by, for example, the attempts of French historians to integrate different levels of history. Emphasis is laid on the eventful boom periods where innovations and cross-cultural interaction intensified in such a way that history's mainly reproductive pattern was broken. Important turning points are attached, among other things, to the first production of food, copper- and bronze metallurgy, and the sword as a weapon and symbol. These technical innovations were part of a com-plicated interaction with social and cultural processes, which in many cases are connected in a pattern that can be followed in time and space. « [Verlagstext]

Bodies in Conflict

Bodies-in-Conflict.jpg Cornish, Paul ; Saunders, Nicholas J. (Hrsg.): Bodies in conflict. Corporeality, materiality, and transformation. London and New York: Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group 2014
→ Verlags-Link

» Focused on material culture, Bodies in Conflict revitalizes investigations into the physical and symbolic worlds of modern conflict and that have defined us as subjects through memory, imagination, culture and technology. The chapters in this book present an interdisciplinary approach which draws upon, but does not privilege archaeology, anthropology, military and cultural history, art history, cultural geography, and mu-seum and heritage studies. The complexity of modern conflict demands a coherent, integrated, and sensitized hybrid approach which calls on different disciplines where they overlap in a shared common terrain - that of the materiality of conflict and its aftermath in relation to the human body. Bodies in Conflict brings together the diverse interests and expertise of a host of disciplines to create a new intellectual engagement with our corpo-real nature in times of conflict. « [Verlagstext]

Mapping Archaeological Landscapes from Space

Mapping-Archaeological-Landscapes-from-Space.jpg Comer, Douglas C. ; Harrower, Michael J.: Mapping archaeological landscapes from space (Springer-Briefs in Archaeology. 5), New York: Springer 2013
→ Verlags-Link

» Mapping Archaeological Landscapes from Space offers a concise overview of air and spaceborne imagery and related geospatial technologies tailored to the needs of archaeologists. Leading experts including scientists involved in NASA’s Space Archaeology program provide technical introductions to five sections:
  • 1) Historic Air and Spaceborne Imagery
  • 2) Multispectral and Hyperspectral Imagery
  • 3) Synthetic Aperture Radar
  • 4) Lidar
  • 5) Archaeological Site Detection and Modeling.
Each of these five sections includes two or more case study applications that have enriched understanding of archaeological landscapes in regions including the Near East, East Asia, Europe, Meso- and North America. Tar-geted to the needs of researchers and heritage managers as well as graduate and advanced undergraduate stu-dents, this volume conveys a basic technological sense of what is currently possible and, it is hoped, will inspire new pioneering applications.
