Ein Trojanischer Federkrieg: Die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Ernst Boetticher und Heinrich Schliemann

Wien 2009

Ein Trojanischer Federkrieg: Die Auseinandersetzungen zwischen Ernst Boetticher und Heinrich Schliemann In December 1883, a dispute began between Ernst Boetticher and Heinrich Schliemann over the latter’s interpretation of his research in Troy.

Time’s Up! Dating the Minoan Eruption of Santorini. Acts of the Minoan Eruption Chronology Workshop, Sandbjerg November 2007 initiated by Jan Heinemeier and Walter L. Friedrich A collection of 21 papers from the workshop Minoan Eruption Chronology, held at Sandbjerg (Denmark) in November 2007. The book presents new evidence about the absolute date of the “Minoan” eruption of the Santorini volcano. Worth of mention is the question of the editor: “Should archaeologists stop quibbling about details of chronological arguments which belonged to the past, and simply discuss the chronological and historical implications of the new date?”

New Directions in the Skeletal Biology of Greece

Princeton, N.J. 2009

New Directions in the Skeletal Biology of Greece The papers in this book reflect current studies being conducted in the field of bioarchaeology in Greece. The authors present material ranging in date from the Palaeolithic to modern times. Biological anthropologists working in the Mediterranean region can draw on a wealth of archaeological and documentary evidence to inform their hypotheses. This book shows how scientific approaches to the past are shedding new light on previously insoluble questions. In addition to presenting a number of case studies, the editors provide a synthetic survey of the subject.

The British Consular Service in the Aegean and the Collection of Antiquities for the British Museum

Farnham 2009

The British Consular Service in the Aegean and the Collection of Antiquities for the British Museum The book tells the story of how the British consular service in the Aegean, in the years of the British protectorate of the Ionian Islands (1815-1864) became an agency for the retrieval, excavation and collection of antiquities eventually destined for the British Museum. Exploring the historical, political and diplomatic circumstances that allowed the consular service to develop from a chartered company into a state run institution under the direction of the Foreign Office, it provides a unique perspective on the intersection of state policy, private ambition, and the collecting of antiquities.

Thesprotia Expedition I. Towards a Regional History

Helsinki 2009

Thesprotia Expedition I. Towards a Regional History This volume originates in the Thesprotian colloquium that was organised in June 2006 in Athens by the Finnish Institute at Athens and the 8th Ephorate for Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities. As several of the papers given at the colloquium already have been published elsewhere, this volume includes less than half of the original papers. Instead new chapters written by members of the Thesprotia Expedition or by other colleagues working in the region have been added.
