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

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 300 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
From ancient to modern : archaeology and aesthetics by New York University( Book )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As archaeologists unearth the past, they seek meaning or purpose for the objects they uncover by looking at the objects themselves and their archaeological context. Art historians, on the other hand, primarily focus on aesthetics, asking why a particular object stimulates our senses, and what that tells us about ourselves. From Ancient to Modern offers a lens for understanding ancient objects through the perspectives and processes of both archaeology and aesthetics, and, in so doing, illuminates the multiple layers of meaning that a single object can take on--sometimes simultaneously--over the course of its existence. This beautifully illustrated volume is the accompanying catalog for the exhibition at New York University's Institute for the Study of the Ancient World and focuses on fifty objects from three iconic sites in the ancient Near East: Ur, Diyala, and Kish. The excavation, unique characteristics, and transformative journey of each object--from archaeological artifact to aesthetic item--are examined. Select contemporary artworks are also considered in the investigation of how ancient objects acquire meaning in the present day."--Publisher's website

Wine, worship, and sacrifice : the golden graves of ancient Vani by D. D Kacharava( Book )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and Italian and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Colchis, which was located on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, is best known from Greek mythology as the land where Jason and the Argonauts went in search of the Golden Fleece and Jason fell in love with Medea, who helped the hero complete his legendary feat. Archaeological finds prove that Colchis was indeed rich in gold. This illustrated catalogue explores what defined Colchian identity beyond its wealth by providing an overview of life at Vani, an important administrative and religious center in Colchis. It presents findings from five of Vani's richest graves, which include an impressive array of gold jewelry as well as imports from its western and eastern neighbors. These graves also give evidence of human sacrifice and of the important role that wine, drinking, and libation played in Colchian life. It provides a historical and archaeological overview of the city and explores such topics such as the rich tradition of Colchian gold working and the Greek view of Colchis through the myth of Medea

Restoring the Minoans : Elizabeth Price and Sir Arthur Evans by Jennifer Y Chi( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do archaeologists and artists reimagine what life was like during the Greek Bronze Age? How do contemporary conditions influence the way we understand the ancient past? This innovative book considers two imaginative restorations of the ancient world that test the boundaries of interpretation and invention by bringing together the discovery of Minoan culture by the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans (1851-1941) and the work of the Turner Prize-winning video artist Elizabeth Price (b. 1966). Featured essays examine Evans's interpretation and restoration of the Knossos palace and present fresh photography of Minoan artifacts and archival photographs of the dig alongside beautiful, previously unpublished watercolors and drawings by the archaeological illustrators and restorers who worked on the site: Emile Gillieron pere (1850-1924), Emile Gillieron fils (1885-1939), Piet de Jong (1887-1967), and others. 00Exhibition: Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, United Kingdom (05.10.2017 - 07.01.2018)

Studies in the programmatic statuary of Roman Asia Minor by Jennifer Chi( )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation collects and presents the best preserved and published public statuary programs set within columnar facades from Roman Ephesos, Perge, and Side. Of critical importance is the fact that each of the sculptural displays analyzed within this study has a documented architectural context. This study demonstrates that a large part of a program's effect and meaning was gained from its context, from the relationship of the statues to one another and to the architectural setting in which they were erected. Where the evidence permits, reconstructions of the original design and installation of these programs are provided. The aim of this dissertation, however, is not to propose detailed archaeological reconstructions, but to analyze the broad cultural implications projected by these carefully conceived monuments
