From Genesis to Prehistory

We are now familiar with the Three Age System, the archaeological partitioning of the past into Stone Age, Bronze Age, and Iron Age. This division, which amounted at the time to a major scientific revolution, was conceived in Denmark in the 1830s. Peter Rowley-Conwy investigates the reasons why the Three Age system was adopted without demur in Scandinavian archaeological circles, yet was the subject of a bitter and long-drawn-out contest in Britain and Ireland, up to the 1870s.

This collection of papers-first delivered at the British Archaeological Association's (BAA) annual conference in 2002-celebrates medieval Rochester, including both the cathedral and castle, an outstanding pair of surviving monuments to the power of contemporary church and state. The contributions in this collection demonstrate the great interest of these understudied buildings, their furnishings, and historical and archaeological contexts, from the rich documentary evidence for the Anglo-Saxon town to the substantial surviving fabric of the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries. Shrines, monuments, woodwork, and seals are all fully covered, as well as the medieval monks themselves.

Liebesgeschichten aus dem Decameron

Author: Giovanni Boccaccio

Das Decameron des Giovanni Boccaccio ist eines der berühmtesten Bücher der europäischen Literatur. Viele der Novellen darin handeln von Liebe, aber Boccaccio hatte seinen eigenen Begriff davon. Anschaulich und witzig, wie sie sind, lassen sich die Novellen auch allein zur Unterhaltung lesen. Doch wer sie liest, dem werfen sich oft Fragen auf. Wie hat Boccaccio über Liebe, über Frauen und Männer gedacht? Was bedeutet insbesondere die seltsame Schlussnovelle? Sie handelt von Griselda, die sich von ihrem Mann auf die merkwürdigste Weise alles gefallen lässt. Von dieser Schlusserzählung her erscheint das ganze Decameron in einem neuen Licht.
