📒Classical Archaeology ✍ Susan E. Alcock
✏Classical Archaeology Book Summary : Classical archaeology has undergone profound change in recent years; new theoretical approaches and the development of cutting-edge methodologies have prompted classical archaeologists to pose more challenging questions of the extraordinarily rich data we possess from the ancient Mediterranean world. "Classical Archaeology" is designed to encourage further critical thinking about the role of ancient material culture in Greek and Roman societies, and the role of modern preoccupations in shaping the study of ancient material. Authored by leading archaeologists and historians of the classical world, the fully-update second edition of "Classical Archaeology" contains thematic pairs of essays (each pair comprised of one essay from the Greek world and one from the Roman) that explore ideas such as the ancient environment, rural landscape, urban spaces, cults and rituals, identity and its material expression, and Mediterranean links with a wider world. Maps, chronologies, diagrams, photographs, and short editorial introductions to each chapter connect the paired essays and provide the reader with vital background and context. These features, as well as the editors' comprehensive introduction and their final reflective chapter, make "Classical Archaeology" indispensable to all students of classical Greece and Rome. New to second edition: Updated and revised throughout, with additional illustrations Includes brand new essays on Greek and Roman art
📒Testing The Canon Of Ancient Near Eastern Art And Archaeology ✍ Amy Rebecca Gansell
✏Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology Book Summary : Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology invites readers to reconsider the contents and agendas of the art historical and world-culture canons by looking at one of their most historically enduring components: the art and archaeology of the ancient Near East. Ann Shafer, Amy Rebecca Gansell, and other top researchers in the field examine and critique the formation and historical transformation of the ancient Near Eastern canon of art, architecture, and material culture. Contributors flesh out the current boundaries of regional and typological sub-canons, analyze the technologies of canon production (such as museum practices and classroom pedagogies), and voice first-hand heritage perspectives. Each chapter, thereby, critically engages with the historiography behind our approach to the Near East and proposes alternative constructs. Collectively, the essays confront and critique the ancient Near Eastern canon's present configuration and re-imagine its future role in the canon of world art as a whole. This expansive collection of essays covers the Near East's many regions, eras, and types of visual and archaeological materials, offering specific and actionable proposals for its study. Testing the Canon of Ancient Near Eastern Art and Archaeology stands as a vital benchmark and offers a collective path forward for the study and appreciation of Near Eastern cultural heritage. This book acts as a model for similar inquiries across global art historical and archaeological fields and disciplines.
