Amino acids and proteins in fossil biominerals : an introduction for archaeologists and palaeontologists by Beatrice Demarchi
Amino Acids and Proteins in Fossil Biominerals is an authoritative guide to the patterns of survival and degradation of ancient biomolecules in the fossil record. The author brings together new research in biomineralization and ancient proteins to describe mechanisms of protein diagenesis. The book draws on the author's experiences as well as current information from three research fields: geochemistry, archaeology and Quaternary sciences. The author examines the history of the study of ancient proteins, from the dating of Quaternary biominerals to the present advances in shotgun proteomics, and discusses their applications across archaeology, geology and evolutionary biology. This important guide:?? Explores the main components of biominerals Describes the breakdown of proteins in fossils Reviews the applications of ancient protein studies Written for students and researchers of biomolecular archaeology and palaeontology, Amino Acids and Proteins in Fossil Biominerals provides a cross-disciplinary guide to the proteins responsible for the formation of biominerals and to the survival of biomolecules in the archaeological and palaeontological record.
Of all of Britain's great archaeological monuments the prehistoric and later hillforts have arguably had the most profound impact on the landscape, if only because there are so many; yet we know very little about them. Were they recognised as being something special by those who created them or is the 'hillfort' purely an archaeologist's 'construct'? How were they built, who lived in them and to what uses were they put? This book, which is richly illustrated with photography of sites throughout England and Wales, addresses these and many other questions. After discussing the difficult issue of definition and the great excavations on which our knowledge is based, Ian Brown investigates in turn the origins of hillforts, their architecture and the role they played in Iron Age society. He also discusses the latest theories about their location, social significance and chronology. The book provides a valuable synthesis of the rich vein of research carried out in England and Wales on hillforts over the last thirty years. The great variability of hillforts poses many problems, and this book should help guide both the specialist and non-specialist alike though the complex literature. Furthermore, it has an important conservation objective. Land use in the modern era has not been kind to these monuments, with a significant number either disfigured or lost. Public consciousness of their importance needs raising if their management is to be improved and their future assured.
En reise i norsk skipsbyggerhistorie. Marinarkeolog Arne Emil Christensen ser på båtbyggerkunsten fra de første primitive farkoster, laget av dyrehuder eller uthulede trestammer, via vikingetidens revolusjonerende konstruksjoner og frem til middelalder og hansatidens omfangsrike krigsskip og handelsfartøy. I dette spennet avleser forfatteren historien om menneskelig oppfinnsomhet og perfeksjon i de mange arkeologiske funnene, og viser til hvordan utviklingen utspilte seg andre steder i verden på samme tid. Boken er også viet alle dem som ivrer for å bevare kunnskapen om norsk båtbyggertradisjon. Omtalen er utarbeidet BS.
Et kunstmuseum i endring? : nye formidlingspraksiser i Norden by Line Engen og Boel Christensen-Scheel (red.)
Publikum inviteres til nye praktfulle museumsbygg, men hva skjer på innsiden? Hvordan skal kunsten formidles? Bør publikum kun lese tekster på veggen, eller har museet et ansvar for å fornye seg? Hvilke utfordringer møter vi når konseptuelle og tidsavgrensede kunstverk skal kommuniseres? Formidlingsfeltet er i radikal endring, og med denne boka har vi utfordret nordiske kunstmuseer til å undersøke sin egen praksis fra innsiden. Redaksjonen har valgt ut en rekke nyskapende praksiser, og plassert disse inn i en tematisk oversikt som skisserer museale spydspisser i Norden. Fra Nasjonalmuseets filosofiske samtaler til Børnehuset på Louisiana, kunstnerkontor på AARoS, dans på Munchmuseet og kunstnerstyrt laboratorium på Moderna Museet i Stockholm. Artikkelforfatterne er ansatt som forskere, formidlere og utstillingsprodusenter, og arbeider aktivt med formidling både som praksis og forskningsmetode. Boka passer for museumsansatte i Norden, studenter på museumsvitenskapelige- og kunsthistoriske fagretninger samt forskere på feltet.
