The Oxford Handbook of Neolithic Europe (Paperback): Chris Fowler, Jan Harding, Daniela Hofmann The Oxford Handbook of Neolithic Europe (Paperback)
Chris Fowler, Jan Harding, Daniela Hofmann
R1,350 Discovery Miles 13 500 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Neolithic -a period in which the first sedentary agrarian communities were established across much of Europe-has been a key topic of archaeological research for over a century. However, the variety of evidence across Europe, the range of languages in which research is carried out, and the way research traditions in different countries have developed makes it very difficult for both students and specialists to gain an overview of continent-wide trends. The Oxford Handbook of Neolithic Europe provides the first comprehensive, geographically extensive, thematic overview of the European Neolithic -from Iberia to Russia and from Norway to Malta -offering both a general introduction and a clear exploration of key issues and current debates surrounding evidence and interpretation. Chapters written by leading experts in the field examine topics such as the movement of plants, animals, ideas, and people (including recent trends in the application of genetics and isotope analyses); cultural change (from the first appearance of farming to the first metal artefacts); domestic architecture; subsistence; material culture; monuments; and burial and other treatments of the dead. In doing so, the volume also considers the history of research and sets out agendas and themes for future work in the field.

The Neolithic of Europe comprises eighteen specially commissioned papers on prehistoric archaeology, written by leading international scholars. The coverage is broad, ranging geographically from south-east Europe to Britain and Ireland and chronologically from the Neolithic to the Iron Age, but with a decided focus on the former. Several papers discuss new scientific approaches to key questions in Neolithic research, while others offer interpretive accounts of aspects of the archaeological record. Thematically, the main foci are on Neolithisation; the archaeology of Neolithic daily life, settlements and subsistence; as well as monuments and aspects of worldview. A number of contributions highlight the recent impact of techniques such as isotopic analysis and statistically modelled radiocarbon dates on our understanding of mobility, diet, lifestyles, events and historical processes. The volume is presented to celebrate the enormous impact that Alasdair Whittle has had on the study of prehistory, especially the European and British Neolithic, and his rich career in archaeology.

The papers gathered in this volume explore the economic and social roles of exchange systems in past societies from a variety of different perspectives. Based on a broad range of individual case studies, the authors tackle problems surrounding the identification of (pre-monetary) currencies in the archaeological record. These concern the part played by weight measurement systems in their development, the changing role of objects as they shift between different spheres of exchange, e.g. from gifts to commodities, as well as wider issues regarding the role of exchange networks as agents of social and economic change. Among the specific questions the papers address is what happens when new objects of value are introduced into a system, or when existing objects go out of use, as well as how exchange systems react to events such as crises or the emergence of new polities and social constellations. One theme that unites most of the papers is the tension between what is introduced from the outside and changes that are driven by social transformations within a given group.

Creating Communities - New advances in Central European Neolithic Research (Paperback): Daniela Hofmann Creating Communities - New advances in Central European Neolithic Research (Paperback)

The aim of this book is to raise questions about the investigation of identity, community and change in prehistory, and to challenge the current state of debate in Central European Neolithic archaeology. Although the LBK is one of the best researched Neolithic cultures in Europe, here the material is used in order to further explore the interconnection between individuals, households, settlements and regions, explicitly addressing questions of Neolithic society and lived experience. By embracing a variety of approaches and voices, this volume draws out some of the cross-cutting concerns which unite LBK studies in their different regional research contexts and paves the way for further debate on the subject.

Living Well Together investigates the development of the Neolithic in southeast and central Europe from 6500-3500 cal BC with special reference to the manifestations of settling down. A collection of reports and comments on recent fieldwork in the region, Living Well Together? provides 14 tightly written and targeted papers presenting interpretive discussions from important excavations and reassessments of our understanding of the Neolithic. Each paper makes a significant contribution to existing knowledge about the period, and the book, like its companion (Un)settling the Neolithic (Oxbow 2005) will be a benchmark text for work in this region. The reports in Living Well Together? play out the critical questions posed in the earlier volume: how should one interpret settlement; what of the difference between tells and flat sites; what do we mean by permanent occupation; can we avoid the assumptions that underlie claims for year-round residence or seasonal occupation; why, in some regions and at some times, did people maintain residence for so many generations that monumental tell settlements grew to dominate the visual and social landscape; what would a viewshed analysis of tells reveal; what are the dynamics of households in Neolithic Greece; how should we see the emergence of pottery in terms of material culture; and what were the origins of the LBK, and how can we understand its development? The volume's authors have succeeded in attacking existing thought, in provoking new discussion and in creating new paths to understanding the nature of human existence in the Neolithic. Together they set a new agenda for studying the Neolithic across and beyond southeastern and central Europe.

