Gardening time: Monuments and landscape from Sardinia, Scotland and Central Europe in the very long Iron Age

Edited by Simon Stoddart, Ethan D. Aines & Caroline Malone

Gardening may seem worlds away from Nuraghi and brochs, but tending a garden is a long process involving patience, accretion and memory. Scholars argue that memories are also cultured, developed and regained. The monuments in Scotland and Sardinia are testament to the importance of memory and its role in maintaining social relations.

This collection of twenty-one papers addresses the theme of memory anchored to the enduring presence of monuments, mainly from Scotland and Sardinia, but also from Central Europe and the Balkans.



Grabbauten in den nördlichen Grenzprovinzen des Römischen Reiches zwischen Britannien und dem Schwarzen Meer, 1.-3. Jahrhundert n. Chr.

 Grabbauten in den nördlichen Grenzprovinzen des Römischen Reiches zwischen Britannien und  dem Schwarzen Meer, 1.-3. Jahrhundert n. Chr.

Monographien des RGZM

Grabbauten dienten nicht nur dem Gedächtnis an eine Person, sondern auch der Familienrepräsentation. Die Übernahme bzw. Transformation römischer Statussymbole durch Einheimische in den Provinzen ist daher ein Gradmesser der Romanisierung. Die Adaption mediterraner Formen kann ein Bruch mit indigenen Traditionen bedeuten oder – im Gegenteil – in bestimmter Auswahl ein Instrument sein, um traditionelle Werte und Muster in einem zeitgemäßen Präsentationsrahmen zu kommunizieren.
Die Studie zeigt auf, woher die Vorbilder stammten, welche gesellschaftlichen Gruppen sie vermittelten und welche sie aufgriffen und sogar weiterentwickelten. Denkmal­topo­graphie und Architekturtypen werden dabei ebenso berücksichtigt wie die durch sie zur Wirkung gebrachten Medien Grabinschrift bzw. Skulptur. Hierbei zeigen sich aufschlussreiche Unterschiede zwischen den Rhein- und Donauprovinzen.

Who Saved the Parthenon? A New History of the Acropolis Before, During and After the Greek Revolution

Who Saved the Parthenon?: A New History of the Acropolis Before, During and After the Greek Revolution - cover image
In this magisterial book, William St Clair unfolds the history of the Parthenon throughout the modern era to the present day, with special emphasis on the period before, during, and after the Greek War of Independence of 1821–32. Focusing particularly on the question of who saved the Parthenon from destruction during this conflict, with the help of documents that shed a new light on this enduring question, he explores the contributions made by the Philhellenes, Ancient Athenians, Ottomans and the Great Powers.

Marshalling a vast amount of primary evidence, much of it previously unexamined and published here for the first time, St Clair rigorously explores the multiple ways in which the Parthenon has served both as a cultural icon onto which meanings are projected and as a symbol of particular national, religious and racial identities, as well as how it illuminates larger questions about the uses of built heritage. This book has a companion volume with the classical Parthenon as its main focus, which offers new ways of recovering the monument and its meanings in ancient times.

St Clair builds on the success of his classic text, The Reading Nation in the Romantic Period, to present this rich and authoritative account of the Parthenon’s presentation and reception throughout history. With weighty implications for the present life of the Parthenon, it is itself a monumental contribution to accounts of the Greek Revolution, to classical studies, and to intellectual history.

Camera Palaestina: Photography and Displaced Histories of Palestine

Salim Tamari, Issam Nassar and Stephen Sheehi
book: Camera Palaestina

Camera Palaestina is a critical exploration of Jerusalemite chronicler Wasif Jawhariyyeh (1904–1972) and his seven photography albums entitled The Illustrated History of Palestine. Jawhariyyeh’s nine hundred images narrate the rich cultural and political milieu of Ottoman and Mandate Palestine. Nassar, Sheehi, and Tamari locate this archive at the juncture between the history of photography in the Arab world and the social history of Palestine. Shedding new light on this foundational period, the authors explore not just major historical events and the development of an urban bourgeois lifestyle but a social field of vision of Palestinian life as exemplified in the Jerusalem community. Tracking the interplay between photographic images, the authors offer evidence of the unbroken field of material, historical, and collective experience from the living past to the living present of Arab Palestine.
