The Horse in the Ancient World

From Bucephalus to the Hippodrome

The domestication of the horse in the fourth millennium BC altered the course of mankind’s future. Formerly a source only of meat, horses now became the prime mode of fast transport as well as a versatile weapon of war. Carolyn Willekes traces the early history of the horse through a combination of equine iconography, literary representations, fieldwork and archaeological theory. She explores the ways in which horses were used in the ancient world, whether in regular cavalry formations, harnessed to chariots, as a means of reconnaissance, in swift and deadly skirmishing (such as by Scythian archers) or as the key mode of mobility. Establishing a regional typology of ancient horses – Mediterranean, Central Asian and Near Eastern – the author discerns within these categories several distinct sub-types. Explaining how the physical characteristics of each type influenced its use on the battlefield – through grand strategy, singular tactics and general deployment – she focuses on Egypt, Persia and the Hittites, as well as Greece and Rome. This is the most comprehensive treatment yet written of the horse in antiquity.

Tanja Pulfer zeigt mit Horse Balance Möglichkeiten auf, wie wir mit unserem Pferd eine harmonische, liebevolle Einheit bilden können. In diesem Zustand können eine effektivere, freudvolle Zusammenarbeit und eine spannende Kommunikation zwischen Pferd und Mensch entstehen. Sie zeigt auch auf, wie wir das Wohlbefinden und die Gesundheit von uns und unserem Pferd mit Hilfe von Klangschalen und EFT (Emotional Freedom Technics nach Gary Craig) beeinflussen können. Horse Balance nach Tanja Pulfer ist das Ergebnis eines langjährigen Lernprozesses. In diesem lernte sie, mit sich und ihrem Pferd auf neue Art umzugehen. Sie lernte, sich mit ihm über die Seele zu verbinden und so auf einer tieferen Ebene mit ihm in Kontakt zu treten, mit ihm zu kommunizieren. Von Dorina, ihrer Freibergerstute, lernte sie, Klangmassage mit Pferden durchzuführen. Verschiedene Lebenssituationen führten sie dazu, auch EFT mit Erfolg für Pferde, andere Tiere und für sich selbst anzuwenden. Ihre Erfahrungen gibt sie nun in Seminaren weiter. Dies ist das Begleitbuch zu ihrem Seminar - zum Nachschlagen für ehemalige Teilnehmer, zum Schnuppern für jene, die sich für das Thema interessieren.

The Horse, the Wheel, and Language

How Bronze-Age Riders from the Eurasian Steppes Shaped the Modern World

Author: David W. Anthony

Publisher: Princeton University Press

Category: Social Science

Roughly half the world's population speaks languages derived from a shared linguistic source known as Proto-Indo-European. But who were the early speakers of this ancient mother tongue, and how did they manage to spread it around the globe? Until now their identity has remained a tantalizing mystery to linguists, archaeologists, and even Nazis seeking the roots of the Aryan race. The Horse, the Wheel, and Language lifts the veil that has long shrouded these original Indo-European speakers, and reveals how their domestication of horses and use of the wheel spread language and transformed civilization. Linking prehistoric archaeological remains with the development of language, David Anthony identifies the prehistoric peoples of central Eurasia's steppe grasslands as the original speakers of Proto-Indo-European, and shows how their innovative use of the ox wagon, horseback riding, and the warrior's chariot turned the Eurasian steppes into a thriving transcontinental corridor of communication, commerce, and cultural exchange. He explains how they spread their traditions and gave rise to important advances in copper mining, warfare, and patron-client political institutions, thereby ushering in an era of vibrant social change. Anthony also describes his fascinating discovery of how the wear from bits on ancient horse teeth reveals the origins of horseback riding. The Horse, the Wheel, and Language solves a puzzle that has vexed scholars for two centuries--the source of the Indo-European languages and English--and recovers a magnificent and influential civilization from the past.