Gathering time : dating the early Neolithic enclosures of Southern Britain and Ireland : volume 1 & 2 by Alex Bayliss; Frances Healy; Alasdair Whittle
Gathering Time presents the results of a major dating programme that re-writes the early Neolithic of Britain by more accurately dating enclosures, a phenomenon that first appeared in the early Neolithic: places of construction, labour, assembly, ritual and deposition. The project has combined hundreds of new radiocarbon dates with hundreds of existing dates, using a Bayesian statistical framework. Such formal chronological modelling is essential if significantly more precise and robust date estimates are to be achieved than those currently available from informal inspection of calibrated radiocarbon dates. The resulting dating project included over 35 enclosures - the largest study so far attempted in a Bayesian framework. This establishes a new chronology for causewayed and related enclosures in southern Britain, which appeared in the final decades of the 38th century cal BC, increased in number dramatically in the 37th century cal BC, and began no longer to be built by the end of the 36th century cal BC.
This handbook, published in association with Sustainability in Conservation focuses on organic solvents, their impact on human health and the environment and how they might potentially affect the materials of the artefacts which are worked on by conservators. The aim is to assist in the eradication of the widespread use of the most harmful solvents by providing information to enable their identification and the most straightforward ways of determining alternatives that may be used in their place.
This book explores the Irish Mesolithic - the period after the end of the last Ice Age when Ireland was home to hunter-gatherer communities, mostly from about 10,000-6,000 years ago. At this time, Ireland was an island world, with striking similarities and differences to its European neighbors - not least in terms of the terrestrial ecology created by its island status. To understand the communities of hunter-gatherers who lived there, it is essential that we consider the connections established between people and the other beings and materials with which they shared the world and through which they grew into it. Understanding the Mesolithic means paying attention to the animals, plants, spirits and things with which hunting and gathering groups formed kinship relationships and in collaboration with which they experienced life.The book closes with a reflection on hunting and gathering in Ireland today. The overriding aim of the book is to provide a point of entry into the lives of the Irish Mesolithic, to show the different ways in which people have lived on this island, and to show how we might narrate those lives.

Riches beyond the horizon : long-distance trade in Early Medieval landscapes (ca. 6th-12th centuries) by H. Nol (Editor)
This book offers new and innovative perspectives on long-distance trade between Europe, the Mediterranean area, the Middle East, Africa, India and China during the Early Medieval period. The archaeological data and historical insights presented in this volume are without exception of great interest, often exciting, and more than once astonishing. The goods which travelled between the continents in the timespan under discussion (ca. 6th to 12th centuries) include pottery in all shapes and forms, textiles, coins, metal, lava millstones, glass, marble columns, rock-crystal beads, and also plants used for incense. The scope of the contributions includes the wide-ranging economic contacts of a Viking community, the changing patterns of long-distance trade in the Byzantine Empire, the spread of Chinese pottery to Africa, the Near East and Europe, the information on maritime routes provided by shipwrecks in the Java Sea, the reconstruction of an incense trade network, and the production and distribution of textiles as well as stone objects in the Middle East and beyond. The varied approaches in this volume underline that the movement of objects in Early Medieval times over vast distances not only reflect mechanisms of exchange, but also imply social networks and the transfer of ideas. Thus, Riches Beyond the Horizon sheds compelling light on a world which was much more complex and much more interconnected than has often been assumed.
St. Svithun-namnet er mykje brukt i Stavanger. Domkyrkja er frå gammal tid også kalla Svithunskatedralen. I byen finst også St. Svithun katolske kyrkjelyd med si kyrkje. To skular og ein barnehage ber namnet St. Svithun. Det same gjer ei gate, ein plass, eit hotell, og fleire verksemder. Eldre folk hugsar nok også Svithun-sykkelen og Svithun-barnevogna. St. Svithun er Stavanger sin vernehelgen. Historia og legendene om denne helgenen var nok meir kjent i tidlegare tider. I denne vesle boka kan vaksne og barn saman bli nærmare kjent med helgenen og korleis han vart feira i Stavanger i første delen av 1500-talet.
