View: 6014"Antiquity is often utilized as a reference to provide a historical dimension for contemporary phenomena. This also holds true for the prevailing scientific discourse on alternative or adequate remedies of dispute resolution. In this context, historical perspectives seem to be in vogue as narratives to legitimize one or another role model, whereas studies on practical examples from ancient legal orders tend not to be given serious consideration in the current debate. Just as in the case of contemporary legal research, ancient legal history also distinguishes litigation at court from other mechanisms of conflict resolution. Nevertheless, where do the boundaries of judicial and extra-judicial mechanisms of dispute resolution lie within the framework of ancient societies? Are they alternatives in a narrower sense? Is there evidence for concerning the reason there was no (or at least no exclusive) judicial decision? This volume offers a selection of studies of pertinent illustrative material pertaining to these questions. While the relevant sources stemming from the prehistorical period, the Ancient Near East, Hellenistic Egypt and Classical Roman law may vary greatly, this just serves to widen our perspective on ancient times. Heidi Peter-Röcher focuses on strategies of conflict resolution in prehistoric times corresponding to different forms of violence. Hans Neumann, Susanne Paulus, Lena Fijałkowska and Alessandro Hirata delve into case studies situated in the Ancient Near East from Sumerian to Neo-Babylonian times. Three other contributions examine Graeco-Roman Antiquity: Marc Depauw considers non-Greek, i.e., demotic, material from a Hellenistic kingdom, Anna Seelentag embraces the phenomenon of public clamour in the Roman Republic, and Christine Lehne-Gstreinthaler provides a fresh look at the classical arbitration from the perspective of ancient legal history."

Eine wichtige Voraussetzung fur das Verstandnis von historischen und kulturellen Prozessen bildet die Untersuchung ihrer naturlichen Umwelt, denn bereits mit dem fruhesten Auftreten des Menschen entsteht ein Beziehungsgefl echt, das eine stringente Trennung von Naturraum und Kulturraum obsolet werden lasst. Der Sammelband zeigt in Fallbeispielen die Moglichkeiten zur Analyse derartiger historischer Mensch-Umwelt-Gefl echte auf. Neben grundsatzlichen methodischen Erwagungen zur Siedlungsarchaologie wird die Rekonstruktion der Umwelt und ihrer Fauna und Flora ebenso behandelt wie dorfl iche Okonomien, Wasserversorgung und Wasserbau. Der Schwerpunkt liegt dabei auf Beispielen im ostlichen Mittelmeerbereich, fur die Problematik von Flussveranderungen wird aber auch der Rhein einbezogen. Neben der Geographie, der Palaobotanik und der Archaologie sind so auch die Alte Geschichte und die Altorientalistik in Beitragen vertreten und zeigen damit, auf welch vielfaltige Weise gemeinsame Fragestellungen zum Verhaltnis des Menschen zu seiner Umwelt bearbeitet werden konnen.

Excavations at Late Bronze Age Ugarit (in Syria) have provided a wealth of information about economic activities within the city itself and in the Eastern Mediterranean more generally. This volume explores how economic agents in and around Ugarit operated in different exchange networks and how elite actors could gain power by operating across more than one network. By applying a Network-based model to both the textual and the archaeological data from the site of Ugarit, economic activities at the site are reconstructed in this volume. The textual evidence is investigated in detail, with special attention paid to the alphabetic economic texts and associated vocabulary. The archaeological evidence is examined seperately and both types of data are then used in tandem to reconstruct ancient economic relationships at Ugarit. This volume is of interest not only to specialists in Ugarit and Ancient Syria but to any scholar interested in exploring new method for understanding ancient economic relationships.
