Prof. Dr. Steven Ellis  •  Department of Classics, University of Cincinnati

The (Re)Shaping of Pompeii in the Early Imperial Period: New insights from the Porta Stabia neighbourhood

Much is already well known about the urban shape of Pompeii by the time of its destruction in 79 CE.  And though good inroads have been made into the various developments over time that brought it to this shape, still not all of these readings benefit from the sub-soil excavations of more recent years that have targeted the episodic growth spurts of the city.  This lecture draws on some recent excavations at Pompeii to show the extent to which some of the most pivotal changes to the city occurred in the early Imperial period.  These excavations, under the auspices of the University of Cincinnati and the American Academy in Rome, targeted two town blocks of the city, as well as several adjacent, civic structures (the fortification wall and gate, the streets, and the Quadriporticus); the excavations covered more than ten separate building plots (c. 4000m2) made up of shops, houses, and hospitality establishments.  This ‘behind-the-scenes’ view of some of the latest excavations at Pompeii opens up an entirely new perspective on the city, with a special focus on the developments that reshaped the city - both socially and structurally - in the early Imperial period.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Animated stones and animal sacrifices in the highlands of Odisha (India): environment as socio-cosmic order”

10.05.2021 von 16:15 bis 17:45

Virtuelles Treffen

Prof. Dr. Roland Hardenberg  •  Institut für Ethnologie, Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main

Animated stones and animal sacrifices in the highlands of Odisha (India): environment as socio-cosmic order

This presentation focuses on the ritual practices of swidden cultivators in the highlands of Odisha (India) called Dongria Kond, who are recognised as one of the many tribal societies and original inhabitants (“Adivasi”) of this area. Like other Kond tribes, they regularly practice large scale buffalo sacrifices to their earth goddess, who is represented by a stone setting in the center of each village. The earth goddess is regarded as the mother of the Kond and is responsible for their well-being. However, she is only one of the many deities and spiritual beings who according to the Kond populate their environment. The sun and the moon, the wind and the rain, mountains and hills, plants and animals, forests and rivers – the whole socio-cosmic space is, in the view of the Kond, populated by various powers with whom they maintain relationships. Ritual practices such as the buffalo sacrifices are major occasions when these relationships are activated and maintained through communication, possession and the sacrifice of animals and food. Some of these divine actors are represented by stones of varying sizes, including large megaliths representing the husband of the earth goddess. The presentation will particularly focus on the nexus between stones, deities, social categories, sacrificial offerings, and local notions of well-being.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Social change and textile technology: a comparative perspective on the Aegean, Italy, and central Europe during the first millennium BC”

Virtuelles Treffen

Dr. Bela Dimova  •  British School at Athens

Social change and textile technology: a comparative perspective on the Aegean, Italy, and central Europe during the first millennium BC

This paper will explore the roles which textiles and textile technology played in periods of social change among different societies in the Aegean, the Italic peninsula, and central Europe. We will focus on two main themes: social stratification and the changing organisation of production. During the 8th–5th century BC, societies in different parts of Europe underwent parallel developments, including the increase in visible hierarchies and the growth of settlements, sometimes categorised as urban. The conspicuous consumption of textiles, played an important role in this process. Elites used textiles in different ways in key arenas of social competition – burials, weddings, religious activities. The archaeological record for this includes remains of cloth in burials, iconography of dress and furnishings, in addition to literary sources. We will explore the parallels and different regional traditions in the ways elites used textiles to assert and materialise local identities or wider connections, to show off wealth or demureness. The organisation of textile production offers another perspective on social change, by considering the issues of standardisation, specialisation, and the growing importance of exchange. While some aspects of textile manufacture changed (e.g., yarn manufacture), others did not. Despite the limited evidence for textile workshops, households remained important sites of production, which tells us something both about the nature of the craft and the socio-economic context in which it was practiced.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Landscape affordances – methodological approaches in computational archaeology”

Virtuelles Treffen

Dr. Michael Kempf Institut für Archäologie und Museologie, Masaryk Universität, Brno

