Daidalos at Work

Genre: History

The Bronze Age was a time of affluence and innovation for Crete, a unique "moment" in the early history of architecture that, in a bizarre way, echos the modern world of the 20th century AD. The mythical Daidalos, with his many attributes and tasks, stands for the protoype of "an architect at work," following orders and desires set by his clients and by society. The labyrinth, as a paradigm of order, stands for the primordial idea of architeccture and a metaphor of human existence. In this book, architecture is the protagonist and phenomoneology the basic tool of thought. It addresses archaeologists, architectural historians, and architects alike, in the hope that it will prove useful to those interested in understanding the Minoan world through its architecture as much as those interested in exploring architecture through the Minoan paradigm.

Mädchen - weibliche Individuen vor dem sozial, juristisch, biologisch etc. definierten Übergang zur 'Frau' - wurden in der altertumswissenschaftlichen Forschung bisher eher selten thematisiert. Diese Lücke schließt der vorliegende Band. Mit 26 Beiträgen in englischer und deutscher Sprache bietet er einen Überblick über den internationalen Forschungsstand: Von theoretischen Überlegungen zu den Nachweismöglichkeiten von 'Mädchen' in der prähistorischen Forschung über zusammenfassende Darstellungen des gegenwärtigen Wissensstandes zu Mädchen im Alten Orient, in Ägypten und in der Ägäischen Bronzezeit zu Spezialstudien über bestimmte Aspekte des Mädchen-Seins in Griechenland und Rom, bis hin zur christlichen Spätantike und den frühmittelalterlichen Gesellschaften. 'Mädchen im Altertum / Girls in Antiquity' ist die um einige Beiträge erweiterte Publikation einer internationalen Tagung gleichen Titels, die 2010 in Berlin von 'FemArc - Netzwerk archäologisch arbeitender Frauen' in Kooperation mit dem Deutschen Archäologischen Institut veranstaltet worden war.

Ancient Greece

Publisher: Britannica Educational Publishing
ISBN: 9781615302093
Release Date: 2010-04-01
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

From Archaic times to the reign of Alexander the Great, Greek unity was tenuous, yet Ancient Greece was a place where culture flourished and intellectual achievement knew no bounds. Ancient Greek ideas on philosophy, politics, science, and the arts anticipate many of our own, and in some ways, remain unparalleled today. This book recounts the events that were instrumental to the development of this storied civilization and the indelible legacies it has left behind. A detailed appendix supplements the narrative with in-depth discussion on the Pre-Greek societies that fueled the imagination and gave birth to an enduring body of Greek mythology.

Fr hkretische Siegel

Release Date: 1995-01
Genre: Social Science

An attempt to look afresh at `old' material such as the well-known seals of Crete. Sbonias' study looks first at the settlement picture of the island at the time when these seals were being produced. He then turns his attention to the classification of the seals and the immages on them, dividing them up according to shape and material. This is followed by grouping according to iconographic and stylistic elements. This done, the information is then interpreted so as to reveal niformation on social and economic aspects of the early Cretan seals: what developments are represtented by their use, their decoration and so on.