Nachhaltige Lebensmittel, nachhaltige Textilien, nachhaltiger Konsum - immer mehr Unternehmen orientieren sich am Trend und den Grundsatzen der nachhaltigen Entwicklung. Damit bedienen sie nicht nur einen wachsenden Markt, sondern schonen gleichzeitig naturliche Ressourcen und senken so ihre Produktionskosten. Das Praxishandbuch zeigt Unternehmen, wie sie ihre Produktion und ihr Marketing langfristig auf nachhaltige Methoden und Techniken umstellen koennen. Dabei folgen die Autoren dem Green Marketing. Dieser Ansatz geht auf das steigende Umweltbewusstsein der Kunden ein und hilft so Unternehmen, die eigene Marktposition mithilfe nachhaltiger Produkte zu starken. Die Autoren richten sich damit an mittelstandische Unternehmen sowie Entscheider und Fuhrungskrafte in groesseren Unternehmen, die wissen moechten, wie sie mit umweltbewusster Produktentwicklung neue Markte erschliessen und ihre Wettbewerbsfahigkeit steigern koennen. Die insgesamt 21 Kapitel sind in vier grosse Themenbloecke zusammengefasst: "Grundlagen der Nachhaltigkeit", "Grundlagen der Produktentwicklung", "Phasen der nachhaltigen Produktentwicklung" und "Ausblick". Dabei geht es sowohl um grundsatzliche, als auch praktische Fragen: Welche Faktoren begunstigen die Entwicklung nachhaltiger Produkte? Was sind die betrieblichen und rechtlichen Rahmenbedingungen? Was sind die Phasen der nachhaltigen Produktentwicklung? Und wie koennen Unternehmen umweltfreundliche Produkte am besten vermarkten? Die Kapitel bauen inhaltlich aufeinander auf, sind aber in sich abgeschlossen und auch unabhangig voneinander gut verstandlich. Daher lasst sich das Buch gut als Leitfaden oder Nachschlagewerk benutzen. Daruber hinaus eignet sich der Band als Lehrbuch an Berufs- und Fachhochschulen.

This volume is the product of a Theoretical Archaeology Group (TAG) conference session (held at Lampeter, Wales, in December 2003) entitled Mentalites and Identities in Motion. The session centred on the role of past ways of thinking, feeling and acting in social transformation, and exploring past worldviews as (instead of being relegated to the 'fictional' or anecdotal) an integral part of every aspect of human life, not just explicit contexts of power struggles and domination, but also approachable from the material evidence. The contributions are widely spread across space and time, ranging from Northern Ireland to Sicily, from France to Bulgaria and covering almost every period from the Mesolithic to the Thirty Years' War. On top of this, they are also very different in methodology, in the ways they have interpreted the session title and approached their evidence.

The Neolithic period is noted primarily for the change from hunter-gatherer societies to agriculture, domestication and sedentism. This change has been studied in the past by archaeologists observing the movements of plants, animals and people. But has not been examined by looking at the domestic architecture of the time. Along with tracking the movement of sedentism, Neolithic houses are also able to show researchers the beginnings of cultural identity, group representation through the construction and decoration of these structures. Additionally as agriculture moved west and north in this era, the architecture and material culture shows this change and its significance. Chapters are arranged chronologically so that authors can address differences and similarities of their region to neighboring ones. To ensure continuity, authors have framed the chapters around the following considerations: construction materials and architectural characteristics; how houses facilitated or perpetua

This book studies the works of a remarkable figure, scarcely known outside expert circles: Jean Poyer from the Loire Valley, the only one of Fouquet's disciples to have understood the full extent of his brilliant predecessor's achievements. This book is the first coherent examination of Poyer's oeuvre, which comprised manuscript illuminations, paintings, drawings, as well as designs for stained glas works, and whose compositions also found their way into Parisian printed graphic art.
