Kristina Pfeiffer, Christoph Forster, Mechthild Ladurner, Sebastiano Lora, Emmanuele Petiti & Silvio Reichmuth
In cooperation with the Fujairah Tourism Antiquities Authority, research and rescue activities were continued at two Bronze and Iron Age sites in Dibba. In the area of Dibba Murba there are more than five collective tombs with rich find assemblages. This site, which has heavily been threatened by looting and gravel mining, was further excavated and consolidated in preparation for further measures. In the context of the superordinate question of changes in the lifestyle and...

Athen, Griechenland. Werkstätten am Südrand der Kerameikosstraße: Töpferwerkstätten und eine Ölmühle des 5. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. Die Arbeiten des Jahres 2020

Jutta Stroszeck & Franziska Lehmann
Due to the known restrictions for 2020, the Kerameikos team this year, during a short campaign, cleaned and documented workshop structures on the south western side of the Kerameikos street. The area had already been excavated and published in the early 1940s by Kurt Gebauer. The remnants of a large water basin were cleared and documented. It probably belonged to a potter’s workshop that existed there after the 1st century BC during the Roman period....

Lysipps Statuen des Herakles

Sascha Kansteiner
In dem hier präsentierten Beitrag geht es um die Beurteilung von themengleichen statuarischen Typen, die sich auch formal sehr ähnlich sehen. Es wird gezeigt, dass ein bislang nicht als eigenständig erkannter statuarischer Typus des ausruhenden Herakles, der Herakles Typus Antalya-Borghese, nicht als römische Version des kolossalen Herakles Typus Farnese, sondern als dessen Vorläufer zu bestimmen ist. Auf dieser Grundlage kann erstmals plausibel gemacht werden, dass ein griechischer Bronzegießer, sehr wahrscheinlich Lysipp, ein bestimmtes Thema zunächst...

Choice beef for the worshippers – the cattle record from the sanctuary of Jupiter Heliopolitanus at Carnuntum (Austria)

Günther Karl Kunst, Erika Gál & Verena Gassner
Presented here are three large animal bone assemblages recovered from three pits from the area of the sanctuary of Jupiter Heliopolitanus at Carnuntum. Two of them (G7 and G11) are from inside the precinct and are possibly linked to a reconstruction phase of the sanctuary at around the end of the 2nd /beginning of the 3rd century AD. They are believed to represent leftovers from communal meals of large groups of people. A third large...

In the belly of the earth: bones and the closing of sacred space in central Italy

Angela Trentacoste
Romans and Etruscan shared many cultural practices, including religious traditions. One such practice was the use of bone-rich deposits to deliberately close significant subterranean spaces and structures. The faunal material in these fills can often be separated from common domestic debris on the basis of associated materials and by patterns in the treatment of animals and choice of species. This paper presents new data on two urban deposits from pre-Roman central Italy: bone-rich fills from...

Animals in ritual and domestic context

Simone Häberle, Sabine Deschler-Erb, Heide Hüster Plogmann, Barbara Stopp, Sarah Lo Russo, Pirmin Koch & Regula Ackermann
In this study, archaeozoological remains (hand-retrieved and retrieved from soil samples) from residential areas and from two different sanctuaries from the vicus Kempraten have been analysed and compared. The archaeozoological assemblage consists of 15 886 animal remains identified to animal group and/or species and were recovered from a number of different features which partially overlap chronologically. We discuss commonalities and discrepancies as well as possible reasons behind the selection of certain animal species for domestic...

Oglachty, Russland. Die Menschen von Oglachty in Südsibirien: Welchen Platz hatten sie in der Geschichte Eurasiens im frühen ersten Jahrtausend n. Chr.? Die Arbeiten des Jahres 2019 (Projekte »Silk Road Fashion« und »BAYCHRON«)

Mayke Wagner, Sveltana V. Pankova, Tengwen Long, Christian Leipe & Pavel E. Tarasov
The people of Oglachty in South Siberia: What place did they have in the history of Eurasia in the early first millennium AD? When a shepherd fell into an old grave pit on the banks of the Yenisei River in 1902 and Alexander Adrianov uncovered another sixteen graves in the following year, research began in Oglachty that still offers as many challenges as it did a hundred years ago. This is due to the unusual...

Ostasien. Hirse – Wann das erste Getreide im nördlichen Ostasien domestiziert und verbreitet wurde. Die Arbeiten des Jahres 2019 (Projekte „BAYCHRON“ und „Bridging Eurasia“)

Mayke Wagner, Christian Leipe, Tengwen Long, Elena A. Sergusheva & Pavel E. Tarasov
Although broomcorn and foxtail millet are among the earliest staple crop domesticates, their spread and impacts on demography remain controversial, mainly because of the use of indirect evidence. Bayesian modelling applied to a dataset of new radiocarbon dates derived from domesticated millet grains suggests that after their initial cultivation in the crescent around the Bohai Sea ca. 5800 cal yr BC (median date), the crops spread discontinuously across eastern Asia. In northern China, millet-based agriculture...

Gadara, Jordanien. Der ‚Gadara/Umm Qays Hinterland Survey‘. Die Arbeiten im Herbst 2019

Dörte Rokitta-Krumnow
Since 2010, the German Archaeological Institute, Orient Department, Damascus Branch, conducts a hinterland survey around the ancient city of Gadara in north-western Jordan. The steep and sloping terrain with its mostly deflated surfaces is on the one hand difficult to survey and on the other hand only rarely allows for finding in situ findspots. Actual sites or findspots almost exclusively consist of ancient quarries, water channels and rock shelters which are still in use. Nevertheless,...

Additionally, a corner of a bastion or tower protruding from the fortification...

Göbekli Tepe, Turkey. A brief summary of research at a new World Heritage Site (2015–2019)

Lee Clare
Göbekli Tepe (~9.500–8.000 calBC) is a prehistoric site in Southeast Turkey that dates back to an early stage in the transition from hunter-gathering to farming economies in the Near East. Research undertaken in the period 2015–2019 has included the excavation of deep-soundings and the re-evaluation of some two decades of excavation records. This work is leading to a revision of former interpretations of the prehistoric site which still fuel the popular media image of Göbekli...
