Balkan prehistory : exclusion, incorporation and identity by Douglass W Bailey( )

17 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Douglass Baileys volume fills the huge gap that existed for a comprehensive synthesis, in English, of the archaeology of the Balkans between 6,500 and 2,000 BC; much research on the prehistory of Eastern Europe was inaccessible to a western audience before now, because of linguistic barriers
Prehistoric figurines : representation and corporeality in the Neolithic by Douglass Bailey( )

18 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 1,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the ways that people use representations of human bodies to make subtle political points and to understand their own identities and to negotiate their relationships with friends and enemies. The author moves the debate past the interpretations of figurines as Mother-Goddess and investigates individual prehistoric figurines in their original archaeological contexts and in terms of modern exploitations of the human form
Living well together? : settlement and materiality in the Neolithic of south-east and central Europe by Alasdair Whittle( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The lost world of old Europe : the Danube valley, 5000-3500 BC( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the prehistoric Copper Age, long before cities, writing, or the invention of the wheel, Old Europe was among the most culturally rich regions in the world. Its inhabitants lived in prosperous agricultural towns. The ubiquitous goddess figurines found in their houses and shrines have triggered intense debates about women's roles

Breaking the surface : an art/archaeology of prehistoric architecture by Douglass Whitfield Bailey( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Breaking the Surface will be a disruption to traditional archaeological approaches to the prehistoric past. Having performed fieldwork on the early Neolithic pit-houses of southeastern Europe for over 20 years, the author aims to confront a major development in human history--digging, or the creation of holes. The book begins with a detailed examination of the extant remains of Neolithic pit-houses, the roofed dugout structures that are the earliest evidence for settled habitation in Europe. Rather than seek confirmation for what has already been theorized about their use (e.g., housing, storage, refuse), the author turns to the more specific actions of the people who dug these holes in the surface, and, more critically, to the consequences that those prehistoric actions had on those people's understanding of their place(s) in their ground worlds: how digging into the surface altered their perspectives of themselves and others, and of their world and of other worlds beyond the material and visible. The book turns to how scholars in other disciplines, such as philosophy and linguistic anthropology, have been asking similar questions about holes and the consequences of breaking and cutting. The resulting book offers comprehensive discussions of the philosophy of holes and perforations (particularly the paradox of a hole - does it exist, is it beyond materiality?), the linguistic anthropology of cut- and break-words (what diversity exists in the ways that extant communities talk and think about perforations and perforating), and the perceptual psychology of concavities (the case that holes attract our visual attentions)"--
(Un)settling the neolithic( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"(Un)settling the Neolithic is a radical redirection in the study of the central and east European Neolithic (6500-3500 cal BC). Attacking the essentialisms of traditional approaches to the period, the volume pushes forward with new thinking about how best to understand human existence at this time in a critical region. Containing major statements by the key authorities on the topic, (un)settling the Neolithic challenges scholars, students, excavators and teachers to think again about the fundamental conceptions with which the Neolithic has been defined since the origins of its academic study."--BOOK JACKET

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unearthed : a comparative study of Jōmon dogū and neolithic figurines by Douglass W Bailey( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is one part of a transdisciplinary and interntional prject that is examining two of the world's greatest figurine traditions: the Japanese Jōmon culture (14,000-300 BC) and the Neolithic of southwestern Europe (6500-3500 BC). This volume and the related exhibit are mediations on the processes, assumptions, and interpretations that accompany our engagement with a figurine from prehistoric Europe or a dogū from Japan
The power of Dogu : ceramic figures from ancient Japan( Book )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born from the earliest dated tradition of pottery manufacture in the world, dogu abstract clay figurines with recognisably human features are a link back to the lost worlds of the remarkable Jomon period (c. 10,000500 BC). They have been excavated in large quantities from sites throughout the country. Many were deliberately broken before burial which has raised intriguing questions about their possible uses. This catalogue will illustrate 70 dogu, the most important of which have been designated as either National Treasures or Important Cultural Properties. In addition to the descriptions of the pieces themselves, the book will include chapters written by experts in the field exploring the wider East Asian setting and the significance of this context in understanding Japanese prehistory."--Publisher description

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Med mnogimi spremembami, ki so se pojavile v jugovzhodni Evropi po letu 6500 BC, je bila ena najpomembnejših, da so ljudje začeli postavljati stavbe in s tem graditi svoje socialno okolje. Glavni vrsti arhitekture sta bili: polzemljanke in stavbe, postavljene na nivoju tal. V članku raziščemo značaj obeh vrst stavb. Menimo, da kažeta pomembno razliko v ustroju in organiziranosti skupnosti. Primere navajmo iz treh najdišč: Divostin (faza I in II), Usoe in Ovcharovo-gorata
