  • The MB II A-B Bowl from Horbat Yoah

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: During archaeological excavations at Horbat Yoah, a zoomorphic vessel representing a bird-bowl was found among other pottery vessels in one of the five excavated tombs, possibly belonging to a large cemetery dated to the Middle Bronze IIA period. Pottery vessels in the shape of animals or birds were popular in the early periods of history and were often repeated in their designs, bearing similar features. An intensive search of close parallels for our bowl has not been successful. The Horbat Yoah bird-bowl is distinguished by a special iconography and deserves an article discussing its shape, form and ethnic influences through the Levant during the said period.

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This paper deals with the question of why doorstone monuments and Phrygian names aswell as <i>Lallnamen</i> became popular in Phrygia during the Roman Imperial period. Taking new and existing epigraphic and archaeological evidence into account, the paper approaches this question in terms of onomastic, funerary culture, historical geography and religion.

  • The Fantastic Three Thousand

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: In classical literature and interpretations of local archaeology, elephants are strongly associated with the kingdom of Meroe in the Sudan (<i>ca.</i> 300 BC-AD 400). This paper seeks to locate the extent to which Meroe played an active part in the development of this association, which it argues was cultivated for protection. It uses evidence recorded about the Nile Expedition of the Roman emperor Nero to reassess the authority given to classical accounts for both elephant and rhinoceros.

  • The identification of Xenophon's Kerasous

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This article re-examines a very old issue in the study of the Black Sea history and topography: the placement of Kerasous, the city visited by Xenophon and mentioned by him as colony of Sinope. Two sites on the southern Black Sea coast have been proposed as having hosted this city, Giresun and Vakf'kebir. None of them has ever yielded any archaeological evidence to support such identification, though. Therefore, scholars have always been attempting to draw conclusions based solely on the words of Xenophon. The issue is here examined from a different viewpoint: a specific GIS technique called Cost Surface Analysis, which is widely used by spatial analysis in archaeology, is applied to our area of interest, and provides us with an impressive result.

  • The Archaeological Site of Pistiros

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This paper presents the archaeological site of Pistiros in Bulgaria as a case study, supposing to contribute to the debate of the nature of archaeological thinking and practice in contemporary archaeology. It does not intend to evaluate the archaeology of the site <i>per se</i> but rather to focus on the processes of producing knowledge about it in the institutional framework of the academic research culture in Bulgaria. The site is seen as a venture challenging the outdated culture-historical approaches through the immense contribution of Mieczys'aw Domaradzki, unfolding space for new research resources and collaborative strategies within the Mediterranean.

  • Reassessing Syracusan 'Colonisation' in Archaic-Period
           South-Eastern Sicily

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The expansion of Syracuse across south-eastern Sicily in the Archaic period has long been placed within the historiographic construct of colonisation. This construct contains domination-based ideologies through militaristic means. Recent evidence re-analysed within post-colonial methodologies provides new avenues in which the expansion of Syracuse can be realised. Overall, Syracuse established its settlements in strategic areas to limit the incursion of other Greek settlements, while claiming more land and developing trade routes with which to gain wealth and socio-political power. This was accomplished, in part, through peaceful relations with its Sicilian neighbours.

  • The Rise of Militarisation in the Van, Sevan and Orumiyeh Basins

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This article is the second of three dedicated to the large-scale development over time of militarisation processes in the areas around lakes Van, Sevan and Orumiyeh. The first article discussed the problem especially from a methodological perspective; this contribution instead aims at a precise investigation of the archaeological evidence relating to war and the aspects of militarisation associated with the communities that lived in these territories between the Early Bronze Age and the Middle Iron Age. The picture that emerges according to our reconstruction hypothesis differs significantly from what has been proposed and accepted by a large part of the academic community, especially as regards the methods and timing of the onset of militarisation processes. In fact, we think that the Middle Bronze Age played a much more important role in these processes than has been generally believed to date. Militarisation, from the data presented, would no longer seem to have been a sporadic and rather random process but rather a gradual and constant development that reached its peak, in the time-frame examined, with the birth of the state of Urartu.
