Biweekly Colloquium: “Nuna Nalluyuituq (The Land Remembers): Combining ethnographic inquiry and remote sensing to study traditional Yup’ik subsistence in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta”

Nov 08, 2021 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Hybrid Meeting (Leibnizstraße 1, R. 204/Online)

Prof. Dr. Sean Gleason  •  Hampden-Sydney College, Virginia

Nuna Nalluyuituq (The Land Remembers): Combining ethnographic inquiry and remote sensing to study traditional Yup’ik subsistence in the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta

This lecture outlines a collaborative, multidisciplinary approach to the study of Yup’ik subsistence in Southwest Alaska's Yukon-Kuskokwim (Y-K) Delta. Because distinctive vegetation patterns appear on ancestral cultural sites during the summer months, the analysis of multispectral imagery in combination with local Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) is useful for classifying, documenting, and studying the cyclical, year-long practice of Yup’ik subsistence known collectively as Yuuyaraq (trans. “The way we genuinely live”).  In sum, this lecture highlights the role of Yuuyaraq in past Yup’ik societies before considering how these practices have changed and what ethnographic inquiry and remote sensing can tell us today about these changes.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Persistence, Land Use and Sustainability: Exploring Long-term Trends in Urban Duration in the Fertile Crescent”

Prof. Dr. Dan Lawrence  •  Department of Archaeology, Durham University

Persistence, Land Use and Sustainability: Exploring Long-term Trends in Urban Duration in the Fertile Crescent

The Fertile Crescent, encompassing present-day Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Jordan and southeast Turkey, saw the emergence of the world’s first indigenous urban communities ca. 6,000 years ago, with cities a feature of the region ever since. These developed in diverse environmental settings, including the dry-farming plains of Northern Mesopotamia, the irrigated alluvium of Southern Mesopotamia and the more variegated landscapes of the Levant. The emergence of cities also coincides with a decoupling of settlement and climate trends, suggesting urbanism may have enhanced the adaptive capacity of societies to withstand changing climatic conditions. Urban forms followed a variety of different trajectories, with a much more sporadic and episodic history in the dry farming plains of the North and West of the study region compared to the stable build up in the irrigated South. In this paper we use a dataset of several thousand urban sites spanning the entire region and dating from the earliest urban forms to later territorial empires, to examine trends in urban sustainability through time. We use duration of occupation as a proxy for sustainability and compare urban trajectories at a variety of scales. Such an approach allows us to examine the relationships between city size, environmental conditions, infrastructural investment and urban sustainability. Our results show that the millennial timescales available through archaeology can allow us to identify the sorts of political, social, and ecological conditions required for urban sites to persist through time.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Feeding Anglo-Saxon England: The Bioarchaeology of an ‘Agricultural Revolution’ ”

Dec 06, 2021 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Virtual Meeting

Prof. Dr. Helena Hamerow  •  School of Archaeology, University of Oxford

Feeding Anglo-Saxon England: The Bioarchaeology of an ‘Agricultural Revolution’

The early medieval ‘agricultural revolution’ saw the advent of extensive forms of cereal farming that supported the exceptionally rapid growth of towns, markets and populations. The spread of open-field farming in particular is regarded as one of the transformative changes of the Middle Ages, one that has left a clear mark on the landscape today.  Historians and archaeologists studying these developments in England have had to rely on a few pre-Conquest texts, post-medieval maps and scatters of potsherds associated with manuring when investigating the ‘cerealisation’ of the early medieval countryside. The project ‘Feeding Anglo-Saxon England’ (FeedSax) addresses an ongoing debate regarding the origins and spread of new forms of cereal farming in England between c AD 700-1300 from the perspective of bioarchaeology (plant macrofossils, animal bones, and pollen). This talk presents an overview of some of FeedSax’s results, which constitute direct evidence for the conditions in which medieval crops were grown.

Biweekly Colloquium: “Conjunctions and Disjunctions in Interpretations of European Iron Age Socio-temporal Meshworks”

Jan 17, 2022 from 04:15 PM to 05:45 PM

Format to be confirmed

Prof. Dr. Bettina Arnold  •  Department of Anthropology, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Conjunctions and Disjunctions in Interpretations of European Iron Age Socio-temporal Meshworks

The archaeological record presents us with a conflated material record of interactions that are the product of horizontal meshworks at several geographic scales simultaneously. In addition to temporalities that reflect potentially different meshworks depending on the archaeological context in question (settlement vs. mortuary deposits, for example), these interactions were engaged in by actors belonging to different social categories based on age, gender, role and status. While some individuals may have moved vertically between these layers of relational systems most did not and yet we analyze the material traces of the interactions that occurred in Iron Age contexts as though they occurred within a single relational plane. Based on the extensive data sets and new methodologies now available to us it has become clear that interaction and mobility patterns were differentiated along several different axes geographically, temporally and socially. We must find ways of distinguishing between these conjunctive and disjunctive planes to develop a more complete picture of the various modes of early Iron Age communication and interaction. It should be possible to develop a more nuanced approach to this interpretive challenge with specific reference to the still emerging and by now quite extensive mortuary evidence from the West Hallstatt area, which will serve as the case study for this presentation.