Landscape affordances – methodological approaches in  computational archaeology

Functional landscape connectivity and spatial distribution of resource patches have long been considered important driving factors of human-environment interactions. In this context, human activity spheres, movement patterns, and situational decision-making represent the spatio-temporal expression of how individuals and groups perceive and transform their immediate surroundings in the process of landscape construction. This process is based on various environmental and cognitive variables such as group memory or individual demands and perceptions – a combination of different empirically, theoretically, and methodologically derived concepts, which are not often included jointly in archaeological and geographical research. A potential approach to overcome these limitations is the concept of landscape affordances, which entails dynamic and processual feedbacks of an individual or a group and the environment in the moment of mutual interaction and integrates human ingenuity in the production of landscapes, ecological processes, and sociocultural patterns. Deriving from psychology research of the late 1970’s by James J. Gibson, affordances describe the phenomena of propositions emanating from objects within a specific environment. Consequently, landscape affordances are non-static, actual, and potential confrontations between observer and particular resources or functions distributed among the accessible realm of the observer. In this lecture, the conceptual framework of landscape affordances is used to evaluate its potential in computational landscape archaeology and geography through the integration of different temporal scales and time-series analyses.

Making Sense of Scottish Neolithic Funerary Monuments and Practices

Megalithic chamber tombs – of widely varying shape and size – and non-megalithic funerary monuments loom large in the visible traces of Scotland’s Neolithic, but they formed just one element in a diverse range of practices concerned with dealing with, relating to, and commemorating the dead. This lecture explores this diversity and draws out the regional and chronological trends that can now be discerned, thanks to our growing body of radiocarbon dates. It also attempts to understand the origins, meanings and significance of these funerary monuments, and to identify the ‘drivers’ for the specific trajectories of change that we see.

Virtual meeting

Anna-Kaisa Salmi Universität Oulu

Domestication in Action – On the Archaeology of Human- Reindeer Interaction

The domestication of animals has traditionally been understood in terms of human control over the animal’s lives and the subsequent morphological, genetic and population structure change. However, this approach is not sufficient for understanding the domestication of the reindeer, or in fact, the early domestication processes of many other animal species. The commonly used domestication markers, such as morphological, genetic and population structure changes are not likely to reflect domestication in the reindeer as clearly as in many other species because of the limited and varying human influence on the reindeer’s life cycle in past reindeer pastoralism.

This presentation explores alternative ways to identify and understand reindeer domestication. Specifically, I will explore possibilities for tracing human-reindeer interactions such as draught reindeer use and reindeer feeding in the archaeological record as markers of domestication. Understanding domestication in the context on human-animal interaction is in line with current definition of animal domestication as a wide range of mutualistic relationship between human and animals. Furthermore, it allows a range of new archaeological techniques to be used as domestication markers. This lecture will present some the first archaeological results on past reindeer feeding and draught reindeer use, and their implications for human-reindeer relationships.

Virtual meeting

Mary Anne Tafuri Universität Rom

The Lesser Grains. Millet Consumption in Prehistoric Italy

The application of biomolecular techniques for the study of food practices in prehistoric Europe has revealed an interesting complexity. This is particularly true for the Bronze Age, where the use of ‘alternative’ grains, such as millets, has been assessed isotopically through the measurement of stable carbon (δ13C) and nitrogen (δ15N) isotope ratios in human and animal bone collagen. Earliest evidence of C4 plants consumption comes from northern Italy, with the Po plain acting as a hotspot for the development of the farming of new crops. Isotopic data from Early, Middle and Late Bronze Age sites from western Veneto and Friuli will be discussed in the light of a recent reassessment of our understanding of prehistoric food practices in Italy. Data obtained contribute to the understanding of mode and tempo of the spread of new crops in the Peninsula, which might further call for a reconsideration of food production and consumption among Bronze Age groups of southern and central Europe.

