The Early Prehistory of Fiji

 

ANU Press, 2009.

ISBNs 9781921666070

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): I enjoyed reading this volume. It is rare to see such a comprehensive report on hard data published these days, especially one so insightfully contextualised by the editors’ introductory and concluding chapters. These scholars and the others involved in the work really know their stuff, and it shows. The editors connect the preoccupations of Pacific archaeologists with those of their colleagues working in other island regions and on “big questions” of colonisation, migration, interaction and patterns and processes of cultural change in hitherto-uninhabited environments. These sorts of outward-looking, big-picture contextual studies are invaluable, but all too often are missing from locally- and regionally-oriented writing, very much to its detriment. In sum, the work strongly advances our understanding of the early prehistory of Fiji through its well-integrated combination of original research and the reinterpretation of existing knowledge in the context of wider theoretical and historical concerns. In doing so The Early Prehistory of Fiji makes a truly substantial contribution to Pacific and archaeological scholarship.

Taking the High Ground

The archaeology of Rapa, a fortified island in remote East Polynesia Vol. 37

 

ANU E Press, 2012.

Título de la serie/colección: Terra Australis.

ISBNs 9781922144256 9781922144249

Colección: JSTOR

Resumen (en inglés): This volume brings the remote and little known island of Rapa firmly to the forefront of Polynesian archaeology. Thirteen authors contribute 14 chapters, covering not only the basic archaeology of coastal sites, rock shelters, and fortifications, but faunal remains, agricultural development, and marine exploitation. The results, presented within a chronology framed by Bayesian analysis, are set against a background of ethnohistory and ethnology. Highly unusual in tropical Polynesian archaeology are descriptions of artefacts of perishable material. Taking the High Ground provides important insights into how a group of Polynesian settlers adapted to an isolated and in some ways restrictive environment.

Tell Barri/Kahat

la campagna del 2000

 

Firenze University Press, 2003.

ISBNs 8884530926 8884530970

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): In the plains of north-eastern Syria, not far from the course of the Tigris, is the site of Tell Barri, identified with the city of Kahat, a centre famous in the course of the second millennium for the presence of the temple of the god of the storm and for the palace of Tukulti-Ninurta II, an Assyrian sovereign of the ninth century BC. The archaeological sequence which has been brought to light stretches from the start of the third millennium up to the fourteenth century AD. From the Sumerian, Accadian, Paleo-Babylonian and Assyrian evidence through to the Achemenidian, Hellenistic, Parthian, Sassanid-Byzantine and finally mediaeval occupation. The book illustrates the results of the seventeenth excavation campaign, carried out by the group from the University of Florence and from the “Federico II” University of Naples.

ISBNs 8884531403 888453139X

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): In the undulating plains of north-eastern Syria is the site of Tell Barri, identified with the city of Kahat. The archaeological sequence which has been brought to light stretches without interruption from the start of the third millennium up to the fourteenth century AD. This report records the results of the seventeenth excavation campaign, carried out by the group from the University of Florence and from the “Federico II” University of Naples. Layers from the end of the third millennium have been brought to light, the passage between the Mid- and Neo-Assyrian periods. In the palace of Tukulti-Ninurta II the reception hall was discovered. For the later periods, investigation has proceeded on the Great Defensive Wall of Parthian age, and on the large edifice in the lower city.
