Arnulf Hausleiter legt mit seiner Studie zur neuassyrischen Keramik erstmalig eine vergleichende Bearbeitung des eisenzeitlichen Keramikbefundes in Zentralassyrien wahrend des 10. bis 7. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. vor. Ausgehend von der Auswertung der stratigrafischen Ergebnisse aus urbanen Zentren und kleinen Ansiedlungen im Untersuchungsgebiet wurden keramikfuhrende Kontexte datiert und die fur bestimmte Zeitabschnitte charakteristischen Formtypen nach Moglichkeit identifiziert. Aus der assyrischen Hauptstadt Assur wurde in Ermangelung umfanglicher stratifizierter Kontexte aus Siedlungsgrabungen zumeist unpublizierte Keramik aus etwa 200 Grabern herangezogen. Damit steht der Fundort Assur im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchung. Der Befund der Grabkeramik in Assur zeigt ein ausgewahltes Repertoire an funktionsabhangigen Formen, das dem restlichen Formbestand Assyriens entspricht. Zusatzlich war es jedoch moglich, anhand einiger Grabkontexte aus Assur Formen als fruhneuassyrisch zu identifizieren - ein Zeitraum, aus dem bisher aus historischen, siedlungs- und nicht zuletzt grabungsgeschichtlichen Grunden noch keine Funde vorliegen.Hausleiters Untersuchung steht in Zusammenhang mit weiteren in Vorbereitung befindlichen archaologischen Arbeiten aus dem Assur-Projekt, die sich der Dokumentation der zahlreichen Graber und deren Beigaben widmen.

Plain Pottery Traditions of the Eastern Mediterranean and Near East

Production, Use, and Social Significance

The evolution and proliferation of plain and predominantly wheel-made pottery presents a characteristic feature of the societies of the Near East and Eastern Mediterranean since the fourth millennium B.C. This plain pottery has received little detailed archaeological attention in comparison to aesthetically more pleasing and chronologically sensitive decorated traditions. Yet, their simplicity and standardization suggest they are products of craft specialists, the result of high-volume production, and therefore important in understanding the social systems in early complex societies. This volume-reevaluates the role and significance of plain pottery traditions from both historically specific perspectives and from a comparative point of view;-examines the uses and functions of this pottery in relation to social negotiation and group identity formation;-helps scholars understand cross-regional similarities in development and use.

From the four sections of the Congress, [Vol. I: 1) The Reconstruction of Environment. Natural Resources and Human Interrelation through Time, 2) Visual Communication ISBN 978-3-447-05703-5], Vol. II: 3) Social and Cultural Transformation: The Archaeology of Transitional Periods and Dark Ages, 4) Archaeological Field Reports (Excavations, Surveys, Conservation) Together these volumes unite 77 contributions on about 1100 pages. They are arranged according to the sections. The rst three will be introduced by the key lectures which were given by Tony Wilkinson, Winfried Orthmann, and Roger Matthews. The resumes of these sections were provided by Wendy Matthews, Dominik Bonatz, and Diederik J.W. Meijer. The contributions cover many aspects of the main themes through time, from the Neolithic to the Hellenistic / Roman period, and offer interdisciplinary approaches to complex archaeological problems.

The Smithsonian Institution Excavation at Tell Jemmeh, Israel,1970-1990

This monograph describes the results of the archaeological excavation at the site of Tell Jemmeh, Israel, undertaken by the Smithsonian Institution and directed by Gus W. Van Beek during the years 1970–1990. All the artifacts from the excavations were shipped from Israel to Washington, D.C., and have been restored, studied, and analyzed in the National Museum of Natural History for the past four decades. The site is a strategic and large mound located near Gaza and the Mediterranean coast. It was inhabited continuously for at least 1,400 years during the Middle and Late Bronze Age, the Iron Age, and the Persian period. The highlights of this excavation are the findings of a large and affluent courtyard house from the Late Bronze Age, a sophisticated well-preserved pottery kiln from the early Iron Age, a complex of Assyrian-related administrative buildings during the late Iron Age, and a complete granary of the Persian period. This is a detailed and final report on all of the excavation results, including the architectural remains, stratigraphy, pottery, and other finds. In addition, several more detailed and focused studies of certain aspects of the site’s material include (among others) chapters on imported, decorated, Philistine, Assyrian-style and Greek pottery and chapters on figurines, sealings, jewelry, amulets, scarabs, cylinder seals, flint, coins, ostraca, and fauna. The volume is richly illustrated with nearly 1,000 figures showing field photographs, plans, sections, and drawings and photographs of artifacts. The significance of the results is summarized and discussed in the final chapter. -- Publisher.

This book publishes 34 papers by international and Iraqi experts given at a conference on Nimrud at The British Museum in 2002. Excavations at the important Assyrian capital city of Nimrud have continued intermittently since 1845, culminating with the discovery in 1989-90 of the tombs of the Assyrian queens with astonishing quantities of gold jewellery. All aspects of the excavations and the various finds and inscribed material from Nimrud are considered in this volume, with particular attention being paid to the tombs of the queens and their contents. The evidence of inscriptions and the results of paleopathological investigation are brought together to identify the bodies in the tombs. There is much previously unpublished information about the tombs, and the jewellery is fully illustrated in eight colour plates. Finally, the significance of Nimrud as one of the greatest sites in the Ancient Near East is fully assessed.

Israel und Ägypten in der Königszeit

die kulturellen Kontakte von Salomo bis zum Fall Jerusalems

The relationship between Egypt and Israel was an involved one, particularly during the expansion of the Assyrian empire. This account begins during the 10th century BC, with David and the 21st Dynasty, and concludes with the 26th Dynasty and the fall of Babylon in 539 BC. Using archaeological and biblical sources, Schipper demonstrates the self-interest that motivated relations, as Israel tried to maintain independence and Egypt strove to use Israel as a buffer against the Assyrians. A side effect of this was an exchange of culture, politics and trade which was often mutually beneficial. The book also discusses individual contacts between the two countries, which survived when more official contacts failed, and illustrates examples of artwork that reflect the exchange of ideas.