Virtual meeting

Marc Vander Linden Bournemouth Universität

Dispersal 2.0: Population History and the Spread of Early Farming in Europe

Despite extensive coverage in academic and popular media, the reports of the solution to the spread of farming have been greatly exaggerated. Namely, whilst recent aDNA research has indeed demonstrated the long-suggested link between population movement and the introduction of plant and animal domesticates across Europe, our understanding of how this process actually happened remains surprisingly limited. What factors were shaping the demographic expansion of this population? How much ecological and environmental parameters did influence this expansion and the known spatio-temporal in agricultural practices? To what extent local foraging communities were involved? This lecture will tackle some of these questions by focusing on the early Holocene sequence in the western Balkans and Adriatic basin, by discussing results gained from fieldwork, synthetic appraisal of museum collections and literature, and computational approaches undertaken as part of a recently completed ERC project.

Dynamics and Communication of Prehistoric Societies in the Central Alpine Region. Concepts on Mobility, Networks and Transformation

In Southern Central Europe, the Alps are a barrier and a communication area at the same time. While the mountains prevent mobility, passes, yokes and valleys create natural axes for exchange and communication. The Alpine Rhine Valley, which extends deep into the interior of the Alps, forms the most important access to the Central Alps from the north and leads directly into the southern Alpine region between Lago Maggiore and Lago di Como. This central axis was intensively used as a settlement area in prehistoric times and formed an Alpine transit route «par excellence». Recently, ceramic finds from the Neolithic period provide evidence of far-reaching communication processes between the inner and pre-alpine regions. From the Bronze Age onwards, clear influences from the north and south are perceptible in the central Alpine region, which speak to trade routes over the Alpine passes. During the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, the pre-alpine region is subject to massive changes. The aim of this study is a diachronic synthesis of different regions and epochs in order to postulate models of mobility, networks and transformation based on the central alpine area.

Virtual meeting

Karsten Lambers Universität Leiden

Uncovering the Archaeological Landscape of the Veluwe; Central Netherlands, through Remote Sensing, Data Science and Citizen Science

This talk will provide an update on ongoing archaeological research on the Veluwe, one of the few densely forested areas in the Netherlands. While many archaeological traces are well preserved under the forest cover, they are also well hidden. In spite of decades of archaeological fieldwork by Leiden University and others, our image of the rich archaeological heritage of the Veluwe is still sketchy.

Two recently launched, interlinked research projects are currently expanding our knowledge considerably. Both approach the Veluwe from a regional perspective. In a data science project, called WODAN (Workflow for Object Detection of Archaeology in the Netherlands) we are developing a multi-class detector of archaeological objects in LiDAR data, the core of which is a Faster R-CNN (region-based convolutional neural network). This project has more than doubled the amount of known prehistoric burial mounds in the region, and has also allowed substantial progress in the study of Celtic fields and charcoal kilns. In a citizen science project, called Heritage Quest, hundreds of citizen researchers have been mapping the same three object categories in LiDAR data, and some of them are currently helping us to verify them in the field, which again expands the number of known archaeological objects considerably.

Both projects inform each other through the mutual proposal and cross-validation of potential archaeological objects. They also generate data that allow us to assess and compare the performance of experts, volunteers, and neural networks in the detection and mapping of archaeological objects.

'Fragmentation, layers admixture, and refitting: a methodological attempt to bind the discrete and fuzzy aspects of archaeological knowledge'

The determination of spatial discrete units (e.g. stratigraphical layers, "structures") inside the mass of larger entities (e.g. the "site") is one of the crucial steps of any archaeological investigation. However, the boundaries of such entities are fuzzy. Consequently, stabilising their definition generally relies on an agreement among archaeologists, based on the cross-examination of multiple aspects (direct observation, artefacts distribution, soil chemistry, geoarcheology, etc.). The study of the relationships between fragments of objects which are parts of the same original object ("refitting") has a particular status to this regard: it enables one of the most (if not the most) certain reconstruction of past states of the world which are possible in archeology. Based on this assumption, the first step of this research requires a close  examination of the available methods for "refitting" analysis. This led to the development of a new way to model the relationships between fragments, which first application concerns the measurement of the admixture of two spatial units (e.g. layers). This approach was implemented into the "archeofrag" R package, which will be the basis for this presentation. While focusing on methodological aspects, their conceptual and theoretical implications will also be suggested.
